In yet another new interview with the LA Times, producer David Heyman reflects on the Harry Potter film series, where he even reveals a photo from the day Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint met for the first time over nine years ago, which can be seen here, courtesy of Snitch Seeker.
â€œThey are not my own children, obviously, but they are like nephews and nieces or perhaps godchildren, and I feel really protective of them,â€ Heyman said as he sat in his office at the converted aviation factory here that serves as the movie set for the â€œPotterâ€ series. â€œHere, look at this one â€” this is a photo taken the day the boys met. No oneâ€™s really seen this before. They were taking a little walk together to get know one another...â€
David talks about Dan, Rupert, and Emma Watson, and how well he hopes they will do in the future; his plans post-Potter; the Harry Potter theme park; the Half-Blood Prince delay; and the atmosphere around Leavesden studios.Â
â€œI know they all will have great success in whatever they choose to do,â€ Heyman said at his Watford office, putting away his photo collection. â€œEmma is astonishingly bright. She is radiant and relaxed. Dan is extremely focused on his acting, and I have the fortune too to read his poetry and short stories, and there are some major poets who have written the most glowing, supportive things about his work. And Rupert â€” Rupert is the most natural comedian of the bunch. I think that he is like an old person in a young personâ€™s body. He is a wonderful eccentric, a distinct original.â€
"This place is like going off to school,â€ he said of the cavernous Watford site, which houses high-tech movie gear in a somewhat moldering old fortress. â€œIt even smells like school. Thereâ€™s concrete stairs; it smells a little bit bad, like a dormitory. The school is falling apart a bit; three people have been hired full time to patch the roof. The set may fall apart the day weâ€™re done with it, and maybe thatâ€™s the way it should be.â€
