Alfie Enoch Appearing in Two Plays at National Theatre
Posted by Megs

The London Theatre website has a new feature on Dean Thomas actor Alfred Enoch.  They interview the Potter star and reveal that he is in TWO plays at the National Theatre in London; Antigone and Timon Of Athens. Timon of Athens opens today (tickets here,) with Alfie playing Philotus, the synopsis is as follows:

Timon Of Athens is a wealthy friend to the rich and the powerful, a patron of the arts and an ostentatious host. He showers the cities movers and shakers with expensive gifts and unmatchable hospitality. But, happier to splash the cash than actually take responsibility for it, his money disappears.

Though he assures his trusty steward that all will be fine, he quickly finds that his former friends and ex colleagues are happier to leave him in the lurch than lend him a helping hand. After a final, vengeful banquet, Timon Of Athens disappears to a literal and emotional wasteland, nibbling on roots and damning the morally bankrupt city he left behind.

In Antigone (tickets here) Alfie is in the Chorus.  A short synopsis of the show: Desperate to gain control over a city ravaged by civil war, Creon refuses to bury the body of Antigone’s rebellious brother. Outraged, she defies his edict. Creon condemns the young woman, his niece, to be buried alive.

Some interview questions may be read below:

What was it like being part of something as huge as the Harry Potter films? Did it take over your life?
No it didn’t really. It was a lot of fun. I had read the books before I got the part so I knew exactly what it was about. I was seen in a National Youth Theatre play that was at the Globe and then went on tour and asked if I would like to audition. Initially they came around lots of schools and they came to my school and asked me to audition and I thought ‘Nahhh, why would they pick me?’ I was very defeatist about it and didn’t audition. So when the second opportunity came round I thought ‘wow, I better take it’. I was very fortunate because it’s not often you get a second chance like that.

On the first film I did 60 days [of filming] which is a lot considering I had one line! When you’re that young you just throw yourself into it and have a good time and don’t really worry about anything, which is quite nice really.

You’re currently appearing in both Antigone and Timon Of Athens. How did that come about?
I have a lot to thank my parents for. My dad was very enterprising and said, when I got the part in Harry Potter, ‘well now you’re going to need an agent’. He got me a terrific agent who has been fantastic and looked after me since I was about 11 years old. I finished the show I did at the Old Red Lion [Happy New] and I was going up for a lot of things and I eventually got offered the National to do Antigone and Timon Of Athens and I thought ‘how exciting would that be?’ Antigone’s got Christopher Eccleston and Jodie Whittaker in it and Simon Russell Beale is in Timon so I was thrilled to bits at the audition, I just thought ‘don’t cock it up now’ [laughs].

What do you think you’d be doing if you weren’t an actor?
I think I might be teaching languages. I got an email from my old Head of Spanish, who I became friends with and I still see now and then, and he said ‘just to let you know, we’ve got a temporary vacancy in school for teaching Spanish’ and I looked at it and thought ‘that would be so much fun’! That would be my own little captive audience, the classroom. Maybe that’s why it appeals.

What’s Coming From the Grand Opening of Warner Bros. Studio Tour London
Posted by Megs

Since we will not have our actual photos and videos up for a few days I thought I would let everyone know what is coming from the Grand Opening of Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter. Myself, Feltbeats and Harry Potters Page worked together to get photos and interviews with the stars.

We interviewed Tom Felton, Rupert Grint, Bonnie Wright, Harry Melling, Nick Moran, David Bradley, Nick Dudman, Mike Newell, Director David Yates, and Producers David Heyman, and David Barron. We also have footage of Alfonso Cuaron, Evanna Lynch, George Harris and a few others. In addition to interviews we also spotted David Thewlis, Natalia Tena, Warwick Davis, Alfie Enoch, Helen McCrory, Chris Rankin.

Just as a teaser we asked Harry Melling (Dudley) what it was like moving from playing a muggle in Harry Potter to a wizard in the last series of Merlin!

Photos and video will be up as soon as possible when I get home! We will also have a video from the press conference held last Thursday when WB sends it over! So make sure to stay tuned!

Jessie has also confirmed that Alfie was in one of her “Flat White” videos as well, that she will be posting soon, which is a series about a family obsessed with the drink. Many other Potter stars have been in these skits such as Evanna Lynch and Scarlett Byrne.

Potter Cast Reveal Favorite Deleted Scenes
Posted by Megs

At the DVD Launch this past weekend Crave Online asked the stars (and crew) what their favorite deleted scenes were, or what they wish they had filmed. A small selection may be read below, the rest are here.

James Phelps: For me, personally, I guess it was the actual death of Fred. That was a bit disappointing, but I guess it kind of worked more into Oliver [Phelps] and Rupert [Grint], seeing their emotion in that way. So a lot of the fans saw it in that sense, when they hadn’t thought about it before.
Oliver Phelps: I think the de-gnoming of the garden in the second film. That would have been brilliant.
James Phelps: It isn’t PC, is it?
Oliver Phelps: I was really looking forward to being able to do that. Shame.

Evanna Lynch: It [Luna’s Quidditch commentary] was never filmed. It was in the script and I got so psyched about it, because it was done really well. I find sport incredibly boring, so I would like to see Luna’s take on it. I got invited to the Quidditch World Cup, to commentate, and sadly it conflicted with this. It’s going on in New York at this moment. But one day I will get there and I will commentate that match.

Alfie Enoch: It was actually my last day of shooting on the last film. I was up on the battlements with the Weasley Twins, and we were defending the castle from some of those spells. You know, you saw that fantastic scene where all the Death Eaters were sending in those spells and breaking down the wall, and then they go and they’re actually attacking the stone of the castle. That’s something. We’re up against a green screen, and I thought, this the first time I’ve actually got a wand in my hand [and can] let loose. I was having a brilliant time. I got so into it I actually fell off the podium, which was quite embarrassing. That was such a sort of fun finale. I was sorry that didn’t make it in.
