I never get tired of reading what the cast says about their experiences. Such an awesome insightful bunch. This is why I love the books and films. As Baron said, HP is much more than a franchise. No matter how much we bicker about what was missing or added in the films – they are films made with care and respect for the literary pieces that inspired them. I’ve seen many book-to-film adaptations in my lifetime (yes, I am “older”) and Harry Potter is among the best – if not the best because it spans seven novels.

It’s always marvelous reading anything from the cast of HP. I get so emotional and teary! We purchased HP DH Pt 2 yesterday, but we watched Pt 1 last night and Pt 2 w/b tonight. Never get tired of watching each film and always see something new. Same with reading the HP books. Thanks for posting these interviews – fantastic reading!

I always love hearing what the actor have to say about being part of this amazing adventure. :) Evanna is the luckiest because she was a fan first, and got to do what all of us only dream about; being apart of Harry Potter. I cant wait to see the red carpet pictures! =D

@the pure-blood princess:)/ginnylove101 {WBM} HOLY COW! I just saw your avatar. So glad to find another Inheritance Cycle fan on here! Congratulations on finishing Inheritance. I won’t get to read it till December but I’d be happy to discuss it with you when I finish it.

I just got home from Potterworld. They have roped off walkways and areas for whatever is happening at 8:30 tonight. Dozens! and dozens! of people “guarding” the roped off, empty places, herding the muggles around in circles since 2 this afternoon, maybe since before that, and pretending the muggles desperately want to walk where somebody else is going to walk at 8:30 tonight. It made Hogsmeade seem pretty small today. Going around in circles instead of exploring is boring, so I ate at The Thee Broomsticks and went home. I wish they would just wait until the regular hours are over at 7 pm and then guard the places where somebody will be walking at 8:30 tonight.
