In a new interview, actor Daniel Radcliffe spoke about Half-Blood Prince, including his disappointment over the lack of darkness in the sixth film, and the humorous romantic scenes. He goes into detail about setting up for Deathly Hallows, especially the final battle at the end. The article also features a new photo of Dan taken by Dennys Ilic, which can be seen here, courtesy of Snitch Seeker.
Dan mentions how much he loves filming the darker elements of the Harry Potter series:
"My favourite stuff is always the dark stuff," he says. "When I read scripts for the first time that's what I always lean towards and it's what I want to see included - even more so in Harry Potter movies, because we need the films to appeal to adult audiences. In fact one of the things I was disappointed about with the sixth Harry Potter movie was that there wasn't so much of that element."
He voices his relief that a two-part Deathly Hallows allows for more of the story to be told, and the fact that less scenes will be cut:
"I'm very happy that the seventh book is being made as two films," notes Radcliffe, "because I was worried they would have to cut important scenes. For example in the fourth film you could cut out the house elf sub-plot and it doesn't affect the main story in any way. In the second film they cut out the Nearly Headless Nick Death Day Party. In fact that whole character has fallen by the wayside. The problem with doing that with the final book is that there is nothing that doesn't relate to the main story or drive it forward. There's not much you could cut. So we've given ourselves the room and opportunity to do it justice."
