“‘Everyone was really devastated. It was really, really sad,’ Radcliffe
said Sunday. ‘[We] were crying quite a lot.’ …When asked how it felt to end his role as the boy wizard, Radcliffe
said, ‘It’s a weird, weird feeling.’”

Avatar ImageGraymayne says: Oh dear! I'm sitting here with a lump in my throat and filling eyes. Sniff.Avatar Imageforgetmenot_007 says: We understand,Dan...it's really devastating. Still,nothing's ending! Harry Potter will live forever!!!Avatar Imagepotterforpresident says: It's the end of an era.Avatar ImageHufflepuffCheerLeader says: Im soooo sad :(... THANK HARRY i have The wizarding world to look forward to :DAvatar ImageDawna says: very sad...Avatar ImageDlcohm7 says: I knew they would feel this way.of course. I just hope they filmed it all! How great will it be to see them say 'cut' then gather around, hug and cry.Such an important moment.I could tell at the Tony's he had a sort of 'lost' look about him.Avatar ImageLillylove says: I'm sure it is very difficult for the core actors especially. The HP movies have been such a dominating part of their lives. They have shared something very, very special that they will likely never have again in their lifetimes. Avatar Imagespiritbound says: Oh no :( Hopefully the series will go out on a great high, the last two films are going to be insanely good :DAvatar ImageIwishIwas@Hogwarts says: It has to be so surreal, I know its surreal to me to think that once DH 1 and 2 are out there is nothing more to look forward to from that wonderful magical world we were able to escape to in our minds. Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: I am sure there was a lot of crying! I am going to cry now! :(Avatar ImagePhoenix1946 says: It doesn't have to end quite yet, there are still to movies worth of material in the book OotP and at least another movie in unused stuff from HBP. Hey WB, wanna make an additional $3B from Harry Potter? There are at least 3 movies still in the books!Avatar ImageGwynogs_rabbit says: Oh my gosh, poor actors and crew! Wow.Avatar ImageCristalShandaLear says: Whatever I may feel about them dividing up book 7 into two films, words cannot express the emotion I felt at seeing the words "wrapping up the shooting of Deathly Hallows". Wow. Talk about the end of an era. It seems, however much I grow up, there are all these little endings of the end of my extended childhood I borrowed for a while. To have participated in this fandom has been incredible. Avatar Imagejhangelgurl says: @Dlcohm7: I did too notice that "lost" look at his face. It was great to see him. It's still sad that it is an end of an era. =(Avatar ImageLeper says: *sigh* It's rather sad to see it all finally wrap up.Avatar ImageMoose_Starr says: It must be so weird and sad for all of the cast and crew. It feels weird and sad for me but, they have lived and breathed HP pretty much every day for a huge part of their lives. I can not believe that it's really over, I keep thinking that something will come along to save us ... Beedle : The Movie. Yeah I can just see it now ...Avatar Imagejedisakora says: He's not going to be the only one crying. I have a feeling a period of mouing is going to follow the release of the last part. Avatar ImageTotal-Eclipse014 says: That's really sad! It didn't really hit me that they'd finished until I read this, now it really does feel like the end of an era. Luckily we have the deathly hallows (part 1 &2), the wizarding world and looking around the set to look forward to! :)Avatar ImageNess95 says: they really cried.... yeah i'll cry tooAvatar Imageagentzac says: I am sooo glad the trio actors stayed with it until the end. It's sad now, but think of all the memories they will be able to share with their own children and grandchildren when they are old enough to discover Harry Potter. Amazing....Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: It has been a fun, wonderful ride. I consider myself quite fortunate to have lived through it all.Avatar Imagepeaceforall says: It's unbelieveable. I mean, they're actually finished. I'm tearing up over here..Avatar ImageeiVega says: AWWWWWW...... :'(Avatar ImageHPNAIV says: ;(Avatar ImageHinkypunkmum says: Wow - " cut, print, check the gate ". To hear those words being uttered for the final time.... Wow. So sad. I remember how sad Pter Jackson was to finish LOTR and kept making Elijah Wood retake the last scene over and over ; ( the scene of Frodo at BagEnd and finishing the Red Book , " there's room for a little more ..) Many many tears were shed after that. I can only imagine the tears shed after the final take on what was sure to be the longest, happiest ride in fimmaking history. And we all got to be a part of it. My tears join theirs.Avatar ImageMatea says: OMG: I can imagine everyone crying. I'm tearing up right now!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageMistic Willow says: WOW I am sure that it was very hard to say goodbye to fellow actors when you have worked together as long as this has taken to produce and finish all the films/Movies from all of J.K. Rowlings books based on the Life of Harry Potter!! I am also sure that all of them will remain good friends and keep in tough with each other. As for the rest of us we will always have our books and Movies to refer to and pass them on to our future generations to come!!! I really enjoyed seeing Dan at the Tony Awards last night!!! and I SAY HARRY POTTER WILL LIVE FOREVER!!!

It must be so hard for everyone involved in the films. Especially the kids because they grew up doing it.Avatar ImagePollytomat says: SO SAAAAAAAAAAAAAAD!Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: As with him, I am distraught to hear that the franchise is approaching it's end and cannot imagine the emotional toll the cast is experiencing as it says farewell.Avatar ImageJulietBlack says: no!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageRoseann says: It is like saying good bye to a friend you have had for so long right. I will miss the excitement of a new HP book, the excitment of a new HP movie, and of course my wicked HP release parties. We will miss you all very much.

WAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :'''(Avatar Imagemargareth_6teengal says: it's sad to face this kind of things... although there's still the two other movies, yet it feels like we're nearing the end and i hate it... i just hope that after a few years, harry potter would still be with us... and i really miss the excitement of having sleepless nights because i was anticipating what would be in the next harry potter book to be released... and the movies too.... nothing beats harry potter although there are other magical books coming in the stores.... not even vampires and werewolves could beat harry potter.... Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: Aaaah no!!! My eyes are filling up with tears... STOOOOOP IT!!!! Great, now my nose is running :L Not literally though, seeing a nose on legs would be pretty funny :P **Phew** I didn't cry :) **HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGS** to the cast :') :')Avatar ImageTonks1 says: This brings tears to my eyes. My Son (27) who has watch me throughout the years of Harry Potter and even accompanied me to several events when I could not go unless he did so, asked me the other day and I "what are you going to do now that Harry Potter is all over" I, did not have an answer that I could have given him without bursting into tears. I just told him that I have two movies left and that even if I had to go by myself I would visit The Wizarding World of Harry Potter next year. I am crying now!!!!!!!Avatar Imagehewy says: It really is sad that it is all over. Come 2011 after the last film that's when the reality of not having any more movies to look forward to will really kick in. It was bad enough after the last book was released! This must be like breaking up a real family, soooooo sad!Avatar ImageGryffindor Cutie says: I can't believe it. It's hard to believe we are coming to the end of an era. Thank you to all the actors who devoted so much of their lives to bring the world of Harry Potter to life. I wish them all the best in their futures. I am so proud to call myself a Potterholic.Avatar ImageCatherine says: i just cant believe it...and im feeling like crying as well!Avatar Imagewhyalltheglitter says: Thats sad. I really cant believe its ended. I cant imagine how devestated the actors are.. Avatar ImageNot Slytherin says: Oh, Dan! Give us a hug. :o( We can cry together.Avatar ImageLittle Light says: HARRY POTTER WILL LIVE FOREVER!!!
