The mighty Auror has fallen and his journey in the magical world is now complete. This word comes as actor Brendan Gleeson has announced he has finished his role as legendary Auror Mad-Eye Moody in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Noting that he completed filming less than two weeks ago, the Hollywood Reporter cites "Gleeson noted he just wrapped filming "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" and bid farewell to his Mad-Eye Moody. "I waved goodbye to him a week and a half ago. It was great fun, playing Mad-Eye was a hoot."

Actor Brendan Gleeson made these remarks in the press room last night as he was celebrating his win at the Emmys  as "Best Actor in a Mini-series" for his role as Winston Churchill in the HBO special "Into the Storm." You can see photos of the actor at the Emmy Awards here from Getty. Congratulations Brendan Gleeson!

Its kind of depressing.. Some great actors are finishing up their HP roles. He was absolutely amazing, and congratulations on the Emmy!
That must mean they’re done with the 7 Potters scene officially!

I felt sad when I read the news item… Then I started to chastise myself for having so much emotion over a piece of fiction (Wonderful though it was)… and then I started reading everyone’s comments, and realized…. I’M NORMAL!!!!

Thank You Leaky, and Thank You Potter fans.


I love that Brendan Gleason enjoyed the part he played.

I love him. He is so blunt playing Mad-Eye and he really gives the charater more of a connection with Harry.

This makes me sad. It’s like saying goodbye all over again. And we’re going to have to do it with every character….

I’m so excited for these last two movies but at the same time I’m sad that we’re coming to the end. I try and cling to the thought that it won’t actually be the end til 2011 and then we will hopefully have the dvd sets, ultimate edition dvds, extras and the Scottish Book to look forward to after that.
