It continues to be a quiet period for the actors in the Harry Potter cast as they promote completed projects and begin to wrap on "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" filming. Oliver and James Phelps (George and Fred Weasley, respectively) have been interviewed by Canadian newspaper The Globe and Mail as Harry Potter: The Exhibition opened last week in Ontario. Oliver Phelps describes the brothers as "fortunate" to have been able to play the Weasley twins, "characters where you can have a laugh." He continued to say that the films are "coming to an end at the right time for everybody."

In terms of the actors' future plans, "as it stands, we’re going to carry on the acting," said James Phelps, "there’s a couple of things in the pipeline, all deciding on date of wrap on Potter, so yeah, we’ll play that for a couple of years and go from there. Definitely staying in the industry." The Weasley twin actors also talked about fan encounters, auditions and friendships within the cast; you can find the full interview on The Globe and Mail website at this link.

Secondly, Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) and Robert Pattinson (Cedric Diggory) are on the 200-strong longlist for TIME Magazine's 2010 100 Poll. The poll asks you to vote for the "leaders, artists, innovators and icons" who you would place on the year's list of the 100 most influential people in the world. The website declares Watson "a powerhouse in her own right" and comments, "Pattinson's face — however pale — will be omnipresent" this summer following the release of the third film in the Twilight saga. View the full list in and vote here on the TIME website.

A number of new stories have emerged related to Rupert Grint's (Ron Weasley) latest film projects. Our Order Partner has a brand new clip from upcoming release "Cherrybomb." You can view the clip here on the YouTube channel.

In related news, there are a number of additional "Cherrybomb" screenings in Belfast from the 7th to the 13th of May. The screenings will take place at the Queen's Film Theatre at 6.30pm. A Q&A session with directors Glenn Leyburn and Lisa Barros D'Sa will follow the first showing on the 7th. You can buy the tickets for the screenings on the Queen's Film Theatre website at this link. "Cherrybomb" will be released in the U.K. on the 23rd of April and you can find out whether a cinema near you will be showing it by visiting the official website. also reported that Grint's other recent project, "Wild Target" was screened at the International Beaune Film Festival between the 8th and 11th of April.

Just reading the interview by James and Oliver and one said about playing golf with some of the other people on set. It must really be like a second family for them. I’ll be sad when it all finishes.
