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 full set report from Yahoo!Movies UK may be read right here.

Thanks much to Megan!

A lot of people said that they didn’t like all the “camping” scenes in DH, but I just LOVED that stuff. It felt a lot like the French resistance in WWII – having to be very careful with who you can trust and living underground. Hermione is really the anchor in all this. She saves their butts countless times – always loyal to Harry and the goal of finishing off Voldemort. She does this even to the point of choosing the cause over Ron, much to her distress. The whole book is brilliant and I hope they portray that kind of living on the margins feel the book gives. I am very excited about these two movies!

Dan’s description of Harry being paranoid about everything and everyone in the DH book is so accurate. :D

It will be interesting to see DH Pt 1 this year & see how everything fits together from the previous films until now. It will also be nice to see a change of scenery & see the effect it has on the performance of the actors. It has me quite excited to see some more DH trailers. :D
