    Daniel Radcliffe on Last Day of Potter Filming: "I Wept Like a Child"

    Larry King has resurfaced from wherever he's been hiding to talk Harry Potter.

    It's an unlikely pairing, but hey, Oprah's moved on to bigger things. Good ol' retired Larry dug deep in his closet and pulled out those trusty suspenders on one more time for a chat with Daniel Radcliffe about the franchise and how the star feels about it ending with the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2

    Basically, he cried.

    "Very, very emotional," Radcliffe tells King in the clip above. "I remember I kind of wept like a child on my last day."

    And how does the actor stays so down-to-earth with all that Potter mania surrounding him?

    Radcliffe, so beloved in the role of the young wizard we've seen grow up before our eyes, simply believes that the role could have gone to anyone—and he never forgets it.

    "The most important thing is for me to remember, it doesn't matter who would have gotten this part. They would have gotten this attention," he tells King. "When you step out of the car at a premiere and you're hit with that wall of noise and screaming, it's very important for me to remember that they would be screaming for somebody else had he got the part. It's not about me; it's about the franchise and the character, and so that I kind of have to think about a lot just to keep it in perspective and stop myself from getting big headed."

    As for the blockbuster franchise coming to a close with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, the actor says that he's made some serious bonds working with the same people for the past 10 years and that he has mixed feelings on it all coming to a close.

    "I've had such an amazing time on Potter, and it's been such an extraordinary experience to work with...It's actually the same group of people for 10 years. You develop such close bonds with so many people it feels odd that, although those bonds will still exist in the future, it feels very strange to not be going back to work with them next year," he says.

    Along with Radcliffe's interview,  for all you Potter freaks, will also be a sneak peek at never before seen footage from the upcoming flick and King will go behind the scenes with the special effects team on the movie. The special, Harry Potter: The Final Chapter will air on CNN on July 10 at 8 and 11 p.m. ET and will also feature Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Tom Felton, Helena Bonham Carter and Robbie Coltrane along with Radcliffe.
