Yahoo!Movies UK has published a short set report from a recent visit to the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" set. The article contains quotes from actors Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) on the "road movie" feeling of the latest Potter film, commenting on filming outside the traditional Hogwarts sets. On this subject, Miss Watson notes:
"It was so nice to be outside, in the forest and out of the studio - running about. It was so much fun. Because it’s such an emotional, heavy film, it was nice to get out and do some action stuff. They were very fun scenes to film. Being out of Hogwarts just makes it really different. It just gives the audience a whole different experience. I’m so excited to see it together."
Mr. Radcliffe agrees, saying, "It might take people a while to adjust to this one... The main thing is we’re not at Hogwarts. It makes a huge difference. It gives the film a totally different feel." Additionally, the young Harry Potter actor spoke to the changes in his character over the course of the final film, relating that "Harry is like a Roman Emperor in his last days and everyone is turning on him." He continues:
"Harry is completely paranoid about what Ron and Hermione are saying about him. He thinks they’re doubting his leadership, but while he is asking people that, he himself is doubting his leadership. He has no plan, so he is pretty useless."
Huh…no Hogwarts. I mean, we knew that but until you read it, I guess it hasn’t seemed real yet. Bitter-sweet information; excited to see DH1 but utterly depressed that the end is so near.
I admit, I was kinda iffy when I realize this will not be shot in Hogwarts, but this new pace of direction is definitely exciting!
This movie is gonna kick some major arse indeed! HARRY POTTER ROCKS! Twilight who? As it is the last one,it´s gonna be a bit depressing…Ugh! HP will be over! No more books(cried my eyes out) No more movies (NOOOO)
I like how Harry gets paranoid about what Ron and Hermione are saying bc it proves how afraid he is of losing his friends.It has nothing to do with leadership,really.His major fear is to be left alone.And when Ron leaves he gets even worse.“First Ron and now I´m gonna lose Hermione if I don´t get a move on.”It´s such an agony.I love Dh,it´s my favourite book.I am super excited about this movie.Harry and Ginny together,Ron and Hermione Let the countdown begin!
