In an article that has focuses on how they have grown and changed through the years,the actors talk about things that are changing for them now in real life, and in the films. Romance is to be a key ingredient in the upcoming Goblet of Fire film

“Harry is growing up and discovering girls and becoming a teenager,” he says. “He’s also coming to terms with a lot of demons he is being forced to face. He’s a lot more vulnerable in this film.” Ron looks on jealously at the budding romance. He has his eyes on Hermione – but she falls for a handsome international Quidditch star.

“He finds it really hard to get a date and he has some embarrassing situations when he asks girls out,” says Rupert. “He’s also really miserable because he’s jealous of Hermione.” Emma smiles: “Hermione is totally swept off her feet and that’s nice. She doesn’t know what’s happening to her.”

Actor Tom Felton also is interviewed, and he mentions the increasing nastiness to his character Draco Malfoy, noting “The older he gets the more threatening and dangerous he becomes,” he says. “He’s a physical threat rather than being an annoyance.”

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire will be released in theatres November 18th.
