It's a mother and son reunion of sorts as Fiona Shaw and Harry Melling are starring together in a new UK stage production of Bertolt Brecht's "Mother Courage and Her Children." The two, who appear in the Harry Potter films as Aunt Petunia and Dudley Dursley are set to open this weekend at the National Theatre production of the Mother Courage play which runs through December 8th. Sky Arts has rare video of rehearsal for the production which includes new interviews with both Fiona Shaw and Harry Melling and is now available here in our video galleries. Still photos of the two can be found here, here and here.

Wow! I didn’t realize how skinny Harry Melling was! I knew he wore a fat suit, but this is a big difference! I wonder how he’s going to look like in Death Hallows. Would they be following the storyline that Petunia was forcing him to diet?

The video was very interesting. I wish I were in London to watch it. Harry has grown so tall!! It’s nice that he’s working with Fiona again, even if it is a different project. And I’m also glad to hear about Sophie Stone. She was the 1st deaf student in RADA. I watched a documentary about a month ago, about how deaf people in my own country say that they’re not allowed to study drama just because they’re deaf. I hope all countries see this as an example and stop this senseless discrimination.
