Harry Potter Stars Say Farewell to Franchise at Fair-Themed Wrap Party
By Hanako M. Ricks
HollywoodNews.com: Warner Bros. and Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling hosted a wrap party at Leavesden Studios for the stars of the mega-successful film franchise, which wrapped final production in June.
The Daily Mail posted photos of cast members Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy), Jim Broadbent (Professor Slughorn), and David Thewlis (Remus Lupin), who brought along partner Anna Friel, as they were leaving the rain-soaked, carnival themed event. Emma Watson was not listed as being in attendance; she has been in New York over the past week doing promotions for the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
The releases of both parts to Deathly Hallows marks the end of a magnificent decade for the film franchise, which began when Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was released in 2000. The films have grossed over $5.5 billion worldwide, and have included some of the most renown names in British acting – the late Richard Harris (who played the original Professor Dumbledore), Sir Michael Gambon (who plays the current Dumbledore), Alan Rickman (Severus Snape), Dame Maggie Smith (Professor McGonagall), Gary Oldman (Sirius Black), Emma Thompson (Professor Trelawney), Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy), Helena Bonham-Carter (Bellatrix Lestrange) and Ralph Fiennes (Voldemort), among others. The top three stars Radcliffe, Grint and Watson are listed among the top paid young actors in the world.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts 1 & 2 will be released on November 19, 2011 and July 15, 2011.
