Nick Moran's Potter scenes too gory

Nick Moran has revealed that some of his scenes in the new Harry Potter were cut because they were too gory.

The actor-director plays evil villain Scabior, a snatcher from Fenrir Greyback's gang of werewolves, in Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows.

"The scenes I did were really, really dark, really, really dark, but when I went to see them they cut some of the worst bits out, and I was talking to producer David Heyman, saying, 'Oh no, why's that gone?' He said, apparently it was like watching Saw," Nick told Absolute Radio DJ Christian O'Connell.

Nick - who is promoting his second directorial effort, The Kid, starring Natascha McElhone - has enjoyed being part of the final Harry Potter film, which will be released in two parts.

"It's been brilliant. I'm the new baddie in the Harry Potter film. I can't really give too much away - it's hilarious, because your script has a watermark in it," he recalled.

"It says a number, which is on every page, so that if you lose it, everyone knows it was you. So it's all top secret."

:: The Kid is in cinemas now.
