Harry Potter Mania at Paste Magazine

Thanks so much to Tim from Paste Magazine for emailing about a huge Harry Potter feature they have today celebrating the release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. While there are many fun tidbits to be found including features on Quidditch, Brad Neely's Wizard People film, Potter courses in universities, quiz, book poll, loads of Wizard Rock, and fun playlists for each of the Hogwarts Houses.
Also of note are two new interviews, one with actor Dan Radcliffe, and this with Emma Watson who publicly states she is going to attend Brown University this fall, and speaks again on her admiration for J.K. Rowling:



Paste: You’ve got very close to J.K. Rowling.
Watson: And to Helena Bonham Carter, as well. I look up to both of those women as mentors in their own fields. It’s nice to talk to—and to listen to—an older woman who has gone through what you’re going through, and to get their opinion. And it is always opinion. They never dish out big clunks of advice.

 Paste: Ever kept a souvenir from the set?
Watson: Never. Everything is accounted for and everything has to remain in place—unless it finds its way into an exhibition. You can’t walk off with anything. They’d be furious if you did!

So, Brown, then? Well, in her video interviews she wanted to keep it private? And now she says it? And didn´t she say Liberal Arts on Letterman? Now it is Literature? Why do some of the answers sound like I´ve read them before?

But then again – maybe she has changed her mind … again. :)

“Chris Columbus, who directed the first Potter film, just turned the sound off on the set, and we dubbed our lines in later. That way, he could give us direct instructions on what to do, and where the special effects were to come in.”

I had no idea. And i was also unaware of Dan’s poetry book. Pretty interesting interviews

This is pretty awesome! I took the quiz and it was easy except for the question about Voldemort’s wand. I missed that one.

I think Emma is the only one who doesn’t have a souvenir. She’s too much like Hermione. lol. She doesn’t have anything because it’s against the rules.

Well, I still have my doubts:
“Watson: I am—to Brown, which is an Ivy League establishment in the U.S.A. I’ve got a place there to read literature.”
On Letterman she said Liberal Arts! That´s not exactly the same, is it? And I´ve spend the week listening to Emma audio and video, that´s not exactly the way she speaks.

But then again – I could be wrong …

@Fonty: Liberal arts includes Literature and art. It’s part of the degree.

That Poll is like torture! It’s so hard to pick one book. I love them all.

I chose Deathly Hallows though.

Got all the questions right but one..couldn’t remember until after I answered what Umbridge’s patronus was. Boy was I dumb on that one. All the books are my favorites but I chose Hallows since it answered all the questions that arose.

Sorry, the interviews still seem strange to me. But I am going to see HBP in 20 and a half hours, so I might be crazy. Still within a day she went from keeping it private to talk about it in some obscure magazine …

I got Hufflepuff, what a surprise! Not really… I don’t really like the Hufflelist. Ravenlist and Slytherlist are quite better. I mean, just because someone is a Hufflepuff it’s not all trees and flowers please! I have to listen to those songs though.
