There is a brief report online today from a recent set visit the Philippine Daily Inquirer made to the set of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." The article, which can be read right here
, features a short discussion with Harry Potter actors Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) and Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) regarding the long-anticipated Epilogue scene, where their characters, nineteen years later, send their children off to Hogwarts. Quoatege:
Like Rupert, who had scenes with a boy actor who plays his child (“The kid looks just like me!”), Tom Felton also acted with a youngster who portrays his offspring. “It was bizarre, nerve-wracking and poignant at the same time, because it reminded me of how I began,” pointed out Tom, who is as nice in person as he is evil as Draco Malfoy.
The article continues, with comments from Potter producer David Baron, who notes that "There are three sensible places where we can do the split." Actor Robbie Coltrane also speaks briefly to the extensive makeup process to become Hagrid, while Mr. Grint again speaks to the kiss he will share with actress Emma Watson in the film.
That was a great interview all around. Robbie has such a wicked sense of humor, he was so perfectly cast as Hagrid. The trio and Draco won’t have aged that dramatically after all it’s only 19 years not 39 years.
Tom Felton is such an adorable young man but the guy who changed his name and built a replica of Malfoy Mansion has to be about 2 bubbles off plumb.
“Two bubbles off plumb”? Oooh, good expression, Hewy… I know a LOT of juicy synonyms for “not right in the head,” but that one is new to me (and I even went to owner/builder school and learned a lot of “carpenterisms”!). Is it British? I’m definitely going to have to find places to use it. Thanks!
My goodness… I can’t wait for this movie to be done and to actually begin to see trailers… and the countdown to get closer… and get dressed up to go to the midnight showing… and see it again the next night… and discuss the movie to no end with other HP fans… and argue about what changes were good and what should have been left as in the book… and to begin this process all over again because of part 2!!!
This is great! The epilogue will definitely be in the Deathly Hllows movie, part 2. I can understand obsessing over the HP movies and books, but to build a Wiltshire mansion and try to emulate Lucius Malfoy is over the top! It is a good thing that Rupert Grint and Tom Felton are so grounded.
omg,, i’m reaaly so excited,,it’s so cool to see someone like you when ur a kid,,seems like youve meet ur future son,,haha:)
