Radcliffe Speaks With The Daily Record
HARRY Potter star Daniel Radcliffe has revealed how the boy wizard takes the high road to Scotland in his next movie.
Campsite scenes showing Harry and his mates on the run from evil enemy Voldemort were shot on the shores of Loch Etive, near Oban.
The 20-year-old actor spoke to the Sunday Mail last week when we were given exclusive access to the set of Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part One.
Daniel said: "We were only in Scotland for one night to do the camping scenes but it was magic.
"The mountains up there looked kind of blue and the weather was great. It was fun but I am not sure how well I would cope if I really went camping.
"I'm sure I would enjoy it as long as there was someone to cook for me.
I have done caravan holidays and they were great.
"It was when we were in a caravan in Devon that I experienced my first thunderstorm. I was terrified." Daniel and the regular Harry Potter cast - including Rupert Grint and Emma Watson as best friends Ron and Hermione - are currently filming the two-part finale at Leavesden Studios near Watford.
And even though the deep freeze had gripped the area - surrounding the studios with ice and snow - the Potter team managed to avoid falling victim to the Arctic weather.
Producer David Barron made a snap decision not to write snow scenes into the plot.
He said: "If we had the likelihood is that by the time we filmed them, the snow would have gone. We have only lost half a day's filming because of the snow." Instead of shooting the scheduled outdoor sequences last week, the team moved back inside the studios and completed scenes on the giant Hogwarts Great Hall set.
As he prepared to act out a dramatic scene in the battle against Voldemort, Daniel revealed that audiences can expect a change of scene when the first part of the finale is released later this year.
He said: "Part I is a road movie.
We are not in Hogwarts at all and it's going to look very different, And the action is going to be pretty extraordinary."
