Interview Roundup: Wright, Grint and Felton


Jul 15, 2009

Posted by SueTLC

We have a few quick interviews to update you on tonight. First actor Rupert Grint is the subject of two new interviews: here with, and video of his guest appearance on the CBS Morning Show.

Next, thanks to who let us know about a nice video interview with actress Bonnie Wright who discusses filming the attack on the Burrow, and notes her favorite part of Hogwarts castle is the Gryffindor common room.

Finally, the Hero Complex Blog in the LA Times has another installment in their Harry Potter series, this being an interview with Tom Felton.

DM: What do you remember about shooting that climactic scene on the Astronomy Tower? TF: It was intense! When we shot it I was surrounded by the cream of British actors [Alan Rickman and Helena Bonham Carter
were present, as was the Dublin-born Gambon], and the scene itself is
very intense. There’s lots of shouting, screaming and tears. We had
good fun with that one. It was the scene I was most looking forward to.

DM: What was working with Gambon like? TF: I was obviously very scared about having a
one-on-one scene with him. But early on we met up and we got on really
well. He’s a character beyond character, anyone will tell you that.
He’s got more stories than an encyclopedia and he’s a wealth of
knowledge and comedy. It’s just a joy to be around him. Every time
there was a break, I would take it as a good opportunity to have a cup
of tea with him, asking questions and stuff like that.

DM: His Dumbledore is a lot more intense than in the books, isn’t he?TF: Yeah, I was slightly afraid that he was going
to be cold or stone-faced. But he’s far from it. Honestly, he’s like an
18-year-old and he loves it.

Devotees of canon will be outraged... Film buffs will be surprised by how good it really is...Avatar ImageH.P.2009 says: i Saw it!!! It Was very good. It did stray away from the book, however i think this one did it justice. it is a movie so they do have to cut different things, everyone should hurry up and go see it. Avatar ImagePhylis says: The movie is fantastic! Saw it at 12:30 am! *grin* Avatar Imageharrmione55 says: I've seen today (just got home @ 10:45pm) OMG there are 3 theater/auditorium that was showing the HPHBP and it was FULL the ambiance was full of exitement. Viewers, clapped at the start and end of the movie, lot's of laughing, though (comedic part). But, me, quite frustrated. I wish to see the part when the students battled with the DE and Harry gave Felix Felicis to Hermione, Ginny and Ron. It covered mostly of the teenage angst and hormones. Happy to see the movie after the long wait but not so satisffied.Avatar Imageplacebowiz says: niceAvatar Imageplacebowiz says: coolAvatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: awesome. im seeing HBP tomorrow. ill be going to either the 12:30 or 1:30 showings.Avatar Imagececmal says: Tonight's the night... a little worried, but I hope it's a great film.Avatar Imageangelvoice says: OOO, I just love it.Avatar Imageofchughes says: deathly hollows in two parts... mixed emos... hbp was goodAvatar Imagehanname says: Haven't seen enough Rupert interviews yet....Avatar ImageNot Slytherin says: Love ya, Tom Felton! Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: awesum! i hav 2 wait until the weekend........ :(Avatar ImageDrome says: I'm going to watch it today! <3Avatar ImageSirEdwardsGuardian says: Well, I saw it yesterday. I, for one, would have liked to have seen more of Draco's turmoil. Also, I don't want to spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet, so I am holding back. It was good and bad; good because of the 'filming and visual effects'; the plot lacked somewhat...Avatar ImageAliyah95 says: AAAHHH!!! Must- watch- movie!!! At least I only have a few hours until the movie theatre opens...Avatar Imagephoenix_girl93 says: going to see it on saturday! i cant wait! this is going to be the best movie in the series, so far anyway! GO SLYTHERIN!!!!!Avatar ImageEchoLynnetteB says: I saw one of the Midnight showings in Chandler Arizona... It was unbeleivable! The crowd was huge... (Sold out of course) People went all out and dressed up... we sat in the theater room for three hours, (one hour outside before that) and everyone was talking about it, or reading one of the books, tossing around a huge beach ball lol (which was taken away from us lol), texting online via cell phones and blackberries... It was amazeing. But NOTHING compares to the movie itself... I laughed a lot, cried a bit too... but mostly I was in awe. By far the BEST of the 6 movies so far! *does a little dance* Plus, my fiance and I are going to see it atleast 2-3 more times lol. CAN'T WAIT!!!Avatar Imageweasleygirl101 says: I saw it too ! Strayed from canon a good bit but it was A-MAZ-ING!!!!!!!!!!! Tom Felton was by far the best in it !!!!! Really funny too.Avatar Imagedanaskeeter says: Loved the interviews! Bonnie seems so nice.Avatar ImageHGROSS44 says: great interview way to go Rupert.Avatar ImageMooChild says: Haha, I always enjoy Felton's interviews because he seems the complete opposite of Draco and it's always hilarious to see the contrast so vividly!Avatar ImageJTEL99 says: I thought this was Tom Felton's best movie performance of the series! :-DAvatar Imagehermyone08 says: good for tom, glad he was given an opportunity to showcase his acting abilities
