The Prisoner's Jamie Campbell Bower on New Moon, Harry Potter, and Gay PDAs

You've signed onto several book-to-film adaptations. Are you ever curious about how the fandoms are reacting to your casting?

I try to leave that out, just because for as many people that like you, there's always going to be the same amount of people who hate you. Because we do what we do, we're subject to our lives being put on display, almost. More and more people will comment on what they think of you. I don't mind if people are saying nasty things about me behind my back -- I just don't want to know about them.

Have you already shot the pilot to Game of Thrones for HBO?

Yeah, just finished.

And you're playing Waymar Royce. What can you tell me about him?

Ohhhh. Not very much.

But it already exists as a series of books! You wouldn't be spoiling anything.

Well, it exists in pilot form for the television company. [Laughs] I don't want to spill the beans, because they could be like [sing-songy voice], "Uh-uh. You said something bad, you can't do it." And I'd be fired!

Was it a good experience, at least?

It was a great experience. Very short shoot, but they threw a lot of money at it. Hopefully it's going to be really good, and hopefully it'll be greenlit and we'll go ahead with it. It was great fun and a very strong, rich cast.

Ar you happy that you snuck in under the wire to be a part of the Harry Potter series at its end?

Yeah, I'm incredibly happy. I went up for a role a few years ago. Didn't get it. [Director] David Yates called me up...well, I shouldn't say, "called me up." His assistant called my agent, who then called me. [Laughs] And they offered it to me and I was more than happy to do it.

Which role had you gone up for before?

I went up for the young Voldemort. Was that the second film or the sixth? Oh, I don't know. It was a few years ago.

And you also have London Boulevard coming up, right?

Right, written and directed by Bill Monahan, who wrote the screenplay for The Departed. It's his directorial debut, and I play a character named White Boy who's a drugged-up loser. He has dreadlocks and sounds like a Jamaican. I can tell you that it was really cool.

A good look for you, I'm sure.

It was.

And have they actually signed you for a fourth Twilight film? There's talk that they may split Breaking Dawn into two movies.

Um...yeah, it's a good bet that yes, I'll come back. I think that'll be the case, unless they decide to not let me do it. That would be their call, but right now, I'd love to be able to do it.

    It was definitely the 6th Harry Potter film and he should know that considering he would've been like 12 years old when the 2nd Harry Potter film came out 9 years ago. I think a smart person could tell the difference between 2 years ago and 9 years ago. But whatever.

  • me too says:

    To the commenter above: maybe he doesn't care about Harry Potter enough to remember when the movies came out. Many people don't.

  • VoV says:

    If he was 10-12 years old when the first two films came out ... he'd know about them, even if he wasn't a fan. That was their target audience and the first two films were WILDLY popular despite the fact that the first two films were also the WORST.

  • Me says:

    I respectfully disagree. I thought the first two films were awesome. They have gotten better with time, but considering they started the film series and they came out 10 years ago...they're still visually stunning. The only reason people dislike them is because they're too cheerful compared to the later films. And I agree with "VOV"...even if he isn't a Potter film, which a lot of people regretfully are not, he should still be able to tell the difference between a 2 year gap and a 9 year gap.

  • Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and
    tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.

    My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share
    it with someone!

    I leave a response each time I like a post on a site or I have something to add
    to the conversation. It's triggered by the sincerness displayed in the article I read.
    And on this post The Prisoner?s Jamie Campbell Bower on New Moon,
    Harry Potter, and Gay PDAs - Movieline. I was moved enough to drop a thought :
    ) I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you usually do not mind.

    Is it just me or does it give the impression like
    a few of the remarks appear like coming from brain dead individuals?
    😛 And, if you are writing at other social sites, I'd
    like to follow you. Could you make a list all of all your public pages
    like your twitter feed, Facebook page or
    linkedin profile?

  • Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. Nevertheless just
    imagine if you added some great images or videos to give your posts more, "pop"!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this website could definitely be one of the best in its field.
    Wonderful blog!
