Dan Radcliffe and Emma Watson recently spoke with Yahoo! Movies while on the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The article talks about how this film, of course, is getting darker, but Dan says it’s actually fun to film.
“The main thing is we’re not at Hogwarts. It makes a huge difference. It gives the film a totally different feel. It might take people a while to adjust to this one,” remarked Daniel Radcliffe. “Part One is a road movie. And the action is going to be pretty extraordinary.”
Emma said she loved being outside running about.
“It was so nice to be outside, in the forest and out of the studio – running about. It was so much fun. Because it’s such an emotional, heavy film, it was nice to get out and do some action stuff.
“They were very fun scenes to film. Being out of Hogwarts just makes it really different. It just gives the audience a whole different experience. I’m so excited to see it together.”
Dan admitted that filming the story out of sequence had him a bit confused.
“It’s been odd trying to keep track of it all. I’ve forgotten stuff we’ve done. It’s been a weird experience.”
They both expounded on what emotions their characters are going through during this film.
“Harry is like a Roman Emperor in his last days and everyone is turning on him,” moaned Radcliffe. “Harry is completely paranoid about what Ron and Hermione are saying about him. He thinks they’re doubting his leadership, but while he is asking people that, he himself is doubting his leadership. He has no plan, so he is pretty useless.”
Watson adds, “It’s challenging in every way – physically, emotionally. They’re away from home. They’re isolated, they don’t have any news. They don’t know what they’re doing. They’re pulling at shreds. Dumbledore had hardly left them anything to go on.”
