Helen McCrory talks about director David Yates' work, the end of filming, as well as the table read for the second part of 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows'.
Bringing updates to the movie adaptation of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows", actress Helen McCrory talked to Rotten Tomatoes from the set of Noel Clarke's "188.8.131.52". The actress who plays Narcissa Malfoy in the series opened up about what director David Yates will offer among other issues.
"I think with these next two films, he's looking at this character [Harry] becoming a man," the 41-year-old explained on what she believes Yates will serve on the plate for the seventh adaptation. "And that again, is quite an epic story. That's Ulysses. Rites of passage. It's exactly what Noel Clarke did, in a way, with Kidulthood. We still watch those stories, whether they're set in Hogwarts or New Cross."
Beside talking about Yates, McCrory also revealed that a table read for "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II" took place on Monday, October 5. "You don't know what to expect until you get there," she noted. "Something written down on paper could be completely different on the screen. On Monday we're just going to sit down with various people around a table."
As for ending the filming for the series, she had this to say, "We finish in April and it does feel different on set actually." She went on, "Some people have been doing it for 10, 11 years. It's part of their lives. So although I've just joined them at the end, a lot of people have a huge emotional commitment to it. There are children that have grown up with the people on the set, like the directors and the costume designers backstage. It's a very big occasion for those people."
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows", the seventh and final book of "Harry Potter" series will be made into two movies, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" and "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II". "Part I" is due for November 19, 2010 release in both U.S. and U.K., whereas "Part II" has been set for July 15, 2011 release. Both will see Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson reprising their roles.
