Bonnie Wright joins cast of “Who Killed Nelson Nutmeg?”
It was announced this week that Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) will be joining the cast of a film called Who Killed Nelson Nutmeg? The children’s adventure film, which is currently being filmed in Dorset, UK, is described as follows:
On their annual summer holiday, four misfit kids suspect that the holiday park’s mascot has been murdered! But no one believes them, so they start their own investigation to find out… Who Killed Nelson Nutmeg?
Bonnie’s role was announced a few days ago, with a revelation about what exactly her role would be:
We are pleased to confirm a late addition to the Nelson Nutmeg cast, Bonnie Wright. Bonnie is perhaps best known for playing Ginny Weasley in all of the Harry Potter films, right from the beginning of the series. Like a lot of the other actors from the franchise she has grown up in front of the camera. Now, in Who Killed Nelson Nutmeg[?], the tables are turned as she is the experienced adult actor who can guide our young cast.
Bonnie plays the part of Diane, the new manager at Nelson’s Retreat holiday park who arrives when good old ‘Uncle Derek’, the kids[‘] favourite, is called away unexpectedly. The very next day, Nelson Nutmeg goes missing! Can our heroic gang find the crucial evidence against her?
The film is currently being funded through Kickstarter, and you can still back the project on their website. Bonnie joined the cast for the last week of filming. Danny Stack, one of the co-directors, said,
We’re absolutely thrilled that Bonnie’s part of the film. She loved the script and is keen to support children and family films, especially indie productions like ours.
The film is currently due to be released in June 2015. Find out more about the film here.
