   Rowling to write more crime novels than Potter!!0 Comments

Robert Galbraith recently attended the Theakstons Old Peculiar Crime Writing Festival in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

During this Festival, Rowling/Galbraith stated to The Herald Scotland that she intends to write many more novels, due to there not being a single storyline to follow, as was with the Potter novels.

Accio Quote:
Speaking at the Theakstons Old Peculiar Crime Writing Festival in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, the multi-millionaire author said she hoped to write "more than" seven books about the detective.

She said: "It's pretty open ended. I really love writing, so I don't know that I've got an end point in mind.

"One of the things I love about this genre is unlike Harry Potter, where there was a through line, where there was an overarching story, a beginning and end, you are talking about discreet stories. So while a detective lives, you can keep giving him cases."

   Radcliffe's farewell to "Cripple"0 Comments

Theatre Mania recently conducted an interview with Daniel Radcliffe in which he bids The Cripple of Inishmaan a farewell.

Accio Quote:
9. Sarah Greene told us she can no longer eat eggs because she has to toss them onstage so often. Are you still able to eat eggs?

Oh, I'm fine, 'cause I'm not really near those things. I'm really glad about it. I don't know what I'd be able to do without eating eggs.

10. If you could talk Rupert Grint and Emma Watson into starring with you in a play or musical, which one would it be?

I'm thinking of things that have one girl and two guys, and the first one was Merrily We Roll Along. Let's go with that.

I’m delighted that Harry fans in Japan and around Asia can experience a physical incarnation that is so close to what I imagined when writing the books.”

   Tena talks "Game of Thrones"0 Comments

Natalia Tena recently spoke to Vulture to promote her upcoming movie 10,000KM.

During the interview Tena spoke about long-distance relationships and her involvement with Game of Thrones.

Accio Quote:
So, your character in 10,000 KM moves to L.A. and tries to keep up a long-distance relationship with her boyfriend, who lives in Spain. They’re having a hard time connecting.

And she's lonely in L.A. She and I are very different women. When I go somewhere, I want to get balls-deep in it. I immerse myself entirely. I won't feel lonely. I think it's sadder being the person left behind than the person going. Long distance, it's the all-time question, isn't it? Can love work long-distance? Especially when we've got all these means to communicate? But it doesn't substitute smelling or touching someone. And it almost makes it worse, because it's like torture, because they're not quite there. That's why for me and my boyfriend, I don't usually ring him or speak to him while I'm away. For me, the online thing, I'd rather just write him a letter, and then when I see him, tell him everything. So when I'm in Madrid [shooting the new BBC show Refugees>, I'm going to see him on the weekends. But I'm not going to attempt to chat with him during the week at all. It's just pointless. I think it makes you miss them more.

   Wanamaker discusses invisibility cloaks0 Comments

In an interview with The Guardian Zoe Wanamaker details how technology baffles her, however she would like an invisibility cloak like her witch counter-part in the Harry Potter movies.

Accio Quote:
What's the most technologically advanced project you've worked on?

Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone. I played a Hogwarts teacher called Rolanda Hooch. We did the Quidditch sequences with me sitting on a bicycle seat with a broomstick on the front, and this machine making it go up and down. It was programmed to do certain moves but the computer broke down, so we'd get off and go to have lunch. Then we'd get back on again until the computer broke again. Repeat this process a few more times and that was my day of flying through the air. But that was the first Harry Potter film. I'm sure by the last one, flying scenes were done in a much smoother way.

   Lynch: Life after Potter0 Comments

The Independent recently conducted an interview with Evanna Lynch about her life post-Harry Potter.

She talks about being a fan of YOGA and giving private lessons.

Accio Quote:
"The funny thing is that I've been told that to make it as a yoga teacher in Los Angeles is harder than making it in Hollywood," she laughs.

For now, she gives private sessions, and the occasional public class, where she mercifully doesn't get recognised for her most famous alter-ego.

Lynch also details the cut-throat nature of the film industry.

Accio Quote:
"I know well not to call home when I've had a bad audition, because my parents are like, 'ahhh, just come home'," says Lynch. "I think my family were given a false idea of the industry when I got the 'Harry Potter' role. I think they expected it to happen again and again, but I've had to explain that lightning doesn't necessarily strike twice."

   Temime reveals all about Potter costumes0 Comments

In a recent interview with Ideas Tap, Harry Potter costume designer, Jany Temime, states why training matters and how she develops costume ideas.

Accio Quote:
JK Rowling has just published a short story in which Harry Potter is in his 30s. How would you dress him as an adult?

I don’t know. I think he would still be an urban boy.

Not sharp-suited like Bond, then?

Not at all. Harry is always a boy. Actually we did a scene in the end of Harry Potter where we projected into the future. I think his clothes would be tasteful but relaxed and bohemian. Good taste but not obsessed by fashion.

   Video: Radcliffe reacts to new Potter story0 Comments

In an update to my previous newspost, Daniel Radcliffe mentioned to The Hollywood Reporter that he is inclined to say 'no' to future Potter projects.

Accio Quote:
My inclination is to say ‘no’ because I don’t think it’s even a hypothetical at the moment. [...> What she’s written — and I haven’t read yet but I will — I understand it’s a very short piece. And he’s 12 years older than I am now.

Does this mean that he would not say 'yes' to a short film based on the new story? Who knows!
