Avatar Imagewiz witch says: Interesting!Avatar Imagekatielilly says: Love this! I am so excited for the Ron and Hermione kiss. I bet the whole theater will start cheering!Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: Delightful interview! And what a nice, modest young man he is.Avatar Imageabandonedboyjon says: oh man, why do they have to say stuff like this. i'm not trying to be a downer, but "i can see it's just rupert and emma"....that doesn't sound good at all! given how they felt about it, not comforting to hear they essentially broke character afterwards. Avatar ImageRubeusHagrid says: Really nice. I agree with Katie_Lily: I'll bet when a) whenever McGonagall opens her mouth, b) when they kiss and c) when it ends they'll be MASSIVE applause :)Avatar Imagescallendar says: aboandonedboyjon- I'm sure to him its "just rupert and emma" because he's close to them. to us they will always be ron and hermoine so I don't think it will be disappointing for us. Can't wait to see this one but also sad to know that this is it....after this there's no more suspense waiting for the next one.Avatar ImageDavidTheUnready says: Isn't it nice the way they have all turned out to be nice and normal, Having seen the interviews with Rupert and Emma about that kiss it was amazing they even held the giggles in long enough to film it, they did a few takes so its the directors choice to leave the fun in it. Avatar Imagekiwimci says: Wait wait wait... they don't linger on that moment? I like the idea of Ron and Hermione laughing afterwards!Avatar ImageLunaLuver says: Ah the kiss, it going to be interesting to see how different it is because it'll take place in the Chamber of Secret. 11 days to go! :DAvatar ImageHalfbloodPrince08 says: I dont want it to end!!!!!!!!!!!!! Avatar Imagehewy says: Great interview Dan as always does a terrific job! Waiting on pins and needles for this "THE LAST" film in the series to debut. :(Avatar Imageabandonedboyjon says: mmm, i don't know. the last thing i want is for the kiss to be bad, but i can't say a quote like that is too comforting after all i've heard. i mean, it's the director's choice, yeah, but it could be a bad one. he left in the hermione laugh after the cho/harry kiss in ootp and the first thing most people said to me was that it looked like an outtake. it only works if you don't actually think "this looks like an outtake." it's supposed to just look natural. like, i said, i want it to be good, but i had to hear enough about how gross it actually was, i want to hear that despite that, it looks seamless and awesome and not an ounce of emma and rupert, just hermione and ron. i actually think it was slightly unprofessional for dan to say that...Avatar Imagedsm25 says: Way to NOT do your homework, E!News! "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, Parts 2"????Avatar ImageRubeusHagrid says: Everyone vote for Hagrid in the MTV Harry Potter World Cup!!!! He's losing to Cedric Diggory--because of Twilight! Make sure our beloved Hagrid wins!!! Avatar Imagekyrstalkris says: Ron and Hermione's kiss = Kiss of the decade! :D And I really wish I was one of those reporters/interviewers! You get to watch films early! D;Avatar Imagesilverkacy says: I will cry! It can't end now!Avatar Imagesilverkacy says: DO NOT GET A TATTOOAvatar Imageharrypotterfreak101 says: Bloody Brilliant! I don't want it to end........But I must!Avatar Imagesamhplover says: :') My childhood is coming to an end Avatar ImageNargles_in_Jax_FL says: Just another reminder that it's all over very soon.Avatar Imagemegasilly says: i bet harry will kiss hermioneAvatar Imagehandhrfan18 says: i am going to have tears in my eyes. this was my childhood. i didn't even notice them growing up and now the end is here @.@, damnn how much times have changed, This interview is amazing daniel! i love ur interviews!Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Not too many of these interviews left I should think... Sure has been a lot of 'em over the last several years...Avatar Imagejacket says: So happy! I am just going to cry and laugh and cheer through the whole movie! I'll have to go see it again right after because I'll have missed it through the tears!Avatar Imagehe_who_must_not_be_nicknamed says: I don't think the giggling or the fact that Dan saw them as Rupert and Emma means it's going to be a bad kiss. I mean, granted, it's not the way JKR wrote the kiss, but I still feel that it's within their characters to giggle after they finally kiss. I mean, I've been in that situation before, having had a crush on someone for ages and then finally kissing and realizing they've had a crush on me, too. I can easily understand a giggle, because it's like... all that tension and worrying was for nothing! I should have made a move sooner! lol Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: I'm astonished that people get so worked up about the kissing scenes, but this could just be a sign that I'm getting old. I'm more interested in Dan's remarks about Alan Rickman's performance—that sounds very exciting. For the record, the kiss sounded OK to me!Avatar Imagesiena says: It's amazing how Daniel is still enthusiastic about answering roughly the same questions over and over again ("How was it to grow up on set?" /"How was it to work with some of the finest actors in the world?" / How do you feel about it all ending? / "? All three of them are really really patient. I love his comments on Rickman's performance :) And I've got hair envy - the interviewer' s mane just looks amazing...Avatar Imagemencia says: I can't wait for the kissing scene & Mrs. Weasley's scene with Bellatrix and the final show down between Harry & Voldy. it's gonna be great!!!!!!Avatar ImageMad But Happy says: They were embarrassed and pink in the face in the book (after the kiss), so adding some laughter isn't a huge deal to me. I'm glad to know that HE was pleased with the movie. If he has closure, then it's likely that I will as well.Avatar ImageethanHP says: siena, I agree, that's why Dan is perfect to play this role, it's not just about acting, it's all the energy and patience needed for everything these movies mean. I think the way he describes the kiss is perfect, what he is saying is it looks natural, it doesn't look like somethibng fake, and that's what I think everyone was looking foward to see. :)Avatar Imagemoglet says: @abandonedboyjon, seriously don't worry about Dan's comment about the moment after the kiss, it works really well, it doesn't seem at all out of character for Ron and Hermione, believe me. I saw the film yesterday, there was a sort of aaahhhh and a happy sort of feeling from the audience when they kissed, not cheering which would have ruined it. Mind you it was a crew screening, so not like having a cinema full of obsessed fans. I would be more interested in what Dan says about Alan Rickman's performance, he's right there, Alan is brilliant in the film.Avatar Imageabandonedboyjon says: ok, moglet, i'll take that into consideration. and of course i'm interested in the rickman comment, though being a huge fan of alan's and thinking his greatest turn was probably 'sense and sensibility,' a friggin ANG LEE film, i'm gonna take dan's comment with a grain of salt. i'm not more interested in it though. snape's seriously cool but i'm a straight up ron/hermione fanboy and a hopeless romantic. i want a perfect kiss. if it is not perfect, i will throw a bag of bertie bott's right at the screen, without hesitation! i bet the kiss will get cheers at the first screening, but hopefully i'll see it without afterwards, that sounds very sweet. i guess i shouldn't forget what dan also said about it months and months ago, that is a huge moment in the franchise and a great kiss.Avatar ImageDisneyDarling says: so excited for kiss. i hope its not just hermione (spoiler so not gonna write what she does. just in case someone reads this who has not read the books) and then random kiss.Avatar ImageDobbys-socks says: it wont show up for me. :(Avatar ImageMariaKeis says: DelightfulAvatar Imageiloveronweasley16 says: It's not showing up!! help!Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: It won't let me see it!!! :(Avatar ImageValeria-Johanna says: It's gone.
