Another Bulgarian Starlet in Harry Potter Blockbuster
Bulgaria-born Eliza, 16, is the second Bulgarian actor to join the Harry Potter crew after last year Bulgaria-born Stanislav Yanevski, living and studying in London was picked to play Viktor Krum in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
Eliza's family moved to London in 1989. Her mother and father are actors as well. Eliza is studying English literature, cinema and theatre in a special college in the UK.
In an interview for Trud daily the teenage girl said that over 200 teenagers from the theatre school she attended went to a casting for the Harry Potter movie. They picked 5 or 6 people and I was among them, Eliza said. The young actress said that she was involved in the shooting of a quidditch match scene, which took them two weeks to make.
When asked whether she has met the other Bulgarian star in the movie Eliza said that she hasn't met him yet, but underlined that she will probably meet him during the shooting of some of the next scenes.
Last year Bulgaria was obsessed with the Potter mania after it was reported that a Bulgarian boy is wanted for the role of Viktor Krum. The special casting organized in Sofia attracted great interest with over 600 kids trying their luck.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is the fourth film adaptation of J.K. Rowling's popular Harry Potter novel series. It will be released in November 2005. Its Bulgarian premiere has been scheduled for December 2005.
