"As I was about to, I kind of scurried off [the set]. I could feel it welling up inside me. It was an emotional moment. I knew I was going to break down if I stayed any longer."
Tom Felton, when asked if he cried on the last day of shooting

"Yeah I've got miniature donkeys, miniature pigs, there's an ice cream truck...a hovercraft. I'm just having fun with it. I've collected a few strange things over the years."
Rupert Grint, when asked why Daniel Radcliffe calls his house Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory

"I can't tell you it. It was difficult for all three of them, Dan, Rupert and Emma. They were all very emotional  to let go."
—Director David Yates on who was the most emotion on the last day of filming

"Dan was like an old soul in a young body. He had a curiosity and a generosity of spirit. Rupert was just such a great comedian and had a warmth. And Emma was smart as a whip even then. And they were just good!"
—Producer David Heyman on what he first saw in his three leads when they were first cast

"There was a big commotion when they saw the dark lord get out of his SUV. I think people like villains. I think there's something we all are attracted to in bad guys. None of us has the courage, quite, to be that bad. We can identify with them for a bit."
Ralph Fiennes, on the fun of playing the evil Lord Voldemort

"I'm loving it! I don't really miss it. I'm not gonna lie. I can wash my head, in a basin…in a sink. Takes me like five minutes to get ready. It's great."
Emma Watson, on the benefits of having short hair

"It's the nicest thing in the world to be able to be here with him. He's been waiting a year to see this. I feel really lucky that we could bring him."
Sarah Jessica Parker on bringing son, James WIlkie, to the premiere

"All the time! Nobody seems to be into it, but i'm all about it! It used to work for Led Zeppelin, they were always writing about wizards and stuff."
—Matchbox 20 singer Rob Thomas when asked if he'd ever thought of including a Harry Potter theme in his music

"No, no! That was to be filed under 'things I regret saying.' No, if I meet somebody great then of course. I'm not gonna say, 'No, no, no, I have to be single!' No I'm not crazy.  If I meet someone sure. No I'm not crazy."
Daniel Radcliffe, addressing rumors that he said he'd remain single during his upcoming stint on Broadway
