-   'Bernice Stegers' (qv) (? - present); 3 children


-   Went to the same school (St. Albans School) as physicist Stephen Hawking and lyricist Sir Tim Rice.

-   After accepting the job for _Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)_ (qv), became the first British director the film series has had.

-   On 13th September 2007, he received an Honorary Doctorate of Arts from the University of Lincoln, England.

-   (2008) Daughter Lizzie (25) works for the Independent talent agency that had been ICM.


-   [on making the fourth Harry Potter movie] "I was very anxious to break the franchise out of this goody-two-shoes feel. It's my view that children are violent, dirty, corrupt anarchists. Just adults-in-waiting basically."

-   I don't like the term chick flick. I think it denigrates a movie. It has overtones of talking down to women, like they are second best. We don't call The Last Samurai a guy flick, do we?

-   Romantic comedies are backbreaking to write because they have to be fresh. I've yet to find another one which was surprising enough to do.


-   _Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)_ (qv) -> $1,000,000


-   "Total Film" (UK), May 1997, Iss. 4, pg. 24-28, by: Jon Smith


-   "The Sunday Times Magazine" (UK), 29 June 2008, pg. 7 + 9, by: Alice Douglas (interviews) Ilan Godfrey (portrait), "Relative Values"
