Since principal filming for Goblet of Fire has finished, many of the actors from the Potter films are busy with other projects. Here is a roundup of some of the things they are involved with.
Ralph Fiennes (Lord Voldemort in Goblet): The acclaimed actor returns to the theatre in England, starring in the production of Julius Caesar in the role of Marc Antony. Joining Ralph Fiennes onstage will be fellow Potter actress Fiona Shaw (Aunt Petunia) who will potray Portia. There are several newspaper articles about this play, including this play diary written by Fiona Shaw. The Guardian has this piece about Shakespeare that has some new photos of the actors in rehearsal for the play. Julius Caesar runs through May 14th at the Barbican Theatre in London, England.
Also, Mr. Fiennes is reportedly set to return Broadway here in the US in a performance of Faith Healer set to open in April, 2006.
