  Fleur Delacour cast in Potter 4
Updated 14 June 2004, 15.51
Clemence Poesy in Gunpowder, Treason and Plot
In the latest Potter casting news, Newsround can exclusively reveal the part of Fleur Delacour will be played by French actress Clemence Poesy.

Clemence, 21, is currently in England rehearsing, with filming due to start in July, according to her agent.

She has appeared several times on stage and on TV. And she has also starred in two French feature films.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire will only be the second time she's acted in English instead of French.

Learning lines

The first was early in 2004 when she played Mary, Queen of Scots in the BBC drama Gunpowder, Treason and Plot.

During filming for the programme she said: "When I was learning lines, I had to be more careful about learning them in English. I had to make sure the pronunciation was correct as well as understanding the meaning."

Triwizard Tournament

Clemence, who was born in Paris, first got her interest in acting from her father, a theatre director and actor. And, after finishing school when she was 16, went on to get an agent and study acting.

For several months there have been rumours that Oscar-nominated actress Kate Winslet, who starred in Titanic, was to play the role. But many Potter fans will be pleased to learn that a French actress has been given the part.

Fleur Delacour is a pupil at French wizarding school Beauxbatons, and is one of the four champions competing in the Triwizard Tournament.

The other champions are Cedric Diggory, played by Robert Pattinson and Viktor Krum, who is reportedly being played by Bulgarian teenager Stanislav Yanevski.

And, of course Harry Potter being played by Dan Radcliffe. With the exception of Dan, none of the other casting has been officially confirmed by film-makers Warner Bros.
