Interview: James and Oliver Phelps12:0AM, Jan 1, 0001
It really hit home just how much this is coming to an end.
Having worked on all the films for so long, and having felt so at home in so many of the sets, it must have been a strangely emotive thing seeing them all destroyed. How was that in the great hall or the courtyard?
James: Well, we're in the great hall and that's on B stage, and it always has been on B stage, on A stage has been the common room. We went in and the common room was gone because it wasn't needed. It kinda hit home that this is gonna be the last film. Then we were going into the great hall and half of that was knocked down. There are holes in the walls and rubble everywhere.
It really hit home just how much this is coming to an end, but also how much Hogwarts as a school takes a battering, like the poster, pretty much half of it is all burned down. It's not as if a little battle goes on in one little section, it goes on for the whole thing.
Over the course of films Fred and George are characterized largely as jokesters, but there's a particularly harrowing scene in the last film, a dramatic death scene. What was it like to shoot such a disturbing moment?
Oliver: It was really strange for me to watch James lay there like that, knowing we had to get into character and try and to have George react to it, but to see your own brother there pretty much like a dead person was really weird and quite hard to film. We did about six versions of it. The hall was actually packed with people. Sometimes you do a crying scene and it's a closed set. But this time there were loads of people everywhere; so we pretty much just had to go full force on to it.
James: There were 400 people on that.
Oliver: About 400 people on the set, yeah. But I wasn't the only one crying. Rupert was crying as well, but apparently he cried on the last day of filming, which I didn't do.
