Here is a brief update for all of you wizards and witches anxiously awaiting any new update on Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
Those of us who have read the book know that Potter will jump into the pensieve again but this time he will sift through Professor Snape's memories. What does the Professor not want Harry to see? How about a younger Snape going at it on Hogwarts grounds with both Sirius Black, James Potter and Lupin; to name a few.
James Walters Talks Order of the Phoenix
HPFZ recently caught up with James Walters and got the young actor to spill a few details from the set of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
HPFZ: How did you manage to score the role of young Sirius Black?
JW: My drama teacher at school saw a picture of me in a school play and recognized an immediate resemblance to the actor who plays Lupin, so I met with one of the casting directors called Charlie and auditioned for the part of young Lupin. It wasnít until the third round when they then relocated me to the part of young Sirius. After a few more callbacks, I sat a private one-on-one interview with Fiona Weir, and then was told I had gotten the part a month later. All in all, it took roughly six months.
HPFZ: Have you begun filming as young Sirius Black yet? If so, how do you think you did?
JW: Our scene is being filmed in July, as the production is in the middle of a one-month hiatus currently so we can finish our exams, but we did have a screen test in costume with some other actors, which gave us a great insight into what the procedure will be like. Iím really looking forward to it.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix will be released on July 13th, 2007.
