Harry Potter 6 Has Its Lavender Brown and Narcissa Malfoy

Harry Potter fans, we have our Lavender Brown. Twenty-year-old actress Jessie Cave beat out approximately 7,000 hopefuls for the role in the sixth Potter film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, scheduled for release in almost exactly one year, Nov. 21, 2008.

Cave's soon-to-be costars are delighted by the casting choice and hint that this sixth movie might be more funny ha-ha than the others:

[Rupert Grint] told CBBC's Newsround "I was involved with the Lavender Brown audition and the whole Lavender thing. Her name's Jessie and she is really cool and it's going to be really funny."
Co-star Emma Watson, who plays Weasley's friend Hermione Granger, added: "She seems really sweet and perfect for the role of Lavender. The casting is so good and I am looking forward to her scenes with Ron. I think it's going to be quite a comic film."

How cute are these kids? And I wonder how this Miss Jessie Cave feels about having to "snog" with her Weasley in the next installment!

In other Harry Potter casting news, Helen McCrory (The Queen, Becoming Jane) is set to play Narcissa Malfoy, Draco's mother and Bellatrix Lestrange's sister, who's played by Helena Bonham Carter. According to Reuters, the rest of the cast should be revealed soon, so stay tuned.

You're thinking about Angelina, RW Tara. Lavender Brown hasn't been portrayed in any of the films, yet.

Isn't Narcissa supposed to be really pale and blond and sort of wispy?

I always pictured her as a black girl, that's how she was shown in the earlier films. What happened ?!

This makes me so happy, I could scream. Except I'm in the office, and they already think I'm odd enough as it is. ;)

I wonder how Helena's current pregnancy is going to factor into the filming of the 6th book.

I've read all the books and I just hope that the rest of the movies will be half as good as the book.

Hmmm, I'm not convinced about Helen McCrory as Narcissa, but I'll reserve judgment until I see her in character. I just pictured someone much, much fairer. Cate Blanchett would have been more along the lines of what I pictured.

I haven't been thrilled with the casting of the movies, but that Jessie girl really does coincide with what I've always thought Lavender looks like! Score one for the casting team for once!

i think Naomi would have personified Narcissa perfectly, she's stunning however it's also good to give lesser known actors a tole in Potter, so many people have discovered great British actors through the series
