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!

Well, they don’t necessarily film in order…
Sounds like Remembrance day is a lot like Veteran’s Day in the US. We pause to remember and be grateful to all those who have fought in wars. Nice touch that they did that with the whole cast/crew. I too, will be very sad when it is all over!

I have to comment about wing’s post/posts I know that Leaky probably turned one post into many but how could what you have written EVER be appropriate for this news item?

I am pleased that the film makers decided to mark the day with the 2 minute silence, it shows respect, we always do it where I work too and it makes you reflect on those whose lives which have been lost in conflicts all over the world.

That’s awesome of them, how moving to stop and honor those who have fallen. And in such an epic battle of the whole series. I can’t wait.
