Rupert Grint told CBBC's Newsround: "I was involved with the Lavendar Brown audition and the whole Lavendar thing. Her name's Jessie, and she is really cool, and it's going to be really funny." Man, what a tough job -- getting to go to a casting call and smooching who knows how many girls? I would hope they at least whittled the hopefuls down a little first. While it sounds exciting, smooching 7,000 girls has to give a guy chapped lips, at the very least. Emma Watson, everyone's favorite Hermione, also chimed in about the casting: "She seems really sweet and perfect for the role of Lavender. The casting is so good and I am looking foward to her scenes with Ron. I think it's going to be quite a comic film."
If you're itching to know who else is cast, you won't have to wait too much longer. Reuters says the full cast will be released soon.
