Dan Radcliffe Discusses Last Days of Filming

As readers may recall, filming for “Deathly Hallows” wrapped last week and since then a few of the Harry Potter actors have been discussing their feelings about the film series coming to a close. A new article details Daniel Radcliffe’s (Harry Potter) feelings about completing the movies, as well as having been connected to the Harry Potter franchise for nearly ten years:

“I … we … were very emotional. I’m not a particularly overly
emotional kind of person. And so, I didn’t really expect it to be … to
cry … as much as I did. But I was absolutely devastated at the
moment, because I just thought, ˜Well, what am I gonna do now?’ You
know? I don’t know what my day-to-day life is without Harry Potter’
Radcliffe said. “I’ve got to sort of find that out.”

In the meantime, he hopes to have a reminder of his Potter days. “I’m
going back (to the ˜Potter’ set) for two ” literally two ” days, and
I’m going to get the glasses. Gotta get the glasses’ he said of the
iconic specs Harry wore during his days at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft
and Wizardry.

Radcliffe is certain to have a long acting future before him. But
will that future include a day where he ceases to wake up without a
little bit of Harry Potter inside?

“No. Not at all’ he said. “Every opportunity I get from now until
the rest of my life is derived from the fact that when I was 10 years
old, I got cast as Harry Potter. And I will be forever grateful and very
proud to be associated with it.”

Its like waking up the day after you graduate high school and realize that part of your life is over forever. We love you Dan! You brough Harry Potter to life brilliantly and we thank you for that. Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: He is so awesome!!Avatar ImageLove is the greatest magic says: Oh I hope he does get to keep the glasses. It's nice when an actor has been in a role for a long time and gets a keepsake. Just like when David Tennant got to keep the 10th Doctor's sonic screwdriver. Avatar Imageelf_ville says: Oh. It's over. * sigh *........ This is the end of an era we won't forget!Avatar Imagefloridianhp says: awww he cried. hes so sweet. haha hes going to get his glasses bck. :)Avatar ImageDawna says: It is so bittersweet.Avatar ImageHinkypunkmum says: Aw - reminds me of when Elijah Wood got to keep the Ring, and his sword Sting.... and they only shot LOTR for what ? 5 years ? Less ? This has GOT to be so emotional !! Go Dan !Avatar ImagePotter_Puella says: aw!!!! That is so great that he'll be proud of it for the rest of his life! And he gets to keep the glasses---lucky. :) Avatar Imagepotterforpresident says: Oh, bless him.Avatar ImagePensievePerson says: hmm....i thought of a great idea! Isn't the timing great? Just when the movies are done, the park opens! I say Dan becomes a permanent fixture acting Harry Potter at the park! He can get paid millions still..... How about it? Avatar ImageJillxoxo says: It is wonderful that Dan speaks with so much warmth and fondness for his role and for the experience itself. It just enhances the bond that fans have to the series to know that the actors cared about their work and each other.Avatar Imagebudb says: To build on an earlier story: Peter Jackson's Hobbit project has run into financial problems. WB should take over the entire project ...and Dan Radcliffe can play Bilbo Baggins ;-) Hey, for a young actor to be in TWO major iconic projects before he turns 25, that would truly make for a comfortable life and career!Avatar Imageemdash84 says: We love you Daniel. And I'm so glad you'll carry that Potter love forever :) Avatar ImageMoose_Starr says: Dan is just awesome. budb alas if I remember correctly there were rumors about Dan being approached for the role of Bilbo. I dont remember if the rumors were true or not but, Dan stated that he wasnt going to be in the Hobbit movie.Avatar ImagePollytomat says: SAAAAAAAAAD! When he has tough moments (maybe some critics on his future roles or smth like that) he will put on THE glasses and remember that he is a star))Avatar ImageGryffindor Cutie says: I can understand Dan's feelings because I feel the same way. It's the end of an era. I hope Dan does get the glasses, he deserves them for all his hard work. Those glasses belong to him, he earned them.Avatar ImageIloveDobby says: Aww he cried :) I did to when it was over thoughits sad to think it's "the end" thoughAvatar ImagexxIBelieveInNarglesxx says: aww,gotta love Dan :) love how he said he'll always remember HP oh,and i just feel the same-i guess we all do-...just dunno what i'll do after the last film comes out :(Avatar ImageWolfyWizard says: wow, its hard to believe that its all over, and Dan is such a great guy, im glad he got the glassesAvatar Imagemagicmaniac says: that is sad and awesome! i would be sobbing in tears if i was him!Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: Awww :'( I bet they all cried so hard :( He should be able to keep the glasses :) They must be part of him now :) All the characters will be a part of them :)Avatar Imagebudb says: hey moose_star... yep, saw the same rumors, along with a brief "no, i won't" from Radcliffe. But, things change, right? Since MGM is unable to finance the Hobbit project, WB would be foolish not to take it over. and if they do, then that would be a very different situation, and Radcliffe might reconsider, especially if Jackson decides to be the director himself. we'll see what happens ;-)Avatar ImageLeper says: * sniffles * Dawna is right. Bittersweet is the perfect work for it.Avatar ImageLeper says: *wordAvatar ImageMuggle Mommy says: An amazing guy!Avatar ImageLittle Light says: It will never end!Avatar Imagekellbell says: I'm sad to.Avatar Imagegirlatty1 says: Sad -- but he will still have all of the Potter fans to follow his future acting work and wish him well.
