John Hurt talks Deathly Hallows torture and franchise success

In a new interview, John Hurt – the actor who portrays Ollivander – talks about his time with the Harry Potter series:

The franchise:

It’s very strange really. I did the first one and thought that would be it. Nobody knew whether it was going to be successful. When I came back last December to do the last two, suddenly everybody’s grown up. Daniel’s 20. It’s very peculiar.

Potter fans:

They’re crazy about Ollivander – they love him! I’m not sure they will when they see the next one when he’s being tortured. I’ve never been pestered for an autograph. I get asked – usually by parents because the children are a bit too shy to ask. But I’ve never been pestered; I have a very good class of fan.
