CBBC Newsround - Do you want to be an extra in the fourth Harry Potter film, the Goblet of Fire?
Stupid question really!

Well, you might be in luck because you can write to the casting office from January 2004.

The casting office has confirmed to CBBC Newsround that kids can write to them from that date - but not before - otherwise your letter won't get read!

You can only contact the casting office at the Studios. Send a short letter and a recent photograph to:

Casting Office
Leavesden Studios
PO Box 322

They've asked us to ask you NOT to phone or fax. Only write.

And they can't reply to everybody, but you may stand a better chance of getting a reply if you include a self-addressed envelope.

Caution: Wizard at Work

Posted by Kirsten | 07/28/03 11:10 PM | General

You absolutely have to read this entire article! It is great!
Newsweek - Between takes at the shrieking shack—a ghoulish, precariously quaking house on the fringes of the wizard village Hogsmeade—actor Daniel Radcliffe fiddles with his magic wand. Today’s scene is a doozy: Harry Potter finally confronts the sinister (for now) Sirius Black.

OVER THE SCREECHING din of the shack, Radcliffe repeatedly shouts, “You betrayed my parents! You’re the reason they’re dead!” During a break in the action, though, he twirls his wand genially like a baton. Wait, sorry, it’s not a baton—that’d be so 12 years old. Radcliffe, who turned 14 last week, is bashing the air feverishly. He’s doing a drum solo.

To prepare for the older, bolder “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban,” Radcliffe has been listening to the Sex Pistols—which broke up 11 years before he was born—as well as edgy new acts like the Strokes and the Dandy Warhols. He’s also watching Francois Truffaut (“The 400 Blows”) and Vittorio De Sica (“The Bicycle Thief”) to get a handle on Harry’s “feelings of hopelessness.” Yes, “Azkaban” is the puberty movie in the Potter franchise—the one, says Emma Watson, who plays Hermione, in which “all those lovely, lovely hormones start coming out.” How will the movie reflect the changes afoot? “Lots of sex,” says Alfonso Cuaron, the Mexican director who’s taken over the reins of the series from Chris Columbus. “Lots of nudity. And lots of sex.” (more...)

I'm back!

Finally after 2 weeks, I am back! It was fun, but I think I was ready to come home! So much has happened in the world of Harry Potter while I was gone! First and foremost, though, I would like to wish Daniel Radcliffe a happy 14th birthday! He is growing up so fast!

British director may join ‘Potter’

Posted by Kirsten | 07/25/03 10:58 PM | General

MSNBC - ALTHOUGH THE DIRECTOR has not yet seen a script or even met with studio executives about the project, both sides are eager to work together on “Goblet.”

Should a deal be reached, Newell would be the first British filmmaker to come aboard the franchise — based on British author J.K. Rowling’s book series — and join the studio’s eclectic, international stable of “Potter” directors, including the U.S.-born Chris Columbus and Mexican Alfonso Cuaron, who directs the upcoming “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.”

Newell next directs Revolution Studios’ “Mona Lisa Smile,” starring Julia Roberts.

Pupils to stage 'Potter' ballet

Posted by Kirsten | 07/08/03 8:02 PM | General

A Harry Potter story is being turned into a ballet - after a teacher won the backing of movie giants Warner Brothers.
BBC - Dance tutor Stephanie Parrott, from Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, was given the exclusive rights to adapt Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets into a ballet production.

Dancers from Derbyshire and Staffordshire are taking part in the worldwide premier of the production in Repton, Derbyshire.

Ms Parrott had to get permission from Warner Brothers in the United States and the book's author JK Rowling to adapt the story.

She said: "The music is beautifully composed by John Williams and the fast movements in the Quidditch scenes and the elf-like movement of Dobby - we just went from there. (more...)

ABC News - The house that played host to the loathsome Dursleys and their magical nephew in the Harry Potter movies is on the market, according to British newspapers.

With fans gripped by the fifth book in JK Rowling's series, the owner of No 4 Privet Drive - in reality No 12 Picket Post Close - is putting the house up for auction with a price guide of 250,000 pounds ($A614,000). (more...)

Harry Potter Speaks German

Posted by Kirsten | 07/06/03 10:46 PM | General

Harry Potter fans in Germany couldn’t wait for the just-published fifth book by J.K. Rowling to appear on the German market. So they’ve set about to translate it themselves – over the Internet.
Deutsche Welle - Harry Potter fans the world over rejoiced when J.K. Rowling’s fifth book about the clever young wizard finally appeared in June after a three-year hiatus. But Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix has only come out in English so far. In Germany, the official translation is not scheduled to arrive on the market until Nov. 8. That’s a long time for those bitten with Potter-mania.

So what are the impatient German readers doing? They’re applying a little bit of magic, a lot of inspiration and some pretty impressive interpretive skills to whip together their own unofficial, non-commercial translation of the book. And it’s all being done on the Internet, where every curious Potter fan can take a peek into the latest round of Harry's adventures. (more...)

Eminem the Potter Fan

Posted by Ellen | 07/05/03 9:46 AM | General

Sky News - Rap star Eminem is not known for his gestures of kindness.

In fact the name of his latest tour, Anger Management, gives you some indication as to his level of tenderness.

Well apart from his devoted seven-year-old daughter Hailie, that is.

The rap star, also known as Slim Shady, has become a fan of boy wizard Harry Potter. (more...)
