A minor update today regarding Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Widely expected and previously reported, the Dursleys will indeed seen in the final films with the agents for Harry Melling recently updating his page with word that he will reprise his role once again as Dudley Dursley for Deathly Hallows. This of course follows previous confirmation from Richard Griffiths last year that he would be back as Uncle Vernon, with Fiona Shaw also expected to return as Aunt Petunia.

This is very good news. I didn’t hear much about the Dursleys and their role in the final movie, and was concerned that they may have been cut. That would have been very upsetting to not include them when there is such a poignant scene between them (especially Dudley) and Harry.
That’s so weird I was just wondering were they coming back, that’s brilliant. We all know there’s the odd plot holes in the movies. I really hope they tie everything up in a satisfying way for the movie audiences. I mean people step back here, the industry rarely sees such a long standing and succinct franchise as this, if ever at this level. We all feel pretty confident that the novels will stay firm as one of children’s favourites for the next century. But the BA in Film in me can’t wait to see the legacy of this film series in the next 30 years
And in a much more pointless note, Harry Melling now looks like a friend of mine except he has blonde hair! I’m gonna picture my friend now when I read DH, not sure he’d be too enamored with that
