My little girl is now complaining about living far away from London. She said she would love to play this character. And she is 9 years-old. But we can't go there now... If it were a month ago. :(

This is so exciting!

This is all so exciting. I guess the little girl they are searching for is British, perhaps she could be like a new era Hermione! It's all really exciting also we have our filming dates August-January a whopping shoot just like the other movies. :)
