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.
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….
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!!
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.
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.
