Their memories about the film Harry Potter have shared Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Helena Bonham Carter, Alan Rickman, Jason Isaacs, Helen McCrory and other actors of the project.
"I am very worried that I'll have to chit school and spend much time on the set, because by then the BBC showed a mini-series about the magic tricks of David Copperfield. While I was not so much fascinated by the phenomenon of Harry Potter as other children. Involvement to the entire proceeding was not for me then great values, although in the next 10 years, I received a lot of fun, fulfilling the role of Harry"- Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter).
"I was very afraid of Ralph Fiennes. And still continue to fear a certain extent. In ordinary life he is very nice person. But as for his acting reincarnation, it could cause you to put a little in your pants" - Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter).
"When it came time to shoot a passionate kiss between Ron and Hermione, with Rupert, we already cracked under the pressure of the public. We just died laughing. It was very difficult to treat everything seriously, but we both knew what to do correctly, as we walked by this time 10 years and 7 films. I think we have succeeded, although I was nervous and giggling", - Emma Watson (Hermione Granger)."
"The only thing I'm sorry about is that I had a few scenes with Ralph Fiennes, and I do not eat candy and chocolate had a good shot at"- Emma Watson (Hermione Granger).
"My first shots in which I appeared - this is the last scene of "Philosopher's Stone", when we all sit in a train and leave for home from Hogwarts. Then this was the first time in my life when I was in front of the camera. There were a lot of people, something happening all the time, so I am madly shy and I just filled emotions. When Chris Columbus was first yelled "Action!" I gasped with delight", - Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley).
“Director of "Prisoner of Azkaban" Alfonso Cuaron has asked us to write an essay about our characters. I did not write, because I thought that would do the same and Ron. This was my alibi. Also, at that time I was very busy with real exams in a real school", - Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley).
"I wore a sealing suite in the 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th movies and false teeth in the 3rd and 4th. I did not mind it, until I was 14 or 15 years, and have not yet realized that on the set is full of pretty girls. Then I began to worry the question: "Why me?" - Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom)
"I was involved in the shooting about seven weeks of the year. At other times, I acted in other films or studied filmmaking. But as soon as I dressed in costume of Snape, in my head arose the phrase, "Oh yeah ... I know you",- Alan Rickman (Severus Snape).
"Being a student, sitting in the gallery and watch the game of Michael Gambon and Maggie Smith in London's National Theatre, and then, decades later to find myself in a wicker chair, laughing along with them on the set ... it's an indescribable feeling," - Alan Rickman (Severus Snape).
"My wigs appeared long before Pamela Anderson and Lady Gaga. But I could not keep myself from any of them. In fact, I think that these wigs agents are better than mine. I guess while I'm talking about, they now tan in the Bahamas"- Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy).
"If I ever started thinking about the scene of battle with Gary Oldman, which was withdrawn a month, I would have imagined something from Shakespeare, and not waving wands made of papier-mache. But anyway, it's so much fun, then it is even a shame to take money for this"- Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy).
"We have all read the books of Jo Rowling along with all the ordinary people. And we have enjoyed these books as readers and fans, rather than as actors in films," - Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley).
"I was so afraid of Alan Rickman, it took me about five years, to dare and start a conversation with him. He has an incredible sense of restrained English humor. While Snape inspires fear, Alan very friendly person" - Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy).
"Daniel handed us all an example on the court, because he is an incredible workaholic. When you're behind a long day of work, he first began to cheer and all the talk about how lucky we are that we have chosen," - Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy).
"All the props and stage scenery became more real to the extent of their use of film to film. Magic Wands were fake wood. They are native to each of us. And all this was something that I am not afraid of the word of magic" - Warwick Davis (Professor Flitwick).
"Oh, I loved my children from the screen, I loved them all! In the fourth film I have not shot, and they sent me a postcard saying, "Come Back, Mom! Dad can’t cope with us!" The feelings from the work was cozy, home and family. I do not know of similar movies or series. I think it was because we were together for 10 years and watched as the children grow up, grow old and adults. It was not like work"- Julie Walters (Mrs. Weasley).
"When you use a magic wand you like to play Nintendo Wii. You use force, but nobody is really no harm. In general, the next day, your hand hangs a whip after these exercises with a stick" - Natalia Tena ( Tonks).
"The scene of my transformation into a werewolf in "Prisoner of Azkaban" was a gift for me, because as a child I loved to pretend to be a werewolf. It was a bit uncomfortable doing it in make-up, but it was worth it" - David Thewlis (Professor Lupin).
"I loved my false teeth! I took them myself, because they will not fit anyone else. I keep them in a blue plastic box in the bathroom and take out when I was Miss Bellatrix," - Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix Lestrange).
"At this time you would cut me!" It was for self-preservation in Potteriana"- Helena Bonham Carter (Bellatrix Lestrange).
"I was obsessed fan of the books and movies about Harry Potter. I remember the day when David Yates called me at home and said that I will be listening to Daniel Radcliffe. I had to chirp, like, “Oh, all right." Well, and I started to play fool" - Evanna Lynch (Polumna Lovegood).
"My twin brother Oliver and I do not really know which of us will play Fred and who - George Weasley, until we handed the script. Frankly, I prefer Fred, and you know what happened," - James Phelps (Fred Weasley).
"At the studio Leavesden Studios we with Rupert and James often went down to the underground parking lot, where the cavern was equipped with a place to play mini-golf. Golf - the only sport in which we were allowed to do, because it is relatively safe. Contact sports we couldn’t play"- Oliver Phelps (George Weasley).
"I've always played either villains or funny people. For the first time I got the role of nice person. It was a gift for me and still in the supermarkets children watch at me. This is true"- Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid).

Harry Potter has turned Emma Watson into a star and an icon of style, while allowing to earn more and 24 million pounds sterling. However, playing Hermione Granger, Emma often did not belong to herself. Now, finally, she is free.
In an exclusive interview with the British Daily Mirror the star has said: "I could not dispose of a single second of the day during filming. I was told whom should I meet, when can I eat and go to the toilet."
"I spent most of my life, being someone else, not me. I have always had a clear sense of who I am and what I want, but I really need time to figure it out until the end."
Emma was 11 years old, and she had not starred in a movie, when she received an invitation to play Hermione, after eleven plays.
"Watching the last film I felt like I learned something in 10 years. The first time I felt that I was indeed an actress, and I knew how to play. It's an amazing feeling."
"I worked with animals, with special effects, was doing difficult tricks, and met on site with some of the finest actors and actresses in the world. The best workout and inconceivable. It seems that I have left the most difficult film school and I still can not believe how lucky I was. I now have ambitious plans for the use of experience gained in these projects. "
"I look back and see a little girl, and I know that this girl – is me, but I still perceive her as another person".
"I'm at a loss for observing the stages of growing up - my hair was just horrible! So much time has passed, and so many things happened, it seems I'm not familiar with this girl. But it is very interesting to see how the character evolved, and how much I changed. "
In the film's final scenes, we see Hermione's mother's sons, who are studying at Hogwarts.
"When I realized that Ryan Turner, who plays my youngest son, Hugo, the same age as I was when I first set foot on the railway platform, I was breathless. Looking at the excited and anxious boys, my thoughts returned to my first day of shooting. "
"What about my possible appearance, when I'm much older, I came out pretty sharp and emotionally, but I'm glad what I got. I looked real, very natural. "
Emma has learned a lot since I first attended the premiere accompanied by Daniel and Rupert.
"I stepped on my first red carpet in 12 years, and in consequence of doing this every year. You make mistakes and learn them."
Emma looks like a typical English Rose, but, in fact she was born in Paris. When she was 5 years old, her parents divorced and she and her mother Jacqueline and younger brother Alex moved to Oxfordshire.
Her greatest treasure - a diamond ring that her mother bought in a vintage jewelry store in Paris in Emma's birthday.
"My mother wore a ring on her little finger and gave it to me on my eighteenth birthday, and when I do not work, I wear it every day."
"I like that the jewelry has a story. And I am pleased that when I'm out of town and away from home, my mother looked at my picture and sees the ring on my finger. It seemed to support the connection between us."
As a student of the American Brown University for two years, Emma left school to play in the final two episodes of "Harry Potter". She plans to return to school in October of this year as a student at Oxford.
"Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" will forever remain in my heart, but "Deathly Hallows" is the first and second part - my favorite. We have built up, stand tough test, and for the first time I really felt like an actress. "
"How can I explain in words, what does all this mean for me? By the end of my life, I keep a piece of that past, and I'm incredibly glad I became involved in a story about a boy who survived."
Along with record collections in North America, the final Harry Potter movie with the same unseen force attacked all the existing achievements in international and global box offices. Earning 312.3 million dollars of international fees and 481.5 million worldwide, the second part of "Deathly Hallows" with a huge stock surpassed all available here earlier records.
Even without pending on August 4, the Chinese premier undertaken by studio Warner Bros. release can be rightly called the most ambitious in the history of world cinema. Total picture shows were over 20 000 screens in 59 territories, with 9000 of them showed in three-dimensional format. They accounted for 61% of revenue came against only 43% in the U.S. and Canada.
Still very fresh in the memory of the achievement of "Pirates of the Caribbean" (260.4 million), "Harry Potter" has exceeded exactly 20%. The two previous films at the start of the franchise, in turn, were able to collect 236 million, respectively, and 205 million dollars. The potential of the remaining stock in the Chinese film market experts estimate at least 15-20 million to 50-60 million start-up and final fees.
Global revenue superiority of the second part of "Deathly Hallows" was even more overwhelming. The previous record for "Half-Blood Prince" was 394 million dollars (158 + 236 000 000), and then a sixth of Harry Potter had five days to three in the U.S. now. Previously released "Pirates of the Caribbean 4" and "Transformers 3" were in the first weekend, respectively, 350.6 and 382.4 million charges against the world's 481.5 million now.
Simple estimations suggest guaranteed conquest 500,000,000th abroad as early as Monday. The title of the movie Harry Potter and the cash billion global revenue also will not have run away from the picture. The question now is just how high it will go up in all three charts (the U.S., international and global).
We now turn to the results for individual areas and key international film market rent. By continuing tradition of the highest revenue came from Britain.
Starting on Friday, a film in three days gathered a record 23.8 million pounds, or 37.8 million dollars in 588 theaters. This corresponded to approximately 4 million tickets sold for 66.8 million inhabitants

It also could not resist records debut weekend and fees for one day (7.5 million Wednesday).

Of the smaller areas in Europe records fees debut weekend fell in the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Norway and Finland.
On the panel, devoted to "The Adventures of Tintin" Steven Spielberg has officially announced the launch of the "Jurassic Park 4". For director has joined also Peter Jackson and together they talked about working on the "Tintin" and answered questions from fans.
At 11 am, when in Los Angeles was still a Friday, the scene of the hall to overflowing potted H Exhibition Center of San Diego with a capacity of over 6,500 people came out. We could write something about the smiling elderly grandfather, but who needs the extra words? Spielberg won the convention Inkpot award for achievement in cinematography.
"Without you I would not be here today - said director, welcoming the audience, applause broke out. - All my life I was a kid. Thank you for staying in children. You will be such during all your life. It seems to me we ought to sit in the room with you. "
Then the conversation turned to "Tintin."
"How many of you read comic books about him?" - asked Spielberg. Only a few people in the room responded positively.
"Well, then it would be much easier!"
Director said that the first learned about Tintin in 1981, read a review of French criticism, comparing it to "Indiana Jones" from Belgian comic Erzhe. Spielberg has found his work, and instantly fell in love. In a sense, a young journalist Tintin really looked like Indiana Jones, he also managed constantly to get into the exciting and dangerous adventures.
Film rights to the comic Spielberg bought back in 1983, but for some reason he decided to make a movie about Tintin just now, and even by the technique of motion capture?
"I had to decide to shoot a feature film with the computer or take a dog in fully animated picture," - explained the master.
Yet the main reason for a "Tintin" was chosen as the animation, it was Spielberg's desire to repeat the exact pattern of Erzhe.
"I do not want the audience to say, "Yeah, not bad, but it does not look like Erzhe." I wanted the characters were a hair's breadth, as in the comics. " "But we tried to add most realistic textures to bring the movie to the game"- added Jackson.
This means that the skin pores are heroes, freckles, scars - details of the most realistic, but the characters are similar to the pattern of Erzhe.
Work on the "Tintin" Spielberg compared with shooting on 8-millimeter camera, because he was always in the hands of the controller, like a gamepad on Playstation. In this case the director saw the reality of the actors on the screen and moving computer characters. Spielberg likened the process of shooting with the drawing, since the director is able to monitor personally many aspects, such as: lighting, play, costumes and more. Continuing the story of the impact on the film, Spielberg said he was inspired by many adventure films, as well as silent films with Buster Keaton.
The philosophy of producing on Spielberg: "I hire a director and am going away."
The most pleasant memories of producing the project with Steven stayed to work on the trilogy "Back to the Future." Does Peter Jackson will return to the horror? Someday in the future he would return.
It turned out that the information on "Jurassic Park 4", which took place in the news in mid-June - the truth. Spielberg said: "We have a story, which I am very pleased to inform you. Hopefully, we'll shoot the fourth film in the next two to three years. "
The last question was from a guy in a shirt that says "If possible, I'd like to meet with Steven Spielberg, shake his hand and say "Thank you very much". Seeing the sign, the director invited the boy to climb on stage and took a picture of his shirt. The scene was photographed by Peter Jackson. The guy is still Spielberg asked: Will he continue to shoot on film? The director responded that "Tintin" had to take off a digit, and then of course he will return to the film.
"The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn 3D" will be released in cinemas in November 3.
Larry Crown (Tom Hanks) - not the young but promising seller, satisfied with his work in a supermarket. However, the image of his life changes after he falls under the roller ruthless downsizing. The reason for his dismissal is his lack of higher education, as after school, he immediately went into the navy, where stayed for long twenty years. After several unsuccessful attempts to find a job again (the mortgage has not been canceled), he nevertheless decided to catch up, because of what and to easy back to business - studying in college.
I must say that it was not Tom Hanks's debut as a director. In addition to staging several separate series of variegated serials at his credit is already a full-length work "What are you doing!". But, alas, Hanks is not able to surpass himself: a new picture appeared on the order of magnitude weaker creation in 1996.
"Larry's Crown" though positioned itself as a romantic comedy. But, this is certainly a romantic film, with rather poor comedy element. Writers clearly wanted to show imagination in regard to humor, which turned out too soft and unobtrusive: rare unconcealed correspondence on lectures by SMS (with its consequences), a pair of characters with fun speech courses and "dance" in front of the door of his teacher - it does not rate a full-fledged comedy. All this underscores the excessive "good-naturedly" of the movie.
As for the peculiar "sending" of the film, which consists in the premise that higher education - this is very useful and necessary for all (by the way, Hanks does not share this opinion), it lost another half-way to the final. In semantic terms the film failed, and all because this is the thesis throughout the tape and so nothing is not confirmed. And whether it's an original plot device, either plot flaw, but "Happy End" has turned out rather ambiguous, as if this ending left-over.
Fortunately, the strength of the movie began its cast, because it is only on it and holds on. And I mean not the number of celebrities on the half-hour film (which there are only two), and the quality of actors’ play. Almost all of them came to be extremely charismatic, never felt busting, no replays. Most of the characters have their own, clearly pronounced, from a black neighbor-huckster with a truly Jewish stranglehold pompous and conceited to the economics professor with a very peculiar sense of humor and tact. Here, I can’t stay more detail on the two central characters: Larry Crown and Taynot Mercedes, one of his professors, played by Julia Roberts.
In general, "Larry Crown" - nothing outstanding, too "good" and sometimes boring movie, which only pulled its well-chosen cast and qualitatively chosen characters. If you want to look at the agonies and the "catastrophe of middle age" of an ordinary American - it is worth to watch this movie.
The San Diego convention started Comic-Con - Mecca geeks from around the world. To the bemusement of some fans in the venue now prevails not only comics and science fiction, and movies like "Twilight." A film crew "Breaking Dawn" has presented the first part of the final Novels.
Robert Pattinson looked different - say, that of the familiar to fans of "Twilight" actor cut hair for the filming of a new tape from David Cronenberg. But Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner have not changed.
Despite the spaciousness of the hall H, numbering more than 6,500 locations, turn to the presentation of "Breaking Dawn" yet many took on Monday. According to eyewitnesses, the excitement around franchise was sleeping heavily, and the room got all the suffering.
On Thursday night, came on stage directed by Bill Condon and clarified some points about his film.
"The second part of the first "Dawn" looks like a very cool horror" - said Condon, especially noting the bloody scene in the final delivery.
Visitors at the convention saw a few scenes from the film, including a honeymoon of Bella and Edward. However, the most difficult work was a wedding scene of the heroes, according to Stewart.
"Filming the wedding took place in an atmosphere of extreme secrecy, - says the actress. - A film crew was very evil in all robbed of phones and cameras. But we were very grateful to them. If my dress gets to the Internet, I'm just going to die. "
The dress, of course, has gotten to the Internet, but in a very, very poor quality: the paparazzi have failed to come close enough to make the best pictures.
The scene of honeymoon was filmed in Brazil during the rainy season.
"I had a feeling that they spent their honeymoon in England, playing board games instead of making love on the beach" - joked Pattinson.
Taylor Lautner said a few words about his character.
"At the beginning, Jacob, young and madly is in love with Bella. And then he breaks his heart. He has a very bad deal with it. But then he has forced to grow up and stand up for Edward and Bella. I can’t wait when you see him! "
As writes "LA Times", the reaction of the audience for the material was active, but less restrained than in previous representations of "Twilight" film at Comic-Con. However, the fans were satisfied.
"I'd like to say to Robert, that in the trailer you have very impressive muscles in the back, - said one girl. - Voiced the thoughts of all fans: yum-yum-yum!"
Director adaptation of the graphic novel by Alan Moore "V Vendetta" has finished work on "The Raven" and looking for a new project. James McTeigue will shoot a thriller "Message From the King".
James McTeigue is known for his work with his brothers Wachowski. He was an assistant director on the trilogy "The Matrix" and led the second film crew while working on "Speed Racer." His debut film was the picture "V", produced by Wachowski.
A painting of Natalie Portman received devastating reviews, no matter showed itself at the box office, all but putting an end to a career of McTeigue. But a year later he was summoned to work by turning inside the movie Oliver Hirshbigelya "Invasion." German filmmaker has made not the same movie, which is expected to producers.
"Ninja Assassin" is also not secured in the genre of film directors McTeigue class "A", but gave an impetus to try his hand at another genre. In March of next year will be shown the gothic thriller "The Raven," where John Cusack plays a writer Edgar Allan Poe.
"Message from the King" - also a thriller, but without a drop of mysticism. The script writers have written "Unknown" Oliver Butcher and Stephen Cornwell. Protagonist is named Jacob King. This charismatic outsider arrives in Los Angeles to investigate the sudden disappearance of his sister.
The project runs a company FilmNation Entertainment, whose production is headed by Aaron Ryder worked with McTeigue on "The Raven".
"Since James has shown us the first installation of the film, it became clear that we will continue our cooperation", - says producer.
The film company has agreed with the Radical Pictures Hilary Swank to participate in the adaptation of comic actress "Shrapnel". Swank not only play a major role, but will also produce a picture. The film promises to be a fantasy with elements of Westerns.
Talks about the film adaptation of "Shrapnel" have been actual for couple of years. In 2009 the first edition comic book publisher Radical Comics director Len Wiseman are interested. After seeing the first issue of the sale, Wiseman decided to develop a film on it, but it seems that he was never able to break the deadlock.
As it became known to "Variety", twice laureate on "Oscar" Hilary Suenk long looked after herself for a draft of this plan. Because the "Shards" is developing in 2250. People colonized the solar system and formed the Solar Alliance, to control planets. Only on Venus were the ones who try to resist the new system. The main character, Samantha, who formerly served in the Marines, living on this planet in self-imposed exile, trying to forget her former life. But when civil war is near its threshold, she again takes up arms and led insurgency.
To date, the "Shrapnel" are not attributed to any one major studio. But it is unlikely quest majors will take a long time: Radical has sold Universal Studios graphic novel adaptation of "Oblivion" Joe Kosinski. Movie with Tom Cruise will star in 2012.
Hilary Swank was incredibly pleased to find a material able to show her ability to act in movies. "I really like the way the Radical Pictures drawn from comic books - she says. - Thanks to the "Shrapnel" and the heroine Samantha I can create very interesting and controversial character, which is quite rare for such genre. "
Note that the adaptations of Radical comics attached several famous directors. For example, Sam Raimi can make a film on the graphic novel Earp: Saints for Sinners, Wyatt Earp where the famous move from the Wild West in at least a wild future.
