Jul 03, 2007
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.
