Catching up a little here. Just to inform you that The Fast Show's Mark Williams has been cast in Harry Potter & The Chamber Of Secrets as Mr. Weasley (Ron's father) along with Jason Issacs (Black Hawk Down) as Lucius Malfoy and Miriam Margolyes (Cats and Dogs) as professor Sprout.

More news from the Gloucester Cathedral set of Harry Potter & The Chamber of Secrets. It seems that the shoot is likely to go on for about another week or so at the cities 900 year old cathedral. Security is still tight as The Citizen reports, "Whenever a fan gets close enough to take a picture of Daniel, their view is blocked by the hands of security staff".

The Harry Potter & The Chamber Of Secrets production rolled into the city of Gloucester, England this week to film in it's famous Cathedral. The original movie shot here back in October of 2000. The Cathedral's cloisters double up for Moaning Myrtle's bathroom and the Hogwarts corridor scenes. Empire Online reports, "Along with dozens of uniform-clad Hogwarts extras, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Kenneth Branagh, Richard Harris and Dame Maggie Smith have all been seen wandering the cathedral's halls and, as word has spread, children for miles around have been granted the day off school to come along and see if they can catch a glimpse of the stars". Now, I had a look around the Cathedral the last time the Harry Potter circus rolled into town and security is so tight that i'd be surprised if anyone would see anything. In fact our local newspaper The Citizen posted a report that security guards are more visible that the stars! If you want to check out pics of the various extras on set, check out The Citizen's site. But still, it's excitng to think that one of the most popular movie franchises ever is being filmed right on your doorstep!


The UK newspaper 'The Sun' printed a photo of Kenneth Branagh in the role of professor Gilderoy Lockhart, hired to teach Defence Against The Dark Arts at Harry's school Hogwarts.
