Young actors can easily lose touch with the real world. I like to think Jamie Waylett was in the wrong place at the wrong time
Even though I played the character of Lavender Brown in the Harry Potter movies, I can't claim to know my co-actor Jamie Waylett – who was sentenced to jail this week for taking part in last summer's riots – that well. Our paths did not cross during my time filming. I was nonetheless sad to hear of his sentencing, and I worry about what will happen to him now. I don't know how things were going for him post-Potter and pre-riots; the last time I checked, he did not have any new projects on his IMDb page, and due to his jail time he now won't be able to make the grand opening of the Harry Potter studios in Leavesden, Watford. Which is a shame.

Will He Float Your Boat?: After more than the usual back and forth, Russell Crowe is now set to take on the titular role in Darren Aronofsky’s Noah. Cameras should be rolling in the summer on what has been described as a non-traditional epic, in which the biblical character becomes “disillusioned with the way humans have treated their planet.” We're not sure Crowe's Noah will be as angry as Crowe was in Robin Hood (above), but this could be another case in which a familiar name is used to sell a movie, while junking the original story entirely. That could mean downplaying any sort of divine intervention.

After he was previously nicked by police for cannabis possession, we wouldn't have been surprised to find "Harry Potter" star Jamie Waylett arrested for having a cocktail in public, but a Molotov cocktail?
TMZ reports that the wayward Waylett, best known as Draco Malfoy's imposing lackey Vincent Crabbe in the first six "Potter" films, is on his way to Azkaban (a.k.a. jail) after being sentenced to two years in a British prison for some very Slytherin-like behavior during last year's London riots.

To add insult to injury, when Waylett was arrested on September 20th police found fifteen cannabis plants in his home.
