TLC: You have gotten to work with some of the most amazing actors of our time. Can you talk about working with them, and if you took tips from them, and how it has affected your acting?
Emma Watson: Well, this time round, there’s Emma Thompson, Gary Oldman, David Thewlis..
Daniel Racliffe: Timothy Spall…
Emma Watson: Timothy Spall.
Daniel Radcliffe: Michael Gambon as well, as Dumbledore.
Emma Watson: What a cast!
Daniel Racliffe: It was amazing because, ever since I’ve started doing the Harry Potter films, I’ve been watching films a lot more and I’ve watched, probably, I’d say 90% of Gary Oldman’s films. I have so much respect for him as an actor. I think that he’s one of the greatest actors of his generation and it was a complete inspiration to work with him. He’s actually the nicest guy as well - he gave me a bass lesson and he’s a really great bass player. And it was so amazing for us to be working in the same room as Gary, David Thewlis, Timothy Spall and Alan Rickman all in one go. It was unbelievable.
Emma Watson:: Dan almost bit my head off at the beginning when he said, ‘Gary Oldman’s been cast as Sirius Black’, and I went ‘Who?’
Daniel Radcliffe: My face just kind of dropped!
Emma Watson: And now I know that is the most terrible thing that I could possibly say ever. But even though I didn’t know him, just working with him, he did such a good job. He’s great.
