As you all know, Matt attended the Diagon Alley Media & VIP Preview last week. Today we rounded up all the interviews with Matt that have been released so far. If you notice any that are missing feel free to send them over!
‘My character never really went to Gringotts, which is why I’ve enjoyed it so much because I never really got to go onto the set.
‘I never even saw it, so when I got to the bank today that was the first time and it’s pretty special.
‘I don’t even know why I’m here,’ he joked. ‘I’ve just come down for a free ride really.’
Where would your characters spend time in Universal Studios? Neville would just get lost. Or maybe it would be Jurassic Park because there is lots of foliage around and he likes foliage.
What wizarding power do you wish you had in real life? ‘Accio,’ because I’m a lazy koala bear, and I would love to use spells to get things.
If your Harry Potter characters had to get Muggle jobs, what would they be? A traffic warden, giving tickets out … parking tickets. It’s just a little bit of authority but not enough responsibility. (Evanna strongly disagreed, and insisted Neville would have been a baker.)
What are your favorite parts of the new addition to the theme park? Gringotts Wizarding Bank. It was a set that I’m unfamiliar with, because I wasn’t apart of the scenes shot there. So when I went into Gringotts at Diagon Alley, that was my first experience with it. I got to experience it like the fans, and it sort of blew me away.
What part of the Wizarding World theme park most greatly resembles the sets for the movies? The locations created [in The Wizarding World theme park] are more accurate than our sets were. Our sets had a lot of cameras and facades, but here, it’s completely immersive. You can go down the alleyways and go into the shops. They painstakingly went over the movies and the books…it’s absolutely amazing how so much of it is so accurate.
