I came back from DragonCon this year with a bunch of interviews (thanks largely to my diligent cameraman Blake Garris), including a few very special ones, mainly special in the fact that on one or two of them we were literally the only interviews those actors did. Now I don't know for sure if James and Oliver Phelps did other interviews at the show, but I'm pretty sure they were too busy for the most part. Our buddy John Alcantar with Entertainment Legends hooked us up with some one-on-one (or should we say one-on-two?) time with the two talented actors who have played Fred and George Weasley in every HARRY POTTER film, and will soon be seen again in HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS Part I and II. I got a chance to discuss with the twins what it's been like being a part of the hugely popular franchise, and also what their various experiences have been with meeting their passionate fans. We just posted the new trailer for DEATHLY HALLOWS Part I, so this should make a nice companion piece to go with that.
HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS Part I opens November 19, 2010
