Naomi Watts reportedly has finally landed the role of Narcissa Malfoy in "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince."
Previously perceived to eye a supporting slot in "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" last May, seems Naomi Watts now gets what she wants.
According to Australia's The Courier-Mail, the Academy Award nominee has just signed on to play Narcissa Malfoy, the wife of Lucius Malfoy and mother of Draco Malfoy. Also the sister of Bellatrix Lestrange and cousin of Sirius Black, the character is described as a tall, slim, pale, blue-eyed blonde whom Harry considers to have "a look that suggested there was a nasty smell under her nose."
The sixth installment of "Harry Potter" film franchise, "Prince", set during the teen wizard's sixth year at Hogwarts, details Lord Voldemort's past and Harry's preparations for the final battle amidst emerging romantic relationships plus the emotional confusions and conflict resolutions characteristic of mid-adolescence. It is also reported that "Elizabeth" star Joseph Fiennes and Irish actor Stuart Townsend have joined Watts in the movie's cast.
