We’re having a wizard time

The Trio talks to Telegraph reporter John Hiscock about fame, fortune, and fan mail:
Daniel, who had previously played David Copperfield in the BBC television series, already talks with the self-assurance of a veteran actor. Thoughtful and articulate – he is currently reading Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude – he is clearly the leader of the trio, both on-screen and off, although 12-year-old Emma has firm opinions of her own. A star hockey player at school, she is hoping to win an art scholarship.
Rupert, at 14, is the oldest of the three and, like Daniel, he insists that little has changed – although he has taken up golf, he says he still devotes a lot of his spare time to his PlayStation2 video games. “All my friends have been really normal, but some of the teachers suck up a bit,” he says with a grin.
