In a recent interview with the Harry Potter fansites, Daniel Radcliffe divulged details on his experiences with the final films. The following transcript has information pertaining to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 only, with details on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 coming in the next few months.
[HPANA] Question: We've heard that Part 1 is going to be more of a road movie and more different than the other Harry Potter films. Was it a different experience playing a different Harry? Dan: Absolutely, it's a really different film. It's bizarre in a way. Funnily enough, I don't think we were aware how different it was at the time of filming. At the time, we were just doing scenes like we would do any other scene. We weren't really thinking about how different it was going to be. But then when I saw, for instance, the trailer and some of the extra footage I've seen, it just struck me how very different it's going to be because we've never seen these characters in this different complex before. I think it's one of the things that makes the first film so exciting. You see these characters stripped of their comfortable, safe surroundings and suddenly just out in the wilderness together. The first one is being described as a road movie because they are being so exposed and it's such a different situation, you learn a lot more about how those characters function in that situatoin and it's a real exploration of the relationship between them. And the flaws in all their personalities. Particularly Harry and Ron - I mean Hermione as always is the voice of reason - but Harry and Ron do sort of fall apart. So yeah, it has a very different feel to it and I think hopefully people will be very excited by that.
