A MONTH OF MAGIC: Hero Complex is counting down to the Nov. 19 release of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1” — the penultimate film in the history-making “Potter” franchise — with exclusive interviews, photos, videos and reports from the set. Today’s post: Dan Radcliffe explains his excitement about the new project. If you’re desperate to see “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1,” you’re not the only one. Meet Daniel Radcliffe, a “Potter” fan who had an emotional response to the “Hallows” trailer and someone counting down the days to the film’s New York premiere and Nov. 19 release.
“When I saw the trailer I almost wept. I was so happy,” Radcliffe said in a recent phone interview.
“When you’re on a film for that long, shooting for months and months, you forget half of what you’ve done and you lose sight of it all,” Radcliffe said. “It’s such a long process that you start to worry and wonder if what you’ve done is going to meet expectations. Sometimes you lose sight. You don’t know what you’ve done and what you’ve got. That’s where I was when I saw the trailer. I saw it and I went, ‘Oh God, it’s going to be great. We’ve done it. We’ve done well and it’s going to be great.’ It was such a joyous moment. They showed it to us on the last day [of principal photography in June] and we were just thrilled. We let out this amazing cheer. I’m like everybody else now: I’m desperate to see the film. And I’m desperate for fans to see what we’ve done.”
