Bulgarian Teen Goes Ahead with Potter Role

Society | June 3, 2004, Thursday // 00:00

Bulgarian boy does take up the role of Viktor Krum in the fourth blockbuster Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

The teen Stanislav Yanevski, living and studying in London, has turned out to be the favorite choice of director Michael Newell.

After months of silence and controversial information around the nationality of the future-to-be Potter star, Warner Bros announced their decision to producer Victor Bozhinov late on Thursday.

Bozhinov was in charge of carrying out the Sofia casting at the end of February in search for the best Bulgarian teen boy to play the leading role of Potter's quidditich team head.

The Warner Bros' London-based office has remained silent over further details around Bulgarian Potter-star Stanislav Yanevski.

Casting producer Victor Bozhinov reminded that the idea of selecting a Bulgarian to play Viktor Krum was inspired by the Bulgarian background of the quidditich player in JK Rowling's book.

On Saturday, Harry Potter fans dispose of the unique opportunity to gather in Sofia and get acquainted with the latest Potter game. Event organizers told Novinite.com that more than 800 participants are already on the list.
