Other Cast: Nat Tena & Her Band, Mark Williams Gets Show, Ralph Fiennes,Gary Oldman and More

This is our ultimate rundown of what the cast (aside from our favourites) have been getting up to.

Natalia Tena, better known as Tonks, has been busy with her band Molotov Jukebox. 

It's 20 days until the band officially launch in London at the club Heaven (wish i could go!) and tickets can be bought here. For a taste of what the band is about, their album cover is here and their latest video is below.
Her film Long Distance has also won a SXSW award recently and here's an image. Further to this she graced the cover of Piano Magazine to celebrate women in music. Check it out!

Sean Biggerstaff, better known as Oliver Wood (blink and you'll miss him PS through POA Gryffindor Quidditch Captain) is running the London Marathon and even supposed onscreen enemy Tom Felton has got behind him to ask you to sponsor him! You can do so here. He is doing the marathon for the Marie Curie Foundation.

Our favourite Azkaban escapee Gary Oldman has a new movie out, Paranoia, and recently picked up a London Critic's Circle award, and was the recipient of this year's Dilys Powell Award at the 2014 London Critics' Circle Film Awards for his Excellence In Film. Mr John Hurt presented it to him.

An image is right.

Speaking of John Hurt, he was among the cast members who donated for this year's doodle day. Check out his doodle's auction here and the rest are here including Adrian Rawlins(James Potter), Bill Nighy (Minister for Magic Rufus Scrimgeour), David Bradley (Filch),Imelda Staunton (Umbridge), John Cleese (Nearly Headless Nick) and Miriam Margolyes( Prof. Sprout).
Hurt has also been supporting Norfolk City's appeal to "create a much-needed, fully accessible new education and screening space at Cinema City". Find out more here.

The Grand Budapest Hotel (out now) and Voldemort actor Ralph Fiennes has recently came out saying that Potter is to credit for his later roles:
Ralph Fiennes admitted to BBC's Andrew Marr that if it wasn't for his role in the Harry Potter series, and J.K. Rowling herself, he wouldn't be able to make smaller features, like his movie The Invisible Woman
Check out the video below:
