Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

Kelly Macdonald (Helena Ravenclaw in Harry Potter) was in the recent film version of Anna Karenina. She was apparently also in the Decoy Bride - this film didn't make it to a cinema near me which was a pity as I really wanted to see it as it had David Tennant in....

Watched Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. Ciaran Hinds (Aberforth Dumbledore) played one of the villains.

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

I just saw a version of Peter Pan on t.v., dated 2003. Jason Isaacs was Mr. Darling/Capt. Hook.
He spoke just like Lucius Malfoy, same slow pace.

Anna Karenina also has Shirley Henderson (Myrtle) who was also in Trainspotting with Kelly MacDonald.

Kelly MacDonald was also in The Girl in the Cafe with Bill Nighy (Scrimgeour).

Peter Pan wasn't a successful movie and Isaacs said in an interview that it nearly tanked his career. He was grateful to the HP movies for rescuing him.

....I miss David Tennant....

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

Just saw the new Great Expectations, directed by Mike Goblet of Fire Newell.

Good, solid, faithful adaptation which sometimes felt a bit rushed. But I liked it more than the BBC version last year, which truncated the story too much.

Quite a few HP regulars feature: Ralph Fiennes gives a powerful, moving performance as Magwitch and Helena Bonham Carter was born to play Miss Havisham.

Robbie Hagrid Coltrane plays Jaggers. Coltrane is physically very different from Canon Jaggers but gives a subtle, distinguished performance which captures Jaggers perfectly. Jessie Lavender Cave does a great job as Biddy, an underestimated Dickens woman.

Worth watching, particularly for Ralph and Helena.

I also believe the girl who played Rose (Ron and Hermione's daughter) is in the movie too.

I was watching the first two Game of Thrones seasons, and was happy to see Natalia Tena, who plays Tonks in the series. Ciaran Hinds, who plays Aberforth Dumbledore, will be in the next season. I think there are a couple others, but I can't remember.

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

Michelle Fairley, who played Mrs. Granger, is Catelyn Stark. Bradley James, who played Argus Filch, is Lord Frey.

Gary Oldman acts in loads of films. My favorite was Dracula. He was in The Dark Knight too.
didn't Kelly Macdonald also voice Merida in Brave?

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

This isn't a movie, and I'm not sure about posting the link to the site, but Rupert Grint will be joining a new CBS comedy pilot, "Super Clyde." He'll be playing a fast food worker who dreams of becoming a super hero

Re: Noticing HP Actors in Other Movies

It's done by the same guy who created "My Name is Earl" and "Raising Hope", so there's a good chance this will last.
