The French publication One Magazine has posted a fantastic interview with Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson about filming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. French Harry Potter site Harry Potter Forever has posted a translation of the interview. First, let’s hear what Dan has to say about filming the somewhat infamous Butt Nekkid Scene, aka Silver Doe.

“In the Deathly Hallows, you’ll see Harry as you never saw him before ! For example, I shot a scene where i’m entirely naked. When I read the script, I thought that I would carry underwears but no ! I’ve already done it for Equus so it wasn’t so difficult. I’m wondering how people will react, even if any things will be hidden in the screen!”

Next, Dan talked about filming the Seven Potters scene:

“Recently, we’ve finished a scene in which I had difficulties. It’s the 7 Potter’s scene ! We had to shoot a take where I was a different Harry instead of the other actors. It was fun, but very hard, because sometimes, I forgot who I had to be … That made me crazy!”

Emma chimed in and talked about kissing these two characters:

“To kiss Rupert in front of cameras will stay the strangest experience for me, since I’ve played in Harry Potter. Him and I was frightened about this scene, and would like to do it quickly. But the hardest is coming … I have to kiss Dan! It’s a scene where Ron imagine a kiss between Harry and Hermione.”

Last, but not least, Rupert talked about filming some pretty demanding scenes, physically:

“We shot a lot of physical scenes. For Daniel, filming was very complicated. But he never complained … When he became sick because of filming conditions, he was ok and he never complained …”
