While promoting his upcoming feature Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief, director Chris Columbus reminisced about the first two Harry Potter films, which he helmed, as well as his young stars. A new behind-the-scenes image of Chris, Dan Radcliffe, and Rupert Grint on the set of Sorcerer's Stone can be seen here, thanks to SS.

"Having done the 'Home Alone' pictures, I realized that we needed to start casting kids based on their families and the security that their families could give them at this particular time in their lives -- that was particularly the case with the "Potter" kids, who were about to become three of the most famous kids in the world," Columbus said. "So David Heyman and I made sort of a pact that we were gonna cast the families as well as the kids. And in interviewing Dan’s family and Rupert’s family and Emma’s family, they surrounded themselves with a really solid group of people. Their parents were very supportive, their parents were there for them all the time."
