Since this is Harry Potter, and you’ve all worked with Dan Radcliffe, what’s your favorite scene or experience with him?
Helen McCrory: "Let’s start making things up now." (Laughs)
Just remembering back, having worked with him on all of the films, Dan was very, very young, 9 or 10 when we started. I think I was taller than Daniel when we started. I remember filming the sequence in Gringott’s Bank. He came up to the counter and Chris Columbus was particularly keen for Dan to be a bit shocked when he first sees the goblin bank teller peering over the desk at him. He whispered to me before Dan’s close up, “When we get to this close up, as Dan approaches the bench, can you make some sort of scary noise and make him to jump so that we can get a shocked reaction?” I said, “That’ll be fine. I’ll sort that out.” I had all the face make up on, so that’d be no problem. So the cameras rolled. Chris shouted action. Dan walks up and I went, “BLAHHHH!” like that. Daniel just stood there for a second and then burst out laughing. It had completely the opposite effect than we’d desired. He’s just a brilliant lad to work with. He’s done so well. And just to have gotten through all these films and been so consistent, it’s quite an achievement, really."
