With only two movies left to go, the great and the good of British acting have got to get their skates on it they're to appear in a Harry Potter movie, which, as we all know, is the true sign that you've made it. Helen McCrory's (The Queen) agent can now sleep soundly as her client's just been cast as the dastardly Narcissa Malfoy in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, according to Newsround.

McCrory was actually supposed to appear in Order of the Phoenix as Bellatrix Lestrange, but had to drop out due to pregnancy. That role then went to Helena Bonham Carter, who seized the role with both hands and a set of manky choppers. So, it's rather fitting that McCrory will now come in and play Bellatrix's sister, who is also Lucius Malfoy's wife and Draco Malfoy's mother. Spot on casting, we reckon.
