in an interview to promote the latest instalment in the film franchise – Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, due for release on July 15 – he said:
I’m an atheist, but I’m very relaxed about it. I don’t preach my atheism, but I have a huge amount of respect for people like Richard Dawkins who do. Anything he does on television, I will watch.
And he joked:

I was going to watch the movie anyway, but now I feel some kind of camaradarie needs supporting.
Attaboy. You tell ’em!
