Many readers owled to say UK Channel Sky News aired this new video interview today (also here in our video galleries) with actors Dan Radcliffe and Rupert Grint from the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. During the interview,  Dan says that filming of late has been quite busy and he caught a cold after a sequence where he "was lying in a pool of mud and dust and smoke and it irritated my throat and I developed a cold." Rupert Grint confirms that they are making both films at the same time  (ie part one is not yet wholly complete) and things have been very busy with "lots of battle scenes," and noted "we're kind of mixing them together, and because I've got longer hair in the second part I do lose track." Dan Radcliffe says he has not yet filmed any of his scenes at Hogwarts, saying "This is gonna have a very different feel to it," admits Dan. "We barely spend any time at Hogwarts. I've been here for eight months and I've not filmed a single scene in the great hall, which is unheard of. I'm quite excited."

Dan has long hair! Is it just me, or does it look like Dan has a mullet?!

I’m just curious… but with all the recent interviews with Daniel and Rupert, I can’t help but wonder how they are filming so much without Emma? Hermione is in so much of DH except for the end of the book which they wouldn’t need Rupert, or Tom, or the Phelps twins for unless they also needed Emma. Is she done filming her parts of the movie?

And yes, Dan has a mullet. And Rupert’s got GOF hair it seems, though I know he’s supposed to so I’m not bashing! But the mullet…there is no excuse. :)

I think not having time for a hair cut while hiding in the woods from snatchers, death eaters, and Voldemort is a perfectly good excuse for having a mullet.

It sounds great, yet a lot of hard work.

Thanks, Dan and Rupert for the interviews. The next movie should be super, even in two parts.

I am so excited, these interviews are testing my patience, a year is a long time to wait for part one. Oh well, I am sure I will survive.
