Will Percy be in Goblet Of Fire?

Chris Rankin
The actor who plays Percy Weasley in the Potter films has been speaking out about rumours that his character will not appear in Goblet Of Fire.

Chris Rankin told the BBC that, at the moment, it seems that the movie-makers have decided to leave Percy "in the dressing room" for the fourth film.

"They don't finish filming until next March, so anything could happen.

"But from what I'm gathering, and that I haven't seen a script, Percy won't be around for GOF," said Chris.

A spokesman for Potter publicity said: "With the length of the books, it's impossible to include all of the elements and characters within the length of the film.

"Elements that the film-makers feel aren't vital to moving the story forward are the ones that won't necessarily be included.

"But that doesn't mean to say that these much-loved characters, like Percy, won't be seen again in future films."
