Young, pretty Harry Potter Brits dating. I’m all over it. The latest: Bonnie Wright who plays Ginny and Jamie Campbell Bower who will be Gellert Grindelwald were spotted this past weekend leaving the EA British Academy Children’s Awards together. Very cute. Grindelwald of course was at one time Dumbledore’s best friend before he became his bitter enemy. Full Story

An afternoon with the Potter kids

Let’s start with Bonnie Wright. She’s tiny. Was wearing flats, as was I, and we’re the same height, only she’s thinner, though not unhealthy. Very still, small movements, extremely articulate, quite reserved. Funnily enough, it’s the Weasleys with the low energy, and Harry and Hermione who are much more animated. Full Story

Am told that tickets are already sold out in many cities for showings on the first 3 days… Do you have yours? I saw it on Thursday at a press screening before the junket. So f-cking cute. And visually spectacular. And fun. And fastpaced. And if you don’t want the spoilers, STOP READING NOW. Full Story

Meet Draco Malfoy

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 8, 2009 07:01:00 July 8, 2009 07:01:00

As you know, Tom Felton’s Draco Malfoy has a very, very significant role to play in HP6 and as such is joining Daniel Radcliffe and the others on the first tier of publicity. Can’t decide if I find him attractive. Do you? It’s the shiny suit throwing me off. Don’t like. But he probably won’t be wearing it today. Full Story

A kiss from Professor McGonagall

Cute moment on the carpet at Harry Potter last night as Rupert Grint was working the cameras, a playful Maggie Smith came from behind him and kissed him the cheek. I LOVE HER. If for no other reason (although there are many reasons) than for that classic moment in Gosford Park, you remember? There is nothing more cutting, more demoralising, more soul-crushing than being talked down to by someone with an English accent. Full Story

Hermione…or Ginny?

Jacek was looking at these photos of Emma Watson last night and said it felt a little wrong. She is SO beautiful but not a girl, not yet a woman… Out of the Harry Potter cast, it’s always Emma who takes the style stage. Emma is the lead girl. And she’s pretty and stylish and Karl Lagerfeld loves her and she’s owned the spotlight by herself…until now? At the junkets and photo calls, Bonnie Wright has been subdued, and low key. Full Story

Jo so stylish!

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 6, 2009 20:04:30 July 6, 2009 20:04:30

Out for dinner tonight in London, in town for the big premiere tomorrow. What premiere? Of course you know what premiere. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, the film adaptation of the 6th book in her brilliant 7 book series. There’s no doubt Jo will be there tomorrow night. But tonight a warm-up with her husband, in trendy heels and a little black dress, she is sexy and styling and who’s more badass than JK Rowling? No equal. Full Story

Waiting, waiting, waiting…

Almost there. Not quite but almost… Tomorrow is the UK premiere of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Today, the photo call. Members of the cast were at Claridge’s this morning to kick off a media storm in advance of the carpet and more promotion later on the in the week. As usual, of course, Emma Watson is flawless. Full Story

Laura loved Harry 6

My friend and producer Laura went to the media screening for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince yesterday in Toronto and many of you wrote in the afternoon wondering about her reaction. The verdict: it’s good. It’s very, very good. I don’t mind spoilers so she gave me most of the details but I won’t ruin it for you here. Full Story
