The first of many images and reports from the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix film premiere in London today are beginning to come online. TLC was in attendance at the premiere and will have our full report and pictures from the event online shortly. In the meantime, Reuters has one of the first articles online from the red carpet which includes reactions from a few of the thousands of fans who attended the premiere and features a number of quotes from the actors. Fans were “super excited” to see the actors arrivals, Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) said of the fans reaction:

“Every time I come to a premier. I see more and more fans. It gets bigger and bigger,” she said, while adding of her character: “She’s kind of changing, becoming more of a rebel. but it’s kind of fun to play.”

Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) also discussed the film saying, in part:

“Toward the end of the film… there’s not many laughs to be had,” he admitted, while insisting that there were some lighter moments. “While there’s not actually direct comedy, there’s some really heartfelt emotion. “There’s goodness in it,” he said.

Getty has the first images from the premiere which can be seen here. They feature the arrivals of many cast members of OotP including: Dan Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Katie Leung, Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Bonnie Wright, Evanna Lynch, Matthew Lewis, Imelda Staunton, Harry Melling and J. K. Rowling. Photos from the OotP after party can also be seen here.

In addition, the BBC has a gallery of pictures online from the event that showcases the actors, fans and Death Eaters!

The Daily Mail also has a write up of the arrivals along with a few photos of Dan Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint arriving (in the rain) at the premiere.

Channel Five in the UK also has the a video report from the event, which shows the fans along the red carpet and even features a brief appearance by our own Melissa Anelli and Sue Upton. You can view the short video report here in our video galleries.

Updates: BBC News has published a further article on the premiere that includes a few new quotes from J. K. Rowling as well as a short video interview with Dan Radcliffe on the red carpet. We have now created a OotP London Premiere Photo Album in our Image Galleries which will be continually updated as new pictures come in. More images can be seen via WireImage as well.

A third BBC report is in our video galleries thanks to roonwit. A reporter for the Entertainment 24 program spoke with author J. K. Rowling, Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid), Richard Griffiths (Uncle Vernon) and Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) on the red (green) carpet.

More interviews and photos are sure to be online soon. Be sure to check back to Leaky for our own reports and photos live from the event!
