Sporting fans and Harry Potter actors Dan Radcliffe and Tom Felton are currently taking in cricket game right now, watching the match between Australia and England. UPDATE: In a very fun and delightful interview now concluded Dan Radcliffe and Tom Felton both spoke at length about their love of cricket, their friendship and working on the set of Harry Potter, noting they are friends despite the animosity between their characters. Dan confirmed they have just finished a week of night shoots, but did not reveal what scenes they had been filming, and said he has been working on Deathly Hallows since February and would likely continue production until the 'middle of next year.'  When asked about the similarities between cricket and Quidditch, Dan said enthusiastically the rules for both are 'needlessly complex' and said his ideal dream job would be to follow his favorite cricket team around the world into obscure places and talk about the sport he loves. Tom Felton spoke eloquently and passionately of his great love of the sport of cricket, and also joked about his hair color several times Finally, in another hilarious turn, they both gave their thoughts should Hagrid take on the sport of cricket. UPDATE 2: You can now see video of them at the match here thanks to TLC reader Katya, and listen to the interview here at this link courtesy of Lauren and our Order partner DanRadcliffe.com UPDATE 3: Photos can be seen on the BBC flickr here (Dan), here of Tom, and here of both young men, as well as this from twitter.

Thanks Karen, Simon, Katya and all who emailed!

well it was good to see them at the cricket stadium and they would have enjoyed England’s victory over Aussies and winning back the Ashes

I just listened to the interview, they were both such enthusiasts, it was lovely to listen to them, I love test match special so it was a joy to here Aggers interviewing them. The photo on the TMS site was really good, (the one that was also on Aggers Twitter) you could see what a great time they were having.
