The Harry Potter film series has done wonders for the British film industry over the years and also been able to showcase so many talents in the films as well. We certainly do see the best of British in the series. Some with big parts throughout all (or most) of the films. While others have smaller parts, or even just cameos. But they really have been such a credit for showcasing the talent which is on offer in Britain. A lot of the actors and actress are held in high regard in the theatre world. Some of my favorite actors and actress have appeared in the film series which is so refreshing to see so many of them in the same films.
A lot of well-respected actors appear in the films bringing life to the much-loved characters from the books.
Alan Rickman – Severus Snape
A very well-loved actor who always seems to be the bad guy. But is he always the bad guy in the Potter series? Well that’s the difficult thing to figure out. One minute you love Snape and the next you hate him, you love to hate him and I don’t think anyone but Rickman could have you thinking that about a character.
Today’s quote is another from Love Actually and does sum up what Christmas is all about!
“I realized that Christmas is… is the time to be with the people you love.”
The first part of the final Harry Potter film has been much talked about since, well since the book was out? Or since the last film, or maybe even both of those. I have to start by saying that I have never been the biggest fan of the Potter films, and I haven’t actually seen the last installment (Half Blood Prince). But anyway after seeing the trailer for this film I thought it looked a hell of a lot darker than the previous films. The continuing adventure, or as this film will be often referred to as the beginning of the end . . .
Set in the 1960′s when pirate/illegal radio was what everyone was listening to, to hear the latest pop and rock songs. 8 DJ’s . . . 24 hours a day . . . on a boat and guess what they have no morals. 18-year old Carl is sent to stay on the boat for a while and learns how much fun is to be had on the boat.
Billy and Joe
This is probably the funniest pairings in the form of aging singer Billy Mack (Bill Nighy) and his manager Joe (Gregory Fisher). Joe is attempting to help Billy get back on top of the music world, by releasing the cheesy “Christmas is all around” and surprisingly he does get to Christmas number 1.
Set in London in the build up to Christmas following 8 different couples and showing the different types of love that is formed in different situations.
Can I just say WOW if Billy does join the Harry Potter cast and that will be the only time I actually really want to see a Harry Potter movie.
Actor Bill Nighy is trading in his pirate’s hat for a magician’s wand – he’s reportedly set to join the cast of Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows.
The Brit starred as Davy Jones alongside Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley in Pirates of the Caribbean franchise’s second and third installments.
But he’s now being linked to the role of Minister of Magic Rufus Scrimgeour for the last movies in the boy wizard series, according to British newspaper The Independent.
If the reports are true, Nighy won’t need to spend too much time in the make-up chair as he already shares some of the character’s features. Scrimgeour is described in the book the film is based on as an “old lion” with bushy eyebrows, tawny hair, yellow eyes and wire-rimmed spectacles.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will hit cinemas in two parts, with the first half of the story due in 2010.
I guess a lot more movies will be released in August but have not been announced yet?

Yes I have a strange thing for Bill Nighy and just love Kate Winslet. I have just come across this picture, so had to blog about it.
It was taken at some awards show in January 2009. I don’t know which one, must have been some British awards I reckon. But I just adore Bill, mainly from his role as Billy Mack in ‘Love Actually’.
OK because I totally love Bill Nighy and there is not long until this film comes out. A posting of the trailer is required.
