Can you tell us what it was like to film the Boggart scene in PoA?
It was really cool, not only the bit with Alan Rickman but the rest of the scene is very funny too.
How different is Michael Gambon’s portrayal of Dumbledore compared to the great Richard Harris?
Richard Harris was perfect for Dumbledore, there is no denying that. Michael Gambon from what I have seen has done a great job in keeping the magic of Dumbledore alive.
Was the atmosphere on the PoA set any different from the first two movies?
It wasn’t different from the second but it was from the first. After the first film everybody knew each other and it was easier, you could relax more, which allowed you to do your job better. But all three were excellent to work on.
I’ve got to ask – how was it seeing Alan Rickman in the dress with the handbag?
Hilarious, no other way to describe it. He was really great with it too, very funny. He was still really intimidating, though.
