Radcliffe and Watson confirm "DH: Part 2" Ending Reshoots

HitFix has some new quotes from Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) confirming that they are re-shooting parts of the "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" epilogue at Christmas:

"We are re-shooting some parts of it," Radcliffe confirms. "It was an interesting one. I think we made it very hard on ourselves because we shot it at King's Cross for real. And this time we'll  be shooting it at Leavesden on set. To have to rush that sequence and it's an important sequence, is not something any of us want to do." Radcliffe continued and reiterated, "It's a train station and people actually needed to use that platform. We made it very hard on ourselves and we really want a slightly slower, more measured pace next time."
Speaking at the "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" World Premiere in London last week, Emma Watson described filming in a real station as "stressful":
"I mean, you can imagine, we stopped trains when they said we could do the scene.  I mean, we are special - we are 'Harry Potter,'" Watson says in an intentionally sarcastic and light-hearted tone.  "We only had two days to shoot it and we needed so much more time than that. We have reshoots at Christmas."
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" is slated for release on the 15th July, 2011.

“I really hope they redo the make up a bit… from the pictures we saw of them filming the first time, they made them look a lot older than they’re supposed to be in the book. They’re only supposed to be in their mid-30s when the epilogue takes place…”

It’s 19 years later, so that would make them 37. By the time I was 37 I didn’t look like I did at 18. It’s surprising how much you age in your 20s and especially your 30s. And remember, they led very stressful lives – that can age a person a lot.

Awesome! Maybe they’ll make Ron & Harry look better :P I know its silly but I always Pictured Middle-aged Ron with a beard, Probably Balding but definitly with a beard. Plus, he mentioned that he liked the Beard in DH when Hermione is transfiguring him for the break into Gringotts :P

So glad they’re taking the time to re-shoot something they weren’t sure about! It’s nice to know they’re taking special care of these two films. :)

Well, they have enough reasons to re-shoot those scenes. I hope everything will work fine this time.
