Inside the fascinating lives of the young Harry Potter cast

They were the trainee wizards that had us spellbound in the Harry Potter films – but where did they get to when Hogwarts closed its doors?

Earlier this month new dad Rupert Grint – who starred as Ron Weasley – shared a picture of his daughter Wednesday, five months, and joined Instagram, immediately racking up 1 million followers.

While Rupert and co-stars Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) have gone on to stellar careers in stage and screen, some of their classmates have taken different paths.

Almost two decades since the first movie Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone broke box office records by grossing £763 million ($A1.4 billion) worldwide, the child stars have gone on to become a bodybuilder, a Playboy model and a cage fighter.

One also found himself on the wrong side of the law – even before the eight-film franchise was over.

As courts deny Trump election challenges, president says Biden must prove votes were cast legally

One day after President Donald Trump said he would leave the White House on January 20 barring a massive revolt from Electoral College voters, Trump walked back his statement on Friday.

In a tweet, Trump says that President-elect Joe Biden will only be allowed in the White House if he can prove that he had 80 million votes. In America, voters cast private ballots. Once a vote is tabulated, it is no longer traced to the voter. Lawmakers put in measures such as secret ballots in the late 1800s amid an era of voter intimidation. Non-secret ballots are generally a violation of international law.

“Biden can only enter the White House as President if he can prove that his ridiculous ‘80,000,000 votes’ were not fraudulently or illegally obtained,” Trump tweeted. “When you see what happened in Detroit, Atlanta, Philadelphia & Milwaukee, massive voter fraud, he’s got a big unsolvable problem!”

Jude Law was warned while filming a similar pandemic was coming

Contagion, jude law, global pandemic, covid-19, coronavirusWhen the COVID-19 pandemic was in its infancy in the United States and seemed much more like an overseas problem, pandemic films began to surge in popularity across streaming platforms. The one film that really seemed to find a new life was 2011’s pandemic thriller, CONTAGION, which climbed high on the Itunes chart as many people seemed to be having pandemic influenced movie marathons before this overseas problem became a worldwide problem that has since made 2020 a year that many of us won’t want to remember. Directed by Steven Soderbergh, the film concerns the spread of a virus transmitted by respiratory droplets and fomites, attempts by medical researchers and public health officials to identify and contain the disease, the loss of social order in a pandemic, and the introduction of a vaccine to halt its spread. The movie featured an impressive ensemble cast that includes Marion Cotillard, Matt

Ed Smith of Mendham, New Jersey talks about a typical day fishing on the Upper Delaware River.

Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin

Q: In past years, the night before lotteries have generally allowed hunters — with a few refuge exceptions — to add additional hunters to their lottery entry. Lottery refuge hunters went up and down the valley entering their names as well as their hunting partners’ names and GoID.

This year, with COVID-19 limitations, hunters are limited to entering lotteries at one refuge per person. Will applicants be allowed to add an additional hunter to their ticket? What if the other hunter is at a separate check station entering his/her partner’s GoID?

— Aaron

A: For most wildlife areas and refuges this season, all hunters applying for the lotteries the night before shoot days have to

Hearing set on proposed ban of remote-controlled devices for fishing | Montana Untamed

The Fish and Wildlife Commission will hold a public hearing via a telephonic Zoom platform on Dec. 1, at 10 a.m., to consider a proposed rule banning the use of remote-controlled devices and drones while fishing.

Fish, Wildlife & Parks has increasingly been asked if it is permissible to use a remote-controlled boat, drone, or other remote-controlled device to fish. Currently, Montana law does not specifically address remote-controlled devices or drones, and gives the commission discretion to allow or prohibit this activity. Possible uses of remote-controlled devices and drones while fishing include transporting bait and hooks long distances beyond where anglers can physically cast, transporting bait and hooks to areas that normally are unable to be accessed such as closed areas near dams, scouting large areas above water quickly for fish and filming fish in real time, dropping hooks or bait with exceptional accuracy, and landing fish.

Jude Law and the cast and crew of “Contagion” were better prepared for COVID-19 than most.

Law recently caught up with GQ for a video breaking down his most iconic roles. The two-time Oscar-nominee expanded on his performances in “The Talented Mr. Ripley” and “Cold Mountain”, but the details surrounding “Contagion” were the most timely. Law revealed that scientists serving as advisors on the film warned everyone on set about an impending pandemic.

As runoff nears, here’s a look at the explosion of mail-in ballots in 2020: ‘The system works’ | Elections

Charlene Menard, the registrar of voters in Lafayette Parish, got an email during the presidential election from a woman who wanted to know if her grandmother’s vote had been counted.

After checking the records, Menard wrote back to inform the caller that no, the vote wasn’t tallied. Her grandmother had been dead since 2005. “I think it was just somebody trying to see if someone voted in her place,” Menard said. 

Across Louisiana, voters chose to cast their ballots by mail in the Nov. 3 election at unheard-of rates. In all, 167,416 people voted by mail in Louisiana. That shattered the previous record of just over 63,000, set in 2016, even though state officials did only a modest expansion of mail voting during the pandemic.

Early voting is underway for the Dec. 5 runoff election to choose between candidates who did not win outright on Nov. 3.

Warner Bros.

Jude Law revealed that while shooting the 2011 thriller Contagion, scientists involved in the production warned the cast and crew that a similar real-life pandemic was inevitable.

In a new video for GQ, Law discussed some of his most iconic characters, including the conspiracy theorist he played in Contagion, which centers on a deadly virus wiping out humanity.

“There was absolutely the sense that this was going to happen,” Law said. “The great scientists on set with us who had worked with Scott [Z. Burns] the writer and [director] Steven [Soderbergh] were very learned and experienced individuals who knew what to expect. They all said to us that this was going to happen — and it was a case of when rather than if.”

Law continued, “The way they described it, which is exactly

How Detroit became the central scapegoat of the ‘Stop the Steal’ crusade

DETROIT — Many Detroiters share a simple theory as to why President Donald Trump’s election fraud claims land squarely on Motown. They believe it was racism.

Wearing an aging satin jacket with a faded autoworker logo, 82-year-old Abdul Omar flagged down a public bus outside the Detroit Department of Elections office on West Grand Boulevard last week.

“Well,” said Omar, who is Black, laughing through his face mask, “you hate to play the ‘race card,’ but sometimes …”

Omar is one of nearly 234,000 Detroiters whose vote for President-elect Joe Biden was targeted by President Donald Trump and his supporters for disqualification over claims of vote count irregularities and election fraud.

“By Hook or by Crook,” Omar said, remembering the title of a book that caught his eye while walking the dusty aisles of Detroit’s famous John K. King Used and Rare Books store the day prior. “I said, ‘Yeah,
