BLIMEY Emma looks lovely! Not enough Evanna shown. Why are they spamming up the screen with X-Factor people? Ugh. Dan is like this bottomless well of energy!!! Heh, Rupert looks like he was high. But that’s just Rupert I think. ^^ OH WAIT there’s Evanna. She’s so dang adorable. Heh. “I feel sorta like a fraud walking around on this red carpet thingie.” Love her.

Did anyone else notice that all the cast was wearing a red flower of some sort?

Yeah I was wondering what the little flower thing was about. Interesting.

Oh man Julie Waters always looks like a hip middle aged girl with her short spiky grey hair. I never recognize her. :D

The red flowers are poppies for Remembrance Day/Veterans Day.

Who are the X-Factor?

I thought everyone looked fabulous. It was nice to see Dan & Rupert looking so fit!

Emma made a splash once again. The girl’s got a style that has made me an admirer. I loved Bonnie & Evanna too, especially their interviews. JKR was beautiful and brilliant. And I adored Helena Bonham Carter. She always looks a little wild (lol) to me, but she’s such an amazing actress.

it was epic. i wish i was there. but could someone tell me who/what x-factor is? i have no clue but they kept showing them.

Oh my gosh – there are SO many pictures of Emma. You’d think the movie was Hermione Granger and the Deathly Hallows. Really, I mean, just because she’s now the cute young starlet doesn’t mean she’s the star of the film. (To be clear – I know this is not her doing at all, it’s just the media focus that is getting to be a bit annoying.)

@pygmypeach: Ah i see. Thanks!

@KB Prez: X factor players. I don’t see why they were there and why we had to watch them, As if any fan would be interested in them instead of watching the actors.

I love how Mark Williams said he’s known Matt Lewis since he was ten and he still has his hands in his pockets when he’s doing an interview XD

X-Factor is a British singing competition. Think American Idol but groups instead of individuals.

“Harry/Hermione dance is one of David Yates’ favorite scenes” – Production folks know which actors sell the best. Why WB saw it and not JKR I don’t know, but hey, that’s what fanfiction is for at this point. :) I’ve got my Harry/Hermione Twitter skin, and it’s even WB-official! – they also have Ron/Hermione and individual character shots, including a Dobby skin.
