Broadbent: Slughorn “a decent man, but a weak man”

The LA Times has conducted a new interview with Jim Broadbent, the actor who portrays Horace Slughorn in Half-Blood Prince. Jim discusses what it's like to come into this franchise after five out of seven films are already complete:

“In the first one, I'm sure there was a bit of nervousness about whether it would all work, but now it's a unique position to be in, to be making a blockbuster without a lot of nervousness. It's hugely beneficial for the creativity to have a great deal of certainty about the process and the success.”

Jim also describes the character of Slughorn, calling him “a good man, a decent man, but a weak man”. Check the full interview out right here.
