Jim Broadbent Talks ‘Potter’ In New Interview

July 4, 2009

UK (ChattahBox) – Jim Broadbent, the actor who has been cast as the character Professor Slughorn in the upcoming ‘Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince’, sat down with the UK new source The Telegraph in an interview.

In it he talks about having accepted the role after speaking to Imelda Staunton, who previously played the role of Dolores Umbridge in the last film, ‘Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix’.

He also discusses who his character is, and how we meet him in the beginning.

“When this story begins my character, Professor Slughorn, is retired from his teaching post but he is being pursued by The Death Eaters, so he is on the run. They are after him quite seriously, which means that he has to change location and change identity on a weekly basis, even if this means disguising himself as a chair, which, given his magic powers, is not a difficult thing to do. In fact, we first meet him as a chair.”

‘Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince’ is set for release this month.
