Dan Radcliffe Discusses Last Days of Filming

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 and Wizardry.
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.”

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!

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.

The creature slipped off the bed and bowed so low that the end of its long, thin nose touched the carpet. Harry noticed that it was wearing what looked like an old pillowcase, with rips for arm- and leg-holes.
