Dan Radcliffe on Filming Snape's Memory Scenes for "Deathly Hallows"

Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) has given a new interview to MTV News which took place as he took MTV on a tour of Hogwarts Castle at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter. Reminiscing about filming "Chamber of Secrets" as Radcliffe and MTV looked around Dumbledore's office, the actor also spoke briefly about filming the "Deathly Hallows" scene in which Snape's memories are revealed to Harry:

"One of the key scenes in the series happens in this room, where towards the end of ['Deathly Hallows'], Harry learns something about Snape's past in relation to him, and that takes place in this room. In fact, actually, it takes place pretty much here," he said, motioning to where he was standing. "And that is kind of pretty much possibly the key scene in the series, you might say. There's a certain argument for that."
Radcliffe talks about the real life stars of the talking portraits in the gallery ("many of the crew, and also his father") and the possibility of revisiting Hogwarts with children of his own in the full article, which you can find at this link.

This is such an important and beautiful scene in DH. I sure hope that they get it right and, dont cut Snape’s lines. The whole Prince’s Tale chapter is incredibly beautiful and moving, as well as being essential to the entire plotline. It is going to be real difficult to watch this scene though …

I think Brianna says it all quite well! But they will possibly screw it up some how! After what they’ve done so far they can not be trusted. Sorry but that’s my opinion. Still can not wait to see the movies!!!!!

I don’t doubt that this will be a well-done scene, though I am hoping for good young actors for Snape, Lily, and even people like Petunia. Glad to know that Dan understands the importance of this scene.

I can’t take it any longer!! Another 100 odd days left!!! That’s too longggg :( But at least we know they didn’t skip out Snape’s moment! Oh jeez, I bet I’ll be bawling during DH. Too many sad parts. Still can’t wait, though!!

Is anyone else wondering why the scene with Snape’s memories is taking place in Dumbledore’s office??? Shouldn’t it be in the Shrieking Shack?

I am very happy to read that radcliffe considers Snape’s memories “one of the pivotal scenes” of the series. I really hope they do them justice. It isn’t a matter of length really, it is a matter of depth and how well they are carried out. I have got full confidence in Rickman and Radcliffe, but I am afraid my confidence in Yates and Kloves isn’t running high …

Guess That Book

The hottest day of the summer so far was drawing to a close and a drowsy silence lay over the large, square houses of Privet Drive... The only person left outdoors was a teenage boy who was lying flat on his back in a flower bed outside number four.
