London, November 17 (ANI): The nine-year-old nephew of Ralph Fiennes, who portrayed Lord Voldemort in the 2005 fantasy film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire , is all set to play a younger version of his uncles character in the next Harry Potter movie.

Hero Fiennes Tiffin plays Lord Voldemort as an 11-year-old in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince , while Stephen Dillanes 16-year-old son Frank Dillane will pay the teenage Voldemort.

The announcement comes days after thousands of children auditioned for the role.

The producers have also announced that they have given Lavender Browns role to 20-year-old professional actress Jessie Cave, who will appear soon on the big screen opposite Dame Helen Mirren in the film Inkheart.

Cave has been selected for the role despite her being two years older than the age stipulated in the auditions held in July, when thousands of 15 to 18 year-old girls were screened.

With the roles of Lavender and the teenage Voldemort, the casting director had someone in mind but felt they should have one more look, Times Online quoted a spokeswoman for the production as saying.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince , which releases next year, will also star cast regulars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson. (ANI)
