Earlier this week, Chris Rankin (Percy Weasley) and Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) were among those to speak on the Harry Potter Day at Leeds Young People's Film Festival. In a follow up interview about the event, Chris Rankin mentioned that he was due to finish filming "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" shortly. Talking to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Rankin said, "I finish filming mid-May so there's not long to go. It will be strange and very sad to say goodbye."

The Percy Weasley actor also described the Hyde Park Picture House - where the Harry Potter film marathon took place - as "the cinema which time forgot." Rankin remarked that it was "fantastic" to see grandparents and grandchildren together at the event, "enjoying the films as a family." You can find the article on the Yorkshire Evening Post website, at this link.

So far it’s not the end for me. I keep listening to the HP audio cd’s over and over. Myself and my co-worker listen to them at our leisure as we drive home from work. I’ve listened to all seven books at least about three or four times. At this time I’m on HPHBP and my co-worker is just finishing HPDH. No I think I’ll just keep going with my HP audio like the “energizer bunny”. But I know I’ll be sad to break up as the family they have been throughout the years. Maybe they will think about having a HP family reunion once a year; that way if some can’t make it one year then they may be able to make it the next year.

He will be done Mid May but if the 9 years later scene is really shot last there will still be a little more filming after he’s done.

Wow! That must feel so odd for them to say that they won’t be filming for that character anymore…

They sound so heartbroken…… “I finish filming mid-May so there’s not long to go. It will be strange and very sad to say goodbye.”
In my opinion I agree also, saying goodbye to the character you have been recognized throughout the world as for ten years is just so horrible.

Guess That Book

[The egg] was hollow and completely empty -- but the moment Harry opened it, the most horrible noise, a loud and screechy wailing, filled the room. The nearest thing to it Harry had ever heard was the ghost orchestra at Nearly Headless Nick's deathday par
