Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter) was interviewed at Movie-Con III, where he discussed, among other topics, finishing filming “Deathly Hallows”:

shot was us jumping through the screen onto a mat.

Were you in bits?
then but afterwards. I’ve never seen Rupert Grint cry before; it was
weird. It was like seeing your Dad cry. But now we’re on to new things
and I’m looking forward to the future. I’m very excited about The Woman
In Black. I think James (Watkins) is great; he’s going to be the next
Chris Nolan I think.”

In addition Radcliffe talks about his experience of watching the earlier Harry Potter movies:

Have you watched the films on DVD?

Then we saw an action-packed bit of footage, with a few
fresh snippets that weren’t in the trailer: six of Harry’s friends turning into
Polyjuice Potion doppelgangers to get him safely out of the Dursley’s home; the
attack on Fleur and Bill’s wedding reception; Harry and Ron fighting in the
tent when they’re on the run and Voldemort heading up a council of Death Eaters
at Malfoy Manor. And then lots and lots of intense action, including an
extended look at the run through the woods with Death Eaters in close pursuit.
OMG it totally looks awesome.

As of now there is no video of this clip online. You can read the rest of the
