Dan Radcliffe Interviewed at Movie-Con III (Updated with Images)

Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) was interviewed at Movie-Con III, where he discussed, among other topics, finishing filming "Deathly Hallows":

Are you done?
“Yes, we finished. I promised myself it wouldn’t end on green screen but inevitably it did. The last shot was us jumping through the screen onto a mat.
Were you in bits?
“Not then but afterwards. I’ve never seen Rupert Grint cry before; it was weird. It was like seeing your Dad cry. But now we’re on to new things and I’m looking forward to the future. I’m very excited about The Woman In Black. I think James (Watkins) is great; he’s going to be the next Chris Nolan I think.”

In addition Radcliffe talks about his experience of watching the earlier Harry Potter movies:
Have you watched the films on DVD?
“I do, but I rarely watch them. I have two friends – just two! – and one wants me to play the Lego Harry potter game with him, and the other wants me to give him an uncensored commentary with them sometime."
So a Potter-thon?
“No! I do get really embarrassed watching the early one. I was talking to Emma on set once on set and saying how bad we were, and we were on mike, and suddenly I heard Mike Newell [director of "Goblet of Fire"] shout, “You got it because you were both BLOODY ADORABLE”.

Radcliffe also goes on to talk about what role he would want to play if Harry Potter were remade 30 or 50 years from now, the experience of filming "Deathly Hallows," and the helpful direction of David Yates, who has been the director of the Harry Potter movies since "Order of the Phoenix."

In addition, there was a clip shown at Movie-Con III, and a description of the clip is at the end of the interview:

Then we saw an action-packed bit of footage, with a few fresh snippets that weren’t in the trailer: six of Harry’s friends turning into Polyjuice Potion doppelgangers to get him safely out of the Dursley’s home; the attack on Fleur and Bill’s wedding reception; Harry and Ron fighting in the tent when they’re on the run and Voldemort heading up a council of Death Eaters at Malfoy Manor. And then lots and lots of intense action, including an extended look at the run through the woods with Death Eaters in close pursuit. OMG it totally looks awesome.

As of now there is no video of this clip online. You can read the rest of the article here.

Actually, I thought he would have said Snape as the role in a remake…we know that is actually the juicier bit, and would be a huge break from the Harry image…..

Bloody adorable is right !! Oh cripes, these kids were sooo cute and now they are all so handsome and beautiful ! It has been so wonderful watching them grow…sniff

I wish them all luck and success in their future endeavors. I was watching " Driving Lessons " with Rupert Grint and Julie Walters last week and I just laughed and laughed. They work SO well together , I hope they do another film soon.

  • sigh ** I really do not want to see this all end.
