In a new interviewopens in new window with Harry Potter trio Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint they discuss the upcoming sixth movie, Half-Blood Prince, the actress playing Lavender Brown (Rupert gives her first name) and the success of the last film.

How is filming going on the Half-Blood Prince?
Daniel: It's going very well. So far we've been doing a lot of work with Slughorn, who is being played brilliantly by Jim Broadbent.

What's the actress who plays Lavender Brown like?
Rupert (Ron): I was involved with the Lavender Brown audition and the whole Lavender thing. Her name's Jessie and she is really cool and it's going to be really funny.
Emma: She seems really sweet and perfect for the role of Lavender. The casting is so good and I am looking forward to her scenes with Ron. I think it's going to be quite a comic film.

Also, in another interviewopens in new window director David Yates adds additional comments on JK's recent news on Dumbledore by saying:

He's a wonderful character, Dumbledore - graceful, wise, powerful, quirky, terrific sense of humour, loves knitting. There's a jumble of things in there and his sexuality is just another thing.

Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) added that a younger Dumbledore would make a good partner for Luna and that she told JK that:

If only Dumbledore was a 100 years younger they would be perfect, and I put that to JK Rowling. But as we know now, that's never going to happen.
