Cross posting from the Deathly Hallows thread because HBP is also mentioned -

This just in from TLC!

Geraldine Somerville Confirms Return as Lily Potter for "Deathly Hallows"
DH Film
Actress Geraldine Somerville has confirmed her intent to return as Lily Potter for the final “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” film, as well as the upcoming “Half-Blood Prince.” In an interview with the Manchester Evening News, Ms. Somerville, who appearances in the films have been brief, says “I’ll just come in and do my little, ‘I am Lily Potter,’ and go quietly.” The actress, who is a mother of three children, notes they have not seen the Potter films as of yet given their young age, and says she does get recognized by Potter fans while out and out, saying she does get noticed “Occasionally a bit, I suppose. I’m not surprised when it happens – I am in it!”


I don't remember the adult James or Lily actually making an appearance in HBP - perhaps for Harry's picture album?
Ohhh, interesting! thanks for posting

Re: The All Inclusive HBP Thread v11

I have a quick question, I heard it was rumored that Scrimigeor was cut. Does anyone know if that's true?

Just because Lily's in it doesn't mean Harry's father has to be. My best guess is either they're dropping in some of the Severus-Lily hints early or - much more likely - she'll be in some old photo of the Slug Club. Or maybe both.

Yeah, I had heard that too. That "mystery source" on IMDb, right? But this Snape thing I'm talking about was posted after that. God, I wish I could find it! I even remember one of the people talking about it (maybe 'hermeschick'?) made a pretty funny comment about what she hoped Rickman would have to say in that scene. Something about offering whoever punched Harry "my...sincerest...gratitude."

We're not sure if this is true or false, but we're crossing our fingers for a cameo appearance...check the HBP list in ArryGrotter's sig...I believe Yates said he would want Bill Nighy to play him. But it may have been someone else...

It's still just a rumor, but there is no confirmation that anybody has been cast for the role... so it's not looking good at this point.

If that's true they really are increasing Luna's profile in the movie. This would be the second scene (Felix Felicis scene) they assign to Luna from another character.

Anybody has an idea of who the "Feather wizard" mentioned on the cast list at Imdb is?

Re: The All Inclusive HBP Thread v11

I wouldnt mind if they have Luna do that. I think Evana is a great Luna and this would mean having more of her on screen. Despite the purist I might be sometimes. a change like this one I will not mind.

Re: The All Inclusive HBP Thread v11

If they are messing with that scene anyway, I think Snape is a better choice. The book has that great scene with Harry hating Snape and Snape making snide remarks and taking points as they walk together form the gates to the Great Hall, but I think that would be far less effective without all the internal dialogue about how much Harry now hates Snape. A new scene instead of that would be good, and would not tend to lead people to the right conclusion about "who is the HBP?" And would contribute to the dislike for Snape opf audience members, preparing them to accept him as a murdering traitor in preparation for the big twist in DH.

I think anybody that has seen the movies already knows how much Harry hates Snape. It would be good to have Snape do it because it would show what an ambivalent character Snape is... but I'm with Montse on this one... the more Luna, the better.

He might be a "better choice" but as someone mentioned earlier (very sorry i forget the name, but you know who you are.) If Snape were to get Harry, by the time he realized he was missing, he'd have to go from the castle, to the gates, to Hogsmeade station, and by that time the train would be gone. It would make more sense to have Luna find him, and i'm one of those who believes Luna should have more screentime as well. Hmmm, hopefully they keep it to where Harry brings Luna to SLughorn's party. More LUNA!

Melissa Anelli (from TLC and Pottercast) said she had seen Luna's dress for Slughorn party in her set report... so that's pretty much confirmed.

That would be me.

But, yeah, changing that to Snape wouldn't work at all because of the logistics of the timing. It wouldn't be believable, IMO. It would make a lot more sense to just cut the bit about him being late to the feast and have one of his friends find him. Ron and Hermione would be the obvious choices, but they could also go with Luna, Neville, and/or Ginny. I think any one of them would work, but I lean more towards Ginny simply because it would work towards building up Harry's eventual relationship with her.

And I believe Harry taking Luna to Slughorn's party has been confirmed.

Luv the rubber ducky montse!: Why would they change this scene? I kind of liked having tonks rescue harry as written. However, if it's luna I am okay with that too. I think she will have plenty of screen time in this film with this, the felix felicis, announcing the quidditch game, slughorn's party, etc. Yates must really like evanna!

Re: The All Inclusive HBP Thread v11

I favor it being Ginny who helps Harry on the train, not Luna. Nothing against Luna but it would add to the building relationship between Harry and Ginny.

Yeah, but Luna is cuter. I'm perfectly okay with them butchering the relationships and character development and plot and everything if the result is that Luna gets more screen time.

The more of her, the better, I say.

That's a good idea actually. Anything to strengthen the bond between Harry and Ginny I think would be a welcome change. The audience has to root for these two and care about their relationship.

Good reasoning.

I would like it if Luna rescues Harry. They might be able to slip in a funny line for her if she finds him. It sounds good to me.

Re: The All Inclusive HBP Thread v11

Does the movie audience even know how long the Hogwarts Express stays at the castle after it drops off the kids? I read the books, and I don't know that. Maybe the conductor stays overnight in Hogsmeade and heads back to London the next morning. Just sayin.'

My point is, I don't think the movie fans would ever question it. I wouldn't. And even in the books, Snape has a habit of just "appearing" on the scene when Harry's in trouble - which makes sense, considering his secret role as Harry's de facto bodyguard - so it's not like it would be wildly OOC or even very surprising. (No more surprising, certainly, than his sudden and completely unexplained appearance in the Shack in PoA. )

And if it's really a problem, just have the teachers patrolling the station instead of the Aurors - after all, that's how Tonks found him in the book - and have Snape, who we learned in the very first film watches over Harry anyway, notice that Harry didn't get off the train. Fait accompli.

You do?? I don't. They cut the extended Potions class from PS with Harry talking back and losing a point for his "cheek." They cut the shouting matches (and Snape's flip-out at the end) from PoA. They cut Harry's reaction to the revelation that Snape had been a Death Eater from GoF. And they cut Harry's bizarre leap from strong dislike to murderous hatred when he concluded that Snape was somehow, some way responsible for Black's death in OotP. The most abrasive thing Movie!Snape has said thus far to Harry is, "Your father was a swine!" The most abrasive thing that Harry's said to Snape is, "And I'd appreciate it if you'd lower your wand."

They whitewash these characters, all of them, in the movies. That's why we never see Snape's insecurity, his immaturity, or his explosive temper, and why we see only the barest hints of his utter irrationality when it comes to Harry. It's why we didn't see angsty emo!Harry, or Harry being the maddening little smart-aleck he can be. It's why we saw a calm, mature, paternal Sirius Black instead of the bitter, complaining, "you're-no-fun-Harry" Black we saw in the books. And on and on. And on.

And I frankly don't see that changing any time soon. If they follow their past pattern, Harry's negative feelings for Snape will progress throughout the film as his suspicions of Snape/Draco increase. But he won't go into the film with anything but his usual ho-hum "Oh, yeah, Snape, he's kind of a git, isn't he?" attitude. I'd bet real money on it.
