‘Harry Potter’ Stars Recall ‘Emotional’ Last Day of Filming (VIDEO)
Hopefully the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows was stocked with plenty of Kleenex when director David Yates yelled “Cut!” for the final time.
With the Friday release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 mere days away, the movie’s stars are opening up about what it was like to draw the movie series to a close after 10 years of working closely together, and to hear them tell it, it was quite the poignant experience.
Rupert Grint—aka Ron Weasley—appeared on the Today show on Monday morning to promote the next-to-last Harry Potter movie and discussed the bubbling cauldron of emotions that overwhelmed him on the final day of filming. The 22-year-old actor revealed,
“It was a very weird feeling actually the last day. We all knew it was going to kind of come to and end at some point, but it was emotional, just realizing that we weren’t going to be doing this, and that 10 years came down to this one little shot.”
Check out Grint’s interview below:
Meanwhile, Tom Felton—known to Potter-heads worldwide as Draco Malfoy—admitted to E! Online during the New York premiere of Deathly Hallows on Monday night that he was moved to tears on the final days of shooting:
“As I was about to, I kind of scurried off [the set]. I could feel it welling up inside me. It was an emotional moment. I knew I was going to break down if I stayed any longer.”
There must be a spell that can cure that sort of thing.
