Trio Talk Filming Seven Potters and Silver Doe Scenes for "Deathly Hallows"

French Harry Potter fan site has posted a select translation from the February issue of One Magazine, which features short interviews with actors Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) about filming "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows."  In the article, Mr. Radcliffe speaks in regards to the Silver Doe sequence in the seventh film which will feature the young actor naked.  The rough translation relates:

"In the Deathly Hallows, you'll see Harry as you never saw him before ! For example, I shot a scene where i'm entirely naked. When I read the script, I thought that I would carry underwears but no ! I've already done it for Equus so it wasn't so difficult. I'm wondering how people will react, even if any things will be hidden in the screen!"
Readers will recall the first news of this scene coming from DH director David Yates back in November.  Mr. Radcliffe goes on to say the following of the Seven Potters sequence:
"Recently, we've finished a scene in which I had difficulties. It's the 7 Potter's scene ! We had to shoot a take where I was a different Harry instead of the other actors. It was fun, but very hard, because sometimes, I forgot who I had to be ... That made me crazy!"
The quotes from the One Magazine article continue, with Emma Watson speaking to the much anticipated kiss between her character and the character of Ron Weasley, portrayed by actor Rupert Grint.  On this subject, Miss Watson is quoted as saying:
"To kiss Rupert in front of cameras will stay the strangest experience for me, since I've played in Harry Potter. Him and I was frightened about this scene, and would like to do it quickly. But the hardest is coming ... I have to kiss Dan!  It's a scene where Ron imagine a kiss between Harry and Hermione."
Miss Watson goes on to talk of the Epilouge scene at the end of "Deathly Hallows" by saying, "We haven't filmed the epilogue yet, in which we can see the future of Harry, Ron and Hermione 19 years later. At the beginning, producers would like to replace us, but they finally kept us. We will look like 40 years old persons. I'm very impatient to see that !"

Finally, Rupert Grint spoke to the physical demands of filming, relating, ""We shot a lot of physical scenes. For Daniel, filming was very complicated. But he never complained ... When he became sick because of filming conditions, he was ok and he never complained ..."

Many thanks to

Who doesn’t love seeing a naked Harry?! Can’t wait for all those scenes and more, I love how true to the book they’re being. With Emma’s comment though, I’m hoping they don’t make them look too old. According to the book they should be in their late 30s, Harry being 36 by the ‘Nineteen Years Later’ epilogue, so they should look older, but still maintain their vestiges of beauty. (Yes, I’m shallow, as evidenced by my naked Harry sentence lol.)

Can’t wait to see the kiss between Dan & Emma and Rupert & Emma. Should be interesting to see what part Dan is naked in.

Poor Emma, it must’ve been so awkward having to kiss Rupert convincingly after they’ve grown up together and feel like siblings. It makes sense that Ron would see Harry and Hermione kissing under the influence of the Locket Horcrux. He’s shown some jealousy with regard to them in the books before, so it must be a real fear of his on some level.

I don’t think there’s any point doing the kissing scene with Dan and Emma! Anyway, nice interviews! I’m still wondering how they’re going to film the 7 Potters thing…
