Bill Nighy joins cast for Deathly Hallows
The Love Actually star will appear in Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows alongside a host of UK acting talent including Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, Timothy Spall and Rhys Ifans.
In a recent interview, Nighy told the Independent newspaper: "I don't think I'm allowed to say it but I'm going to be in the next Harry Potter film.
"I won't say which character, but he's a goodie. I just got the gig."
Nighy had been teasing the media about his rumoured appearance in the final instalment of the series, which will be split into two parts, since he called himself "the only British actor who hasn't been in Harry Potter".
He has recently completed filming on Wild Target with Emily Blunt and Harry Potter's own Rupert Grint.
