Jessie Cave has been cast in the role of Lavendar Brown in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

And it sounds like Rupert Grint, who portrays Brown’s boyfriend Ron Weasley, is pleased with the selection:

“I was involved with the Lavendar Brown audition and the whole Lavendar thing,” the young actor recently said. “Her name’s Jessie, and she is really cool, and it’s going to be really funny.”

Jessie Cave, we hope you enjoyed anonymity. A role in the next Harry Potter film should sky-rocket this young actress to stardom.

The 20-year old Cave is relatively unknown, having starred alongside Helen Mirren in Inkheart. She’ll appear in a BBC drama called Summerhill next year.

The next Harry Potter movie is set to hit theaters November 21, 2008.
