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.

I would have loved to have been there but I had to work shift yesterday evening. DAMN IT! Looked AMAZING though, The trio were on great form and Evana looked lovely, so did Bonnie (in fact all the cast looked great all dressed up for the premiere).

WOW! I had missed the orignal piece….we’re here, in the US, and it’ kinda hard to coordinate! (arrggghhh} One might say, we’re “uncoordinated”!
That piece was LOVELY! Dame Maggie is looking good, although a little tired!
Ivanna looks striking! Everyone just looks great. OMG……7 more days!!!!

I like seeing Daniel, unlike most “superstars”, joking with the camera and other actors while he is on the red carpet. Adds a whole lot a fun to the day…we need to see that more often at premiers.

I know that he has personally said that how he acts on the carpet is not how he acts alone but it’s still refreshing.

There should be a premiere in all the countries where Harry Potter is a massive success.Brazilian fans are completely left out! Several fans would love to be there in London but can´t and that´s truly unfair. Harry Potter is Harry Potter bc of Jo Rowling,WB and especially… THE FANS. Ok,ok. We still have two more premieres ahead of us. Thank God DH was splitted in two.That way I have more time to save money and go to London!
