Minor casting news today as UK Casting Call Pro has been updated with several actors who have been cast as extras or 'featured' extras in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Listed are:

Elliott Francis: "Featured Slug Club Member"
Grace Francis: "Gryffindor Club Member"
Aaron Virdee:  "Senior, Gryffindor"
Louisa Warren: "Senior, Hufflepuff"
Rayman Jilani: "Background Artiste"
Annette Elstob: "Young Woman"

Also thanks to reader James for letting us know as reported in the Times,  Mary Epworth of UK band Mary Epworth and the Jubilee Band has been cast as an extra in the film, with the article specifically noting it was the singer/actress cast (not the band) "Epworth has appeared in Gavin and Stacey — “It was very much a case of ‘Don’t talk to the talent!’” — and is poised to loiter in the background of the next Harry Potter movie."

Thanks for the UKProCall link, UHP!

The slug club will probably be involved as Slughorn brings in a group of people. Marcus Belby would have been there but you know…. sigh I’ve always wanted to be in HP movie. :’(

It’s cool that they’re adding a Hufflepuff. In the movies, most of the students are usually Sytherin or Gryffindor.

Speaking of Houses, why is the main page still green? Ravenclaw won the last House Cup.

Hmmm.. in the 7th book there isnt much mention of the Slug Club so are they maybe bringing in parts they missed from the 6th? Because if so there is a lot to add, and not just the slug club
