article imagePotter star Radcliffe said to be ‘devastated’ as filming ends

By Andrew John     Jun 1, 2010 in Entertainment
Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is said to be “devastated” that the Potter film franchise is coming to an end with the shooting of the last in the series.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is the seventh and last in J. K. Rowling’s Potter series of books, which charts the school life of Harry, a young wizard, from his joining the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to his leaving.
Both Radcliffe – who will be 21 in July – and his co-star Emma Watson (Hermione Grainger), who is 20 are said to be sad that the series is coming to an end with the production of the second of the Deathly Hallows films (the seventh book has been filmed in two parts).
Britain’s Mirror says the actor who plays Harry’s pal Ron Weasley, Rupert Grint, is also sad.
For this final film, the actors had to be made up to look in their 30s, as they are filmed seeing their own children off from the famous Platform 9¾.
It was recently announced that Radcliffe would appear in a charity advertisement to help combat homophobia.
The actor appears on behalf of the UK-based Trevor Project, a charity that supports gay people who are at risk of committing suicide.
“I grew up knowing a lot of gay men, and it was never something that I even thought twice about – that some men were gay and some weren’t,” he told E! Online. “And then I went to school and, [for] the first time, I came across homophobia. I had never encountered it before. It shocked me.
“I have always hated anybody who is not tolerant of gay men or lesbians or bisexuals. Now I am in the very fortunate position where I can actually help or do something about it.”
