Sporting fans and Harry Potter actors Dan Radcliffe and Tom Felton are currently taking in cricket game right now, watching the match between Australia and England. UPDATE: In a very fun and delightful interview now concluded Dan Radcliffe and Tom Felton both spoke at length about their love of cricket, their friendship and working on the set of Harry Potter, noting they are friends despite the animosity between their characters. Dan confirmed they have just finished a week of night shoots, but did not reveal what scenes they had been filming, and said he has been working on Deathly Hallows since February and would likely continue production until the 'middle of next year.'  When asked about the similarities between cricket and Quidditch, Dan said enthusiastically the rules for both are 'needlessly complex' and said his ideal dream job would be to follow his favorite cricket team around the world into obscure places and talk about the sport he loves. Tom Felton spoke eloquently and passionately of his great love of the sport of cricket, and also joked about his hair color several times Finally, in another hilarious turn, they both gave their thoughts should Hagrid take on the sport of cricket. UPDATE 2: You can now see video of them at the match here thanks to TLC reader Katya, and listen to the interview here at this link courtesy of Lauren and our Order partner DanRadcliffe.com UPDATE 3: Photos can be seen on the BBC flickr here (Dan), here of Tom, and here of both young men, as well as this from twitter.

Thanks Karen, Simon, Katya and all who emailed!

England won the ashes! Hooray… lucky Tom and Dan actually being there today, I’m really envious. Had a great day listening on the radio though, I missed the interview (I was riding my horse) but will listen online later.
