Daniel Radcliffe spoke from the set of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows about a scene in the films' predecessor, Half-Blood Prince, which redefined how he envisioned and portrayed Harry, as well as the demand in shooting the Seven Potters sequence in the first installment.

He added: "It was when I was underwater and I had to hold on to a rope and pull myself down.

"Then I had to let go of the rope and burst through the surface to be surrounded by a wall of fire. At the very moment of doing that, I thought no matter how long my career went on I would never get the chance to do a shot like that again - bursting through water into a flaming lake.

"It is very cool to play a hero. So this year I have started to revel more in the boys' own adventure aspect of it all."

He said: "That scene is going to be pretty fantastic.

"Obviously people will realise that it's a visual effect but normally when you have one person talking to another version of himself it is pretty obvious how it has been done. In this scene though it's great - arms are overlapping and it looks fantastic.

"We did 96 takes for this one shot. We had to do each shot seven different times with all the Harrys standing in different places.

"That is the first really cool bit of magic in the first part of the film. It was so well thought out and well done."
