Bill Nighy confirms role as Rufus Scrimgeour
British actor Bill Nighy has confirmed to CBBC Newsround that he will indeed play Rufus Scrimgeour in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows:
The 59-year-old, who once joked he was the “only British actor who hasn't been in Harry Potter”, told reporters of his new role at a book festival launch.
“I am in the next Harry Potter,” he told reporters.
“I will be Rufus Scrimgeour, who is the Minister of Magic and he is a very very important man.”
