The cast of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows were recently interviewed by BBC News about the last installments of the series, including the work regime and most significant plots and themes throughout.

Daniel Radcliffe spoke about Harry and Dumbledore's relationship, as well as the last six months' shoot:

The second part of this film is just... I hesitate to call it an action movie, but there is so much action.

"We've spent basically the last six months on set running. Doing nothing but running, it will really be amazing when it's finished, I hope."

The first half is expected in cinemas in November 2010, with the second part coming in 2011.

Dan also spoke to the BBC about the first Deathly Hallows film, saying: "It's pretty unrelenting. The first half of the film is going to be very emotional.

"The whole film is about faith and about how far can it be tested - Harry's faith in Dumbledore - how far can that be stretched."

New video interviews with Dan, Rupert Grint, and Tom Felton can be seen here; highlights are below.

Daniel Radcliffe - who has kept busy on both film and stage projects in between playing Harry - laughs off the idea that the rest of his life might be an anti-climax.

"No man, I've got kids to have yet!" he says excitedly, despite nursing a sore throat on the cold, cavernous film set at Leavesden Studios in Hertfordshire.

"They're going to keep me busy if I do - which I hope I do at some point. I'm not planning on it soon - that's one of the things I'm really looking forward to doing."

The 20-year-old adds: "What's been cool is that I've been here when a lot of people here have had kids while on the film, and I've seen the change it's made in their life and how amazing it is."

His co-star Rupert Grint, 21, who plays Ron Weasley, says he has no doubt that Harry Potter will be the "biggest thing" he will be involved with.

"I make the most of it and enjoy it," he says.

"It is quite scary when this all ends because we're stepping out into the real world - it is quite a bubble I suppose, we've had these films to do every year and it's become quite a routine.

"I'm definitely going to miss it. It's been a great 10 years. I am quite keen to move on and see what else is out there."

Bonnie Wright spoke about her future as an actor:

"Although it has been massive," she says, "personally I think a greater project is out there. That's what makes me keep working, knowing that there's this project out there that I'm yet to do."
