This past Monday, Feltbeats.com had the honor of attending multiple press events promoting Harry Potter: The Exhibition’s opening at Discovery Times Square, as well as next weeks release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 on DVD and Blue Ray. In attendance, were Harry Potter cast members, and filmakers.
First up, representatives from fansites attended a Q and A featuring multiple Harry Potter cast members and producers. Tom Felton was unfortunately unable to attend due to his appearance at Supernova in Australia. The Q and A was broken up into to sessions. The first one featuring Robbie Coltrane, Freddie Stroma, Evanna Lynch, David Thewlis, Warwick Davis, Natalia Tena, Helen McCrory, and David Barron. The second featuring Bonnie Wright, James and Oliver Phelps, Mark Williams, Domhnal Gleeson, Clemence Posey, Michael Gambon, and David Heyman. Warner Bros. has been kind enough to supply us with audio from not only the fansite press conferences, but ones attended by mainstream media outlets.
Here is the audio from the Fansite press conference:
