Famous last words
As they pack up their wands, the worldfamous alumni of Hogwarts School Of Witchcraft And Wizardry talk about their magical ride in the Harry Potter series.
THEY are three of the most recognised faces in the entertainment industry and they belong to one of the most successful film franchises of all time. The kids from the HarryPotter movie series are kids no more and yet they are in no hurry to leave their beloved children’s characters behind.
Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint were in London last week to promote Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1, and they were only too keen to look back and reminisce about their humble beginnings and how it all ends for them (in the movie, at least).
The seventh and final book in the highly successful series by British author J.K. Rowling is told in two fulllength features, and the actors are excited to let their fans in on what they have been working on in the last two years.
It is a bittersweet ending for Radcliffe, Watson and Grint as they say goodbye to Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley – the characters they have played respectively for more than a decade for the eight-film saga that began with Harry Potter And The Sorcerer’s Stone in 2001. Shooting on the last two instalments was completed in June.
Now that the phenomenal movie series on the boy wizard is finally ending, with Part 2 scheduled for release in July next year, the close-knit cast members are ready to embark on new adventures and discover new magic in life.
