Dan Radcliffe: "Final stretch" of Deathly Hallows Filming After Christmas

Australian morning television show Sunrise Seven has a short video online from a recent Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows set visit, during which actors Dan Radcliffe (Harry), Bonnie Wright (Ginny), Rupert Grint (Ron), and Tom Felton (Draco) spoke briefly about their experience making the film.  While discussing the end of the Deathly Hallows production, Mr. Radcliffe notes that the final leg of filming, set to get underway after the Christmas holidays, will be both a "sad" and "exciting" experience.  Quoteage:

"It'll be funny after Christmas because after Christmas then we really are on the home stretch then... and it will be strange.  It will be very, very odd, and very sad.  But, equally, it'll be very exciting to not to have to say to people 'Sorry, I won't be available for another four years.'  I am excited about it."
Brief glimpses of such sets as Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes and the cluttered Room of Requirement are seen during this clip, along with a few behind the scenes looks from the Half-Blood Prince filming.  The full clip can be viewed right here in our Video Galleries.

Thanks to Feltbeats for the news!

I feel sad for them. I wonder if it’s like how we all felt june 2007. Excitement for the end, and sadness we’ll never have a new potter book again.

bellatrix, i think that most of the cast and crew do probably feel the same way as we all did in 2007. like most of us, most of them had given up a decade of their lives to this series. (all totally worth it, of course.) and now, for them to just stop working on those movies is probably going to be one of the hardest things they ever had to do. i hope that for dh part 1 and 2, as part of the special features, they include a documentary about that, including footage of the last scene that was shot and the aftermath and the emotional turmoil going around.

I don’t suppose it will be any different for these kids than for any of us graduating from high school, or college/university; the experience ends, but new ones begin, and if there are people that you will miss, well, then, you stay in touch with them. Which is easier now than it ever has been in the past! As for all of us, well, there are endless ABC Family Harry Potter Weekends, not to mention our own DVD collections…. And The Books!!

So… bring on the “Beedle the Bard”-movie!

Ah well, alright… it WILL be sad when 7.2-Extended is out on Blu-Ray… because that will really be the last we will get of the movies.
