Well, this is a great way to start the day: footage from the MTV visit to the set of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is now online. As seen here via YouTube, interviews with actors Dan Radcliffe (Harry) and Rupert Grint  (Ron) are available, as well hearing comments from actress Jessie Cave on her role as Lavender Brown. You can also see behind the scenes looks as they, along with actress Emma Watson (Hermione), are preparing to shoot the winter scene featuring the Trio and Lavender (presumably the necklace scene). Also new are comments from director David Yates on the well publicized new scene that has been written specifically for the movie regarding the Death Eater attack on the Burrow. Enjoy!

This footage is from the MTV "Spoilers" program which will be broadcast on the cable station around the world tonight at 8pm (ET).

Thanks Erna!

I am still so disappointed to hear of the scene in the Burrow. It’s going to take away from the wedding scene in book 7. Sometimes I wonder how much these things are really thought through.

Harry and Ginny do not kiss for the first time during the burrow attack scene. They kiss right after the sectumsempra scene. After the sectumsempra scene Harry and Ginny then take the half-blood prince’s potions book to the room of requirements. Ginny tells harry to close his eyes so she can hide it so harry won’t know where it is and then she kisses him while his eyes are closed.

I am pretty sure they only kiss the one time in HBP and the burrow attack is during christmas and the sectumsempra scene is once they return to hogwarts after christmas.
