They also spoke about the EA video game and Germany.
Tom, you have a huge fan base in Germany. You were also already there …
Yes, Germany is really great. I wish I could come back pretty soon.
That’s exactly my question. Have you any plans?
It is unfortunately still not certain. I wanted to come two times to visit and each time I had to cancel at short notice due to filming. But I have another request for this autumn. Hopefully it works this time, that would be cool!
Tom, I didn’t know that you’re also a big video player. Until now it was thought that only of the Phelps twins.
Constantly any designers and programmers were on set with us. At some point I’ve thought, I look at the games. And at the last adventure I’ve become slightly addicted. I think they’re really well done, very scary and exciting action-packed. It’s great to walk through Hogwarts and gamble the missions.
Were you involved in development?
A little bit. We had already recorded my text passages some time ago, so that I didn’t need it this time. But once I was in the studio and looked around, what the guys and gals producing here. There’s really a great effort behind such a game.
Is there a favorite character for you?
In the last adventure here it’s in fact Neville.
Because he changed from a shy nerd into a hero?
Right! His role evolved fantastic and Neville is such an important part. He was always underestimated.
