Ron Weasley Gets A Girlfriend

After five movies, you’d think they’d be out of parts to fill in the Harry Potter world. But casting for the next movie, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is underway. Reuters says the latest Potter addition is 20-year-old Jessie Cave, who has been cast as Ron Weasley’s new girlfriend Lavender Brown.

She was found in a pool of 7,000 hopefuls who auditioned for the part this summer. Though the auditioners were told no experience was necessary, Cave has some. She’s had minor parts in a couple of film an television projects, including the Helen Mirren film Inkheart. And as of yesterday, she’s also already got her own fansite. These Potter fans don’t waste any time.
