Warwick Davis on “Deathly Hallows” Split; Set to Finish Filming in June
Apr 10, 2010
Actor Warwick Davis is the subject of a new interview on SciFiNow.co.uk in which the Professor Flitwick actor discusses wrapping up filming on the “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” film, as well as his thoughts on the decision to split the final installment. Confirming that he will wrap filming in June, Mr. Davis relates that, after the first audition many years ago, he did not “know that it was going to become a part of my life for 10 years. It was 2000 then, it’s now 2010, and I’m still doing it.” He expands further by saying:
“I don’t remember a point in the films though, where we knew ˜Right, now we’re going all the way’. I just remember each time we were finishing, we were wondering if we were going to be back again. If I’d have known 10 years ago it would have been lovely.”
On the subject of the final film being split into two parts, Mr. Davis says:
“I think it was good, because I think sometimes in the past we could have done that with the other stories, because they are so rich. I’m never actually disappointed¦ well, I am disappointed because sometimes it leaves my parts out¦ but I think the readership is sometimes disappointed. They’ll read in their minds, and in the later books certainly, you were starting to think ˜Ooh, I wonder what this is going to look like in the movie, I bet this will look fantastic’ and then when certain sequences weren’t in there, there was possible disappointment. So I think it’s a really good decision, because we can do justice to what is the last book and what is the finale of, if you take it as a whole saga, the end has to build…”
The interview continues with discussion of his past work, as well as the creation of his forthcoming autobiography, Size Matters Not: The Extraordinary Career Of Warwick Davis, set for publication on April 22nd.
