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!

er, folks? I just went and check several cast lists….we get Charity Burbage, but none of the cast lists for DH1 have the three Dursleys!

Seriously, go check yourselves. we all assumed the Dursleys will be there (I still do, actually), but has the casting of Melling, Griffiths and Shaw not been officially announced? I did find one online uncredited reference to a representative of Griffiths saying he would be back…

i’m certain its a matter of timing and contracts and all that…just an oddity, that’s all, that caught my eye

hi , sorry for any confusion . the profiles of elliott francis and grace francis are errors and we have both updated them. elliott was a slug club member in the last film not in the new one and a slytherin in the next and grace francis is just a griffindor in the final film. again sorry for confusion. :)

Mary Epworth and the Jubilee Band has some awesome music. I have never heard of them (or her) before.

Awesome. I’ll be putting that on my MySpace….

I wonder who she will be and if she will be recognizable.

Weaselymy king, you are absolutely right. I thought they should have included Dumbledore’s funeral at the end to round off the Half Blood Prince movie better. Maybe the Slug club is just a short scene, but i sure hope they don’t drop Fleur and Bill’s wedding. That is wherr the Death Eaters should appear.

Ok, in addition to my comment above re the Dursleys not being officially cast yet, I would also point out we dont yet know about Jamie W as the only one of the young actors (due to his ‘trouble’). Finally, imagine the fuss that will be made over the casting of the six children —Albus, Lily and James Potter; Rose and Hugo Weasley; Scorpius Malfoy —all of which still need to be announced as far as i can tell

I don’t want to look at the pictures because I don’t want to judge. . . I’ll just see it in the theatres.

It seems like with the 7th movie they’re adding new characters (though I’m not sure how big a role they will play). I wonder if the senior students will be in the battle at Hogwarts part.
