David Yates Talks King's Cross Scene for Deathly Hallows, More

A new interview has surfaced online from La Vibra where director David Yates comments on the King's Cross scene for the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Just as in the novel by J.K. Rowling, Harry (played by actor Dan Radcliffe) will appear nude for the dramatic scene where Harry meets his former teacher, the late great Professor Dumbledore. This news follows the confirmation from several days ago regarding the Silver Doe chapter where the Horcrux locket caused Ron to imagine his worst fears and played upon his insecurities and emotions, and Dan Radcliffe will be nude in the scene where the illusion Harry kisses Hermione. Also of interest is apparently another new scene written for the movie, this involving Harry and Hermione dancing. Translation from Snitchseeker:

"Well, Dan (Radcliffe) has appeared nude in the past, but there are a couple of scenes in the new film in which he will undress, but we're still thinking about how we present it. "It's a fascinating scene in which Harry and Ron (Rupert Grint) are trying to kill a Horcrux (a magical creature). It tries to defend itself and creates an image of Voldemort's soul, that shows has a series of images where Harry and Hermione (Emma Watson) are kissing and embracing. And we will create something that feels very sexy and very intriguing to bring about reaction in Rupert (who is in love with Hermione)."There is another scene in Kings Cross station, where Harry almost dies and sees Dumbledore. In that scene he will also be naked," he added.

"It's very difficult to find a favorite scene, but something we just did as part of the movie truly is priceless. It's a scene where Hermione and Harry dance together and is not in the book - it's something we created for the film and is actually very tender, very nice and respectful, and they also reveal some secrets about each other while dancing," said Yates."

Thanks to SS!

You know what would be great? Draco and Ginny kissing as Harry catches them on the Maurauders Map. Priceless! Do you think yates and kloves can add that scene as well?
yes, i am being funny because this is becoming a joke. Looking forward to the remakes on television.

Most people here are angry because Kloves once again transformed Ron/Hermione or a trio scene into a Harry / Hermione one.

Ron and Hermione dancing was something a lot of people were looking forward to seeing. Instead this hack gave us something that wasn’t in the books at all, Harry and Hermione dancing at the wedding.

Now, I am not one of those fans that think the movies should equal books, and love an additional scene.. But -

Harry and Hermione dancing? Their relationship is the ONLY relationship that has been established in the entire movie series!

What about Ron and Hermione?
Or Harry and Ginny?
Or, hell, Harry and Ron?!

Its always bloody Harry and Hermione. Isn’t their winter alone enough for them to ‘establish’ a relatioship?!

But David Yates didn’t come on board of Harry Potter until The Order of The Phoenix. Mike Newell directed Goblet of Fire.

I believe Harry dancing with Hermione will be a nice scene. It will show them talking, as friends… probably about Ron. Also, that might work on constructing Ron jealousy towards Harry and Hermione.

But I’d rather they didn’t put that scene in because I think it detracts the force of Ron dancing with Hermione.

All of that, of course, considering this scene will take part on the wedding. They might put it at some other point in the movie… though I can not imagine when.

" And no where in any of these interviews does it say he’s naked with Hermione, you twats."

Knowing the book, and knowing Kloves, that’s what you’ll get. But that’s not the reason why most people are angry.

People are p*ssed off because Steve Kloves is turning one of the most anticipated Ron/Hermione scenes from the final book (their dance) into a Harry/Hermione moment.

^^ please tell me where it says he turning a R/Hr moment INTO a H/Hr moment! sure there is a part where Harry dances with Hermione, but that doesn’t mean Ron and Hermione can’t dance together too (at the wedding, for example)

I think that the kissing scene will provoke a very strong reaction from Ron, like they’re intending it to, and therefore it won’t turn into the huge Hermione/Harry ship everyone is worried about. I won’t knock it before I’ve seen it. :)

The nude scenes I don’t care about because they’ll obviously use camera work to cover his private parts. The dancing scene well they didn’t say Ron wasn’t dancing with Hermione. Hermione might dance with both of them. The secret thing though. It sounds quite cool actually. Lets hope he doesn’t start saying things that make the movie seem like a joke!

Oh also if ron isn’t dancing with hermione then it may be so ron watches them dance and gets jealous and so when he sees the horcrux vision thing he will see what he had feared. I’m glad they’re making the horcrux scene sexy because I always imagined it like that (lets hope not too sexy though).

Yates is only directing what Kloves writes. You’re not blaming the right person.

OMG! he has so much to work with in the books, he has more than enough on his plate to be adding in made up scenes!!!! i want to see Jo’s story coming out of this movie this time, not his.

Cosmo 409 and Noble Birth Descending – I totally agree!! First of all there is a welth of material to choose from IN the book – and previous films already showed that they couldn’t cope with it – thus it seems almost blasphemy to add anything to it, that will only distort the true and rich story. The friendship of Harry and Hermione is very carefully depicted in the books – there is a deep connection but nowhere was there sexual chemistry. Yates and Kloves are desperately trying to turn the story into a romance, rather than leave it as rich as it is. There are enough romantic films around – Yates and Kloves should have done Twilight – it seems to be the kind of stuff they are after. Please give Harry Potter to someone who cares for the plotline.

Kloves has hated Ron and Ron/Hermione from the moment he signed on to write HP. If there was ANY way he could ruin a moment that the Ron supporters were looking forward to seeing on film (Shrieking Shack, anyone? – not to mention loads of others…), he did it – and continues to do it with DH, from the sounds of it. The Harry/Hermione relationship needs NO more development on film, thank you. It’s the only one that’s been finely honed and detailed in every single film. It’s all of the other important relationships in the books that have been sorely neglected or completely ignored. If it’s true that Kloves felt this Harry/Hermione dance scene was necessary to make Ron’s jealousy more clear to the audience, it’s only to make up for his own serious failings in writing the Ron/Hermione relationship into the earlier films. Had Kloves written the Ron/Hermione relationship correctly early on, as it was represented in the books, he and Yates wouldn’t have to add in this ridiculous scene at all. Ron’s motivations and jealousy in the locket scene would be clear as glass.
