Theo Walcott’s WAG to become a film star

Melanie Slade will appear in the next* Harry Potter flick

Melanie Slade burst on to the WAG scene in 2006, when she and the rest of the country’s finest supporting ladies did their best to distract England from winning anything. Since she started romancing weak-shouldered Arsenal favourite Theo Walcott, Miss Slade has been passing the hours with a physiotherapy degree, but according to The Mirror, the Southampton-based beauty has also found herself some gainful employment:

WAG Mel Slade – the girlfriend of England and Arsenal star Theo Walcott – has landed a role in the next Harry Potter film. Mel, 20, appears with Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One.

In the movie, set for release in November 2010, Mel plays a pal of Hermione (Watson) as they watch a game of Quidditch – and she even gets to say some lines.

Mel may thank her fine acting talents for landing this role, but a healthy dollop of nepotism also had its part to play. The film’s director David Yates just happens to be the partner of Theo’s aunt Yvonne.


*The next HP film is out in July, Melanie will be in the one after that.
