Deleted Scene from “Deathly Hallows” Shows Different Side to Disliked Character
HollywoodNews.com: For fans familiar with the story of Harry Potter, it is an undisputed fact that Harry’s muggle relatives, the Dursleys, probably wished he’d never been born – or at the very least that he’d never been left on their doorstep.
The very first time movie viewers hear the Dursleys mention Harry’s magical parents, it is obvious that 1) they don’t approve of magic, and 2) that Petunia Dursley clearly resented her sister. Or did she?
A new clip – a deleted scene featured on the upcoming DVD release of the seventh film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1, shows an unusually demure and almost emotional Aunt Petunia (Fiona Shaw) painfully reminding Harry that he was not the only person who lost someone the night Lord Voldemort murdered his parents.
Harry: “They’ll torture you. If they think for a moment you know where I’m going, they’ll stop at nothing.”
Petunia: “Do you think I don’t know what they’re capable of? You didn’t just lose a mother that night in Godric’s Hollow, you know? I lost a sister.”
Should the clip have been kept in the theatrical release of the film?
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 will be released on DVD on April 15.
