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.

This makes me a little sad- the end is near! And I’m also sorry that I couldn’t go to this event, it sounds like it was super fun!

I am glad that they get to complete the cycle, but agree that the ending of something so good is sad.

although chris says hes going to be done filming in may, it wont really seem like its over until the last credits roll on part 2. then, it will probably really sink in. and i will most likely be bawling.

Chris may not be in the epilogue scene as in the book Percy only ‘could be heard loudly discoursing about broomstick regulations’ he mght do some voice work but it’s not 100% yet he’ll be in the final scene, I hope he is though. Perce is one of my favourite characters.

Not sure I’ll be able to contain myself when at the end of 7b it says “The End” as it really will be THE END!

If I feel as though there is going to be a huge void in my life after Deathly Hallows is released, I can only imagine how it must be for these actors-most of whom have grown up playing these characters. I don’t think there’s any doubt that Dan, Emma, and Rupert will have brilliant careers ahead of them, but I often wonder what will happen to the less well known members of the cast.
