The Best Bit of Deathly Hallows Part 2

You see, thanks to their Harry Potter-filled new issue of Empire Magazine, out tomorrow, we’ve got some amazing quotes from Julie Walters and Helena Bonham Carter about that scene. You know, the duel. The duel with the… “b-bomb”.

Arguably one of the most anticipated scenes in the whole series, let alone the last movie, it will see Molly Weasley squaring off with Bellatrix Lestrange after the latter attacks the former’s daughter, Ginny.

Helena Bonham Carter herself, though not so preoccupied with that line, explained just how hazardous the whole fight was to shoot: “You should warm up before wand-fighting; that’s what Julie Walters and I discovered when we were duelling each other. We were crippled after that scene. Duelling going backwards on a table is tricky without falling off. Which, of course, I did! I did say, ‘Can someone stand there and keep and eye out?’ But there were people standing all around and not one of them warned me.”

“Bonham Carter is Jekyll and Hyde”

Tom Felton has admitted that he is always “really taken aback” when working with Helena Bonham Carter.

The actor, Draco Malfoy in the Harry Potter series, described his co-star as “the complete Jekyll and Hyde”.

“It’s all very different when you’re working together, but when you’re outside work you always think, ‘I wonder if they still have a clue who I am’,” he told Empire. “I’ve learnt a lot from her. She’s the complete Jekyll and Hyde, if you will: she’s the sweetest British lady and slightly in her own world and then when the cameras roll she goes berserk, which is amazing.

“It’s brilliant to watch. I could name more: every single one of those actors has been incredibly nice to me, which makes a big difference.”

Discussing Draco’s journey through the series to the upcoming Deathly Hallows: Part Two, Felton remarked that he hopes the audience will have some sympathy for the young Death Eater.

“It’s a really hard writing task: the idea is to spend six years getting the audience to dislike this character, to certainly have no empathy for him whatsoever, and then within two years to show how the bully is treated at home and why he is like that,” he said. “You see him get put in a few unfortunate circumstances so I’m hoping by the end of it you really feel quite bad for the kid.

“Daniel and I have often talked about it as being two sides of a coin: Harry with all the great influences, look what he can achieve, and Draco with the exact opposite and trying to fight the fact that his parents couldn’t be a worse influence. Let alone Auntie Bella and everyone else around the table!”
