At last week’s London press junket Dan Radcliffe revealed that the epilogue, featured at the end of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, will be reshot at Leavesden Studios at Christmas.
The original shoot took place at King’s Cross station in London earlier this year, though both Radcliffe and Emma Watson agreed that the two-day shoot was rushed.
Says Radcliffe, “I think we made it very hard on ourselves because we shot it at King’s Cross for real. This time we’ll be shooting it in Leavesden [Studios] on a set. To have to rush that sequence, and it’s such an important sequence, is not something that any of us want to do. I think when we revisit certain moments we’ll be trying to keep it paced slowly”.
Dan also added that, “We just pushed ourselves too far too quickly to get that all done at King’s Cross when time constraints are so massive. It’s a train station and people actually need to use that platform. We made it very hard on ourselves so I think we’re going to revisit it and have a slightly slower, more measured pace next time”.
Emma Watson, commenting on the original shoot, noted, “[it] was stressful. You can imagine we stopped trains literally so we could do the scene. We only had two days to shoot it and we needed so much more time than that”.
“We have reshoots at Christmas, so it’s not over yet. It’s not over yet guys!”
