The end is almost here! Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and all your favorite wizards and witches hit the red carpet in New York for the U.S. premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, and they weren't afraid to tell us what was on their mind!

We're sharing the best bits right here, including which baddie bought his fans a slice:

"It was an idea we had in London, but they wouldn't let us do it in London because there was too many people...It was very cool. It was nice to kind of surprise them. They didn't know what was going on."
Tom Felton (aka Draco Malfoy), describing what it was like to feed fans camping out for the premiere pizza

"We'll keep in touch, all of us—everyone behind the camera, in front of the camera. They'll be relationships that endure for the rest of our lives, because nobody's experienced what we've quite experienced. We've kind of been to the moon and back together, and that's very special."
—Director David Yates, on the end of Potter

"Oh not much. I mean I look basically the same. I'm a little taller but not much. I'm essentially him but with a slightly deeper voice. Thank god, 'cause otherwise I'd still be sounding like I was on helium."
Daniel Radcliffe, on how he's changed since the first premiere

"You can tell the difference between a Hollywood star who is just put in a gown and someone who has a passion for fashion, and Emma has that passion for fashion. I think we need to watch everything she's doing not just what she's wearing on the red carpets."
Jay Manuel, when asked about Watson's fashion sense

"I think we've actual rounded out the film properly. You can expect a big operated, exciting, battle-filled climax to this series of films. But at it's heart it still has a very emotional core, and those people we care about are never over shadowed by the action that surrounds them."
—Producer David Barron, when asked what the fans can expect from the final film

"Their spirit of camaraderie when we were casting the movie was absolutely essential, and when we say that screen test where Emma, Rupert and Dan were together, we knew that this was Harry, Hermione and Ron."
Chris Columbus (director of the first two Potter movies), on casting the stars

"Wow, that's very lovely. No, I'm not embarrassed entirely. I'm about the color of this carpet I imagined right now."
Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), when told fans keep talking about how hot he is now

"It's crazy, It's very special to experience this. I'm going to miss it. I like these kind of things, being screamed at. It's good, you don't get that every day. I think you got to just make the most of it and just really milk it."
Rupert Grint, describing what it's like to see all the fans at the premiere

"What I love is they're pretty much the same young people that I first met 11 years ago. They're humble, they're decent, they're generous. And they've carried the weight of these films on their shoulders for 10 years in the spotlight, and yet they're not high on their horse. They're lovely young adults."
—Producer David Haymen, when asked how the stars have changed since the first film

"It's definitely emotional. I'm going to be trying to process this for the next two or three weeks. It's been so crazy the last week or so, but I'm so thrilled with the reception and excited about the movie."
Emma Watson, when asked how it feels to leave Hermione behind
