CBBC Newsround has two new interviews with Chris Rankinopens in new window (Percy Weasley) and Devon Murrayopens in new window (Seamus Finnegan) from the Harry Potter movies in which they both discuss the release of the movie, attending the UK premiere and their favorite scenes.

According to Chris his favorite scene is:

When people used to ask me that question I always used to say the scene on the stair case when the Fat Lady's portrait is slashed open by Sirius Black. I really did enjoy doing that one.

But I was watching it online the other day, and there's 10 minutes of behind-the-scenes footage on the internet and I saw a scene I'd forgotten I had filmed!

It's where Sirius Black comes into the Gryffindor dormitory and wakes up Ron in bed and he's screaming. It was quite fun as I was lying there looked annoyed. We spent all day filming in our pyjamas, it was fun. It was a slightly different scene, a bit more wacky, more comedy.

Devon’s favorite scene description:

We're all in the boys' dorm room at the beginning of the film. It's the first night at Hogwarts and you get to see Harry Potter having some fun. We're all throwing sweets around and every time we eat one we turn into different animals.
