Deathly Hallows Epilogue Set Photos!

Want to see Daniel Radcliffe and Bonnie Wright in their late thirties?  I’ve been sort of hoping that the epilogue at the end of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows wouldn’t be included in the movie, just because it’s unnecessary to the plot and the heavy makeup and/or recasting would be distracting.  They’ve gone the [...]

Dan and Emma on Finishing Harry Potter

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows has entered its final two weeks of shooting, according to producer David Heyman, after over ten years of production.  Just last week, pictures leaked from the “epilogue” scene, and the cast members are beginning to mourn.  From People:

“I will be devastated [when it's over],” Radcliffe, 20, said Wednesday at the National Movie Awards in London. “There is nothing I watch without it triggering a series of memories. Everything [about the films] is so linked to my life. At the same time, it is exciting. It is the end.”

“I feel like someone is dying,” said Watson, 20, adding that she never expected just how big the franchise would get (even inspiring a theme area at Universal Orlando). “This kind of love and recognition is just incredible. It is also really emotional for me. I am proud.”

The article notes that Watson is planning on laying low this summer — aside from being done with Harry Potter, she’s on break from Brown — while Radcliffe will jump into another Broadway gig with How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

Daniel Radcliffe on Harry’s Forbidden Forest Death Walk

(Deathly Hallows Part II spoiler alert!)

Filming the scene late in Deathly Hallows in which Harry walks through the Forbidden Forest to meet Voldemort was “really hard,” according to star Daniel Radcliffe, speaking to MTV.

The scene — one of the emotional peaks of the novel — comes right after Harry learns he may have to die at Voldemort’s hand in order for Voldemort to ultimately be defeated.  As he walks to his fate, the ghosts of his dead relatives accompany him in solidarity.  That includes Sirius Black, who was played once again by Gary Oldman.

Radcliffe explained:

It was just one of those things where I think, because I put a lot of pressure on myself to get it right beforehand, I wasn’t able to relax and enjoy it as much as I might have done otherwise. So I was slightly annoyed about that. …

It was one of those scenes that by the end of the third day of it, we were going, “I don’t know if I like this one as much as I did at the beginning.” It was really, really tough.  But Gary was brilliant.

Daniel Radcliffe Won’t Be a ‘Lucky One’

The normally-reliable Slashfilm recently published a hunch that Daniel Radcliffe and actress Lily Rabe would be starring in a big-screen adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’s novel The Lucky One.

Unfortunately, it didn’t pan out, but there might be some truth in it.  The news came from a couple of tweets from producer Christine Vachon, who revealed that she attended a script reading with Radcliffe, Rabe, and director Douglas McGrath.  She didn’t reveal the name of the movie.  So if it’s not The Lucky One, what is it?

MTV suggests it might be Nothing Else Like it on Earth, a story about the building of the Brooklyn Bridge.  Sigourney Weaver and Nathan Lane have also been attached to the project.

Still, there have been no confirmations, and the fact is, a script reading doesn’t mean you’re actually involved in the movie.  A lot of times, script readings are done as favors, or just to check out a story and find out how well it plays when you have actors speaking the lines out loud.

But stay tuned.  Whether or not Radcliffe ends up in this movie, it sounds more and more like he’ll have an interesting post-Harry Potter career.

Helena Bonham Carter Had Fun Playing Hermione

Wait, what?

In the Harry Potter franchise, Helena Bonham Carter plays Bellatrix Lestrange, of course.  But if you’ll remember, there’s a scene in Deathly Hallows — the one where they break into Gringotts — in which Hermione takes some polyjuice potion in order to transform into Bellatrix.  Naturally, Emma Watson wouldn’t be filming those scenes — Carter would.

The actress told MTV recently that the scenes were great fun to film:

“The best bit about being Bellatrix in this one is also because I got to pretend to be Hermione,” she added of a pivotal scene that has the evil witch’s identity being assumed by Harry’s friend in order to gain access to Gringotts Wizarding Bank, which holds Hufflepuff’s cup — and a part of Voldemort’s soul. “Because Hermione takes polyjuice potion and gets to look like Bellatrix.”…

“It was great fun,” she said of the scene. “[I was] looking at Dan [Radcliffe] and Rupert [Grint] and they were treating me as if I was 17.”

Carter also reveals that all of her scenes take place in Part II of Deathly Hallows — which is a pretty big clue in terms of where they’re going to split the book up.  The scene in which she tortures Hermione happens around the midpoint of the book, but it’ll be in the second film.
