“Boardwalk Empire” Actress Confirms Role for “Deathly Hallows – Part 2”

HollywoodNews.com: A new bit of casting news has been revealed for the final installment in the Harry Potter franchise, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – part 2, and it gives us a glimpse into one of the more mysterious characters mentioned in the books written by author J.K. Rowling.

In an recent interview with Vanity Fair, it was revealed that Boardwalk Empire‘s Kelly MacDonald has “a small part as the Ravenclaw house ghost in the final Harry Potter film”. It can only be assumed that this is the part of Helena Ravenclaw, whose identity was a mystery to Harry Potter fans up until the near end of the seventh book. Helena’s background is a sad and twisted story, which plays a somewhat important role in Harry’s understanding of Voldemort and the search for the remaining Horcruxes. MacDonald can currently be seen in the HBO hit series, Boardwalk Empire, playing the character of Margaret Schroeder.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – part 2 will be in theaters July 15, 2011.
