Actor Ciaran Hinds, who will be portraying the character of Aberforth Dumbledore in the upcoming "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" films, was interviewed by the Hill-man Morning Show which broadcasts out of WAAF in Boston earlier today.  In the interview, which can be heard here starting around the 5:15 mark, Mr. Hinds spoke very briefly about his part in the film, relating how "you might have a flash of my eyes in one of [the films]."  The actor went on to discuss his role as Aberforth by saying:

Basically I'm there to play one long scene where I explain to the kids - who are not kids anymore - about some part of the history of Albus Dumbledore's life that they weren't fully up to the mark in. But I did get, for one split second, someone put a wand in my hand and I got to flash it.
Many thanks to SS!

Reading the books is one joy, seeing the scenes in film is yet a totally different thrill. It would have been great just to be an extra somewhere in the movies.

Wow, the picture this site used makes him look young. I’ve seen Cirian Hinds when he played Julius Ceasar in ROME and when he was in Steven Spielberg’s MUNICH and he is a LOT older than that picture up above!
