“Potter” star says she won’t appear in sequel for same pay

Actress Zoe Wanamaker, a star of the Harry Potter film, has
said that she will “boycott” the sequel unless Warner Bros. boosts the
salaries of the actors.

In an interview with the London Sunday
Times
, Wanamaker said that she received less for making the movie
than she did for a recent BBC production. She also claimed that she and
other British actors will receive no residual payments. The Sunday
Times
quoted her as saying: “We have all been cyber-scanned so we
can all be replicated [in computer games]. It’s bad form. Even the
costume designer who came up with these amazing creations will get no
residuals. It’s shocking and disgraceful. … Some actors signed
three-film deals but the money was so crap I was insulted so just signed
for one. If they want me for a second they will have to up their rates.”
