Radcliffe, Watson Talk “Deathly Hallows” Filming Outside Hogwarts, Harry’s Leadership, and More

Yahoo!Movies UK has published a short set report from a recent visit to the “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” set. The article contains quotes from actors Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) on the “road movie” feeling of the latest Potter film, commenting on filming outside the traditional Hogwarts sets. On this subject, Miss Watson notes:

“It was so nice to be outside, in the forest and out of the studio – running about. It was so much fun. Because it’s such an emotional, heavy film, it was nice to get out and do some action stuff. They were very fun scenes to film. Being out of Hogwarts just makes it really different. It just gives the audience a whole different experience. I’m so excited to see it together.”

Mr. Radcliffe agrees, saying, “It might take people a while to adjust to this one… The main thing is we’re not at Hogwarts. It makes a huge difference. It gives the film a totally different feel.” Additionally, the young Harry Potter actor spoke to the changes in his character over the course of the final film, relating that “Harry is like a Roman Emperor in his last days and everyone is turning on him.” He continues:

“Harry is completely paranoid about what Ron and Hermione are saying about him. He thinks they’re doubting his leadership, but while he is asking people that, he himself is doubting his leadership. He has no plan, so he is pretty useless.”

Thanks much to Megan!

Avatar Imagecghambright says: This film will be so amazing!! Dan and Emma are so right, it's a completely different storyline. It will be so surreal to see it play out on-screen since the book just came out. Part one will have so many cool action sequences--7 Potters, the ministry break in, Godric's Hollow, and so many other amazing scenes! I love that they've kept in Harry's paranoia. That's one of the best parts of the book to me, because it keeps you on edge...you don't know what he's going to do next. Avatar Imagewrightrox says: love this article....i am so excited about the movies..........although so sad it has to endAvatar Imageronrules says: It's gonna be great. The worst part will be the wait between now and then, and the wait between the two parts. Oh, and the wait for the DVDs!!!Avatar ImageCatherine says: OMG!!! SOUNDS GREAT!!! i cant wait...no seriously, i really cant! hehe :D!Avatar Imageda_member0808 says: I didn't even think about the fact that there's no Hogwarts...

Anyway, it's always great to read such reports from the set, it will be unusual to see the trio out of Hogwarts but that's the plot)) we'll see enough of Hogwarts in the final battle))))Avatar ImageBoyWithALightningScar says: I'll have that same feeling again I had when reading DH. Being away from Hogwarts, the world seemed a lot more dangerous and unpredictable. The movie's going to be amazing, taking people who haven't read the book by surprise.Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: This film will be so amazing!Avatar Imageleigia says: Ah, more interviews about DH. I'm so looking forward to it.

Avatar Imagekingdomkey1121 says: Still cannot wait to see the finished product! It's going to be epic!!Avatar ImageMaxtina Potter says: comparing Harry to a Roman emperor was really cool! Loved the interview although there was nothing new really... But I'm dying to see the movie!Avatar Imagenellythemarrow says: Oh, I hope that they wont overdo Harry's brooding and uselessness fears.Avatar ImageAvanelleWood says: Great article! Can't wait to see the movies.Avatar Imagehalfbloodprincesss says: close to 300 days left....soooooooooo excitingAvatar Imageharrygetsme says: i didn't even really contemplate that. no hogwarts in the film...it's going to be so different!Avatar ImageErinM says: Huh...no Hogwarts. I mean, we knew that but until you read it, I guess it hasn't seemed real yet. Bitter-sweet information; excited to see DH1 but utterly depressed that the end is so near.Avatar ImageDiamondWings says: oh yeah!!! i want to see how they represent it!! the whole movie!!! =D Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: Seriously... this movie is going to kick some major arse.Avatar Imageda_member0808 says: I didn't even think about the fact that there's no Hogwarts...

HARRY POTTER ROCKS! Twilight who? As it is the last one,it´s gonna be a bit depressing...Ugh! HP will be over! No more books(cried my eyes out) No more movies (NOOOO) I like how Harry gets paranoid about what Ron and Hermione are saying bc it proves how afraid he is of losing his friends.It has nothing to do with leadership,really.His major fear is to be left alone.And when Ron leaves he gets even worse."First Ron and now I´m gonna lose Hermione if I don´t get a move on."It´s such an agony.I love Dh,it´s my favourite book.I am super excited about this movie.Harry and Ginny together,Ron and Hermione!!God! Let the countdown begin!Avatar Imageabandonedboyjon says: the cast is clearly invigorated by having more location shoots and being outside the castle walls. I'm sure it's elevating their performances. Avatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: The Deathly Hallows will be a totally new experience. The movie will have much more action in it and also alot of drama(young adult problems). I can't wait to actually see the part in the Ministry of Magic, Godric Hollows, Wedding, Malfoy Manor and the Battle at Hogwarts. Oh my gosh I just can't wait!!!!Avatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: I really wish the books and the movies didn't have to end! Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: Can't wait! DH is going to be epic!Avatar ImageKami Malfoy says: I'm so excited to see Harry, Ron & Hermione's quest to find the Deathly Hallows. The last two films are going to be full of adventure! It's good that they will show Harry's fear and self-doubt because it shows he's human. His frustration and anger would only be natural, given his circumstances.Avatar Imagehewy says: Not looking forward to the end of the series but can not wait for the movies. Reading about the end is chilling. Life with out Harry is going to be so different and there will be nothing to look forward to. But we can always reread the books and watch the dvds.Avatar Imageaj_ellybean says: I can't wait to see this, but I'm still sad that we're nearing the home stretch with HP movies. Avatar Imageacciohorcrux.hbp says: TICK,TICK,TICK...................the time's ticking away............!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!DH IS CMNG:)))))))))Avatar Imagekatherine102678 says: Sounds exciting...Can't wait for November. Sounds like they are going to portray Harry's part as they did in the book.Avatar ImageNot Slytherin says: Can't wait to see how they do everything. Should be some excellent tension among the trio ... getting excited!Avatar ImageMistic Willow says: WOW it is so great to hear that ALL three of the trio still enjoy the filming of the Movies, and they have all developed into quite extroadinary talented Actors and Actresses throughout the filming of these movies!!!!! I feel the last one being done in two parts will be awesome!!! and that this will give them more opportunity to fit all of the loose ends into it, and everything that is necessary to leave people with a real sense of closure in a good way!!!Avatar Imagemadman1277 says: woot cant waitAvatar ImageLauraKeaton says: Can't wait to see it!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Interesting comments...Avatar ImageToNkS_rip says: hes so right about harry. im sorry, but he so isAvatar Imagerealspace says: A lot of people said that they didn't like all the "camping" scenes in DH, but I just LOVED that stuff. It felt a lot like the French resistance in WWII - having to be very careful with who you can trust and living underground. Hermione is really the anchor in all this. She saves their butts countless times - always loyal to Harry and the goal of finishing off Voldemort. She does this even to the point of choosing the cause over Ron, much to her distress. The whole book is brilliant and I hope they portray that kind of living on the margins feel the book gives. I am very excited about these two movies!Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Great interview!!!Avatar Imagealicia00 says: since thay said that the movie will have a different feel to it -- it will be different watching someting '' different "Avatar ImageFifi says: So excited for the last 2 movies but a bit sad too. I hope we will always have something to look forward to. :)Avatar ImageWendelin the Weird says: Great article! I’m so excited for this movie!Avatar ImageJTEL99 says: These last two movies sound like they are going to be the best of the series! I can't wait to see them! :DAvatar ImageHBPFan says: Dan's description of Harry being paranoid about everything and everyone in the DH book is so accurate. :D Avatar ImageLittle Deatheater says: Sounds like it will be great!Avatar ImageBoyWithALightningScar says: I'm looking forward to seeing Harry being all paranoid.Avatar Imageforgetmenot_007 says: Movie's gonna be great! Can't wait to watch it!!! :-DAvatar Imagesgarime1 says: Man I can't wait for this movie! It's going to be awesome! Avatar Imagejacket says: I am so excited for the film and can't wait to see all the beautiful scenery!Avatar ImageBara says: It will be interesting to see DH Pt 1 this year & see how everything fits together from the previous films until now. It will also be nice to see a change of scenery & see the effect it has on the performance of the actors. It has me quite excited to see some more DH trailers. :DAvatar Imagewandmastercalum says: This film will be amazing!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageLulaL says: It will be interesting to see how they make Deathly Hallow into two moviesAvatar ImageHogwartsPrincess says: I CANNOT wait any longer!!! I wish it could come out now!!!!!!!!!!! :)Avatar ImageZephyrFool says: Well, I think anybody who actuallyread the book will be aware of the change of location. ;-) It was what made the book really different from the 6 before.Avatar ImageKami Malfoy says: We need an updated poll question, maybe about which scene we're most looking forward to seeing in Deathly Hallows?Avatar ImageAll Was Well says: I've got to be honest: I'm seriously scared about Deathly Hallows. I REALLY don't trust David Yates, and I don't particularly like the tone he seems to be setting...Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: What an intriguing interview! I must thank Daniel and Emma for only fanning the flames of my eagerness for this movie to be released.Avatar Imageminishiva says: Can't wait for the movie.
