Jessie Cave talks Half-Blood Prince with the LA Times
As part of their ongoing Half-Blood Prince sneak peek series, the Los Angeles Times has a new interview with Jessie Cave. She'll be playing Lavender Brown in Half-Blood Prince.
In the interview, Jessie touches on all aspects of the film including how she initially got the role:
Q: For your final audition, what scene did you get to act out with Rupert?
A: We actually had to improvise for a good 15 or 20 minutes, which is very scary. It’s a really long time. The director, David Yates, was there and he was just like, “Hi. Right. Here’s a plate of biscuits, Jessie. It’s a lovely plate of chocolate biscuits and I want you to do whatever you want with these biscuits.’ Rupert was in the room, sitting on the sofa, and I just thought, ‘What the hell am I going to do with this plate of biscuits?’
Q: What did you end up doing?
A: I thought, ‘I’m just going to go for it.’ And I think Rupert was a bit scared, really. The biscuits were past the sofa, away from me so I kind of just tangled myself around Rupert and just made it really obvious that I didn’t really care about the biscuits. I just wanted to be near him. I think he was quite scared.
