Warwick Davis Discusses Last Day of Shooting “Deathly Hallows”

MTV has an interview with Warwick Davis (Professor Flitwick and Griphook) where he discusses his feelings on the last day of shooting “Deathly Hallows”:

“I shot my last day on ‘Harry Potter’ last Saturday. It was a very sad,
very emotional day,” actor Warwick Davis told MTV News recently at the
grand opening of the Wizarding World of Harry Potter theme park. “I never really get upset
finishing a film. I’m normally glad that it’s over, that I won’t have to
wear the makeup anymore ” but I was actually really quite choked up
about it. Ten years’ worth of work finished, and on Sunday, it was
worse. I woke up Sunday morning thinking, ‘No more Harry Potter. That’s
it.’ “

Davis also discusses being at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter grand opening in the interview and says:

“It’s lovely, because we’re all here,” he said, referring to the newly
opened Wizarding World of Harry Potter. “It’s like a big school trip.
We’re all on holiday, so this is like a new beginning. And we still have
the films to see as well.”

I hope they'll always keep in touch with each other and maybe start a once a yr HP family reunion day. Whoever can come would come and those tht couldn't maybe could make it next year and the others could give updates to those who missed coming.

"It was them, as it should be," he said. "The three of them. I was lucky to be there for the last day. I think I was the only other castmember in on it."' I hoped it would end like this for them
