GMTV in the UK continues their string of video interviews with cast members of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood PrinceAs seen at this link ( UPDATE: Now available in our galleries) here is a rare interview with the delightful Mark Williams who plays Arthur Weasley, where he discusses falling down during the torrential rainstorm earlier this week during the UK premiere of Half-Blood Prince in London, England. He also confirms his return as the Patriarch of the Weasley family in Deathly Hallows and mentions reading the script for Part One. Jessie Cave also recounts how she landed the part of Lavender Brown in the new film.

Thanks Wendy!

Awww how adorable is Jessie in that interview! And it’s great to see Mark doing an interview.

Now, if only we could find interviews with some of the other adult actors, Alan Rickman and Helena B-C, and Michael Gambon and Dame Maggie Smith, etc.

He was meant to play the role of Mr. Weasley until the very end.

Cool! I like Williams’ portrayal of Arthur a lot. He’s so airy! Seriously, the continuity of the cast throughout this series is remarkable.

lovely interview, though got to say that Jessie dresses like Luna’s slightly more eccentric sister!
