New Deathly Hallows Set Report with Interviews
The Philippine Daily Inquirer has posted a sample from their upcoming set report for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. In the preview we hear from Rupert Grint, Robbie Coltrane, Tom Felton and David Barron.

Rupert Grint wasn’t needed on the set, but he graciously came to talk to us. The actor who plays Ron Weasley shared his feelings as the blockbuster franchise ends [...]: “It’s a weird feeling. I’ve spent half of my life doing these movies. It’s quite emotional. But, at the same time, I’m looking forward to the freedom to do other films.” The red-haired actor, more talkative now than when we first met him several years ago, also talked about his much-awaited kissing scene with Emma Watson (Hermione Granger). Saying he was nervous since he has known Emma as a friend for 10 years, Rupert revealed that it was hard to concentrate. “The first take was quite hard,” said Rupert, who recalled that they did four takes of the smooch, which many “Harry Potter” fans around the world can’t wait to see.

Like Rupert, who had scenes with a boy actor who plays his child (“The kid looks just like me!”), Tom Felton also acted with a youngster who portrays his offspring. “It was bizarre, nerve-wracking and poignant at the same time, because it reminded me of how I began,” pointed out Tom, who is as nice in person as he is evil as Draco Malfoy.

Blessed with a winking sense of humor, Robbie said that while it takes many hours to put on all that hair, “two young ladies” come with oil to help him take off all that expensive wig and makeup at the end of the day. “Somebody has to do it,” Robbie said with a smile, as he played with his mile-long beard.

Co-producer David Barron disclosed that no decision has yet been made as to where the much-anticipated movies will be split into two parts. “There are three sensible places where we can do the split,” he shared.
