We previously posted an interview with the stand-in who plays Bill Weasley in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, well thanks to The Burrow we now have an interview with Alex Crockford, the stand-in for Charlie Weasley.
Alex was lifted from call sheets early on in the process and is currently studying Law at Cambridge. He notes that this is his first acting job where his looks played a more important role rather than his experience, as well as the chances of him appearing in Goblet of Fire:
Minimal, I'm afraid. I got a letter from one of the director's assistants telling me that Charlie isn't featured in the current shooting script, but that he would let me know if he appears in a later draft or in Order of the Phoenix, although I don't think Charlie's actually in the book of OotP except possibly in another moving photograph (the one Percy walks out of.) So I suspect that my total screentime in the Harry Potter franchise at this rate will probably amount to roughly five seconds! There was talk that they might need Richard and myself again for the fourth film when I was on the set, but the book's so long that they had to cut something out, so I think it's extremely probable that my part will end up on the cutting room floor, if you excuse the expression! I don't know about Bill, though.
Thanks to Dawn for the tip.
