“I can’t say I was. I wasn’t not a fan. I hadn’t read any of the books or anything. I read The Goblet of Fire when I was doing the other film, and I really liked that. I got through it in about two days. I’d say I’m a pretty big fan now.”

“I knew the casting director from another movie which I did, and they wanted to see me for this part, but I was doing another movie over the casting period, so I ended up seeing Mike Newell and Mary Selway and Fiona Weir – who were casting at the time – before anyone else was seen for casting. And then, I went to do this other movie, and then the day I came back… I got a call back and basically, that’s what happened.”

“Probably Harry. I think. Not being arrogant or anything. I just think it’s a really intricate and it’s an amazing part. I think also when you don’t really have the opportunity to be guaranteed seven films when you’re growing up during the filming.”

“I was actually having nightmares about it for months in advance, I went to Jasper Conran and picked out the most ridiculous, extravagant clothes – they looked really good in the shop. And then I put them on and I thought: you look such an idiot.”

“I’ve been using the fan websites as I was acting it, because they know so much about the books, and it’s really helpful as a resource.”

“Well, I haven’t actually died “live” yet but I’ve been dead a few times. It’s strange, but it’s quite sort of relaxing. You feel like a bit of a therapist, because everyone’s giving you all their grief, and you’re just lying there listening. Yeah, it was quite nice, like no pressure after a couple weeks. I enjoyed it.”

“I think the most embarrassing part of that was just the normal dancing. When the rock band comes. I think there was two days where the crew was like, “Just dance, just dance.”. So, you can’t, in a club or whatever…That was really awkward.”

“As Dan was doing school at the time I was just sitting by myself for ages and at the time I wanted to be taken really serious as an actor so I used to just sit around just drinking coffee all day and trying to look really intense.”

“I think the yule ball is more attractive to the girls who read it, I never really thought “Oh I get to go to the ball!”

“There were a couple of times where you think you’re swimming towards a guy with a breathing apparatus and then you find its just some thing in the water and you’re like (imitates freaking out) and then you just know what to do and they film your stupid face just screaming underwater and then everyone starts laughing and its just like, ahh, great!”

“We had to do this scene looking like heroes diving into the lake. they had a stand-in doing perfect dives on the first take. Then Stan, Clemence, And I tried, but none of us could dive in right, and we all looked really stupid.”

“Then I got a call the next day from the assistant director saying that they were putting me on a personal training programme. I thought that would be pretty cool, because it would make me take it seriously. It was run by one of the stunt team, who are the most absurdly fit guys inthe world. I can’t even do 10 press ups. I did about three weeks of that, and in the end I think he got so bored of trying to force me to do it that he wrote it all down so that I could do it at home.”

“That is quite difficult. In the book and also my first introduction of the script is like “an absurdly handsome 17-year-old” and it kind of puts you off a little bit, when you’re trying to act, and you’re trying to get good angles to look good looking and stuff. “

“I hope I’m not that close to my character, I hate him, I used to hate everbody like Cedric in my school.”

“I sort of identify with him in a couple of ways. Generally, I am quite pleasant. I think he is too, and I think that is one of the basic similarities. Let’s see, I’ve got blond hair, I am relatively sporty. But, I think he is a better person than me.”

“I was in a trance the whole way through it. The day before I was just sitting in Leicester Square, happily being ignored by everyone. Then suddenly strangers are screaming your name. Amazing.”

“I think he’s a pretty cool character. He’s not really a complete cliché of the good kid in school. He’s just quiet. He is actually just a genuinely good person, but he doesn’t make a big deal about it or anything.”

“It’s really stupid; you’d think I’m really egotistical. But I think that’s the most daunting part about it – it’s much scarier than meeting Voldemort!”

“I liked the maze part. The maze was really fun. A lot of the stunts are very contrived, and someone’s practised them a hundred times and you have to get it perfect otherwise it’s pointless doing it. You’re not gonna be in the right shot or anything. But in the maze, a lot of it was on steady cam – which is just a guy running around with a camera – and all the hedges moved. So me and Dan were basically chasing each other around and punching each other, with these hedges squeezing us. And the camera would just follow you around, so you could basically do whatever you wanted. It was really fun. There were lots of cuts and bruises afterwards and it felt like you were doing a proper job!”

“I had a lot of diving. I think I was doing the underwater stuff for about two months. And, so I think I did about three weeks of learning how to scuba dive. You learn how to do it in a little bathtub-sized thing with all the stuff on, and then on the first day of shooting in the tank, you have to hold your breath and there’s nothing there! And the tank is 60 feet deep and you’re holding your breath for about a minute and a half. Probably not actually! Maybe about 30 seconds.”

“The girl dumped Harry Potter because she can’t get over me! I think it’s great! The relationship that I have with Cho is so innocent. I think I hold her hand once!”
