I wish I had a copy! Imagine how many people probably just threw this away with the rest of their Sunday paper.

I wouldn´t touch that magazine with a burning stick. Do you guys read what they wrote about Dan and Rupert????

they call Dan: Hyper and unstabil (WTF) and Rupert: Chunky and not very intelligent)

Emma seems to be theire darling though

Can you please post the article in the correct order? I don’t know why the gallery is always messed up but for the life of me, I can’t find page 3, either (doesn’t help that the supplement decided to forgo page numbering).

great pictures, TERRIBLE article. what the heck was this guy’s problem? first of all, rupert is hot. he doesn’t get to look as hot as he truly is in Potter, but he’s seriously gorgeous. and he IS smart, but also eccentric, which is usually not a sign of a dormant mind. and how the hell could this “journalist” be “bored rigid” while witnessing the last moments of filming on the biggest movie franchise in the world? a bit dull for him, eh? what, did he just come from lunch with the queen? the whole article had this strange tone of disrespect, like there was something laughable about taking it all seriously, like it would shock fans to know the cast gets tired during long hours of shooting in damp clothes, like, as he said, it may have been a mistake to give your adolescent years up for harry potter. none of that was from the horse’s mouth, it was all this dude, just squawking.

I agree, abandonedboyjon, terribly, terribly written. I think these people were the inspiration for Reeta Skeeter, and that’s without the “comic” ending about the tabloids. They got a lot of things right but so many wrong, and they have clear biases regarding many people involved in the films. They do like Emma; they only got about three facts completely wrong (and I’m not a huge Emma fan that knows loads about her).

Ah well, it was fun to see anyway, so thanks Leaky for sharing!

They may like her now, but they will change their minds suddenly for no apparent reason. These people are can be especially vicious about women and girls. ‘Reeta Skeeter’ is about right.

This article is huge! Some interesting stuff but i see a lot of negativity and it is annoying. A journalist should be as objective as possible, we don’t care if you don’t like one or two actors or if you’re bored. Learn to do your job!

Now, i think many pages are missing from the galleries.

There are some people who just want to be mean and demonstrate their jealousy by writing unappreciative dribble. If the fan base and all the producers and directors love the movies and the actors, who are these guys to criticise? They can do better? I don’t think so. Even though some of us haven’t liked all the films completely, there is nothing that says there shouldn’t be some effort to remain faithful to books, otherwise Jo would not have given permission for them to be made. All those involved in producing have done an amazing job with whole series and the actors have been great. I also agree with abandonedboyjon. Thanks Leaky!!

I enjoyed reading the comments from Emma. She’s so thoughtful. I love reading interviews with Emma & Dan in particular. They’re both very impressive. But what’s the writer got against Rupert? She may not think he’s dating material for Emma, but why be so nasty about it? Her comments were cruel.

I was also taken aback by the writer’s tone in this article, firstly the tone in which he wrote that the people he called “dwarves” had informed him that they preferred the term “little people” (I can only imagine what this individual’s interactions with them would have been like), and then later on when talking about the three stars – poor Rupert especially! And even though he seemed to like Emma, he certainly read a lot into her cryptic answers and behaviour that I’m not really convinced was there. It was like he was trying to find someone else that was as “over” the film series as he was.

How does such a person get granted interviews ON THE LAST DAY OF FILMING? Or at all?
