Post Videos: Matt Lewis & Warwick Davis talk Deathly Hallows filming at Midlands MCM Expo

Videos from the panel discussion with Matthew Lewis and Warwick Davis at the Midlands MCM Expo, which took place last weekend, have been released. Throughout the segment, the pair revealed:

• Matt stated that most of Deathly Hallows: Part I is near completion, and that they are finishing up on the final battle sequences with "Voldemort and the Death Eaters" at the present time.

• Matt mentioned how Neville gained insight from Harry about becoming a leader in Deathly Hallows, and running a resistance.

• Matt says that the Harry Potter costar he's been most in awe of whilst working against was Alan Rickman when he, Matt, was younger; and Gary Oldman and Ralph Fiennes this year (watching him work was "hypnotic" and that he couldn't take his eyes off the way Ralph moved on set as Voldemort).

• When Matt was about 9-10 years old, and as a fan of the book series, he said he used to dress up as Harry Potter at home.

• Matt said his favourite movie to film was Order of the Phoenix, because Neville had more responsibility and there was more emotion, as well as the action, where he "felt like Tom Cruise."

• Both Matt and Warwick said that Deathly Hallows might eclipse the previous films.

• Warwick said that the fourth, Goblet of Fire, was his favourite because of his part in the Yule Ball with the Weird Sisters, where it felt like they were in the midst of a rock concert.

• In terms of pranks, Matt remembered a staff work party that the cast and crew attended, where Alfie Enoch's phone fell out of his pocket, which he didn't give back for two months. Alfie went on holiday for quite a while, and when he got back home, Matt showed him the phone and asked if he was missing something. Alfie thanked him for the phone, though to this day doesn't know that Matt nicked it. Warwick recalled the fart machine put in the Great Hall set in Prisoner of Azkaban, placed under Daniel Radcliffe's pillow during the final take, which led to some rather amusing results.

• Warwick said he loves working in the Great Hall and getting to do magic.

• Matt said that as long as he's doing Harry Potter, he doesn't have to grow up yet. He can be a big kid and still do proper work.

• Warwick said that he gets most of his information about Flitwick from fans as there isn't much revealed in the books or even the film scripts.

• Matt said that Neville would be a badger Animagi; Warwick noted that Flitwick would be a gerbil.

• Matt and Warwick said that the worst thing about filming the series is getting up early, but otherwise there isn't much to complain about (the food and people are great, added Warwick).

• Warwick and Matt both stated that they haven't finished filming Deathly Hallows (remember that Matt is currently filming night sequences at Swinley Forest this week).

• Warwick said that he hasn't gotten any souvenirs from the Harry Potter set, but his daughter received a Gringotts coin from Sorcerer's Stone from one of the producers; Matt said that he got to keep the Gryffindor sword he broke in Deathly Hallows, as well as a set of fake ears and teeth he wore in the earlier films.

• Warwick's favourite spell is Wingardium Leviosa; Matt's are Expelliarmus and Stupefy.

The contrast between them is so funny! Matt's grown so much.

Warwick's an amazing actor. I've loved him since Star Wars.

I love that pair, they're great together!
As for the Gringotts coins, I have two galleons (though not from the set, I got 'em when I was about ...8?) One is still in the package, the other is out of the package and all rusted.
But yeah, Tom Cruise? Bleh, forget Tom. What about James Bond, Matt?
