Yates talks Potter series, finale with Vanity Fair
Director David Yates recently spoke with Vanity Fair, where he discusses the decision to split Deathly Hallows, the challenge of adding an additional scene in Half-Blood Prince, as well as the series in general. When asked about the task of having to please millions of fans:
“It’s a very difficult juggling act but you just do your very best to make the film as in-the-moment as possible and you have to make certain choices, which are difficult at times, which just make that adaptation fit more into that cinematic experience in the theater.”
On knowing he will have directed the majority of Potter films:
“I’m really cool about that. It sort of raises the bar somewhat when I leave Potter and I move on and start doing other stuff.”
Thanks to Tom for sending this in!
