The Harry Potter stars have begun to arrive at the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" US Premiere in New York City's Alice Tully Hall. Leaky is on the red carpet ready to bring you exclusive footage!

Update: The live streamed coverage is now over, but stay close to Leaky for more images, videos and more from the red carpet to be uploaded throughout the evening.

7.22 pm ET: The actors all seem to have gone into the screening. Answering a question about why Radcliffe hadn't gone the route of the arrogant child star stereotype, the Harry Potter actor said, "there are hundreds of thousands of actors who aren't arrogant and you only hear about the ones who are." Speaking to his excitement for more adult roles, Radcliffe said he was currently "playing a father and a widower [in The Woman in Black] but I do want to play my own age at some point." Of his preparations for How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Radcliffe said his dancing and singing lessons were going well and that "singing is something I am comfortable with, dancing... not so much!"
7:20 pm ET: Emma Watson's dress is Calvin Klein.
7:17 pm ET: Lots of questions about the kisses this evening, Watson said Radcliffe was "a real gentleman" and of his comments about his kiss with Emma, Radcliffe chuckled and said, "I said this in an interview and I was so stupid to say it  but 'animal' in the context that I was talking about it is purely complimentary"
7:16 pm ET
: Emma Watson: "I'm meant to be in school but I wouldn't miss this for the world."
7.12 pm ET: Rupert Grint: "never being invisible is pretty crazy". Rupert wasn't allowed to be in the room during the kiss scene with Emma and Dan because he kept laughing.
7.08 pm ET: Daniel Radcliffe on what he would tell himself 10 years ago: "The same advice my parents told me: don't ever read the articles people write about you or watch the interviews." On hanging out with his co-stars post Potter: "We're all going to be quite busy but I'll be in the same country as Emma next year so no doubt we'll be hanging out quite a bit"
7.07 pm ET: Hmmm... is that AVPM, AVPS and now, "Glee" star Darren Criss Leaky sees before us?
7.03 pm ET: Spotted on the red carpet: Madonna's daughter, Lourdes.
6.58 pm ET: Daniel Radcliffe has arrived in the press area. Emma Watson is taking photos with Sarah Jessica Parker.

Oh NY was such a disappointment! WB rep should be shot for such a crappy job! Fans were so let down & at this time, tis the wrong time to do us a disservice as they did.
Rupert & Emma were a gem. they came out after all the fans had practically left & signed & took pictures. I was the lucky one.
I do hope that they plan on two openings in the states next year. One in LA & one in NY that way we can say goodbye properly.
ZIEGFELD next year! Someone from WB better hear. I think there were a couple of people looking for the bum that organized this shamble. Every coverage blew. I guess what they are telling me is that i may have to go to London for the premiere & wait in the rain!

I was slam at the front of one of the barriers. Sorely disappointed that everyone was ushered so quickly into the press tent. I truly cried, I was that disappointed. My friend came from TX and we then drove from NC to be there and were broken hearted. Glad we stuck around though – shortly after they announced all the cast had gone in to see the film, much of the crowd left, then Rupert and Emma came out to sign autographs. Missed Emma, she was rushed through so fast we couldn’t catch her. Was able to meet Rupert and get a pic with him – but his security rushed him as well. He is so kind and sweet, and I honestly feel that if it weren’t for his security guards, he would spend time with every single person there. We waited. And waited. And waited. And Dan did not come back out. Security told us the movie had started around 8:30 and that if he was going to come out, it would be after the 2.5 hour film. Well…after having been there since before dawn in the freezing cold, inhaling exhaust fumes (I’m now quite sick), hungry….with no promise that he’d be out – we gave up and went back to our hotel. Don’t know whether he did or didn’t come out – but I will say this. I ran into a very little girl – about 8ish I’d say – and she was crying so hard you could barely understand her. She was crying that she hated him, that she hated Harry Potter and would never watch another film again. My heart broke for this little girl. I know the publicists and what not are responsible for how things are run – but this premiere – that little girl – the whole thing tore me apart inside. I won’t deny it made me cry.

"'S' up, Figgy?" he said, staring from Mrs. Figg to Harry and Dudley. "What 'appened to staying undercover?"[br]"I'll give you undercover!" cried Mrs. Figg. [i]"Dementors,[/i] you useless, skiving sneak thief!"[br]"Dementors?" repeated Mundungus, aghast.
