First Official Photo from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Plus New Video Interviews

UPDATE: Here it is in glorious High Res, thanks to WB.

December kicks off in fine style as USA Today has the first official photo from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (or right here in our image galleries.) Readers will recall this scene was shot in London, England last April as you can see right here from this location photo. The USA Today article has several new quotes from actor Rupert Grint, who speaks about Ron Weasley, Harry Potter (Dan Radcliffe) and Hermione (Emma Watson) during the course of the films:

"They're paranoid," says Grint. "It's quite a scary world because the Snatchers and Death Eaters are running around everywhere. Harry, Ron and Hermione are just camping out in random places, living rough, in regular clothes." Snatchers and Death Eaters are minions of the evil Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes).

Grint adds, grinning: "Me and Dan actually have some stubble." His facial hair served as a kind of invisibility cloak for the lanky, redheaded Grint, who went unrecognized by fans recently while on location in the Welsh countryside. Dubbed a "road movie" by producer David Heyman, Hallows was envisioned by director David Yates as more grounded in reality than the previous Potter movies."

In addition, the BBC has new interviews with the cast including Dan Radcliffe and Bonnie Wright (Ginny), who address life after the Harry Potter series has concluded. You can also watch a nice long interview with Dan Radcliffe and Rupert Grint right here, (or available here in our galleries) plus see the interview with Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) with the BBC here at this link (or here in our video galleries). Producer David Heyman also weighs in on their future:

David Heyman, who has produced all of the Harry Potter films, is confident that the global stars that he's helped create will go on to further success."They've had a good structure here and at home, they are pretty solid kids," he says. "They are going to go and have great fun - they are going to have great success. I'm sure they will thrive."

He adds: "I think they all know I'm here to support them, and if they ever want a chat I'll be there for them. "Ultimately they've got to leave the fold and take flight - and I know they will."

I wonder what they are looking at? Hermione looks kind of horrified.

Oh my gosh, reading the comments make me tear up :( It really just seems like yesterday that we saw the first HBP picture… and now Deathly Hallows! Wow. Look at how much the trio have grown too! This reminds me of the picture in the first movie where they’re walking on the chess board. Awww.

I’m not ready for the movie just yet (can’t even think about how said it’ll be when it’s all over), but I am sure ready for more pictures and teaser trailers! :D

sigh My hopes for a Dan with the RIGHT hair suddenly vanish…. He’s really starting to look more and more like Debbie Downer (SNL)…

You know it’s the first image of an HP film when people start complaining about Dan’s hair. I’m going to miss this.

Everyone is talking about the first HBP picture…but I remember way back when when the hype was steadily increasing, with the book release of OoTP and the movie GoF in 2005…5 years ago….so sad it’s all coming to an end…again….:(

I don’t think it’s sunk in yet because I’m feeling all giddy and excited at the prospect of DH part 1 coming up. I’m not feeling sad at all. :D
