Bulgarian Stanislav Yanevski cast as Viktor Krum
[with info from Sofia News Agency in Bulgaria]
After announcing last week that it was suspected that a boy from Scotland would get the role, it turns out that a Bulgarian boy will be Krum after all.
After months of silence and controversy concerning the nationality of the future Potter star, Warner Bros. has reportedly decided that Stanislav Yanevski, a Bulgarian boy living and studying in London, will play Viktor Krum in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
The decision was relayed to producer Victor Bozhinov, who was in charge of carrying out the Bulgarian casting for Krum at the end of February.
Warner Bros. in London has made no official announcement yet about this casting, and stated recently that the casting of the new younger actors would remain private until after they are finished with the school year and their exams.
Casting producer Victor Bozhinov commented that the idea of selecting a Bulgarian to play Viktor Krum was inspired by the Bulgarian background of the quidditich player in J.K. Rowling's book.
