Weasley twins on ‘Half-Blood Prince’ and ‘Potter’ phenomonenon Weasley twins on ‘Half-Blood Prince’ and ‘Potter’ phenomonenon

James and Oliver PhelpsIn yet another feature piece in the LA Times, James and Oliver Phelps (Fred and George Weasley in the Harry Potter films) speak about working on Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, director David Yates, and bringing the Weasley twins to life.

Both James and Oliver agreed that the joke shop scenes were their favourite to film in Half-Blood Prince, noting that, “The crew built an exquisite set, and there are a lot of special effects involved to simulate the magical pops and explosions. It’s a great scene. ”

The twins also debunked the belief that they are often mistaken for one another.

MG: Are you often confused for each other like the Weasley twins are in the movie?

OP: It’s funny that you should ask that, because we rarely are. When we first went in for casting calls and got the part, the crew was very methodical. They said to me “You’re George,” and to James, “You’re Fred” and I guess it stuck because no one ever really got confused.
