MTV has released another interview with actor Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), in which the actor comments on the process the cast and crew and undertaking to age their characters for the much talked about Epilogue scene at the end of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows."  In the interview, Mr. Felton says:

"For nearly two months, we've all been doing prosthetic tests and all sorts of preparation for the epilogue.  I've been having some aging training. You've got to walk differently. There's a slump in your walk."
He goes on to note that filming, which is set for June, will take about three days and "[it's] going to be the last big thing that we do. It's going to be on location."  The full interview can be read via this link.

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" will be in theaters this November, while Part II will arrive next July.

im so glad they decided to use the original actors instead of getting random new people. it will be sooo much better because of that! :D and um…slump in the walk? in the epilogue they are supposed to be like 25! or like 30! pssh. “slump in the walk.” highly un-necessary.

Well actually Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Draco will all be 37 in the epilogue, but I still don’t think that warrants a “slump in the walk.” Nor really THAT much aging to their faces. Hmm.. interesting.
But I’m still trying not to cry at the thought of it all being over soon!!!!

Yeah, most 37 year olds have decent posture. I don’t get it either. I am so curious to see what they will look like.

Erm… they’re only supposed to be 36 (17 + 19), not 96.

It’s really end now. I’m going to miss everyone in Harry Potter, from the start up to end, especially the characters and the magical world. Love you all guys.

Okay I don’t get the “slump in your walk” thing… I mean they are only going to be in their 30s. They are not going to be in their 50s (at least I hope so)! Well I still look forward to seeing the Epilogue on screen and hopefully they do this well. :)

Heya, I ll be 50 in a few months, and I m still walking like a Fairy! When I was 18,it was definetely mor gnommish! So watch out, Malfoy!!! ( Anyway, makes me wonder what they put in that epilogue. As far as I remember, Malfoy stands on 9 3/4with his wife and son, and it s nothing more than eye contact…)
