MTV has released several articles where actor Daniel Radcliffe discusses the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. In a video and print interview found here, Dan speaks of the constant changes and hectic pace of the final films in the Harry Potter series, saying "It's chaos and it's fear and we're terrified we're not going to get it right, and it's absolute madness with rewrites and script changes and scripts not being written and then coming," he said with a smile. "It's just mad...Amidst all that, something wonderful hopefully will emerge," Radcliffe said. "That's what I quite like about the film industry. Chaos bears something so cool and great and polished out into the world."

There is also a second piece from MTV where Dan, Tom Felton (Draco) and Rupert Grint (Ron) discuss the music they listen to before preparing to film Deathly Hallows. Dan says he listens to  "loads of stuff. I often come back to stuff like Radiohead and Hope of the States for those harder scenes."Tom Felton chimes in stating,"Daniel loves it in the makeup room," Felton said. "He thumps it out — we're talking 6 in the morning — some '60s ska/punk band. It's like, 'All right, man!' He loves it."Tom also says"I'm more of an earphones guy," he said. "I like my chilled acoustic music. Big fan of Jack Johnson." Rupert is cited as listening to Mogwai while reading the Deathly Hallows script and "a lot of instrumental music from bands like the Black Lips

Finally, while we have seen this on Youtube recently, you can also see yet another deleted scene from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince here.

They don’t have a clue what they’re doing. That’s reassuring !

He is so right….often the best films are made from Chaos ….sounds like they
are having a blast as well…..they are sorely going to miss each other and
this family of thiers.

Do not worry about the script revisions, everyone. Practically every film sees its script modified until the very last day of filming. As the cameras begin to film, new ideas and problems arise that force the people creating the film to reconsider their initial plans. It is not so much a flaw as a means of enriching. Do you think we should prevent an author from editing or rewriting a scene after they have initially wrote it?

I just hope they won’t delay the films because of this chaos!

I always worry about script revisions when Kloves is involved. Of course, I also worry about the initial script when Kloves is involved as well. Let’s face it, with Kloves on board there is naught to do but worry.

Jeez – enough with the Kloves-bashing! All the films have been beyond awesome, and the script for HBP is a serious Oscar-contender. All films evolve from chaos, magic-at-work.

At least they’re “trying to get it right!” They better.

Rewrites is nothing to be scared about. It’s completely natural. I suffered through them a lot on The Simpsons Movie. It never really occurred to me what kind of rewriting is required for Harry Potter because the books are already out This is actually encouraging because it shows they are trying to get it just right. They are nervous about delivering the best which is creating the chaos but will produce perfection in the end.

Great little interviews! It doesn’t surprise me that they are going through a little chaos still with the movies… I mean they are filming both of them at the same time, so they aren’t really even done with Part 1 yet.
