Harry Potter fans, aged between 15 and 18, have the golden opportunity of starring in the sixth Potter film, with two key parts up for grabs.

Warner Brothers will be holding open casting sessions for two key roles in the sixth movie, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, on July 1st and 8th.

First, auditions will be done for the part of Lavender Brown, who plays the possessive and hysterical love interest of Haary's best friend, Ron Weasleys, played by Rupert Grint,

"She reacts in an extreme way to everything. She tends to be either laughing or crying hysterically," the BBC quoted Warner Brothers Pictures, as saying.

Then comes casting for Tom Riddle, who is "very charismatic" but has negative shades.

Film producers say that "staff and children are probably all a little scared of him".

Both casting sessions will take place at Earl's Court in London, with applications opening from 10:00 BST.

Earlier, Evanna Lynch was chosen to play the eccentric Luna Lovegood in the fifth film, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, after being picked out as the best applicant from a similar process.
