David thewlis and natalia tena dating
Tom, can I ask you about one particular moment in the final film when Draco crosses the battlements to join the Death Eaters and he hesitates before he goes. TF: He only did it once out of the 50 times we did it, and show that to a UK audience and it’s seen as pure menace, like, what’s he going to do, is he going to [mimes violent stabbing] but in America it was hilarious, like it was a huge joke.WD: The way his body language was, he did it in a really odd way.My actual last day was just a very quick pick-up shot for second unit, a night shot for Dom Fysh, who was the first AD on the second unit, and he gave us a very brief speech and I saluted and off I went before I started blubbing like a five-year-old girl.Natalia Tena: My first time on set I wasn’t actually filming because I was a new character.”, and we said no, so the casting director went off and popped her head in a meeting between David Heyman, Chris Columbus and JK Rowling and whispered for a bit, then came back and said “Right, James you’re Fred, and Oliver, you’re George.” JP: I like to think they sat around a boardroom like this and it was like a huge meeting. JW: Well yes, of course, because we had them baptised. WD: Absolutely, they were in the last film as well.Annabel was about three when I started on these films and Harrison was born in 2003, so he’s grown up while I’ve been doing this. WD: In Gringott’s bank, you see a couple of little tiny goblins in the establishing shot of Gringott’s pulling a little cart, they’re the tiniest goblins.I was doing a shot for second unit in the vault as Griphook and I finished and thought, well, that’s me done, but I’ll go to first unit and just say goodbye.
So I went round the set [mimes jaw dropping] and I couldn’t get over the size of it, it was that sort of [sharp intake of breath], so I wasn’t filming on that day but just on the side lines. I think the nice thing about the book is that she left it to interpretation, it’s not really answered I don’t think, why any of the softer side of the Malfoys do what they do. I think David Yates explained it as when you hear your Dad’s voice, you’re not really interested, but when you hear your Mum’s you can’t help but go.
Tom Felton: It was anti-climactic wasn’t it, on the last day? TF: That’s your lot everyone, thanks very much, see you. It was the end but it wasn’t like a full stop, it was like a comma.
The films were done, but were other things to do next.
TF: Sometimes he’d be halfway through a take and in his head he would just start from the beginning again.
Go on then, which is the question you all get asked the most about your time on Potter?
Then the last day we were shooting on one of the stages in the turrets. He was just standing outside with an umbrella and it was absolutely hammering it down, and I remember looking back seeing this car driving us there and he wasn’t sure how he was getting back, he’s probably still there now driving around Yorkshire!
