Once, I was supposed to close a show with a 3-year-old kid and we both had matching outfits. During rehearsal, everything went as planned, but on the day of the show he started crying halfway down the runway, so in my head I thought, “What am I supposed to do?!” I ended up picking him up and I carried him to the end of the runway. This was funny only after the fact.

My children are adorable. My children are fantastic. They’re wonderful, sweet, all of them. Arthur [Bowen] is very good, sort of the quietest of the three and he plays Albus. He’s very, very sweet, young polite. And then there’s the other two. There’s Will Dunn who plays my elder son… who is… [interview reminds him of his name]James! Thank you very much. Oh god… I should have read that script better (laugh). He reminded me a lot of me when I met him in the auditions. I think that’s why I was like “he has to be one of my kids!” Even though he’s not as pale as I am but he has this… he’s very chatty, he’s fourteen… kind of like how I think I am – very bright but not academic. he had a lot of trouble at school. Not trouble but, you know, school wasn’t easy for him, like it wasn’t for me. And he’s super bright, a really smart kid, so that was great to have him as my son. And then there’s Daphnie [de Beistegui] who plays Lily. She was amazing. She’s just like this little, incredible creature. She kind of basically adopted me as her father for the days that we were filming. So she would sort of be hanging onto me as we were walking around the set, which was great. And she’s really, really sweet. They’re all so smart, Arthur, Will and Daphne are all very bright.

Bookworm babies: Tips to create a life-long love of reading in your child
With so many activities and distractions these days, it can be very difficult getting children to actually sit down and read- let alone enjoy it! Luckily, there is one painless key to instilling a love of reading in your children. To get your son or daughter to enjoy reading, start reading to them often and early on.
It is not unusual to read to a baby in the womb. It may sound crazy, but especially toward the end of the pregnancy baby can hear and feel your voice. There aren’t a ton of ways to bond with an unborn child so this is a great way for baby to get to know you. Any reading material will do: book, newspaper, cereal box… whatever is handy!
 
Keep it up once baby is born. Books should be embedded in your kid’s earliest memories. Until they are about six months old, reading material still won’t matter. Once they are around six months, you might move on to baby books (think Dr. Seuss,Baby Einstein, or just picture books). Your baby may be more interested in biting the book so invest in plastic and cardboard books at first. Point out things on the pages to talk about; do animal noises, count trees, or practice colors to engage them a bit. This interactive experience will create fun, positive connotations for your baby.
As your child grows, keep reading exciting and part of everyday life. Make a trip to Barnes and Noble and let her pick out a book; point out books about horses, hockey, or whatever their current interests are. Make a big deal about your child being responsible enough to get her own library card. Continue reading together before bed, and talk during the day about the book the two of you are reading. Ask what she thinks will happen at the end, what good or bad decisions the main character has made, etc. Kids will notice and internalize their parents’ attitude toward reading so be sure to make time for your own reading too.
By making your children’s reading habits a priority, you are giving them an amazing gift. You will find that by reading to them regularly from Day One, your son or daughter will grow up with respect and appreciation for the written word.
[Because I was absent-mindedly googling articles about “How To Raise Your Non Existent Child To Be A Bookworm.”]
