   Boyle discusses Scorpius Malfoy0 Comments

In a new interview with The Times, Anthony Boyle (Scorpius Malfoy) discusses how he immersed himself in the role for the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child theatre show.


  Accio Quote:
He’s the twitchy, ice-blond offspring of nasty Draco Malfoy, Harry Potter’s arch enemy at Hogwarts. And for Anthony Boyle, the actor playing Scorpius Malfoy on stage at the Palace Theatre in London, he represents the biggest break the 22-year-old newcomer could have imagined.

Even Muggles know by now that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is a monster hit. Tickets are as difficult to find as a dose of Polyjuice Potion; the reception has been rapturous from critics and eager Potterheads, with fans making a pilgrimage to the show from across the globe. “Keep the Secrets”, elated audiences are implored...

   Trailer: Felton in "A United Kingdom"0 Comments

A trailer for Tom Felton's upcoming A United Kingdom has been released.



The movie is about:


  Accio Quote:
London, 1947. Jazz lovers Seretse Khama (Oyelowo, also at the Festival in Queen of Katwe) and Ruth Williams (Pike) meet at a Missionary Society dance. The evening is electric, perhaps in part because both know their attraction is fraught. She’s an accomplished office worker, and white. He is a charming law student, and black. What he can’t tell her at first is that he’s also a prince, first in line to the throne of Bechuanaland (today’s Botswana). But despite the obstacles, it’s love.


Tom Felton plays the character of Rufus Lancaster.

The movie is released on November 25th in the U.K. and is seeking U.S. distribution.

In a new interview with The Telegraph, Sir Kenneth Branagh discusses a whole-host of topics, including Brexit, acting, the last time he cried and his biggest "film flop."


  Accio Quote:
Post the Brexit vote, Branagh believes, it also has a distinctly contemporary resonance. ‘It’s impossible not to feel that we’re living through another moment of historical import politically. And it will be interesting to see how that plays with the audience.’

   Felton discusses "The Flash"0 Comments

In a new interview with Showbiz Junkies, Tom Felton discusses his upcoming role as CSI Julian Dorn in The Flash.


  Accio Quote:
What can you tell us about joining The Flash?

Tom Felton: “A few weeks ago I was (asked) if I wanted to join the cast, really. I marathoned my way through about 35 episodes, fell in love with the show, just felt like something very different, something very new, something completely that I didn’t expect it to be type of show. It has a wonderful feel good factor, kind of comfort level. I said a metaphor last night and it’s a terrible one so excuse me. ‘It’s like the comfort of watching Friends but with the excitement of watching Spider-Man or Batman. It was very surreal.

   Rowling to release THREE new books!0 Comments

It has been announced that J. K. Rowling and Pottermore will be releasing THREE new Harry Potter-inspired e-books next month!

The three e-books under the title of Short Stories from Hogwarts will explore various topics and are priced at £1.99 each.


Short Stories from Hogwarts of Heroism, Hardship and Dangerous Hobbies

  Accio Quote:
‘Minerva was the Roman goddess of warriors and wisdom. William McGonagall is celebrated as the worst poet in British history. There was something irresistible to me about his name, and the idea that such a brilliant woman might be a distant relative of the buffoonish McGonagall.’ – J.K. Rowling

Pottermore Presents is a collection of J.K. Rowling’s writing: short reads originally featured on pottermore.com with some exclusive new additions. These eBooks, with writing curated by Pottermore, will take you beyond the Harry Potter stories as J.K. Rowling reveals her inspiration, intricate details of characters’ lives and surprises from the wizarding world.

These stories of heroism, hardship and dangerous hobbies profile two of the Harry Potter stories’ most courageous and iconic characters: Minerva McGonagall and Remus Lupin. J.K. Rowling also gives us a peek behind the closed curtains of Sybill Trelawney’s life, and you’ll encounter the reckless, magical-beast-loving Silvanus Kettleburn along the way.



Short Stories from Hogwarts of Power, Politics and Pesky Poltergeists

  Accio Quote:
‘No Muggle Prime Minister has ever set foot in the Ministry of Magic, for reasons most succinctly summed up by ex-Minister Dugald McPhail (term of office 1858-1865): “their puir wee braines couldnae cope wi’ it.”’ – J.K. Rowling

Pottermore Presents is a collection of J.K. Rowling’s writing: short reads originally featured on pottermore.com with some exclusive new additions. These eBooks, with writing curated by Pottermore, will take you beyond the Harry Potter stories as J.K. Rowling reveals her inspiration, intricate details of characters’ lives and surprises from the wizarding world.

These stories of power, politics and pesky poltergeists give you a glimpse into the darker side of the wizarding world, revealing the ruthless roots of Professor Umbridge, the lowdown on the Ministers for Magic and the history of the wizarding prison Azkaban. You will also delve deeper into Horace Slughorn’s early years as Potions master at Hogwarts - and his acquaintance with one Tom Marvolo Riddle.



Hogwarts: An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide

  Accio Quote:
‘The Ministry of Magic felt strongly, however, that to construct an additional wizarding station in the middle of London would stretch even the Muggles’ notorious determination not to notice magic when it was exploding in front of their faces.’ – J.K. Rowling

Pottermore Presents is a collection of J.K. Rowling’s writing: short reads originally featured on pottermore.com. These eBooks, with writing curated by Pottermore, will take you beyond the Harry Potter stories as J.K. Rowling reveals her inspiration, intricate details of characters’ lives and surprises from the wizarding world.

Hogwarts An Incomplete and Unreliable Guide takes you on a journey to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. You’ll venture into the Hogwarts grounds, become better acquainted with its more permanent residents, learn more about lessons and discover secrets of the castle . . . all at the turn of a page.


You can purchase them via Amazon by clicking here, here and here.

You can also order them from the Pottermore shop.

The three books will be released on September 6, 2016.
