In an offer most young girls would jump at, Madonna's little girl Lourdes has been approached about a role in the next Harry Potter flick. And by all accounts the youngster, who's a huge fan of the boy wizard, is eager to accept.

According to newspaper reports studio execs want to sign Lola, as she's known, for The Half-Blood Prince. The vivacious 11-year-old is often spotted out with her famous mother, wearing the very latest in trendy gear. "Attention on her is really growing," says a source. "Offers have poured in – film offers and sponsorship."

There's just one stumbling block to Lola's desire to break into the big-time – her mother. Madonna has so far vetoed numerous proposals, wanting her daughter to have a normal childhood.

If Lourdes were to get the green light from her mum, she wouldn't be the only well-connected youngster on the set. Ralph Fiennes' nine-year-old nephew Hero Fiennes Tiffin has been recruited to play Harry Potter's nemesis, Lord Voldemort, as a child.
