UPDATE: Here it is in glorious High Res, thanks to WB.

December kicks off in fine style as USA Today has the first official photo from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (or right here in our image galleries.) Readers will recall this scene was shot in London, England last April as you can see right here from this location photo. The USA Today article has several new quotes from actor Rupert Grint, who speaks about Ron Weasley, Harry Potter (Dan Radcliffe) and Hermione (Emma Watson) during the course of the films:

“They’re paranoid,” says Grint. “It’s quite a
scary world because the Snatchers and Death Eaters are running around
everywhere. Harry, Ron and Hermione are just camping out in random
places, living rough, in regular clothes.” Snatchers and Death Eaters
are minions of the evil Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes).

Grint adds, grinning: “Me and Dan actually have
some stubble.” His facial hair served as a kind of invisibility cloak
for the lanky, redheaded Grint, who went unrecognized by fans recently
while on location in the Welsh countryside. Dubbed a “road movie” by
producer David Heyman, Hallows was envisioned by director David Yates as more grounded in reality than the previous Potter movies.”

In addition, the BBC has new interviews with the cast including Dan Radcliffe and Bonnie Wright (Ginny), who address life after the Harry Potter series has concluded. You can also watch a nice long interview with Dan Radcliffe and Rupert Grint right here, (or available here in our galleries) plus see the interview with Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) with the BBC here at this link (or here in our video galleries). Producer David Heyman also weighs in on their future:

David Heyman, who has produced all of the Harry Potter films, is
confident that the global stars that he’s helped create will go on to
further success.”They’ve had a good structure here and at home, they are pretty solid kids,” he says. “They are going to go and have great fun – they are going to have great success. I’m sure they will thrive.”

He adds: “I think they all know I’m here to support them, and if they ever want a chat I’ll be there for them. “Ultimately they’ve got to leave the fold and take flight – and I know they will.”
