Potterheads, rejoice! Dumbledore lives!!!
Michael Gambon, the actor who played the iconic Professor from the Prisoner of Azkaban until the very end, has been cast in J.K. Rowling's upcoming HBO mini-series The Casual Vacancy.
Which is SO EXCITING!
The former Harry Potter actor is set to play Howard Mollison, who fans know as the owner of the Pagford deli!
Other cast members announced include Rory Kinnear, Julia McKenzie, Kelley Hawes, Monica Dolan, and Abigail Lawrie!
While the rest of the casting news will be announced at a later date, filming is set to begin on July 7th in the South West of England!
So, alright… Dumbledore doesn't exactly LIVE, but it's certainly exciting to see him in action again in another of J.K.'s novels coming to life!
We can't WAIT to watch!!
