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.
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!
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!!!
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?
