The actor presented three film projects and gave an interview in front of a live audience. "Rickfan", a TLC news correspondent, gave a brief summary of the Potter-related items discussedopens in new window:

[Alan] was asked about acting with CGI, and described how difficult it is, acting to a blue screen, especially when filming the stands shots for the Quidditch matches.... He blamed CGI for making the actors sit around all day eating sandwiches, so that his close fitting costume became very tight.

He also said that the boggart in the wardrobe scene has been shot. He shot his first scene for POA in February, and his last one only last month.
