Last week I had the chance to participate in roundtable interviews with the cast and crew of the Harry Potter series. We will be posting the interviews throughout the week leading up to the latest and next to last installment of the series – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 1. The first interview is with Emma Watson, now age 20, who plays Hermione Granger in the films. Topics ranged from the gradual goodbye between cast members, reshooting the epilogue, props she took home, the kissing scene, initially being cynical about the book being split over two films, what she plans to do with her career post-Potter, her new haircut, studying history at Brown, participating in a college stage production, and even her fashion interests. You can watch the video interview now embedded after the jump.

Since the 2008 announcement that the final film in the Harry Potter series would in fact be the final two films in the series, one big fan question has been: where will the split fall? Last year an interview with director David Yates in the LA Times suggested one spot, but now it seems that the edit process has led him to a different cliffhanger.
Info is after the break, and it should go without saying that this is spoilerish stuff if you’ve not read the books. Read More »
