Post Exclusive: SnitchSeeker interview with David Heyman, Imelda Staunton return confirmed

As we told you earlier today, SnitchSeeker had the opportunity to interview David Heyman last night about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. We spoke with the producer about Rupert and Emma's kissing scene, Bill Weasley, young Dumbledore and Dolores Umbridge, among other things.

You can listen to the interview here (sorry, the Apple Store in Santa Monica was loud and hectic), or read the transcription below.



Quote:
SnitchSeeker.com: Dan Radcliffe said he wasn't present when Rupert and Emma did their kiss scene. Was that deliberate – so he wouldn't distract them?
David Heyman: No.

SS: Harry's not in the scene?
Heyman: No.

SS: So it's not like it is in the book? [Heyman shakes his head no]
Quote:
SS: Did you do anything to help Rupert and Emma calm their nerves for that scene?
Heyman: No, I think they both were quite nervous. They've worked together, they've known each other for so long, so it was a big deal. It's like kissing a really good friend yours, you'd think, "Hmmm, that's a little strange." But I think that it works really well. In a way, tenses them, which they weren't before. You want that awkwardness, and they throw themselves into it. It really works. It works fantastically.
Quote:
SS: Harry Ron and Hermione argue quite a bit while camping. How did you prepare the actors for that change in their relationship?
Heyman: Well, you know, it's interesting because the kids are growing up as actors. They have many more experiences now then they had when Christopher Columbus was working with them. They're much more mature, they've had experiences in life outside of Potter, they've had experiences acting outside of Potter. They've all had friends they've gotten along with and friends that they've fought with. And so I think they just brought much more of their own feelings and experiences to it.

One of the ways David Yates works is he really engages them. He doesn't tell them what to do, but he makes them very much a part of creating the role. For example, David has lunch with Dan Radcliffe once a week to talk about what they're doing. It takes quite a close and intimate relationship all three of them have with the director. They're too mature now to say, "Go do this," or just leave them alone. They want to engage.

It wasn't that difficult. They're grown adults … well not grown adults, they're 19-20 years old. And at that age, you've fought with your friends. So they're used to it, and people who you care about, too. They really care about each other. So in the end they were able to bring a lot of their own experiences to the table.
Quote:
SS: Since Deathly Hallows is the first time we see Bill Weasley, how will he be introduced?
Heyman: Well, we know it's his wedding. So, he's introduced at his wedding and we express it's Bill and Fleur's wedding so you know it's Bill Weasley and it's at the Weasley house. So you know pretty much who he is when you see him and Fleur. It's pretty clear in the end.
Quote:
SS: Has he been attacked by a werewolf?
Heyman: Yes he has.

SS: And how's that explained, or is it?
Heyman: It's understood.
Quote:
SS: How are you going to handle Dumbledore's backstory, as it was mainly Harry reading Rita's book?
Heyman: We have Hermione reading parts of the book and we also have a character at the wedding who talks about Dumbledore's past. There's Elphias Doge, who also has a more favorable opinion of Dumbledore. Hermione finds Rita Skeeter's book and she reads the book to them.

SS: Is there going to be an actor playing young Dumbledore?
Heyman: Yes.
Quote:
SS: When will a formal casting announcement be made?
Heyman: Eventually.
Quote:
SS: Is Imelda Staunton going to return as Umbridge?
Heyman: Yes.

SS: Did you talk to her how much more evil her character has become?
Heyman: We haven't yet, but we will. She's familiar with the book.

I thik the kissing scene is on the chamber of secrets because it was only r/hr and I read somewhere that they were maybe going to film something in the chamber of secrets so idk but i guess that will still be cool

I CAN'T WAIT FOR TOMORROW!

Default The Kiss

Though I've not been thrilled at some of the changes from books to screen, this one thrills me. I think it's wonderful that Harry won't be there. I feel there's a much better chance for a more romantic scene between Ron and Hermione then.

Also, off topic I'd like to add that the films are looking vastly improved since David Yates took over the helm. I was very happy he stayed on.

I have mixed feelings about Harry not being there. But I love the Ron and Hermione relationship so much, I think it's good they have their time alone. So I guess this change is good

I'm glad that Bill's wedding seems close to the book. I just wonder why they don't at least mention his engagement with Fleur in HBP - that way it'd be easier to introduce him in DH..

Poo! So not looking forward to Rupert getting all kissy-wissy with Emma on stage.

But, we've got a long way ahead of us so maybe I'll ease into the idea. =/

*sniffs* I like Harry's line..

"OI! There's a war going on here!"
*sniffs again* But I think DH is going to be awesome and slighly different from the book, which is what gave the films their flavours.

Maybe they will use the REPARO spell at the Weasley's House. :-)

We all know (because of the trailers) that in HP6 movie, The Weasleys House (aka The Burrow) was destroyed by the Death Eaters, or maybe the damage is not that big as i think...

That's going to be a fantastic movie. Too bad they're not sticking with how Ron and Hermione kiss. That would have been great to have Harry there when they did.

I dont like Harry not being there for the kiss, but I suppose Yates wants to make the film his own.

I have to agree. I really love what David Yates has brought to the franchise and I'm SO excited to see how Deathly Hallows will turn out.

Looking forward to Hr/R kiss.... but do you know somebody, will there be the Harry/Ginny kiss too? If yes, I hope it´ll be better than their HBP kiss...

I'm rather curious myself at how you're just going to understand Bill was attacked by Fenrir, seeing as they didn't even mention he's a werewolf.

Hmmm...I don't know how to judge how well they'll be able to do DH justice. I thought Yates did awesome on OoTP, but not so hot on HPB (too much Twilight-esque, blatant teenage romantic drama that became more central than the actual plot of finding memories!). The Hermione/Ron thing is important for sure, but I hope it's not as sappy as it was in the HPB film.
