Casting of Narcissa Malfoy announced

Post by Hilary the Touched » Fri Nov 09, 2007 3:08 pm

According to numerous sources, British actress Helen McRory is signed to play Narcissa Malfoy. Apparently she had originally been cast to play Bellatrix LeStrange, but was unable to perform that role because of her pregnancy.

I've no opinion on this other than to say I'm glad the part's not going to Naomi Watts. For no good reason.

but thanks to parvatimp24 for calling it to my attention!

Pull out another platinum-blonde wig!!! Oh, she plays evil well. My first introduction to Helen McCrory was in The Count of Monte Cristo as the social-climbing Mme. Villefort. She was also in The Jury with Gerry Butler.

Gosh. HP-HBP is a year away now.

Oh I am glad to read here that she plays evil well. As they didn't put her in a blonde wig. It's two toned and well.....she just doesn't fit the way I see Narcissa and I have been a little concerned about how they were going to play her.

As the wig on her makes me think of Cruella de Vil. :shock:

I completely hate Narcissa's look. It really sucks. I don't know what they are playing at. Totally doesn't match the book.

Have they started filming yet? IMDB still shows Jason as rumored.

I heard (or read) they were going to start filming in February... Can't remember where or when. IMDb isn't 100% reliable all the time. Last time I checked they had'n even listed Ralph Fiennes for the last two films.

I won't judge before I see it on screen, but the images released on Narcissa looks... well, not exactly as I pictured her. I think she deserves a chance though. (and THEN I'll judge. haha!)

I know that Emma Watson started filming this past week, so the principles have started.


And I didn't mean I wouldn't give her a chance. :-(

Believe me Ariza, I reacted the same way.
The look is just not right, but she might give a kick-ass performance, so I won't say anything until I see the movie.

Thanks Hilary.
Hmmmm, I assumed that her hair would be all white blonde.
I absolutely love her coat, but it looks like something out the forties not HP.
I like Helen (and her hubby, Damian Lewis. )
