A Harry Potter Wizard Walks around Havana
The British actor Roger Lloyd Pack, world famous by his portrayal of Barty Crouch Sr. in the film adaptation of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, is expected to perform Tonight at the Havana Theater Festival.
Lloyd and a group of friends of the late British playwright and Nobel Prize winner Harold Pinter came for the first time to Cuba to pay a posthumous tribute on Wednesday and Thursday to the Pinter.
The world premiere of the short play Umbrellas at the National Museum of Fine Arts in Havana, as part of the program One Night with Harold Pinter, stands as a tribute the champion of the Cuban cause.
Lloyd explained that Umbrellas was premiered by Pintor to a small group of friends in 1960 in the United Kingdom; after that, the script disappeared.
"It is one of Pinter's first works as playwright and is a short sketch, but very interesting", Lloyd explained. Currently, Lloyd is working in Budapest, shooting the Showtime TV series The Borgias, produced by Neil Jordan.
Meanwhile, Lloyd declared to be enjoying his first visit to Havana, the nice Caribbean weather and the old US cars that travel the Havana streets.
