Warwick Davis to wrap filming in June, gives his thoughts on Deathly Hallows split

In a new interview, actor Warwick Davis, who plays Professor Flitwick and Griphook in the Harry Potter films, discusses how he first got the role more than 10 years ago and that he will be wrapping up his role in June: “It was an audition process, yes. I’d had my ear out for a while, because I’d read the book and thought that it could be really good. And when I heard that they were doing it I knew that I had to get on to this. So the agent said that I had an audition, I prepared well for it, went in and did it. It was a great experience, I had lots of fun with it, and I came away with a good feeling.” He also talked about his feelings on the final film being split into two: “I think it was good, because I think sometimes in the past we could have done that with the other stories, because they are so rich. I'm never actually disappointed… well, I am disappointed because sometimes it leaves my parts out… but I think the readership is sometimes disappointed. So I think it’s a really good decision, because we can ... Read More »

Tweets from Potter stars reveal Deathly Hallows updates

If you're a Potter fan and a Twitter user, chances are you follow Oliver Phelps and Warwick Davis and saw some Deathly Hallows-related updates they've made recently. First, actor Warwick Davis (who has previously played Professor Flitwick) confirmed he will indeed play Griphook in Deathly Hallows. Although this has been hinted at for some time (set pictures like this one tend to confirm these kinds of things), it's the first time we've gotten direct word. Second, Oliver Phelps updated his Twitter with word that he is the “first actor in the UK to have a VFX MOVA facial capture scan. Exciting technology.” We presume this is for special effects in Deathly Hallows as it's the only film he's working on right now. Thanks to all you Twitter users who e-mailed with the tips!

MTV News talks with Warwick Davis

UPDATE 2: The article is up again, with a correction at the bottom. The actor who has played Professor Flitwick in all of the Potter films recently spoke to MTV News. Davis speaks about the positive side of having Deathly Hallows split into two: “I think that’s a good idea because when you try and squeeze these quite lengthy novels into a two-hour movie, a two-and a half hour film there is gonna be stuff that’s left out,” Davis enthused. “There’s so much in the last book, I think it’ll make two really good films. It’s worthy of that.” The article incorrectly states that Davis played Griphook in Sorcerer's Stone; he was actually played by Vern Troyer. Davis played both a Gringotts bank teller and Flitwick in Sorcerer's Stone. Read the full entry here! Read More »
