Filming of Final 'Harry Potter' Film Comes To An End

Daniel Radcliffe wore his 'Harry Potter' attire for the last time this weekend as shooting wrapped on the final installment of the series.

"Everyone was really devastated. It was really, really sad," Radcliffe says. "Were crying quite a lot. It's a weird, weird feeling."

"The end of an Era - today is officially the last day of principal photography on 'Harry Potter' - ever," Warwick Davis, who played both Flitwick in Griphook, writes on Twitter. "I feel honoured to be here as the director shouts cut for the very last time. Farewell Harry & Hogwarts, it’s been magic!"

'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' will be released in two parts with the first installment coming out on November 19, 2010, and the finale next summer.

Tom Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy, says despite filming coming to an end, nobody has been told exactly where the split will happen.

"We don't know where the cut's going to be," he says. " Everyone keeps asking us 'where is the cut?' but they've shot it kind of all as one and I think they're going to wait and see whatever feels right."

Felton says while some fans may be disappointed, the cast was relieved when they found out that the final book would be broken into two films.

"It was nothing but a sigh of relief for us as there was so much in the book we thought 'oh my God, they're going to cut characters out, they'll leave bits out'. It's the most important chapter of the whole story really so it was important to go into it in as much detail as possible so we were all thrilled about it."

As for the series coming to an end, the young actor jokes: "I kind of used him as therapy in a way. I got to build up these angers and frustrations and then vent it through this evil little Hitler child. Without it I may have to go to therapy - maybe it's time to vent that way!"
