Deathly Hallows Cast and Crew Mark Remembrance Day While Filming Battle of Hogwarts

A very poignant moment took place this week during filming of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and the epic battle of Hogwarts. Just as we mark Veterans day here in the US, the UK held a two minute moment of silence on Tuesday on Remembrance Day to honor those who had fallen during World War I.  A Deathly Hallows crew member issued a text to BBC Radio 5 to say:

"We're currently filming the final battle sequence of the last Harry Potter film, and we stopped for two minutes this morning. It was very eerie, it was thought-provoking, in the mists, along the ruins of Hogwarts."

You can hear the radio mention of this at this link ( around the 1:51 hour mark).

Thanks much to Snitchseeker for emailing!

That would be a very powerful thing to experience, among the rubble of the battle. I’m not even going to try to keep it together when I see the it in the movie… I’ll be bawling.

It was nice that they stopped for a moment of silence… but yeah, that must have been an eerie sight amongst the “ruins of Hogwarts”. Gives me the chills!

Guess That Book

Harry couldn't believe it -- he was free. he rolled down the window, the night air whipping his hair, and looked back at the shrinking rooftops of Privet Drive. Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia, and Dudley were all hanging, dumbstruck, out of Harry's window.[br
