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."
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.
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!!!
so when is leaky going to start the countdown for deathly hallows? it keeps saying half blood prince is here. its been here since july. lol. now deathly hallows is next. so hurry up already lol. im so glad there being faithful to this book. sounds like this is going to be the best potter film yet and most faithful adaptation.
Yeah, the waiting between te first and the second part will be tough!
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))))
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.
