Dan Radcliffe Discusses Last Days of Filming
June 18, 2010, 03:52 AM
As readers may recall, filming for "Deathly Hallows" wrapped last week and since then a few of the Harry Potter actors have been discussing their feelings about the film series coming to a close. A new article details Daniel Radcliffe's (Harry Potter) feelings about completing the movies, as well as having been connected to the Harry Potter franchise for nearly ten years:
“I ... we ... were very emotional. I’m not a particularly overly
emotional kind of person. And so, I didn’t really expect it to be ... to
cry ... as much as I did. But I was absolutely devastated at the
moment, because I just thought, ‘Well, what am I gonna do now?’ You
know? I don’t know what my day-to-day life is without Harry Potter,”
Radcliffe said. “I’ve got to sort of find that out.”
In the meantime, he hopes to have a reminder of his Potter days. “I’m
going back (to the ‘Potter’ set) for two — literally two — days, and
I’m going to get the glasses. Gotta get the glasses,” he said of the
iconic specs Harry wore during his days at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft
Radcliffe is certain to have a long acting future before him. But
will that future include a day where he ceases to wake up without a
little bit of Harry Potter inside?
“No. Not at all,” he said. “Every opportunity I get from now until
the rest of my life is derived from the fact that when I was 10 years
old, I got cast as Harry Potter. And I will be forever grateful and very
proud to be associated with it.”

Aw – reminds me of when Elijah Wood got to keep the Ring, and his sword Sting…. and they only shot LOTR for what ? 5 years ? Less ?
This has GOT to be so emotional !! Go Dan !
aw!!!! That is so great that he’ll be proud of it for the rest of his life! And he gets to keep the glasses—-lucky. :)
Oh, bless him.
hmm….i thought of a great idea! Isn’t the timing great? Just when the movies are done, the park opens! I say Dan becomes a permanent fixture acting Harry Potter at the park! He can get paid millions still…..
How about it?
It is wonderful that Dan speaks with so much warmth and fondness for his role and for the experience itself. It just enhances the bond that fans have to the series to know that the actors cared about their work and each other.
To build on an earlier story: Peter Jackson’s Hobbit project has run into financial problems. WB should take over the entire project …and Dan Radcliffe can play Bilbo Baggins ;-)
Hey, for a young actor to be in TWO major iconic projects before he turns 25, that would truly make for a comfortable life and career!
We love you Daniel. And I’m so glad you’ll carry that Potter love forever :)
Dan is just awesome.
budb alas if I remember correctly there were rumors about Dan being approached for the role of Bilbo. I dont remember if the rumors were true or not but, Dan stated that he wasnt going to be in the Hobbit movie.
When he has tough moments (maybe some critics on his future roles or smth like that) he will put on THE glasses and remember that he is a star))
I can understand Dan’s feelings because I feel the same way. It’s the end of an era. I hope Dan does get the glasses, he deserves them for all his hard work. Those glasses belong to him, he earned them.
Aww he cried :) I did to when it was over thoughits sad to think it’s “the end” though
aww,gotta love Dan :) love how he said he’ll always remember HP
oh,and i just feel the same-i guess we all do-…just dunno what i’ll do after the last film comes out :(
wow, its hard to believe that its all over, and Dan is such a great guy, im glad he got the glasses
that is sad and awesome! i would be sobbing in tears if i was him!
Awww :’( I bet they all cried so hard :(
He should be able to keep the glasses :) They must be part of him now :)
All the characters will be a part of them :)
