The Viktor Krum actor reveals a “love triangle plot” between he, Hermione and Ron was cut from the ‘Deathly Hallows’ films

Stanislav Ianevski, the Bulgarian actor who played Quidditch superstar and Durmstrang student Viktor Krum in both Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly about his roles in the ‘Potter’ films.

Interestingly, Ianevski spoke of a “love triangle plot”, conceived by director David Yates, and not present in the Deathly Hallows book.

Says the actor, “[the director] invented a new story that wasn’t in the books, a love triangle between Viktor Krum, Hermione, and Ron … but that was cut out of the film because it obviously didn’t fit with all the horrible things that happen in the last book.”

Ianevski goes on to talk about a dance scene at the wedding: “We did a new dance scene, I sort of stole [Hermione] from Ron. … She remembered our old times, Viktor was acting like a gentleman again, happy to see her, she was happy to see him. Ron was sitting on the side, was jealous, and then Viktor took her to the dance floor.”

And how would the love triangle have ended? Victory for Bulgaria? The actor jokes, “Viktor would obviously win and then live happily on forever with Hermione”.

‘Deathly Hallows: Part 1’ takes in $24 million on opening night in America ‘Deathly Hallows: Part 1’ takes in $24 million on opening night in America

Variety is reporting that Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 has earned $24 million from opening night midnight screenings. The film screened in 3,700 locations across North America.

So how does that compare? In 2009, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince earned $22.2 million on opening night, while Order of the Phoenix earned $12 million in 2007 and Goblet of Fire earned $6 million in 2005.

The highest-grossing opening weekend belongs to the The Dark Knight, also from Warner Bros., which earned $158.4 million. Deathly Hallows: Part 1 is estimated to earn $132 million over the weekend, though “some predictions place it as high as $157 million”.

What did you think of Deathly Hallows: Part 1. Is it the best adaptation yet?

Thanks to Warner Bros. for exclusively sending us over this Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire character poster/banner, showing a not-so-keen Ron Weasley in his rather unattractive Yule Ball attire. Thanks again to WB! (Just for now, we’re asking other webmasters wishing to post the banner on their own website to link to the image directly, rather than re-uploading to your own sites. Thanks, guys!)
