There's a new interview online this evening with the actress who plays Ginny Weasley in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. In this one particularly interesting quote, she discusses her first time reading the book:

DM: Do you remember how you felt when you read “The Half-Blood Prince”?

BW: I wasn’t fully expecting what happened. Ginny had grown up so much in the sixth book, and what happens between her and Harry? I just couldn’t have imagined that would happen. She started out so shy and young, and in this book she’s gotten so much more confident and noticed. She finds herself and it’s the first time you realize why she becomes the person who ends up with Harry.

Japanese Potter fansite Pottermania has posted photos from what appears to be a brand new trailer for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. BUT THERE IS NO VIDEO FOUND YET! In them, we see several new scenes: Harry and Slughorn enjoying a party, Harry and Dumbledore in the cave, Bellatrix attacking Hagrid's Hut, and Snape on the Astronomy tower with Harry.

What's more, Portkey.it is reporting that the last full trailer for Half-Blood Prince is expected to premiere in the US this Friday in front of Inkheart. Could this Japanese trailer be one we'll see?

Please note that this is just a rumor for now. I'll keep you updated!

A interview with Emma Watson, who plays Hermione Granger in the Potter films is online this evening which features the young actress answering fourteen questions from MovieFone.com.  Miss Watson, who is currently promoting her latest film, The Tale of Despereaux, spoke on a number of subjects during this interview involving her experience working on an animated film, her Harry Potter co-stars Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Robert Pattinson (Cedric Diggory), life, and about the relationship between the characters of Harry and Hermione.  When asked if she was disappointed a different relationship never developed between the two characters, Miss Watson notes that she felt is was "always obvious" that Harry and Hermione shared a pure friendship, saying that:

"No. I mean, to me it was always obvious that their relationship was purely friends. It always felt to me that she was very mothering towards him. It just wouldn't be right. And I think that Ron and Hermione are so perfect for each other that I'm not disappointed. [Laughs] It's meant to be."

This interview also features talk of Goblet of Fire costar Robert Pattinson (Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter 5), who she notes "must be over the moon" about the recent Twilight success, and Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, who all continue to keep in touch between the films.  Finally, discussion turns to The Tale of Despereaux and her experience making this film.  In regards to any surprises she experienced in making an animated film, she says:

"It's so rewarding to be a part of -- I mean, this may just apply to 'Despereaux,' I don't know -- but it's incredible to be a character that is being created from animation, and to be involved in that way, and then go sit down in a theater and see something that is almost a complete surprise to you, in the way that it looks and ... it was amazing going to see it. I was just so happy with it -- I'm proud of it. To do so little and to produce something so amazing is quite incredible. It's very liberating, in a way, not to be worrying about your appearance, and just focusing on the voice."

David Heyman, Harr Potter Producer, has given a new video interview where he comments on the two scripts of Deathly Hallows and breaking point for the upcoming film. Talking to Collider.com who let us know of their interview, which you can see here, David Heyman noted he had just been in London discussing the scripts for DH part one and part two with director David Yates and screenwriter Steve Kloves. When asked about the breaking or ending point of movie one, Heyman said it will not neccessarily be an action-packed moment but "an emotional and very truthful" point that fans will be happy with.
