In a recent interview with Harry Potter Fan Zoneopens in new window, Jamie Waylett (Vincent Crabbe) from the Harry Potter movies gave fans some insight into current filming, the rumors dealing with Franz Ferdinand’s participation, the cast and which is his favorite movie.

HPFZ: How is Mike Newell's style compared to Alfonso Cuarón's and Chris Columbus'? (e.g., dark, more comical, dramatic)

Jamie: All three have been great to work with, and all have had a different style of directing. Chris was really fun to work with. He is a very nice man. He knew we were just kids and none of us were really experienced actors. He would tell us what he wanted and then guide us through each scene. He was great! Alfonso was mad [crazy], funny and sometimes silly, but, like Chris, encouraged the best out of us all. We would rehearse much more than with Chris and then film the scene. Mike knows exactly what he wants. Before we start shooting, he will explain what is going to happen, why it’s going to happen and when it’s going to happen! So, everybody makes it happen!

HPFZ: So Jamie, what's the deal? Could you enlighten us about the condition of Franz Ferdinand and their role, if any, in the new movie?

Jamie: There is a lot of news on websites [including the Harry Potter Fan Zone] about them being in "the Weird Sisters" [during the Yule Ball sequence]. However, all I can say is at the Yule ball, there is a band playing music while we dance, but it’s not them! I did hear they are doing two tracks for the soundtrack, but who knows?
