Fleur Delacour doesn’t know her own fate — at least, Clémence Poésy, the actress who played her in “Goblet of Fire,” hasn’t read beyond that book yet. Poesy told MTV News that she’s not back in what she calls “Harry Potter world” just yet and won’t be appearing in “Half-Blood Prince” — which probably means that the subplot of her character’s engagement to Bill Weasley has been cut out or is only a mention, no actual scenes.
Still, there’s hope for Phlegm — we mean, Fleur — in “Hallows,” since the couple’s wedding is a major action sequence when it’s disrupted by Death Eaters, and the newlywed’s home at Shell Cottage becomes a place of refuge — but don’t tell her that.
“Somebody already told me the end of ‘Order of the Phoenix,’ and I was like, ‘You’re ruining everything!’” Poésy laughed, since she plans to read the remaining books on her next vacation “back to back.” Still, she can’t resist asking for one one spoiler: “Has Harry done some bad things?”
Maybe that’s the influence of her latest film “In Bruges” speaking. Reunited with several of her Potter castmates, including Brendan Gleeson, Mad-Eye Moody in Potter, now as a hitman named Ken, and Ralph Fiennes, who as Voldemort is always trying to kill Harry, now playing a hitman boss named …Harry. “Isn’t that funny?” exclaimed Poésy. “We didn’t tease [Ralph] about it, but maybe we will now. I had met Brendan before, and he was really sweet. He liked scaring kids with his costume, showing it to all the extras, who were like, ‘How do you do that with your eye?’”
Not that Poésy isn’t above scaring the kids as well. “It would be nice of you not to write that,” she teased. “The kids think I have powers, so I can say, ‘Be careful, otherwise I can turn you into a frog! I’ve learned.’ So don’t tell anyone I don’t have witchcraft powers.”
In “In Bruges,” Poésy has powers of a different sort - she’s able to magnetically attract Colin Farrell, who plays yet another hitman, when he crashes a film set she’s on. Her character Chloe’s not an actress though. “She tells him she sells drugs to film crews, and he doesn’t believe her,” Poesy said. “He says, ‘I murder people for money,’ she says, ‘I sell drugs,’ and nobody believes the other. I think she just likes him. He seems innocent, childish, talking about midgets, and his eyes, they’re so big and completely innocent for a hitman who’s just committed a huge murder.”
And compared to her character’s ex-boyfriend, with whom Chloe scams tourists, Farrell’s Ray seems “kind of nice.” Can she say the same thing for Colin? “I know he kills people for money, but he never tells anyone,” she joked. “It would be very presumptious of me to tell you what else Colin is like.”
Despite their characters crimes, they remain pretty likeable, well, save for Fiennes’ Harry. “They’re doing bad things with a good heart,” Poésy said.
“It’s never black or white. It’s all greys. If we were all perfect, it wouldn’t be as beautiful. Even in simple fairy tales, you’ve got some awful things.”
It’s a running joke in “In Bruges” that Harry set Ken and Ray there because the town is like a “f–king fairy tale.” But Poésy thinks perhaps her character was the only one who got a happy ending. And as for her Potter world counterpart, she’s hoping for a happy ending there as well. “They get married, have lots of kids, never have a fight, and never divorce,” she guesses. We don’t want to spoil it for her, but let’s just say Fleur makes it to the epilogue. “It’d be a pleasure,” Poésy said, “to go back and pop in before it all finishes.”

User comment: By: SimonObviously that Terrible!! It would let the Story a bit down without the wedding, cos it is going to be extraordinary if they include the wedding part. Therefore, Hope they'll adapt their mind, let the wedding part NOT to be cut.

User comment: By: MjjWell, when I think of it, it is sad that the producers are hesistant to make the movies near three hours, but they had to cut something out of this movie, right? I mean, if this Bill/Fleur thing was important for the movie plot, then JKR would have not let the script writer to cut the scenes out. It is a known fact that the film producers are bad at doing the fan service thing, then why expect different outcome on this film, when we have (most likely) the DH split into two movies. I really hope the WB does not find anyone talented enough to cram the book into one movie without hurting the plot.
User comment: By: TaylahBill Nor Charlie will be in the films. How the hell will they set up the Fleur/Bill marriage scene in the DH Movie? Pft. mugglecast.com

User comment: By: ChrisHow can they not put her in the movie... Why do they keep pushing the story line further and further from the books... I hate them right now! What, are they just going to pop Ron's brothers and the marriage randomly in the last movie? This is some of the most retarded news I've heard yet about HBP
