Click "Read more" to read the highlights:
Ââ€¢ Dan said that he and Harry are alike with their curiosity, love of friends, etc. He also states that Harry hasn't taken any of Dan's characteristics from playing the character, but has learned from the experience of making the series and meeting all sorts of people (from set).
â€¢ Dan mentioned a rule he and Rupert shared, in that if they have a birthday and aren't on set for it, they won't receive a present.
â€¢ On Alan Rickman, David said he loved his eyebrows, while Dan loves his dry sense of humour.
â€¢ Dan loved Lupin as a Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher and even noted that David Thewlis gave him tutoring lessons on Twelfth Night.
â€¢ On Bellatrix: Dan thinks Bella is child-like and also evil. Dan stated that he's become a bit like Helena Bonham Carter's personal assistant on the set of Deathly Hallows, in that he's constantly picking up after her.
â€¢ Dan and David were gushing over the quality of the Half-Blood Prince Blu-ray (it was the first time Dan used it). Dan noted that Emma's version on Blu-ray is her only competition in terms of beauty.
â€¢ Tom Felton began filming Deathly Hallows at the end of the summer; he and Dan became good friends through Tom's girlfriend, Jade, who is one of Dan's best friends.
â€¢ On their favourite CGI sequences in Half-Blood Prince: David said it was the sixth movie's Inferi and cave set. Dan said one of his favourite scenes to film was the dragon chase in Goblet of Fire.
â€¢ Dan was asked if he would consider joining Twitter, but he said no. However, he does like the idea of it and interacting with fans. He said that being able to convey a thought in 140 characters or less would be a challenge for him.
â€¢ Dan and David spoke about the tiles in Tom Riddle's orphanage, noting that they are similar to those used for the Ministry of Magic.
â€¢ Choosing between Slughorn and Snape as a better Potions Master, they said that since Slughorn taught Snape, he would be better; Dan noted Harry's bias against Snape, and that he would prefer Slughorn more.
â€¢ For the birds used in the Vanishing Cabinet Draco uses in the Room of Requirement in Half-Blood Prince, Dan said it took him a few readings to figure out its significance.
â€¢ On Quidditch and flying on a broom, Dan said that no matter what, whether flying over London or past Dragons, the filming is exactly the same on the green-screen G-stage, and the pain is all the same. The pitch is just all CGI, so no significance there.
â€¢ On Deathly Hallows filming, Barron said that filming will end around late-spring early-summer, then there's the dubbing stage, and post-production. They will be doing work on it for another year, at least. There are plans for Leavesden after the movies are done.
â€¢ Butterbeer tastes like J-20 with froth on it. They both mention that real Butterbeer will be sold at the Harry Potter theme park next year (Barron said it tasted very nice).
â€¢ Dan said that he does have a say in Harry's costuming, in that his clothes should "look good, but look forgettable," given his origins. As the movies go on, the kids are seen less and less in their Hogwarts robes.
â€¢ Dan said that his stage work in Equus has made him more confident as an actor, both on-stage and screen, especially given how exposed he was in front of thousands of people live.
â€¢ On a future in directing, Dan said it'd be a long way away and that he still has a great deal to learn before considering helming a project.
â€¢ On wearing Muggle clothes in the series, as they got older, it paralleled to the fact that Muggle students around 16-17 in schools wear regular clothes and not uniforms. Plus, it shows them as more adult-like, according to Dan.
â€¢ On Tom Felton's hair dyeing, Dan said that it gets done 'more often than he likes.' Tom gets a bit more recognition that he likes as a result of it (as does Rupert), but they try to dye it as infrequently as possible.
