Washington (ANI): If Warner Bros. gets their way, then music icon Madonna's fans will soon be seeing her daughter Lourdes in the next Harry Potter movie - The Half-Blood Prince. A source revealed that the studio has asked Lourdes, nicknamed Lola, to join the cast, and that she is desperate to accept the one in a lifetime role. "An executive at Warner Brods wanted to cast Lola in the last Potter film and has renewed his interest for the next movie. Lola would love to do it - she is a huge fan," The Sun quoted the source, as saying.
"Lola has definitely inherited her mother's hunger for fame. "After all her recent public appearances, looking more like a sophisticated teen than a child, the attention on her is really growing. Offers have poured in - film offers, sponsorship." However, if Lola decides to join, she will not be the only one with star connections, for actor Ralph Fiennes' nine-year-old nephew Hero Fiennes Tiffin has already signed to play the child version of Lord Voldemort.
Apart from Harry Potter, Lourdes has also been offered a role in a kids' musical similar to Bugsy Malone in development by Warner Bros. Then there's H M's offer to let her launch a line of kids' clothes designed by her. However, there is just one person standing in the way of Lourdes and fame is mum Madonna. Madge, as the source reveals, thinks her daughter is just a bit too young for the fame game.
"Madonna is having serious doubts over letting her do the musical. Even something as innocent as a clothing range she turned down on behalf of Lola. She wants her to lead as normal a childhood as possible," the source said. "But she knows it's inevitable that sooner or later Lola will become famous on her own. Lola has a very strong sense of herself. She has often said she wants to become a dancer."
