We have a collection of videos from the recent press launch and premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince today in London, England.

First up is this video montage shot on the rainy red carpet today, including new interview clips with Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, Dan Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson. You can also see footage of Alan Rickman, Maggie Smith, David Bradley, Natalia Tena, Evanna Lynch and many more of the cast at the event in Leicester Square, London. A second video containing interviews with Dan Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, plus video of Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling signing autographs for many fans can be seen here.

Also yesterday, a press conference was held in London before the premiere. Courtesy of CBBC Newsround, we can now watch a lengthy portion of the conference here in our video galleries. A second video from the Associated Press can be seen here.

Nat Tena was there!! wooo where’s David Thewlis…you can’t have Tonks without Lupin!

I didn’t realise that was Maggie smith at first! She’s the mystery woman kissing Rupert in the photos! She looks great!

Radcliffe mentioned that they finished principal photography early last June. Why they finished so late (it should have been done long before then) never was explained.

That was so cool!!! There were THOUSANDS of people there. I"m so jealous. lol. I would stand in a hurricane for Harry Potter. But I loved the part in the second video when Bonnie Wright walked up to Dan and he did a double take! Loved it! The look on his face….

I love how Rupert characterized a “good year” for Ron by saying he gets poisoned a lot :). That was a great video!
