Tri-Wizard Champions Talk Goblet of Fire

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Cedric Diggory is a new addition to the Potter films [not books]
I have recently finished the latest installment to the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and do admit to being a little bummed. The only thing left of Potter within the next year or two is the upcoming film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. This installment to the series covers the Tri-Wizard Tournament that takes place at Hogwarts and allows the school to invite other magical schools over for a year-long visit [yes, there are other magic schools].

After the other two schools arrive, totaling three, each school is allowed to select one champion through the process known as the goblet of fire. The champions selected are Viktor Krum [famous Seeker], Fleur Delacour [young, permissive, hottie], and Cedric Diggory from Hufflepuff. However, there is only one problem and it comes with the name of Harry Potter. For unknown reasons, the goblet of fire decided to select a fourth champion for that year's Tri-Wizard Tournament, with Harry being competitor of choice.

Even though the films never mention Cedric Diggory until this upcoming film, he is mentioned in previous Potter books. All three of the new character additions is something that should be refreshing and exciting for Goblet of Fire. But don't take it from me, let's hear them talk about it.

Champions Talk Goblet of Fire

Comingsoon was able to sit down with Robert Pattinson [Cedric], Clémence Poéy [Fleur] and Stanislav Ianevski [Viktor] and discuss their roles in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. One thing that cracks me up about every addition to the Potter cast is that it seems that none of the cast members had read Harry Potter until being picked up for the films. The latest book sold millions opening day and hardly any of the cast had any experience with the books before joining on. In the words of Morpheus, 'It would seem that fate has a sense of irony.'

Check out a snippet of the interviews from ComingSoon:

CS!: How does it feel to be the new blood in such a popular series of movies?

Robert Pattinson: Well, I thought it would be more daunting then it has turned out to be. I think I've kind of integrated pretty easily, but everyone's pretty friendly, so it's not particularly difficult to do that. I think being a "new blood" hasn't really affected me that much.

Stanislav Ianevski: I feel as if what I've been doing hasn't really changed me, as well. I feel as if I'm a part of a new family now. I've settled down really well, I think.

CS!: Were you fans of the movies before doing this or had you not paid attention?

Stan: Well, me, personally, not directly, but as soon as I got the part, I got the past books and the films.

Robert: That's more or less the same as me. I hadn't read any of them until I heard about the audition and then I read it about a week before the audition. I was pretty unitiated.

I cannot believe that Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire will be Stanislav Ianevski's first film. This guy has to be one of the luckiest people in entertainment; probably a step behind Brandon Routh who got picked up as Superman for the upcoming film Superman Returns.
