The casting director for the Harry Potter film spoke today of the mammoth response she had in the search for a British boy to play the lead role in the movie. ''We've had a wonderful response...incredible,' said Susie Figgis. In truth, the response has overwhelmed the casting agent. 'We've had more than 40,000 letters,' explains Figgis, 'and we don't want any more people to write to us because we can't quite honestly deal with any more.' Meanwhile Figgis is quietly confident of finding her lead character. 'I think we'll have Harry within the next two to three weeks,' she told Empire Online.
