Bill Nighy Talks About Working on Harry Potter

By Hanako M. Ricks

hollywoodnews.com: For the past few years, actor Bill Nighy (Underworld, Pirates of the Caribbean) would jokingly tell anyone who would listen how he was probably the only British actor on earth who hadn’t been called to appear in the Harry Potter films. Back in May 2007, he told the Washington Post that after hearing his old friend director David Yates (who he had worked with before) had been selected to helm Order of the Phoenix:

…his heart leapt. “I joked with him that maybe now I wouldn’t be the only actor in England who hadn’t been in ‘Harry Potter.’ ” And yet, he says, with a tone of mock heartbreak, “nobody called.”

Fast forward three years, and Nighy has just completed filming his role as Rufus Scrimgeour – the Minister of Magic with possible ulterior motives – in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Here, he speaks with the French site Premiere.fr while promoting his new film, Wild Target (which also stars Potter‘s Rupert Grint), and he talks about his experience working on the Potter set, the bond between the cast and crew, and his thoughts on the popular trio.

Fast forward
