Zoe Kravitz Talks About The Importance of Her Character in Fantastic Beasts

//Por Aline Michel - Tuesday, 17 de January de 2017 às 10:35

Zoe Kravitz had a small part in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. All we could see was a picture of her character, Leta Lestrange, amongst Newt Scamander’s belongings.

Although, in an new interview, the actress revealed that her part will be more important on the following movies of the series, thanks to her involvement with Eddie Redmayne’s character:

The relationship between Leta and Newt Scamander is a complex relationship, so I think there will be a lot of time for that to grow and develop, which will be fun.”

The actress also said she still didn’t have any access to the sequel’s script and, therefore, still doesn’t know how the relationship will be developed.

The complete interview can be found on the Collider‘s website.

Stay tuned on Potterish for more news!

Sonia Friedman, “Cursed Child” Producer, Tops The Stage’s 100 List

//Por Caroline Dorigon - Monday, 09 de January de 2017 às 15:21

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child‘s theatre producer, Sonia Friedman, topped The Stage‘s theatre’s power list of the 100 most influential people in theatre in 2017. It’s the first time Friedman reaches that position.

“I feel extremely lucky to do a job I love so much and to have had such a stimulating and creatively diverse year,” said Friedman, the second woman to reach first place.

“Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was always likely to be a licence to print money. What has made it really special was that Friedman and her fellow creatives resisted the temptation to treat the production as a cash cow and created something truly magical, original and – above all – theatrical”, compliments Allistair Smith, The Stage’s editor.

Three other names of the Cursed Child appears on the list: director John Tiffany (15th), actress Noma Domezweni (22nd) and writer Jack Thorne (50th).

Warner Bros. Studio Tour London will have a feature dedicated to Dobby

//Por Rodrigo Cavalheiro - Wednesday, 04 de January de 2017 às 12:06

The Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter, located on the Leavesden Studios, where the eight “Harry Potter” films and “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” were filmed, announced on Wednesday (4) a new feature, dedicated to Dobby, the house-elf.

The new feature, named “Directing Dobby”, will be dedicated to showing how the filmmakers behind the Harry Potter movies brought the house-elf to life, from a tennis ball on a stick to guide the cast to incredibly detailed models, which included hand-painted veins in the eyes.

During the activities, that will happen between February 4th and March 31st (2017), the visitors wil have the opportunity to see details of the model created by the Creature and Make-Up Effects team, since it will be removed from its display and put in the centre of the Great Hall. Number four, Privet Drive will also be available to the public, including the hundred of flying Hogwarts letters sent to Harry Potter and a really special visit from the house-elf.

In addition to that, a motion capture experience will be available to the visitors. Three different stages of the motion capture used in Dobby will be shown, reflecting the visitors’ movements, from an initial wireframe to the fully-rendered version, exactly like he is in the films.

More information and tickets can be found on their official website. The tickets must be booked in advance and can’t be bought directly on the studio.

Find Out Why Robin Williams Was Rejected For The Part of Hagrid

//Por Ana Beatriz Fontes - Monday, 02 de January de 2017 às 22:41

Robin Williams is a famous American actor, who had in his resume works like “Mrs. Doubtfire”, “Good Will Hunting” and “Dead Poets Society”. He never got any part related to Harry Potter, but recently it was announced that he attempted to get Hagrid’s.

Janet Hirshenson, casting director of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, told the Huffington Post that Robin looked for Chris Columbus to negotiate his part in the film because he really wanted it. Although, Chris Columbus had to refuse, since only British actors could be a part of it.

“Robin Williams had called [director Chris Columbus] because he really wanted to be in the movie, but it was a British-only edict, and once he said no to Robin, he wasn’t going to say yes to anybody else”, said Janet.

Even for Harry the rule was valid. The only American actor who auditioned for Potter was Liam Aiken, who had worked with Chris Columbus in “Stepmom”. But, even so, Daniel Radcliffe was always the director’s favourite.

Nowadays it’s hard to believe there could be anyone other than Robbie Coltrane as Hagrid. He got the part as the half-giant as J.K. Rowling’s personal choice, and there are no doubts that his acting is great. But can you imagine how it would have been if Robin was chosen as Hagrid?
