Richard Harris: I read the scenes with them and they read back and when we had finished the reading, the little boy, who plays Ron Weasley, turned to me and said, “Mr. Harris?” and I said, “Yes?” “That was quite a good reading. I think you’ll be quite good in this part.” An eleven year old, can you believe it?
What has been your personal favourite line from one of your movies?
Rupert Grint: There was one line I said, but they never actually used it. It was a weird line from the 5th Harry Potter, and someone was trying to start a fight with Harry, and I was standing up for him and said, “Do you want a fistful of Weasley?”
Emma: I am taller than you or I will make myself taller than you.
Daniel: Okay. [Rupert laughs] Why are you so determined to embarrass me?
Emma: I am not determined to embarrass you.
Daniel: Oh yeah.
Emma: I’m determined to be taller than you are.
Daniel: Same thing.
WHEN HARRY MET RON.
Like a proud father, David Heyman, the producer of the Harry Potter films, reached for a box of photographs when a visitor asked him about the young stars of the history-making franchise.
“They are not my own children, obviously, but they are like nephews and nieces or perhaps godchildren, and I feel really protective of them,” Heyman said as he sat in his office at the converted aviation factory here that serves as the movie set for the Potter series.
“Here, look at this one — this is a photo taken the day the boys met. No one’s really seen this before. They were taking a little walk together to get know one another…”
The black-and-white snapshot showed Potter stars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint as chubby-cheeked adolescents strolling side by side, their eyes cast down to their shadows. Heyman took the photo in 2000.
