The 59-year-old, who once joked he was the "only British actor who hasn't been in Harry Potter", told reporters of his new role at a book festival launch.

"I am in the next Harry Potter," he told reporters.

"I will be Rufus Scrimgeour, who is the Minister of Magic and he is a very very important man."
