The Press Association has some new quotes from Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) in which the actor confirms that the Harry Potter cast are unaware of where the split will come between the last two films in the Harry Potter series.

“We don’t know where the cut’s going to be,” says Felton, “[e]veryone keeps asking us ‘where is the cut?’ but they’ve shot it kind of all as one and I think they’re going to wait and see whatever feels right.”

The actor talks of the cast’s relief at finding out that there would be two films for the seventh book, which Felton describes as “the most important chapter of the whole story.”

Lastly, Felton also comments on the way it feels to leave Draco Malfoy behind:

I kind of use him as therapy in a way. I get to build up these angers and frustrations and then vent it through this evil little Hitler child. Without it I may have to go to therapy – maybe it’s time to vent that way!

Avatar ImageHinkypunkmum says: Oh my, all of this is so sad. It feels just like it did when Deathly Hallows came out and we knew there would not be any more books. Avatar Imagemew5645 says: wow it is coming so fast ... cant waitAvatar Imagekimmybabii says: I'm getting chocked up its so sad that it is finished. But Harry Potter will never end LONG LIVE HARRY POTTER!!!! xoxo <3 xxxxAvatar ImageTheRealSlytherinHeir says: Its so sad that its finally coming to a close! HP will never end! Avatar ImageThe Stew says: As Harry is being pulled up from the frigid water ,unknowingly, by Ron. All of a sudden, a seemingly doomed Potter is violently jerked to the surface by an unknown force. Friend or foe?! Dum dum duuuuum!Avatar ImageIloveDobby says: Hmm I am really curious where the split will be now.Avatar Imageiris lily says: unknown split...... i'm going to cry, i can feel it evil hitler child... heheheheAvatar ImageFresca says: Somehow I don't think Tom Felton will need therapy! He always comes across as pretty grounded. i suspect he could use golf now to vent his feelings on. That is one game that can be a BIG challenge! Avatar ImageJoeWorthy says: I always thought it was going to be split after the trio are captured by the snatchers, putting Malfoy Manor in Part II. I think the best place would actually be when Dobby comes and rescues them and they split in mid-apparition. This would mean we get to see Bellatrix, Dobby and Ollivander in Part I! YESS!! However, it would mean we wouldn't see Wormtail in Part II which I would be quite sad about. Or, the trio could arrive at Malfoy Manor; Bellatrix touches her Dark Mark; we see Voldemort and he laughs; we tarvel into his eye and see the trio and the Deathly Hallows symbol; cut! I think any time before this wouldn't give us enough time for the rest of the book and the Battle of Hogwarts. Just a couple of ideas.Avatar ImageJoeWorthy says: I always thought it was going to be split after the trio are captured by the snatchers, putting Malfoy Manor in Part II.

But it is sad. Harry Potter ending...TO some people that is. Avatar ImageOddRavenclaw222 says: I heard it will split just before Malfoy Manor.Avatar ImageChreechree says: Evil little Hitler child. Not that Hitler is in any way funny, but I find it amusing he described Draco that way. Well, he was obsessed with blood (racial) purity and all that, but I think I'd liken Draco instead to a Hitler youth as he wasn't the supreme evil in that whole operation. Avatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: evil hitler child sums it upAvatar Imagebleedblackwax says: So sad, yet so exciting. =( I've been wondering where the cut will be as well, hopefully it won't be an action packed scene. I don't wanna be left with a huge anxious cliffhanger :PAvatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I am curious as to where they will decide to separate the two films. That said, I am intrigued as to the logic they will use to justify the choice as well.Avatar ImageScarStruck says: Hitler child.LOL.*luffes Tom to death* Gotta love him.I hope they do this right, personally I have very strong doubts after OOTP and HBP but I'll try and be positive for DH.Avatar ImagePollytomat says: Oooooh! He knows how to make us smile! :)Avatar Imagetaoist1 says: Who cares where they decide to split the movies, just get them to us sooner.Avatar Imagecaralina100 says: i think it should stop at a point in the middle where people really want to know more so they can leave it a bit vague and people are still wondering. when movies end like that i just want to make sure i see the next movie right away when it comes oput Avatar Imagevicki_the_house_elf says: I've got no idea where the split should be, if they follow on from the previous films and end on a happy point then it would probably be when Ron comes back. But if they want some tension and suspense then it would probably end when the snatchers turn up or when Ron leaves, either way i don't mind where the put the split as long as they include Molly's EPIC line and the house elves charging from the kitchens to fight in the name of Harry Potter, if both of those stay in i'll be very happy indeed. :)Avatar ImageRoseann says: I think it is going to split when doby dies. That would be a great place. We can anticipate the rest of the movie and talk about how we think the rest will pan out during that awful wait of the second part. I am so said to see this all end even though I think jo should cont. in a couple of years with the next generation of hogwart students. You never know maybe one of the good guys children follows voldys lead that would be a good twist oh well we will see.Avatar Imagejacket says: I can't wait to see where the split is!Avatar ImageFresca says: I hope they split it after the escape from Malfoy Manor. To close with Dobby's funeral would be fitting.Avatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: Well Tom and the cast may not know where the split is but I do know they have decided on it. A recent interview of David Heyman with MuggleCast confirmed that he knows where the split is but he wouldn't say what it was. All he said is that it's going to be good! :) As for Tom, I love him! I love how he calls Draco as a little Hitler child. :PAvatar ImageAbbyWeasley says: why??? they are doing most of the work acting!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Where is the split???Avatar ImageTheThirdBrother says: The "END" hasn't hit me yet. Maybe after I see the two movies it will. Personally, I hope it ends during Xeno's house. The last line of the first movie being "Are you referring to the Deathly Hallows?" This would make everyone want to find out (for those who don't know) what the Hallows are, and will come back next Summer.Avatar Imagegryffindor234 says: The cut I think will be when Harry and Ron fight and Ron leaves because i saw an interesting article at mugglenet.com saying that's when the split will take placeAvatar ImageSmitch says: Yeah, IChreechree, I think that`s what he meant...just didn`t come out the best. I wonder where they`ll cut?! I wonder how they do that after they shoot the films as a whole. I'm assuming they have additional pieces to add onto a piece that was not originally meant as a semi-finale? Or, will DH I just end abruptly...sending us all into a frenzy? I guess we'll have to wait and see...Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: I'm not surprised really.. there is so much attention around the actors/resses that they probably wouldn't risk it.. But then again.. they must have a clue from the way it was filmed :)Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: Love the Draco/Hitler thing :P With Draco being a little Facist, he sure is hot ;) And I'm worried about my History teacher :L He thought Hitler was seeeeexy.. Umm :SAvatar ImageLily_Phoenix says: We all know the split is going to be right around the Snatchers capturing them. And LOL @ the "Hitler child" comment. Tom Felton, you are amazing.Avatar ImageMoose_Starr says: Without wanting to get OT here, I'm kind of concerned about Beazy's comment that their history teacher thinks Hitler is sexy? Gah ... Avatar ImageGryffindor Cutie says: I don't know, I find it hard to believe that none of the actors know where the movies are going to be split. Rumor had it that the split was going to be a Malfoy Manor. I guess we'll have to wait and see.Avatar ImageLeper says: Oh wow. So no one knows. That's actually quite exciting.Avatar ImageAlli says: I kinda want it to end like POTC2 ended, because it was sooo funny to hear everyone's reactions after we just saw Barbosa come back and that's it! haha that would definitely make people want to come back. but it might also make a lot of people annoyed so i don't know...Avatar Imagehewy says: Tom is so adorable and does great interviews. The Hitler child remark was on target for Draco but we must remember Draco was a product of his fathers influence. As for the split, don't really care as long as we get the two movies soon!!!!Avatar ImageI love my Spectra Specs says: " evil little Hitler child" haha XD Not that Hitler is funny...I just find it funny that he described Malfoy that way.Avatar Imagejhangelgurl says: Gosh not even the cast! knows where it's going to split ha. Avatar Imagewhyalltheglitter says: Okay, calling Draco an 'Evil little Hitler child' seriously made me crack up. I think that is really weird that they dont know, and they were the ones who did the movie! I bet the split will be when they are about to be taken by the snatchers. I bet they will end it with a dramatic line and then they will slowly have the picture fade and end it there. I hope they dont have: TO BE CONTINUED. That would completely ruin it.Avatar ImageProf Thicky says: The best place for the split - I think ? - would be when they set the Gringotts dragon free, and they are resting on the bank of the lake - Harry suddenly sees Voldy at the gates and says " HE's at Hogwarts !!! " CUT !!! There will then be the stuff happening at Hogsmeade - then Neville/ the Room of Requirement and the Battle at Hogwarts - plenty for the very last movie ! It seems the right place to cut - the first film with Harry hiding and looking for Horcruxes, the second set at Hogwarts / Hogsmeade as Harry et al finish the job !
