Actors in the News Weekly Roundup

In the Actors in the News Roundup this week we have for you a new interview, a film release date and a number of new photos and videos featuring actors from the Harry Potter cast.

Two weeks ago, we told you about an interview with Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) in The Times in which the actress spoke about her fair trade fashion range with People Tree. A new interview with Ms. Watson is now available on the Daily Mail website along with a number of photos from the English country garden photoshoot for People Tree. "The clothes are very British," says Ms. Watson of the location for the photoshoot, "which is why we shot them in an English country garden – it’s all very strawberries and cream and tennis." More tidbits from the interview:

I didn’t want this collection to be all about me. This is not a celebrity endorsement, it is about creating something that is genuinely a great idea and about making a difference through fashion.
It sounds like a cliché, but we are the future. The earth is ours and will be our children’s, and I think that more than any other generation we are aware of environmental and humanitarian issues. That’s why it’s so great that People Tree is doing something aimed at people of my age – because we do care and we will buy with a conscience. I hope that more companies will follow People Tree’s example.
You can find the photos from the article here in our galleries.

Thanks to our Order Partner,, we can also tell you that the film "Wild Target" will be released in the U.K. on the 9th of April this year. The film, which stars Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) in the role of Tony, tells the story of a middle-aged assassin (Bill Nighy.) "Wild Target"'s release date can be found on the Film Distributors' Association website via this link.

Finally, to celebrate the approaching BAFTAs, InStyle magazine have featured a number of actors as the "Best of British Talent" including Rupert Grint and Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley.) A behind the scenes video featuring Mr. Grint and Ms. Wright from the "Best of British Talent" photoshoot can be found here in our video galleries. Additionally, the magazine threw a "Best of British Talent" event; photos from the red carpet can be found here in our galleries as well as a video, which can be found in our video galleries via this link.

Very cool! Emma is very well spoken and speaks for things worth speaking for! Does that make sense?

I’m so sad that People Tree won’t ship to the US.

It’s great that Emma Watson is supporting fair trade companies.

I too am ecologically conscience and try and buy ethically sourced products as much as possible. That’s why I think it’s wonderful that Emma is involved in People Tree; especially if it will encourage more young people to think about where their clothes come from and how they are made and become interested in fair trade fashions.

I’m pleased that In Style has included Rupert in their “Best of British Actors”, but I’m surprised by their inclusion of Bonnie. She is attractive, but I don’t think we’ve seen great acting from her. Surely, Emma Watson is a more appropriate choice.

I agree that this “weekly roundup” should be a regular feature. =)
