Kissing,Toilet Breaks, Props and Favourite lines, the Harry Potter cast reveal all at the London Press Conference for Deathly Hallows
Yesterday was part one of probably the biggest press junkets to come to London since, well, since the last Harry Potter film. The London press conference for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows took place yesterday with almost the whole huge cast, minus one noticeable appearance from the film's star, Harry Potter, Danielle Radcliffe, who was on a plane on his way back from New York for today's premiere in London.
Many laughs were had by all, as the stars discussed kissing co-stars, they're favourite prop from the film, toilet breaks, and the sadness of leaving behind the film that has been part of their lives for ten years. A very hungover Rupert Grint poignantly commented; "I've felt lost. Not known what to do with myself. It's sad. I'll miss everyone."
Many of the questions were aimed at Rupert Grint's character Ron Weasley and Emma Watson's character Hermione Granger, who finally kissed, yet lucky Emma also gets to kiss Danielle Radcliffe in a dream sequence depicting Ron Weasley's worst nightmare. When Emma was asked to comment on kissing both stars she commented;
"I have to be diplomatic here... kissing Dan, or Harry, was a figment of Ron's imagination in the worst possible way. I did it half naked and covered in silver paint so that was pretty awkward. Then kissing Rupert - well, we'd just been soaked by an enormous bucket of water - so that was also pretty awkward too. But it's true what they say - once you've done it four or five times, kissing gets quite boring."
Even the lovely Matt Lewis, (dear God is that really Neville - proving to teenage girls everywhere, don't dismiss that dorky chubby little boy in your school, he could grow up into a fully fledged hotty!) had the audience in stitches when he announced; "In true Neville Long-Bottom style, can I interrupt things to say I really need to the loo? Mine's the Sword of Gryffindor by the way, (when asked about his favourite prop) but I'll be back by the time this lot have said their bits." And with that, he left the room - with all 250 journalists there completely erupting with laughter.
So all in all it was a great day, with Tom Felton who plays Draco Malfoy apparently being the nicest of all the cast, stopping to have photos with all the journalists, and even kissing a girl on the cheek in front of his girlfriend.
