potter-castmembers

We've watched them grow up before our very eyes, and in some cases, we've grown up right along with them.

The-Moment-of-Truth-Theatre-bonnie-wright-35054592-1024-724

Peter Ustinov's The Moment of Truth was last produced professionally in 1951. Exploring warfare and its relationship with politically devised propaganda, the text is both entertaining and insightful and one that should be capable of resonating with an audience of today similarly to one of half a century ago. Unfortunately, in the hands of The New Actors Company, this isn't quite achieved. Read More »

Last Tuesday Bonnie Wright, who portrayed Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter films, attended a London screening of her directorial debut Separate We Come, Separate We Go. The 12-minute film tells the story of a 10-year-old dealing with the meaning of loss, and also stars Wright’s fellow-Harry Potter star David Thewlis (Professor Lupin). At the event Bonnie discussed a variety of topics, ranging from her development of this project to the state of English film today. Separate We Come, Separate We Go is the culmination of Wright’s film degree from London’s University of the Arts. She said of collaborating on the project with other students: It was hard to gain that balance in collaboration because it was about degrees being equally marked. But at the same time if someone didn’t stand up and be the director the film would not have been made…Being thrown into the group was the most interesting thing. My film would not be the same if it were not for those collaborators, such as costume, set design and others. Read the full interview and see photos of the event here. Separate We Come, Separate We Go will be available to view online before the year’s end. ... Read More »
