Today, Ireland will see a premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, with actress Evanna Lynch and actor Matt Lewis due to attend the event. As such, TV3 in Ireland has broadcast a teaser of their behind the scenes special on the making of HBP, which includes new comments from Michael Gambon on the Irish accent he uses for Dumbledore, filming on the gorgeous coastline of Ireland for the cave scene and more. You can now watch a lengthy preview of the show at this link UPDATE: Video is also now available here in our galleries.

Thanks so much Orla!

I wonder if anyone recorded it and put the entire thing online if it aired yesterday.Avatar Imagelavender_07 says: ^^ I recorded it but can't get it off the dvd for some reason :/ As far as I know it's not online yetAvatar ImageMizWiz says: This was a brilliant preview on yesterday, much better than the Sky's preview which was on Saturday. Fantastic interviews and a fabulous look at Fred and George's new shop.Avatar Imagesianletley says: coolAvatar ImageAurora_7 says: lavender_07 Oh wells, you had good intentions! :D Maybe some technical whiz-kid will give you some pointers... unfortunately that wouldn't be me lol. I know just enough about computers to get by :)Avatar ImagePallargast says: I only remembered it was on about 5 minutes before it finished.Avatar ImageAccioCloak says: Hadn't realised the cliffs in the trailer were actually the Cliffs of Moher!!Avatar ImageMattiekTLC says: I just returned from a 3 week trip to Ireland for school - and got to see the Cliffs of Moher! At the time, I didn't know that the Cliffs were the definite location shot for the cave (since Melissa had said on PotterCast that it looked like someplace in Hawaii). But after I saw the Cliffs in person, I knew straight away that this *had* to be the location - and it was great to see confirmation of that in this video. I also found it funny to hear Gambon's Dublin accent - after spending 3 weeks traveling through all the provinces in Ireland, and hearing the different accents, he was right on with the "sort of Trinity" accent - lol!Avatar Imagedanaskeeter says: Interesting, I didn't realise that Dumbledore's accent was Irish. Being from the southern U.S., I'm not very good at distinguishing those accents--unless they're the southern drawl.Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: I hope it gets posted...Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: Most of the interview clips from that I saw yesterday. It was interesting too.Avatar ImageCeltise says: gambon has an awful irish accent...ive lived in multiple places in ireland including dublin.Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: NOOOOOOOOOO!!!! i may not be able 2 see HBP tomorrow now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
