HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE First Trailer Pictures
At the top we can see a young Voldemort, played by Ralph Fiennes’ (who plays the older version of Voldermort) real-life nephew, Hero Fiennes-Tiffin. I guess we all know how he got the part…
And director David Yates can deny it as much as he wants:
“The fact that he’s related to Ralph wasn’t the primary reason for choosing him. It was an advantage that he looked very similar to Ralph. Of course that was useful. But primarily I went for Hero because of this wonderful haunted quality that seemed to bring Tom Riddle alive on-screen for us.”
I’m sure we can all agree that it was a big factor in choosing him. Let’s be honest here, even if my nephew had a better “haunted quality that seemed to bring Tom Riddle alive on-screen” he still wouldn’t have been picked. Ok, I’ll give Hero Fiennes-Tiffin credit, he does look freakin’ awesome in the picture, even I wouldn’t give the part to my nephew.
Another great news is the fact that the actual trailer for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be released sometimes today. Let me take a breath here… Ok I’m good… and the trailer will also appear before The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor in theaters this Friday.
The movie comes out on November 21, 2008 and according to David Yates, film editing is complete. So excited!
