The first of many images and reports from the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix film premiere in London today are beginning to come online. TLC was in attendance at the premiere and will have our full report and pictures from the event online shortly. In the meantime, Reuters has one of the first articles online from the red carpet which includes reactions from a few of the thousands of fans who attended the premiere and features a number of quotes from the actors. Fans were “super excited” to see the actors arrivals, Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) said of the fans reaction:

“Every time I come to a premier. I see more and more fans. It gets bigger and bigger,” she said, while adding of her character: “She’s kind of changing, becoming more of a rebel. but it’s kind of fun to play.”

Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) also discussed the film saying, in part:

“Toward the end of the film… there’s not many laughs to be had,” he admitted, while insisting that there were some lighter moments. “While there’s not actually direct comedy, there’s some really heartfelt emotion. “There’s goodness in it,” he said.

Getty has the first images from the premiere which can be seen here. They feature the arrivals of many cast members of OotP including: Dan Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Katie Leung, Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Bonnie Wright, Evanna Lynch, Matthew Lewis, Imelda Staunton, Harry Melling and J. K. Rowling. Photos from the OotP after party can also be seen here.

In addition, the BBC has a gallery of pictures online from the event that showcases the actors, fans and Death Eaters!

The Daily Mail also has a write up of the arrivals along with a few photos of Dan Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint arriving (in the rain) at the premiere.

Channel Five in the UK also has the a video report from the event, which shows the fans along the red carpet and even features a brief appearance by our own Melissa Anelli and Sue Upton. You can view the short video report here in our video galleries.

Updates: BBC News has published a further article on the premiere that includes a few new quotes from J. K. Rowling as well as a short video interview with Dan Radcliffe on the red carpet. We have now created a OotP London Premiere Photo Album in our Image Galleries which will be continually updated as new pictures come in. More images can be seen via WireImage as well.

A third BBC report is in our video galleries thanks to roonwit. A reporter for the Entertainment 24 program spoke with author J. K. Rowling, Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid), Richard Griffiths (Uncle Vernon) and Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) on the red (green) carpet.

More interviews and photos are sure to be online soon. Be sure to check back to Leaky for our own reports and photos live from the event!

Sue! I want your shirt! Those are great. I can’t wait to hear their review of the premiere.

Avatar Image says:

YAY!!!! for Melissa & Sue on Channel 5 News. Hope you have a great time in London – we all wish we could be there with you.

Avatar Image says:

I love how on Jo’s photo they put “JK Rowling and Unidentified guest” Her husband must be like “HEY, what the heck?” How could they NOT know thats her husband? The people that captioned those pics were morons.

Avatar Image says:

I love what they’re all wearing. Emma looks gorgeous, but she always does. Dan and Rupert look oh-so handsome. Bonnie has great colors on, but I wish she would wear something more fitted. Her hair looks beautifully sleek. But, the dress’s cut really doesn’t flatter her. Katie looks lovely, but her hair is reminiscent of what she had at the last London premiere.

I think my favorite dress has to be Evanna’s! It’s so bright, nicely fitted, and really brings out her lovely eyes. She looks wonderful!

JKR looks beautiful and elegant as always!

Avatar Image says:

Aww look at sue and melissa!! im glad i saw the whole thing online!! (:

Avatar Image says:

We can’t wait to read YOUR review of the film, Melissa, Sue and John!

Avatar Image says:

I can’t wait to read YOUR review, Melissa, Sue and John!

Avatar Image says:

Did all the fans actually get into the premier and see the movie?

Avatar Image says:

No, the fans outside the cinema are just there to see the stars, and get autographs if they are lucky. They don’t get to see the film.

Avatar Image says:

Love the pics (have only been through geddy so far). Emma looks really good… tan or something, but honestly, someone needs to teach her to stand. Not just her, Katie looks a little awkward too. Bonnie looks nice… she’s getting very mature looking, which is good, because I couldnt imagine the Harry and Ginny of movie 4, having the big kiss scene in movie 6. LOL! Love the way Rupert dresses: casual but dressy: t-shirt with a jacket. Dan always looks classy. Cant wait to see more pics, and the video with Melissa and Sue!

Avatar Image says:

OMG, I wish I was there. The reporter didn’t seem to know what she was talking about because the square is decorated as the ministry of magic and Melissa ana Sue are some of THE BIGGEST fans out there,how does she not know…im glad they got on TV tho. I can’t wait for the U.S. premire!

Avatar Image says:

I want your shirt Sue! :D

I can’t wait to see the interviews you guys did, they’re always the funnest to watch! :D

Avatar Image says:

Emma and Katie’s dresses were SIMPLY GORGEOUS! I thought they both looked VERY GLAMOROUS!

Dan looked GREAT, but once again Rupert had the grunge look. Someone needs to convince Rupert that he should DRESS UP at least some of the time. Come on Rupert…that look is just TIRED!

I saw the red carpet interview with Matt Lewis. He was GREAT AS ALWAYS. Matt, I LOVE YOU MADLY!

Avatar Image says:

With the umbrella I can’t help but think that Dan looks a bit like Gene Kelly. Every one else looks great, but I especially love Evanna’s dress. Also does Rupert ever dress up. I like the lok but I don’t think I’ve seen him in a proper suit and tie.

Avatar Image says:

Evanna’s adorable! LOVE her hair, plus her dress. All the girls looked great actually. But- where was Tom Felton? I saw him on the live webcast signing autographs but he seemed M.I.A. throughout the whole premiere. Did anyone even speak to him?

Avatar Image says:

Nooooooo! Where’s the rest of the cast, the grown-up one?! Michael Gambon, Dame maggie Smith, Alan Rickman, Gary Oldman, Jason Isaacs, Ralph Fiennes… Am I the only one disapointed?

Avatar Image says:

Yea, Melissa & Sue!! Can’t wait to hear your report!!!

Avatar Image says:

True that as well! I was looking forward to seeing Maggie Smith- she’s awesome. And Jason Isaacs, he’s too funny.

Avatar Image says:

Your not the only one lou. It was a poor adult cast turn out really. Robbie, Imelda and Brendan were there, I didn’t see anyone else from the current cast. I guess they’ll be at the US one.

Avatar Image says:

Did you see the necklace Evanna is wearing? It’s her moon and rabbit necklace. So cool!!!

Avatar Image says:

Hagrid (Coletrane) and Umbridge(Staunton) were interviewed on Skye TV

Avatar Image says:

They all looked great, especially Emma and Katie. Emma is certainly doing much better picking out her clothes, that dress is gorgeous. I want it!

I actually think Rupert looks pretty good. Sometimes his grunge look is awful, but here it’s not so bad. I actually think Dan looks a little too dressed up for his age. Though he looks very handsome.

Does anyone know if the PC trio are going to be able to watch the film again like with GOF? I would love to hear them give a review, I usually agree with their interpretation of the movies.

Avatar Image says:

I dont care what that reporter says, those are the two biggest HP fans right there!

Avatar Image says:

A.Rickman WAS there, just for a brief moment you can see him and his guest (girlfriend), but his was there!

Avatar Image says:

God they talk as if its a little known website! I seen this today when i was flickin through channels couldn’t believe Melissa and Sue were on Five News

Avatar Image says:

No July, you aren’t the only one disappointed. I hope they are at the L.A., or else, that would just suck!

Avatar Image says:

EDIT: I meant lou! XD

Avatar Image says:

Harry Melling shud get some grunge dressing tips from Rupert :-)

Avatar Image says:

I’m so excited for everyone. Evanna, Bonnie, and Matt Lewis look great! I can’t wait until more photos are released of the rest of the cast. Also, does that now make Pottercast international news? Awesome!

Avatar Image says:

Yay! Melissa and Sue! that must have been so much fun! Can’t wait to see the movie!

Avatar Image says:

Wow! I can’t believe you guys were on Channel 5! I shall try and watch,see if its repeated later.Everyone looks lovely in the photos,espeically the girls!

Avatar Image says:

Ok I’m just confused. I keep seeing articles about Rowling killing off 2 characters. But didn’t she really say she way killing off two she didn’t originally plan on killing- meaining she could kill far more than 2.

Avatar Image says:

Rumour had it earlier that BBC News 24 were showing the JKR interview at the premier at 9.30. Only 15 min to go.

Avatar Image says:

Kendra, yeah thats my feeling too. She said it like it was two more died so there could be a lot more!

Avatar Image says:

aww. Poor Evanna! Her dress was all wet on the bottom. Personally I think the dress was a bit TOO formal. Everyone else was wearing knee length dressed. Evanna was the only one in a floor length dress. Her make up looked really nice. She’s sooo completely opposite from the rest of the cast. I love it. And she has a nose ring!! DUDE! That’s pretty cool. lol. i kinda want one. my sister just got one.

Emma…. gosh. could they take any more pictures of her?! Like half of them were of her!! And it was funny…. the top half of her was nicely tanned but her legs were as white as could be. lol. Wasn’t a huge fan of the dress. The straps looked awkward. i didn’t like front thing and the dangly gold thing just soooo wasn’t my taste. but I liked the color! haha. and her shoes! OMG! I want!! haha. And I’m not a huge fan of her hair… Brown is better for her than Blonde…

Katie looked really good. I loved her hair and her dress… Granted I personally never would have worn it… too shiny. lol.

Poor Jo! She looked like she was having some trouble keeping her dress together in the chest area… hahaha. oh well. She avoided a ‘wardrobe malfunction’ so yay! lol. She had a new haircut! I love it! She’s so pretty!

Bonnie… oh Bonnie… Why doesn’t she wear more fitting clothes? She’s so cute. I’m really not a fan of this potato bag of a dress. And no offense to any one that likes her bangs her has there hair like that but Gosh! I HATE bangs like that… but that’s just my personal taste. certainly didn’t mean to offend anyone.

Helena Bonham Carter… I know she’s extravagant and different and all and that’s really cool! But her hair looked like a rats nest…

Matt Lewis had a giiirl with hiM! oooOOooooOOOh! hahahaha.

And again… I’m really annoyed at how many pics there are of Emma… Seriously… there were other people there…. The photog was obviously someone too in love with her… ugh. is annoyed

Avatar Image says:

Heather, PLEASE tell me the girl with Matt Lewis is a sister, cousin, or something! LOL.

Avatar Image says:

BBC News 24 just advertised they’re doing a piece on the premier after the weather :-) Yipeeee

Avatar Image says:

KB Prez – they were holding hands and looking cute…...I doubt it was his sister :-) Sorry :-)

Avatar Image says:

Maggie smith was there, there’s a pic on Wireimage i think. Also there were a ton of other pics from one of the earlier promos where Emma’s wearing a white top? Hadn’t seen some of those pics so some people might not have seen them.

Avatar Image says:

Heather, thank you. :-)Sniffle.

Avatar Image says:

Sorry Wingardium…I should have thanked you for the sad news. :)Not Happy:)

Avatar Image says:

So cool to see David Tennant and John Simm there after last week’s Doctor Who!

Avatar Image says:

Emma looks beatiful face down. What the hell is that horrible fake tan in her face for? It’s so unnatural.

Avatar Image says:

Does Alan Rickman ever attend these premieres” I never see any photos of them. Katie is so gorgeous. WOW. And, of course, Dan is sheer perfection. What was Bonnie thinking with all that eye make-up? Has she been hanging around Helena Bonham Carter too much? Also, where were Draco and Luscious??

Avatar Image says:

KB Prez, sorry but Matt seems to have a girlfriend- they were definitely holding hands at least!

LoonyMoony21, lol, in one pic Dan does look like he’s dancing to ‘singing in the rain’! I really like that pic.

Evanna and Dan were my favourites. Evanna’s dress was beautiful and I love Dan in pinstripes. Katie looked really classy too. Rupert looked, well.. casual, but fine and relaxed. Helena looked great- like Bellatrix but taking a leaf out of Umbridge’s book!

Sorry, they looked good but I’m afraid I didn’t like either Emma’s or Bonnie’s dresses at all.

Adult cast I saw Imelda, Richard G, Robbie, Helena, Warwick, David Bradley. Apparently Alan and Brendan were there too.

I only caught sight of JKR via her husband!

Avatar Image says:

were is the rest of the cast

this list is not a full list

Ralph Fiennes Natalia Tena Brendan Gleeson George Harris Gary Oldman Mark Williams David Thewlis Maggie Smith Julie Walters James Phelps Oliver Phelps Jason Isaacs Michael Gambon Jamie Waylett Josh Herdman Devon Murray Emma Thompson Alan Rickman Alfie Enoch Afshan Azad Alec Hopkins Robbie Jarvis James Walters James Utechin Charles Hughes young Lily sorry forgot her name

Avatar Image says:

Saw Brendan on the live footage alright, he’s the only one I saw being interviewed. Looked like he was having a good time…and he does giggle just like the trio said on the GOF extras :-)

Avatar Image says:

Mark Williams and Robert Hardy were there too- pics on wireimage.

Avatar Image says:

got back from the premiere about 2 hours ago, it was fantastic, the atmosphere was amazing, all the fans (including me) were screaming for the stars and chanting their names. its my first premiere i’ve been to and im definetly going to the next one the rain definetly didnt put me off at all, neither did it put anyone else off it was so packed with fans and some had been waiting since 6am!

Avatar Image says:

Where is Alan Rickman???!?

The Phelps twins look HOT

Avatar Image says:

Nikki….am so jealous :-)

Avatar Image says:

Good quote from Jo on the “hackers”: http://www.skynews.com.au/story.asp?id=177342

“Meantime, author JK Rowling has weighed in on those claims that a hacker had accessed the ending of the final novel, saying: ‘Believe nothing. If I start confirming and denying it gets complicated but no-one should be too worried about secrets being given away.’”

Avatar Image says:

JO ROWLING WAVED AT ME :D

Avatar Image says:

The lady interviewer from the BBC is completely misinformed. In her interview with Rupert she asked him about Japanese fans as if he just came back from the premiere there, when we know that only Dan went. She also said, get this, that they’ve already finished shooting the sixth movie! I wish! LMAO!

Avatar Image says:

Natalia Tena (Tonks) was there too. There is a pic of her on Getty Images and get this she was in hufflepuff colors!!! lol perfect and actually her hair cut here is more the length I always pictured Tonk hmmmm

Avatar Image says:

Evanna has the best dress, hands down. No pretentious so-called fashionable bon-bon schnickschnack… Evanna, I love you already.

Avatar Image says:

Is it just me or were there no pictures of David Yates and David Heyman? Quite odd for the director and producer not to be there.

Avatar Image says:

Jenny thanks for that quote!

Actually in the online broadcast I saw Alan Rickman and Jason Isaacs were there, but it was just a moment, really quickly while they were walking to enter the cinema. Same happened with David Heyman.

I love how Dan and Katie look, and I can not believe I cannot find pics of them together! Jo looks stunning, I love her new haircut!

Avatar Image says:

I love Emma’s fashion taste. Bonnie’s was ok but she really looked like Ginny in some of those pics. Evanna looked so cute…and Dan’s getting more handsome every time you see him. yeah Alan Rickman was missing :( but he did attend last year’s premiere I think.

Avatar Image says:

I just read a blog from a girl who was there and she had a great time. She said the photog’s went nuts over her when they saw how good she looked. Emma wasn’t really tanned though, it was the lighting. When she was in the natural light she looked normal. Katie looked good too. I didn’t like anything about Bonnie..face,dress,hair, nothing worked.

Avatar Image says:

Cutest pic of all, Dan placing Emma’s strap right:

http://cache.gettyimages.com/xc/74996071.jpg?v=1&c=NewsMaker&k=2&d=17A4AD9FDB9CF193FE27433493C03A1094110D148928D61E

(delete spaces)

I clarify I’m a Harry&Ginny shipper! I just think those 2 (Dan and Emma) would be the cutest couple ever. :D

Claire, the woman who was interviewing all the actors, she interviewed Yates too. :)

Avatar Image says:

Watched the video. Loved the dude (probably an industry guy) who said that OOTP was the best one yet and had the best special effects of a summer blockbuster he’d ever seen. Yay! It’s good to hear those things from someone who is impartial.

Melissa and Sue! You guys looked great!

Guys, I din’t think they were lucky enough to see it this time. They would have told us. (Remember when Melissa told John and Sue they were going to GOF? I do. It was the first episode of PotterCast I ever listened to).

Avatar Image says:

Claire H I think I did see David Heyman but so many of the men were difficult to spot.

btw you can see an interview with Rupert if you go to Dan’s BBC interview there’s a link from there. It’s wierd. The interviewer asked him two stupid questions- one about whether he enjoyed the Japan premiere and one about them having just finished filming the sixth and was he looking forward to doing the seventh! The funniest thing was though he didn’t bother to put her right on either but answered the questions anyway!

Avatar Image says:

What the heck? Isn’t 75,000 pounds of damage to the Hogwarts Express worth taking it out of someone’s hide?


From the article…

“Also on Monday, 13 young vandals were given official warnings for causing 75,000 pounds (150,000 dollars, 110,000 euros) worth of damage to the train depot housing the Hogwarts Express in the films.

The tearaways, aged 12 to 17, smashed more than 230 windows on the famous train at the depot in Carnforth, northwest England.”

Avatar Image says:

I think they should be made to pay for the damage.

Avatar Image says:

Thanks for the pic. I don’t know if Dan was fixing her strap or feeling the stones. Oh who’s kidding who, he just wanted to touch her.

Avatar Image says:

David Yates as there, he was interviewed on the live webcast…

And for those wondering, Melissa, John et al saw the movie at a press screening in LA last week… so yes they’ve already seen it.

Avatar Image says:

I don’t know Solo, but what it is clear is he is a very intelligent boy! in many ways! xD I have to take note of these things to use them in my life too! :)

Amy S, did they talk about it in the lastest pottercasts? I haven’t had the time to listen them yet!

Avatar Image says:

I wonder if Melissa got to talk to Jo on the carpet? Jo is really aware of Melissa and her work on Leaky (as the current diary shows) so she could have been “Hi Melissa. Nice editorial on spoilers. Listen why don’t you and your friend come on in and have a look at this film if your friend here will stop making that strange high pitched sound.

Avatar Image says:

I do wish there were more pictures of Lynch instead of Watson. But it’s great that the guy who played Crouch Jr showed up—he looks just like my old algebra teacher! It’s freaky.

Wow, I never realized that Lynch was the Irish seeker… awesome coincidence!

Avatar Image says:

hahaha. David Tennant is sooo gorgeous. oh man. i love him! hahaha.

btw… is anyone else having trouble with their name and email? EVERY TIME I click ‘yes’ for remember name and email. And it never sticks….

Avatar Image says:

Dan looks absolutely FANTASTIC Emma…hmmm…Not so keen about the dress…Love the shoes though Rupert…FINALLY he got rid of those bragged jeans…now the only thing he needs to do is to get those hands OUT of the pockets Katie…Just…wow..that young lady looks stunning Evanna…I just loooooooove her dress…very simple Bonnie…stunning as allways…BUT her dress makes it looks likes she´s pregnant

Avatar Image says:

Thanks for relaying all the info for us that couldn’t be there! I am jealous! It’s been 6 months already… I’ve got to depart the States for a bit.

Avatar Image says:

Nice to see Time Burton there along with HBC.

Avatar Image says:

WOW!!! Melissa and Sue representing TLC at the Premier! How cool is that?

Evanna looked great for her first big movie event. Dan and Emma – very classy, but I’m so disappointed in Rupert. I mean, the T-shirt maybe (maybe), but did you see his shoes! Merlin’s Beard, it’s the European Premier! Dress for the occasion!

Avatar Image says:

Patrick – no they haven’t talked about it on pottercast, but John’s girlfriend mentioned it on myspace. I think they aren’t allowed to release their opinions/review until July 11th though.

Avatar Image says:

I LOVE Evanna’s dress it was by far my fav…Emma’s wasn’t the best but her hair was great. Dan looked wonderful as always. Katie’s dress wasn’t the best either. Matt looks SO grown up! Bonnie’s hair is sooo long but her dress was very shapeless. Rupert was cool and casual as always…I love his style. I wish there had been a pic of the 7 of them together. That would have been the best. Still loved them though!!! :D

JK Rowling was BEAUTIFUL…Her dress was great. Her hair is so short now!

Avatar Image says:

Evanna looks great!!!

Avatar Image says:

I just got back from the premiere, I feel dead.

Jo smiled at me ♥ I died.

Avatar Image says:

Folks….danradcliffe.co.uk has loads of videos, including the main interview with Dan. Enjoy

Avatar Image says:

Aww its so cute, in the Youtube video Dan is totally star struck by some guy and asks for his autograph, apparently he’s a cricketer or something but it was very cool to see him be so normal :-)

OMG SUE AND MESSLIA ON SKY NEWS-FREE ADVERTISING FOR POTTERCAST!! YAY!!! HOW WICKED I SO NEVER EXPECTED TO SEE YOU LADIES!! HOPE YOUR HAVING A WICKED TIME-GLAD TO SEE BRITISH WEATHR HASNT PUT YOU OFF!!

Avatar Image says:

The BBC reporter told me there’d be a segment online at www.bbc.co.uk/movies, I’m not sure when it’ll be online though!

Also- Emma really was fake tanned.

Melissa and Sue, why do I always miss you!? I saw John though woo XD

Avatar Image says:

I love Jo’s dress. I wonder if that is the same “pale gold” that Fleur will dress her bridesmaids in.

Evanna shouldn’t have chosen a long gown, this is not the Oscars (or a prom).

Avatar Image says:

Heather….the reason there are so many pictues of Emma is that she just happens to be one of the 4 or 5 most beautiful girls on the planet. Of course people want to take lots of pictures of her.

Avatar Image says:

Violet- Evanna looked really nice!!

Avatar Image says:

WOW!!!! If ya missed it….check out the premier on http://cosmos.bcst.yahoo.com/up/player/popup/?rn=1095451&ch=3197750&src=ukyvideo Seems to be replaying the whole thing

Avatar Image says:

Hello There Melissa& Sue, Have a great time in London!! I wish I was there with you all. I can’t wait till the movie and the book comes out. Counting down the days. well take care and have fun! Donna

Avatar Image says:

Matthew Lewis sure has grown up nicely!!!! Wow! He is adorabely cute!

Avatar Image says:

Matt Lewis looked so diferent, but in a great way ;). One of the Phelps twins looked different to me as well I saw him signing autographs on the webcam and I didnt recognize him til they interviewed them! Im still sad I havent seen any interviews with my boy T.Fel yet, I love that kid.

Avatar Image says:

Horray! The Doctor and The Master were there!!! ;)

Avatar Image says:

The premiere was amazing, and I got several autographs. The best moment of the night when Jo signed my book-I nearly died of happiness. I also got Rupert’s, Emma’s, Evanna’s and a few others. =D

Avatar Image says:

Thank you Wingardium! I watched the end of the live broadcasting but I missed the beginning and those interviews, so it’s great to see them. Dan is sooo nice, he was the last one to leave the place, he stayed signing autographs and taking pics with the fans. If there is someone tired it must be him because he spend all last week promoting the movie in Japan. So really, he is very nice. Jo is so beautiful, I wish she would have given some clues about the last book!

Avatar Image says:

I love the pic of the DEs! XD

Avatar Image says:

They all look amazing! Evanna and all the girls look brilliant… I’m not 100% sure that i liked Emma’s tan, it looks a little funny…doesn’t siut her….properly… But i loved what they were all wearing and they all looked like they were having so much fun!!!

Avatar Image says:

JO POPPED OUT A BIT ON SKY NEWS…you definitly could see a bit more than one might have hoped to see! lol watch it carefully if you see the video! Its when she is interviewed after Imelda! She looked fabulous though-loved the new hair!

Avatar Image says:

HBP CASTING SPECULATION:

Jim Broadbent & Clive Owen were in attendance.

Don’t want to speculate toooo much, but I recall Imelda Staunton attending the GOF premiere as well as David Thewlis attending the COS premiere… they were likely cast for the films before the preceding movie was released.

I dunno… I heard a lot of ppl saying that Broadbent would be a perfect Slughorn or even Scrimegour. What do you guys think?

Avatar Image says:

rofl. That was a really cute interview with Imelda and Jo! I Loved it!! ...kinda sad yet funny the way the interviewer switched really quickly from Imelda to Jo. It was like OMG JO! SCREW YOU! hahaha. but I guess we all would’ve done the same… i mean… come on. it’s JO!

Avatar Image says:

Everyone looked great! I loved Jo’s dress and Evanna and Bonnie were amazing. Melissa and Sue are so lucky.

Is it just me or has it been rainy for all the London premieres of the HP movies? I just can always remember seeing umbrellas and gray skies in the pictures and videos of the different premieres. Just an observation.

Love from, Jenny Wildcat

Avatar Image says:

Lol, I noticed that too, it always seems everyones carrying an umbrella at every London premiere. But having been to London, what they say is true- wait 5 minutes for the weather to change. I think it’s kinda cool tho. Totally would have wanted to been waiting in the pouring rain today, no lie. Thats gotta be an awesome experience! Every NY premiere I went to was too hot, wether it was November or May =/. But again- totally worth it =].

Avatar Image says:

Go Melissa and Sue! Please tell us your opinion about the movie!! I also like to say hello to my fellow Brazilians who attended the premiere!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Claire H, I agree with you. Jim Broadbent would make a great Slughorn! I’ve seen him in Moulin Rouge and more recently in Longford. He’s another in a VERY LONG line of wonderful British actors!

I would also like to see Yates find roles for Clive Owen and Bill Nighy. Nighy is WONDERFUL and Owen is not only a very good actor, but also VERY, VERY SEXY! :-)blush

Oh, and one more Mr. Yates…how about finding something for the person I think is the best actor/actress on the planet – Judi Dench!!!!!!

Avatar Image says:

Ok If Clive Owen stars in any of the next 2 HP movies, I think I’ll just die of happiness!

Avatar Image says:

ME TOO Ponette! :-)Very Big Smile.

Avatar Image says:

wow, I’m watching the newest BBC video and I remember seeing Emma saying that on the live-webcast earlier, I recognized it…weird.

Avatar Image says:

I second that Ponette!

And that is very true, Claire H! I hope that happens with these two!

Avatar Image says:

So exciting about Melissa and Sue!!!!

I love looking at premiere pictures. I kept gasping at different dresses and outfits… right now my favorite, though, probably has to be Evanna Lynch. That, and I nearly had a heart attack when I saw Matt Lewis. He’s always been cute as a button, but now he’s downright handsome. Whoa!

Avatar Image says:

J K Rowling…

Intelligent… wonderful sense of humour… caring… absolute stunner… and rich! As close as you can get to the perfect woman!!!

Avatar Image says:

Just want to add my voice to the chorus: ahhh, Clive Owen is so, so attractive. :)

Meliss’ and Sue were great, too!

Avatar Image says:

Great photos and yea! for Melissa and Sue. I would have to agree that I like Evanna’s dress the best. Well I love Katie’s, Emma’s and JK’s too but they have the body for their dresses. I also liked seeing two of the boys actually had dates (Matthew and Devon). Oh our kids are going up. Sigh!

helena carter,tim burton:),dan radcliffe,emma watson,imelda staunton,alan rickman and bonnie look perfect.especially helena carter very cute and funny.dan and emma look very happy.

I soh in a site, a new teaser, who heve very new scene of Harry Potter and the Ordem of Phoenix. The site is: http://www.harrypotterabout.com/hpa/

Avatar Image says:

They really all do look simply stunning! I loved seeing Jo – she really is a beautiful and eloquent speaker.

Avatar Image says:

I’m sure someone else must’ve noticed…Evanna was wearing Ravenclaw blue! I bet it was intentional.

Avatar Image says:

I was there. Got footage on my camcorder of all the stars as they came down the steps. Got 6 autographs INCLUDING Jo Rowling’s, Alfie Enoch (Dean), Emma Watson, Bonnie Wright, Tom Felton, and Shefali Choudry (Parvati).

EVERYONE looked gorgeous, especially Emma who came down the steps clinging to her father and looking more nervous than I’ve seen her look before.

A lot of the girls were screaming for Emma’s brother Alex (who is turning into a fine young man btw), especially once he went out onto the balcony of the theatre. He and Emma’s mum waved back at the fans that kept calling for them. They also screamed for Rupert’s brother James but he mostly ignored everyone.

So there I was happily listening to the news on Channel 5 last night when 2 familiar faces pop up on the screen. ‘Oh’ I said to my husband, ‘thats Sue and Melissa!’ He looked at me blankly (he’s not a Potterfan) ‘who?’ and was even more confused when my identification was confirmed by the TV caption.

You are part of my personal Potter universe and I was seeing my friends on the TV so I gave you a big squweeeee as I would for anyone whose company I enjoy (almost on a daily basis at the moment its fab!)

Oh man, they’re all so freakin’ HOT. I would give my right arm to Matthew Lewis if he wanted it, he’s too adorable. Evanna? Smokin’. Emma is one of the most appealing personality-wise of the actors. I also lurve hoew humble Dan Radcliffe is.

If I have one complaint, it is how little we heard from Jo. They didn’t interview her enough. Of course, I am selfish and wouldn’t be satisfied if she answered questions constantly until the DH release. She looked so beautiful though (as always).

:o) ,

Sue.

P.S. Sue and Melissa are my favorite. Sue and Melissa

Melissa and Sue were on Today in Australia too! Though that may have been just the Channel 5 or BBC footage.

I loved Emma, Katie and Evanna’s dresses! They all looked great! And Matthew Lewis looked so different! Him, Dan and Rupert looked so CUTE! =D In the pictures on GettyImages they showed Natalie Tena and Maggie Smith. I watched the whole premiere and i never saw those two actresses arrive!

OMG am i the only one to think that matthew lewis look damn hot? he is so changed, i mean perhaps i was just used to his nerdy look from the films and that’s why i was so impressed when i saw him. dan looked good too, a little too elegant in my opinion, but ok.emma’s dress was beautiful but they could get her legs tanned too not only her face ‘cause it looked really fake. i was really dissaponted in bonnie…the dress was soooo bad, it made her look pregnant, the makeup was too strong and the hair do doesnt make her look any better.sorry but i expected something way better from her:(

I spotted this Times article. Many of the same quotes, but contains a comment by Dan about girls. http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol/arts_and_entertainment/film/article2023008.ece

The movies are horrible – cheap porn. The books’ series is magnificent – historic masterpiece. Only a true Harry Potter admirer knows so. I prefare the longer hair on Jo. I wouldn’t even care if she was bald, as long as her head remains safe and whole to put together the inspiring stories. Ms. Rowling, don’t give up the writing… ever.

Avatar Image says:

Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! I saw Melissa and Sue on Channel 5 news! I was sitting there happily minding my own business watching the news and the premier came on. Suddenly I saw melissa and sue and I went CRAZY! My boyfriend wondered what the hell I was on! hehe

Love you guys x x

ITV.com have a video report on the premiere, I’m in it woo XD You can just see my camera as Jo goes by…

Avatar Image says:

OMG David Tennant was there! Geez I love him!

Avatar Image says:

Looking at the pictures… there’s one that says “JK Rowling is God”... Don’t let Laura Mallory see that! On second thought… maybe we SHOULD!! :-D

Avatar Image says:

Teehee I saw that sign when I was there XD

If anyone sees any videos of Dave Berry can you post them here please =P He was presenting but I don’t know for who!

Avatar Image says:

funn, to see how far Matthew Lewis has grown from the pudgy little boy he was in the first movei, how tall has that guy grown? One who looks better in real life then behind make is surpricenly Harry Melling, I think he lost weight in stead of gaining it.

And poor Tom, he seems really lost in acne-ville.

Another surprice is that Rupert Grint, in spite of playing a tall gangly Weasly is not much taller then the well known shorty Radcliffe

Avatar Image says:

For once I think Bonnie is clothed better than Emma, I HATE Emmas dress. All the girls seem to be overdoing it with makeup seemingly moreso than usual (they are older I guess). :-( I do hate this silly society of “you have to wear tons of eyeliner to look nice”.

its odd how emma and ruprit have their hands in their packet in all the pictures.

Avatar Image says:

it`s so weird that I see the pictures, and I watched it live on the harrypotter uk site! :D it was great! =]

Avatar Image says:

I think this is the first time I’ve seen a picture of Matthew Lewis since the promo earlier with him in the DA and I must say, WOW! OMG! He looks like a MAN! And he’s hot! I didn’t realize he is so tall. And he lost weight. I mean, look at him! He grew up a lot. I fell off my chair in shock.

Avatar Image says:

I can’t believe how awful Bonnie looked. What was she thinking, that hair, face and that dress she was wearing. It seems the fashion people liked Katie and Emma the best. I really don’t like Emma much but I think she gets best dressed award. Very classy. But Bonnie. ugh. Some people just don’t age well.

Avatar Image says:

I’m surprised so few people have mentioned that Shefali looks absolutely gorgeous. And I was deeply disturbed to discover that I’m attracted to Neville Longbottom… er… Matt Lewis. He’s a sharp-looking young man.

I tend to agree with those who think Bonnie is a lovely girl with questionable taste. But please flip through your old high school yearbooks before criticizing her too harshly.

Light-hearted piece in the London Lite tonight [disclaimer- a free dodgy newspaper handed out at stations].

First a piece about the post premiere pary “the cast let their hair down by dancing until 2am at a boozy bash at… Old Billingshurst in the City… The pals [Dan, Emma, Rupert] shunned the roped-off VIP area to hit the dancefloor while fans looked on. They then headed straight to the chocolate fountains. Radcliffe later held court at a cocktail-laden table, where he was surrounded by female admirers while Watson posed for photos.”

Later in ‘the buzz’ section of the same paper a funny (and probably wildly exaggerated!) piece about Dan and girls… [I’ve seen a number of newspapers quoting Dan’s attraction to a redhead in the crowd but this one went a bit further]... “The HP star shocked fans at the premiere… by admitting he had taken a fancy to several waiting fans and even one of his co-stars. “I’m looking forward to signing a couple of autographs in particular… There’s a redhead over there I can’t wait to meet”. It seems Radcliffe has a penchant for redheads as he admitted he had a crush on co-star Bonnie Wright… “I’m looking forward to the romance scenes which happen in book six, particularly as Bonnie looks absolutely stunning”... And his on-screen love interest Katie Leung… cemented Daniel’s lovegod status. “He’s an amazing kisser”... Daniel certainly had a bevy of admirers at the film’s official after party… He was surrounded by gorgeous girls as he sampled the chocolate fountain. “Daniel had the pickof any girl in the room”, an onlooker tells us. “The party was full of fans of the movie, and most girls were keen to meet him”. Despite his lothario status, Daniel left the party alone at 1.30am after hugging co-star Emma Watson, who dazzled guests in a Chanel frock.”

Maggie Smith’s grandson is in my maths class and he got to go to the premier D= how unfair is that! at least take me with him next time…

Can we get some more pictures (and better ones at that) of Shefali Chowdhury?

The asian girls seem to be pwning everyone else __

New review in Telegraph see ‘news’ on the Potter page. A muted one, but at least she knows the book and is complimentary about the Trio. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/arts/main.jhtml?xml=/arts/exclusions/potter/nosplit/potter.xml

Naaaah.

Very expensive fan fiction.

Kaleigh, you have to look for Tom Felton. He was wearing a lovely single-breasted brownish jacket that matched his hair and what looked like a whitish/pink shirt and a light pink (dot-textured)silk tie. This brought out the roses in his cheeks and lips that are there naturally. This is typical of his “not-having-to-try-so-hard”, understated, elegant taste in formal wear. The whole thing contrasted beautifully with his eyes and they tied it all together; Exquisite. One picture Is enough.

Kamion, It’s quite hard to manage one’s face when one commutes for hours, helps with a family business, takes care of loved ones, and is working one’s behind off. I find Tom’s sense of fun and professionalism inspirational and I am glad he made the effort. “Walk a mile in someone else’s shoes” before you pass your infallible judgement. Funny how petty, negative, criticisms do nothing to dim his bright spirit.
