I’d be most excited to see Daniel Radcliffe.He has grown so much during these 10 years and hes always so funny! You can also really tell that he loves what he does.And after all he is our Harry Potter!

I would be most excited to meet Evanna Lynch. When I read the books, Luna was just a character, but Evanna Lynch did an amazing job in the movies and brought her to life for me. Also she accomplished her goal of becoming Luna even though her parents encouraged her not to at first. She pushed through until the end and has done a completely amazing job. Also I think she and I would have a lot to talk about because she has been an extreme Harry Potter fan since she was very young just like me!

Personally I would be most excited to meet Alan Rickman. I am still amazed by his portrayl of Snape and everytime he comes onto the screen, even for only a moment, I get shivers down my spine. How he centers himself to play such a complex character astounds me. Also I would love to see him be himself, not a character. I’m sure Alan is a lovely person and to see him not act like Snape would be an unforgettable experience.

@vojteckyam, @warmblanket, I love your comments on Alan Rickman and Snape. If I lived in the US, I would certainly be crafting an entry along those lines…..

I’m most excited to see Emma Watson. I love fashion and she always wears the most beautiful pieces.It would be a dream come true to see her and her outfit in person!

I would be most excited to see Alan Rickman. Throughout the films, he has done a fantastic job of portraying one of the most complicated literary characters of all time. From the first film, the depth of Snape’s character resonated through the screen and really connected with viewers. He plays the part so convincingly, and I think non-readers will be completely blown away after this last film.

I would be most excited in seeing Alan Rickman, of course. He plays my favorite character and this is the film where we see the big reveal. I would love to see how he handles the questions about Snape now that we’re coming to the end of the series. I think he will keep the spoilers under wraps but you never know!

Rupert Grint or Alan Rickman. I know that’s 2 but I would be super stoked to meet either of those 2. They are my favorites for sure. Rupert just seems so sweet and cool ..I mean he owns his own ice cream truck for goodness sake! Alan is just amazing.

Hey Leaky! I would be most excited to see Gary Oldman at the rep carpet premiere. I absolutely love the entire cast but Gary Oldman’s potrayal of Sirius Black has always held a special place in my heart. I feel like he completly understood the character and played him perfectly. Of course, it woudn’t bother me to see any other member of the cast too!

I’m most excited to see Alan Rickman at the US premiere! He’s done a top-notch job portraying the anti-hero of the series. And his other works speak volumes of his talent and his ability to play a spectrum of characters.

Alan Rickman, for sure, because he doesn’t attend premieres usually and doesn’t make many comments. Now he has no excuse really with the last film being released. And he’s such a terrific actor!

it would have to be alan rickman. the man can set you on edge by a simple glance or the mere inflection of a word. he is an amazing actor!
