MTV has released another interview with actor Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), in which the actor comments on the process the cast and crew and undertaking to age their characters for the much talked about Epilogue scene at the end of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." In the interview, Mr. Felton says:
"For nearly two months, we've all been doing prosthetic tests and all sorts of preparation for the epilogue. I've been having some aging training. You've got to walk differently. There's a slump in your walk."
He goes on to note that filming, which is set for June, will take about three days and "[it's] going to be the last big thing that we do. It's going to be on location." The full interview can be read via this link
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" will be in theaters this November, while Part II will arrive next July.
The end is near. Gads I hate to see this saga end but, end it must. As for learning to walk with a slump, I’m 30 years past 37 and haven’t slumped yet. What gives? But then there is that being on the losing side of a war to age one rather quickly.
I don’t think that when he says “Slump to your walk,” he means hunched and weary. I think he meant that you’ve grown up, so you don’t bounce or hop around while you walk, like kids do, but because you’ve seen so much more, you walk differently, as if stress is weighing you down… but I dunno what could’ve been more stressful than being at Hogwarts when Malfoy was… so I guess I dunno…
