Trio discusses HBP and Deathly Hallows

Two new articles have been released that focus on the final two films in the Harry Potter series. The first article from the Winnipeg Sun is a look at actors Dan Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint, and how they have grown up without much incident through the first six films. Producer David Heyman, director David Yates and actress Imelda Staunton all praised the trio in the interview, and Heyman credited Chris Columbus with doing an extraordinary job with initially casting them. Radcliffe also addressed just how committed he is to these films:

“So, to me, it's just about letting people know that I'm incredibly serious and passionate about this — this series of films — and how much they mean to me. If you've been involved in something for more than seven years now, you want to be able to talk about it articulately and explain why you love it, explain why you loved being involved in it so much.”

The second article from the Edmonton Sun addresses the mood of Half-Blood Prince, and how different it will be from Deathly Hallows. Producer David Heyman said that humor in the sixth film will be “slightly warmer,” but Radcliffe noted he can't wait to get to the more darker tone of the seventh and final film.
