A few stories relating to the production of Half-Blood Prince have appeared online today.
- Ralph Fiennes, the actor who plays Lord Voldemort in the Potter films, has revealed in an interview with Ain't It Cool News that he won't be appearing in the sixth film. When asked about if he is signed for Deathly Hallows, he says "not yet."
- On ITV's This Morning, Damian Lewis (Helen McCrory's husband) revealed that Helen is filming her scenes as Narcissa Malfoy this week. Damian said she was "extremely excited" and is following blogs that are also excited.
- Lastly, a newspaper in Norway reports on some scenic filming being done in a small village called Bjorli. The crew is filming shots that will be used outside of the Hogwarts Express. With big thanks Karen, you can read a loose translation of the article at the link below.
In many days a filmteam consisting of 20 people has plowed the snowy village - secretly.
-Perfect! We have gotten the takes we need. Now we're going to film the rest in studio, filmphotograph Charlie Woodburn (34) tells.
While the others in the team turned their back to the journalists before the weekend, Woodburn could confirm that it is the ''plowingedges'' (bad english by me) from Bjorli and Lesjaskog that will be seen through the trainwindows in Scotland, when Harry Potter & Co again is on their way to Hogwarts, in ''Harry Potter and the Halfblood-Prince.
With their own helicopter whipping over the treetops, and from big platforms monterd on vans, have the filmphotographers secured the snow-takes from Lesjabygda. Many have reacted on the lowflying helicopter.
On Bjorligard Hotel before the weekend nobody was allowed to say anything. Early in the afternoon all filmequipment was packed. In a haste, the british filmmakers left the touristvillage in which dutyfulfilling people has held the team hidden.
-We waited for two months for snow in Scotland. But it was not winter before we came to Bjorli, Charlie Woodburn tells.
Even though he's only 34 years, he's experienced in the moviebusiness. With the exception of one film, he has been on board for every single of the Harry Potter-productions. His name is strongly connected to movies like ''Black Hawk Down'' and ''Bridget Jones Diary''.
He thinks that the Harry Potter-movie will be finished 'til Christmas.
Charlie has been responsible for all takes from the air. He is especially happy with the filming over Lesjaskogsvatnet (a freshwater) Thursday he filmed a lot from the helicopter on the extension between Bjorli and ┼ndalsnes.
On Lesja the filmpeople has used a big movingvan with windows like in a traincompartment. When the Harry Potter-movie comes, it's the snow on Bjorli that flashes past.
