Emma Watson and Jason Isaacs from the Harry Potter movies appeared this past Sunday at the Empire Awards in London and both spoke with Film Focus on current filming, Mike Newell and briefly about Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
Emma on working with British director Mike Newell:
He's a fantastic director and he's just a really, really lovely man. He's taught me a lot, he really has. What's lovely is that he's a real actor's director. He really cares about the acting which, from my point of view, is fantastic.
Emma goes on to mention that she isn't even thinking about the next film as it takes eleven months to shoot and plays down rumors that Goblet of Fire will be her last stating that she is "growing up with the character."
Mr. Isaacs discusses that all of his scenes are mostly with Ralph Fiennes: "It's a tour de force; a real performance and joy to sit back and watch." He also mentions that he hasn’t been signed to star in Order of the Phoenix and that the script hasn’t even been written yet.
