Actor Interviews

Bill Nighy has appeared in a video on ITN's YouTube channel in which he discusses his role in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." The actor, who portrays Rufus Scrimgeour, spoke to the network briefly about the film, commenting that he was "pleased to be in it, and pleased to be working with Dan, Rupert and Emma, and with David Yates, the director, who I've worked with a great deal." Nighy described the set as "big, massive [and] friendly," partly as he "grew up with most of the people in it." "I thought I was going to be the only actor of a certain age who wasn't in Harry Potter," continued the actor, "and it turns out not to be the case so it's kind of cool."

Although he couldn't reveal his upcoming projects, Nighy also mentioned the upcoming release of "Wild Target," in which he stars alongside Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) and Emily Blunt ("The Devil Wears Prada," "The Young Victoria"). You can find the video on YouTube at this link.

I’m so excited about Bill Nighy! He’s such a great stage actor, and he was absolutely hilarious in Love Actually.

Rupert Grint is going to be an assassin apprentice? It’ll be interesting to see him outside of HP. What’s with the movie biz putting out like 100 apprentice movies at once. Wierd.
P.S. Night plays great angry guy rolls, should do well in this part.

I enjoyed his role in Pirates of the Caribbean, so I’m hoping his brief appearance in DH will do him justice.

Bill Nighy is just awesome. Like someone said on the previous page, I cant think of anything that he’s been in that I dont love. I have always imagined Scrimgeour as looking like Bill Nighy, ever since they announced he was cast I’ve been squeeing about it :D
It’s so cool that he is excited and happy about being a part of HP :)

Bill Nighy was brilliant in The boat that rocked and Underworld so he should be just as good in DH.
