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."
The Deathly Hallows will be a totally new experience. The movie will have much more action in it and also alot of drama(young adult problems). I can’t wait to actually see the part in the Ministry of Magic, Godric Hollows, Wedding, Malfoy Manor and the Battle at Hogwarts. Oh my gosh I just can’t wait!!!!
I’m so excited to see Harry, Ron & Hermione’s quest to find the Deathly Hallows. The last two films are going to be full of adventure! It’s good that they will show Harry’s fear and self-doubt because it shows he’s human. His frustration and anger would only be natural, given his circumstances.
WOW it is so great to hear that ALL three of the trio still enjoy the filming of the Movies, and they have all developed into quite extroadinary talented Actors and Actresses throughout the filming of these movies!!!!! I feel the last one being done in two parts will be awesome!!! and that this will give them more opportunity to fit all of the loose ends into it, and everything that is necessary to leave people with a real sense of closure in a good way!!!
