Now filming has wrapped on the last of the Harry Potter films and with Part One of The Deathly Hallows due for release on the 19th of this month, Daniel Radcliffe has talked of the cast's tearful farewells on the last day of shooting.
“I was devastated and so upset that I cried,” he told HFPA members. “We all did. I’ve never seen Rupert Grint cry in my life before but he did. It was a very emotional day because for the last ten years my day-to-day life has been going into work and seeing those people.”
Part One ends with Voldemart getting possession of the Elder Wand and Part Two, which will be released on July 15 next year, leads to a massive battle at Hogwart’s and Harry’s final confrontation with the Dark Lord.
The six Potter films have earned more than $5.4 billion worldwide, making it the highest grossing global franchise in film history----Star Wars beats it domestically but just barely.
Daniel Radcliffe, 21, is keeping busy without Harry Potter. He is currently filming the spooky suspense thriller The Woman In Black and is taking dance lessons in readiness for his appearance on Broadway next year in the musical How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
“I’m apprehensive but very excited,” he said.
