‘Harry Potter’ costume designer on dressing Slughorn ‘Harry Potter’ costume designer on dressing Slughorn

slughornHarry Potter costume designer Jany Temime discusses the challenges involved in dressing Professor Slughorn in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in a new interview with the LA Times.

“Everything we did for his costumes was very rich, but also very used, because he’s not a rich man anymore. He hasn’t worked for a long time. He is a bit of a has-been. But his clothes, even if they were from 20 years ago, were once upon a time, very rich and very glamorous. So we went for ‘Old Glamour’ when designing…Very pompous, very extreme, very glorious.”

Thanks to Scar Potter, we now have a new and very interesting photo of Daniel Radcliffe and Jim Broadbent, where Daniel, as Harry Potter, is playing the piano… possibly a talent he perfected during his time on Broadway?

broadbentJim Broadbent, Horace Slughorn in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, describes his character as “a good man, a decent man, but a weak man” in a new interview with the Los Angeles Times.

“It’s wonderful to be part of this now, to come in at this stage, because they’ve got it running so smoothly now, it’s amazing to see,” said the 59-year-old Broadbent, whose screen career dates to 1978.”

Broadbent, a fan of the books, praises the adaptations from page to screen.

“I saw the first film when it came out, and it was so brilliantly conceived,” Broadbent said. “You read the book and then you see the film and every moment you think, ‘That is exactly how I imagined it.'”

Half-Blood Prince‘s director David Yates is also a fan of the actor, noting that “he works exceptionally hard, and he makes everything look exceedingly easy”.
