Daniel Radcliffe, the actor who claimed his fame through his depiction of the famous by wizard Harry Potter, opens up on kissing Ginny Weasley and Dumbledore's funeral in 'Half-Blood Prince'.
Having been sharing bits about Harry Potter's relationship with Ginny Weasley in earlier interview, Daniel Radcliffe opened up more about "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince". Quoted by Entertainment Weekly, the young actor who played the boy wizard in the "Harry Potter" series straight from the beginning shared on the kissing scene with Ginny's depicter, Bonnie Wright and on Dumbledore's funeral.
Of the kissing scene, he teased, "Harry's got a real thing for her, and that is slightly odd, because when we met, I was 11 and she was 9, and she was only ever Ron's little sister. But that all changed, and here we are snogging." Meanwhile, on the filming of Dumbledore's funeral, the 19-year-old claimed that it wasn't easy since it took on more of an Irish wake, explaining "Because there's a lot of people there, it's one of those things that takes on a party atmosphere."
Following Harry Potter in his sixth year at Hogwarts, "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" tells the time the threat to the wizarding world by the evil dark wizard Lord Voldemort grows even stronger by day. Directed by "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" helmer David Yates, it stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Michael Gambon, Alan Rickman and many others. Initially set to be released on November 21, it has been pushed back to see a U.K. and U.S. release on July 17, 2009.
