More on “Deathly Hallows” Epilogue from Rupert Grint and Tom Felton


Apr 30, 2010

Posted by EdwardTLC

There is a brief report online today from a recent set visit the Philippine Daily Inquirer made to the set of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.” The article, which can be read right here, features a short discussion with Harry Potter actors Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) and Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) regarding the long-anticipated Epilogue scene, where their characters, nineteen years later, send their children off to Hogwarts. Quoatege:

Like Rupert, who had scenes with a boy actor who plays his child (“The kid looks just like me!”), Tom Felton also acted with a youngster who portrays his offspring. “It was bizarre, nerve-wracking and poignant at the same time, because it reminded me of how I began’ pointed out Tom, who is as nice in person as he is evil as Draco Malfoy.

The article continues, with comments from Potter producer David Baron, who notes that “There are three sensible places where we can do the split.” Actor Robbie Coltrane also speaks briefly to the extensive makeup process to become Hagrid, while Mr. Grint again speaks to the kiss he will share with actress Emma Watson in the film.

Avatar Imagegryffindor1991 says: they cast their children? cool. i cant wait to find out more. :)Avatar ImageMosu says: lol that was soo cute, (“The kid looks just like me!”), ♥Avatar ImageMosu says: when is the trailer coming out!!?? -_-Avatar ImagePaintTheSky says: "Like Rupert, who 'had' scenes with a boy actor who plays his child..."? Maybe I'm reading too much into this, but does use of the past tense 'had' infer that the epilogue scene is currently in production or has already been filmed?Avatar ImageAlice Weasley says: "He looks just like me!"- awesome!!! :DAvatar Imagehrhgnl says: I can't wait to see the epilogue. Rupert had scenes with Ron's son , what about Rose? Avatar ImageSigmaKnight says: Mr. Felton there has a good head on his shoulders there.Avatar Imagemarypao says: @PaintTheSky - Dan Radcliffe mentioned in his MTV interviews that they had done some test scenes with the kids but it wasn't filmed yet.Avatar Imagenealiezealbie says: ohhh boy. ohhh boy. this is happening! i am sooo excited! wow. i absolutely cannot wait for this epilogue! ahh! i want the trailer asap! or at the very least some promo shots! c'mon WB, hook us up! :D also, it was lovely hearing about hagrid and the infamous "spilt." :/ i hope that get that right!! Avatar Imagenwrosey says: AHHHHHHHH CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!Avatar ImageYodatheHobbit says: Actually, Dan mentioned he had only done some makeup tests for the epilogue and is hopeful the head makeup woman's daughter would be able to play Lily. It isn't yet confirmed she was cast.Avatar Imagelunaisawesome says: "There are three sensible places where we can do the split." "There are three sensible places where we can do the split." "There are three sensible places where we can do the split." (she is repeating this over & over to herself in an awed voice, trying to make sense of it.) "There are three sensible places where we can do the split." "There are three sensible places where we can do the split." "There are three sensible places where we can do the split." YOU MEAN THEY DON'T KNOW YET!!! AAAURGG!!! THE SUSPENSE IS KILLING ME!!!Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: What about little Rose? They arent cutting her out are they? It sould like they're getting very close to filiming the Epilogue. I cant wait to see it! I know I'll be crying.Avatar ImageTheRebekinator says: pretty cool:)Avatar ImagePeverell62442 says: I'm sure Rose is still in the epilogue. Rupert probably just happened to mention "The kid looks just like me!" and of course he was talking about the boy, so the article only talked about the boy. The article doesn't even explain the Epilogue, so clearly this isn't a "tell-all" article anyway. Or for all we know, they haven't cast all of the kids yet. Avatar ImageLucida says: I really hope they have Teddy and Victoire in the epilogue!Avatar ImageI love my Spectra Specs says: OH MY GOSH! I'm SOOOO excited!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageLittle Light says: I wanna see their "kids!" Like, right now!!!!Avatar ImageDrome says: Oow... Mini-rupert. :3Avatar ImageNumeroUnoFan says: woo kiss sceneAvatar ImageSpook says: Of course they know where they want to split the movies. But why tell us now? Because we will keep asking and suspense is better!!! :) Yes keep it going. Looking forward to it all.Avatar ImageYodatheHobbit says: Spook knows how it works.Avatar Imagebeallgood01 says: Just something else to look forward to in the last two movies. November will be here before we know it. Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: "the kid looks just like me" cool man! so fianlly they've cast the kids. and wow i am looking forward for emma rupert kiss.Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: (“The kid looks just like me!”), thats so cuuute. finally they have cast the kids. i'm really looking forward for the rupert emma kiss.Avatar ImageFilmGirl27 says: This sounds very promising! I'm sure they will have Rose too (after all, they didn't even mention Harry's kids) so don't worry. I can't wait to see what the kids look like! And of course the Trio and Draco Benjamin Button style. :)Avatar ImageLove is the greatest magic says: Oh I'm really looking forward to the epilogue. It'll be sad when we see it as it will be the end of the movies but I really can't wait to see how they do it. Avatar Imagecha_granger says: Hmm... I can't imagine how they "kids" would look like. They have to be look like their "parents", huh? :)Avatar ImagePollytomat says: Cool! It had to be very difficult to find children looking like Dan, Rupert, Emma, Draco...))) Good job made by casting directors! :)Avatar ImageScarStruck says: Omg suspense/ahhhh-ness!!!! =O I'm still kinda freakin out about the epilogue int eh first place I don't know if I cna talk about all the details.LOL. =) OMGAvatar Imagehalfbloodprincesss says: AHHHHHHHHHH the suspense is going to tear me apart!!!! omg omg omg omg omg this movie couldn't come soon enough!Avatar ImageDobbyWinkyKreacher says: I hope it is perfectly done. I don't really want Harry Potter to end I would love to know more of the 19 year interval. As for the Ron and Hermione kiss. That was awesome in the book. :-)Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: This is so exciting! I am sure they picked the right kids (I hope!). That is creepy about that guy who wanted to adopt Tom though!Avatar ImagePotterChocolate says: I'm so excited!! I wonder who Albus potter will look more like... or maybe he'll be just like harry, with only his mother's eyes? :)Avatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: That must creepy, seeing how your actual children look like even though you aren't married. But I cannot wait till Rupert finally kisses Emma. I have waiting for years for them to go together. They are meant for each other!Avatar Imagejhangelgurl says: Oh man I can't wait. Please hurry up with a trailor!Avatar Imagewheezesemployee says: omg that is so cool Avatar Imagesp0rtsbabe96 says: I can't wait to see ScorpiousAvatar ImageHermione Elizabeth says: The suspense on this is killing me! But I do want to be surprised for the Epilogue especially so it all sounds like its going to great! :)Avatar ImageWeetzie says: Sounds like they haven't decided where to split it yet.Avatar ImageMalfoyDiva says: I can't wait for the movie to be released. I am so excited to finally discover out of me and all my friends who guessed right the moment of the split. "Three sensible places" I guess that means the moment before the one I guessed, the moment I guessed, or the moment just after the one I guessed. The key is in wondering if the filmakers was to cut just before something new, on a clifhanger note (Which I think they will), or on an emotional high. I myself would split the two movies right at the moment that the horocrux necklace is dragging Harry to the deapths of the frozen pond. The screen will fade to black and leave the audience wondering...Will he get out!!! Will he get out!!!Avatar ImageMalfoyDiva says: BTW I actually think that Rupert and Emma being friends for ten+ years should have helped rather than hindered. Afterall this time they sould be quite comfortable around eachother and be able to come together in the scene to "Have fun" and "Make it real for the fans". I know they found it awkward, but I think it'd be much more awkward to kiss a stanger you just met, no? Avatar ImageEmmaline10248 says: cool!!!!:)Avatar Imagelunarules713 says: it would be cool to get to see what your kid might acctually look like. it will be weird to see if and how they make them look older.Avatar ImageDiamondWings says: So cool!!! =DAvatar Imageladybugzmom says: Yay, I can't wait! Avatar Imageblessi says: hehe :)) I'm really excited to see the kids.Avatar Imageforgetmenot_007 says: Can't wait to find out how they (& their children) look after 19 years! A bit sad, though,because it's really coming to an end....Avatar ImageWant to be a Weasley says: I can't wait to see DH and of course the epilogue!Avatar ImageBewareoftheNargles says: Wow, this is a scene I know will be great to see and at the same time terribly sad. Oh, the lucky kids who get to be Harry Ron and Hermione's kids!!Avatar ImageNot Slytherin says: Trying not to read too many details about DH! Ugh.Avatar Imageshbz says: I can't wait for the Epilogue, it's on one of the things on my checklist for things I want to see!Avatar Imagehermionenluna says: aww an adorable little rupert!! Avatar Imagedobby_rocks says: Albus should look like Harry as the book basically says he is a mini-Harry in appearance and the only one of the kids that inherited Lily and Harry’s green eyes (blue in the movies). I could see how it would be odd to kiss a friend but then maybe a bit better then having to kiss a stranger. Like Rupert said he didn’t know Jess (Lavander) long before they had to do their kissing scene. I am looking forward to this scene. Avatar Imagemy_dogs_servant says: YYYAAAYYY!!!!!!Avatar Imagemagicmaniac says: sweet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar ImageNicci Weasley says: I'm really looking forward to the epilogue scene! Will be cool to see them 19 years older and with children :)Avatar Imagerohit_albus severus says: 19 years later...omg this movie is gonna kill me coz of the suspense they are creating in...awesome:)Avatar Imagerohit_albus severus says: 19 years later...omg this movie is gonna kill me coz of the suspense they are creating in...awesome:)Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I am positive that I will have a mental breakdown as I watch the epilogue scene when it airs in theaters. That said, David Heyman's remarks are curious; I would like for him to clarify what those three spots to split DH are, to our gratitude.Avatar Imagemuggle..andproudofit says: Ohmygods! I so can't wait ....but i don't want it to end!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Avatar Imagehewy says: That was a great interview all around. Robbie has such a wicked sense of humor, he was so perfectly cast as Hagrid. The trio and Draco won't have aged that dramatically after all it's only 19 years not 39 years. Tom Felton is such an adorable young man but the guy who changed his name and built a replica of Malfoy Mansion has to be about 2 bubbles off plumb.Avatar ImagePotter_Puella says: I really hope they split the film when Xeno says "Are you referring to the sign of the Deathly Hallows?"; and then they zoom out the house window up into the sky while playing Hedwig's Theme. :) Avatar ImageCatherine says: i love getting news about the ending and knowing all they are keeping from the books! its fantastic!!!!!!! it gives me reasurence they are doing things "correctly"! Avatar Imagealicia00 says: it all most over :(Avatar ImageRubyHagrid says: Where is that picture from? I keep seeing says hermioneroomicon. Is that from the movie?Avatar ImageIloveDobby says: Can't wait to see how the epilogue turns out hope its good! :)Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: "Two bubbles off plumb"? Oooh, good expression, Hewy... I know a LOT of juicy synonyms for "not right in the head," but that one is new to me (and I even went to owner/builder school and learned a lot of "carpenterisms"!). Is it British? I'm definitely going to have to find places to use it. Thanks!Avatar ImageJessSnape says: My goodness... I can't wait for this movie to be done and to actually begin to see trailers... and the countdown to get closer... and get dressed up to go to the midnight showing... and see it again the next night... and discuss the movie to no end with other HP fans... and argue about what changes were good and what should have been left as in the book... and to begin this process all over again because of part 2!!!Avatar ImageFresca says: This is great! The epilogue will definitely be in the Deathly Hllows movie, part 2. I can understand obsessing over the HP movies and books, but to build a Wiltshire mansion and try to emulate Lucius Malfoy is over the top! It is a good thing that Rupert Grint and Tom Felton are so grounded.Avatar Imageawesomness25 says: Yea only 193 days!! I can't wait!Avatar Imagelttlmsravnclaw07 says: I want to see the trailer!Avatar Imagesiriuslyamanda says: I'm so exciteddd :DAvatar ImageAirallia says: I can't wait! I wonder what they'll do for Teddy lupin....Avatar ImageGrintFan says: omg,, i'm reaaly so excited,,it's so cool to see someone like you when ur a kid,,seems like youve meet ur future son,,haha:)
