I have never cried during a movie. Ever. I’ve seen Titanic, every Harry Potter so far, Anne Frank’s life story, parts of Earthlings, and other classic “waterworks” movies.
Just watched the trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2. I think, as I watch it on July 15th, I will cry.
I remember, very clearly, when I was six years old, we had just moved from Florida to Virginia, and the apartment complex we lived in had its own playground. There were other kids my age there, too. The first day, I joined the other kids as they stood on the sand, reciting Hogwarts house names (as directed my an older girl, who loved Harry Potter).
"Huffleclaw, Raveningriff, Gryfferin, and Slytherpuff. . , " I had muttered, uncertain of the real names. I’d never heard of Harry Potter before. Over the next couple of years, Harry Potter became a way of life for me. And it’s all going to end, on July 15th, for the entire world.
But not for me. And for every other loyal HP fan out there. Harry Potter is a worldwide phenomenon, and surely go on to be considered a “classic” along with titles such as Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre (although I really can’t stand those books).
Long live JK Rowling and her kingdom of awesomeness.

“I have often been asked about the impact the Harry Potter films have had on my life. What’s it like growing up on a film set? How have the films changed/shaped you? What’s it like being a celebrity? Have you missed out on a ‘normal’ childhood? These questions and similar ones have preoccupied the world for many years. The simple truth is that i have never known any different,and so what the world views as unusual is my normality, and i have loved every minute of it. The cast and crew of the Harry Potter films have been my second family for half my life. I have gone from a young ten year old to a man of twenty-one years, and every film holds different memories for me, as each marks a transition along the way. And how many men my age can boast that they have speared a huge snake, nearly lost their lives playing chess, narrowly avoided being eaten by a gargantuan spider, nearly fallen out of a flying car, fought dragons, swam under water for 40 minutes, dodged a dangerous maze, kissed a girl, kissed another girl (OK,maybe that isnt so unusual), and not to mention gone head to head with the most evil wizard of all time? But, most importantly, for me, Harry Potter is all about the people. I have been privileged to have met and worked alongside the most creative and generous people in the industry. And i have met and made friends for life. I have learned so much as an actor and as a person throughout these ten years-thank you.”—Daniel Radcliffe (via younopoo)
