Toby JonesI've used this space before to write about how, out of all the characters in "Harry Potter" who kick the bucket, it was the death of Dobby the House Elf that hit me the hardest.

"What!" Toby Jones exclaimed in mock seriousness when MTV recently asked him about the character, who he voices. "He DIES?!?"

Ok, very funny Mr. Jones. But, seriously, not to get all Dr. Phil on you here, but how does that make you feel?

"I can only take a certain amount of credit for inhabiting Dobby, because clearly these brilliant people at Industrial Light and Magic have created Dobby and I just voiced the character," he humbly confessed. "[But] am always amazed and flattered at how much that character has endured even though he hasn't been in any films for a while. Every time a book comes out people phone me, and write to me from around the world saying 'He's in! He is in!'"

Of course, he HASN'T been in the movies, not since "Chamber of Secrets" anyway. But there may be no way around including him in "Deathly Hallows," thinks Jones, not now that he has what Jones calls a "tragic hero death [amid] a string of tragic deaths."

So if they came calling?

"I think it certainly would be fun to do his death," Jones said, a wry smile across his face. "It would be fun."

Dobby is pivotal to the plot in the book. They really can't leave out his death. Although, given how much I cried when he died in the book, I'll probably have to take 2 boxes of tissues to the movie!

I wont kill u Tukz for it coz I know it was essential..Many of the deaths were indeed Essential...Dobby's death was especially so coz as u said Griphhok's reaction at it but most importantly...it was when Harry dug Dobby's grave that he made the choice to follow the winding dangerous path set for him by Albus Dumbledore..Just to TRUST this man...bcoz he knew those bright blue reassurring eyes which had sent Dobby..he made a decisive choice at that moment...indded Dobby's death was essential but the fact that it was essential doesnt make it in any way less painful na?
