  • (audience applauds) Thank you for being here.

  • Thank you for having me.

  • I wanna ask you, we had Daniel Radcliffe

  • here last night, and I chatted with him briefly,

  • and I asked him the same question but I wanna ask you,

  • 'cause it's such an unusual situation,

  • it's the fifth Harry Potter film,

  • and you look back now,

  • how old were you when you did the first one?

  • I auditioned when I was nine,

  • and I started filming when I was 10, 11.

  • Is it strange for you,

  • because these movies are ubiquitous,

  • you see them on television all the time,

  • and do you ever come across yourself

  • in that first film, and how does that feel?

  • Quite horrible, to be honest.

  • It's really, I mean, I guess it's just,

  • yeah, very, very strange.

  • And especially, like in this one,

  • there's a flashback to the first film,

  • so I get to see a lot of that.

  • I guess just, I seem to have such chubby cheeks,

  • and such like a high voice, and the big hair, and yeah so.

  • You're describing me perfectly actually.

  • (audience laughs)

  • But that's how, I think, people don't generally like

  • to look at themselves at that age.

  • I mean, everyone else thinks

  • that you're a really cute kid in those films,

  • but that's not how you perceive it, right?

  • I mean, it's kind of hard to explain like how that feels,

  • but I guess like, I don't know if you hear voice,

  • if you ever hear your voice taped

  • or on an answering machine,

  • and it's like, ah. Yes, yeah, can't stand it.

  • It's horrible.

  • People can't listen. Can't stand it.

  • It's exactly like that, but like 20 times worse.

  • Yeah, although your voice is very beautiful.

  • Mine is very grating. (audience laughs)

  • I hear sometimes after we tape,

  • and I'm like, "Hello, folks, we're back.

  • We can have a great too."

  • And I'm like, someone kill that guy.

  • (audience laughs)

  • Now there are lots of, of course,

  • there's so much merchandising also associated

  • with this movie, there are lots of Harry Potter products.

  • What's the strangest thing that you've seen your face,

  • you know, associated with, what's the strangest product?

  • God, this is really hard,

  • there is so much Harry Potter merchandise.

  • I was at Waitrose the other day,

  • and I came across Hermione's Magic Muffins,

  • which I was like, wow, that's a new one.

  • What is it, it's a muffin mix?

  • Yeah, exactly, it's a muffin mix,

  • you don't have to buy any ingredients, it's all in there,

  • and you kinda get some stickers with my head on them,

  • and you kind of put them on.

  • Right, right, yeah. Yeah.

  • (audience laughs) And it's strange, because are you a good,

  • do you make muffins yourself?

  • Are you, you know, a good cook?

  • I'm an awful cook to be completely honest, no.

  • I would never, ever do that, that would be so so strange.

  • Yeah, so it must be odd,

  • you almost feel like your face is on it,

  • like I'm responsible for those muffins tasting delicious.

  • Yes, kind of, I guess, yeah, kind of.

  • What about, I know there are Harry Potter video games.

  • Have you played, or any of your friends or family

  • played the video games?

  • Yeah, at the press-junket, they had like a room

  • with the game that's been released,

  • and people and would kinda go in and try it and stuff,

  • and my brother, obviously he was bored to tears

  • to be talking about Harry Potter,

  • went in and was trying the game out,

  • and he came back, and I was like,

  • "Oh, did you have a good morning?"

  • And he was like, "Yeah, yeah, yeah.

  • "I've been throwing benches at you, like for hours,"

  • And I was like. (audience laughs)

  • That's nice to know.

  • So your brother can go in to a room

  • and just hurl benches at you. Yeah!

  • But no one gets hurt, it's perfect,

  • yeah, that's very nice. Yes, it is excellent, yeah.

  • I know there were action figures as well,

  • does your brother or any of your siblings

  • ever get the action figure?

  • That would be very strange.

  • That would be seriously creepy.

  • I don't think I would let them have it.

  • I think that's so like, no,

  • that would be really weird, really weird.

  • It was something I would do.

  • (audience laughs)

  • I understand that you and the cast

  • made a very short Harry Potter film

  • especially for the Queen's 80th--

  • 80th birthday, yeah. 80th birthday.

  • And then before, and then you all met her,

  • did you have to take etiquette lessons

  • and learn how to meet the Queen?

  • I would think there are a lot of rules, right?

  • Well this is the funny thing,

  • by the time I've had all the sort of etiquette

  • of how I was meant to meet her,

  • and I could only say this, and I couldn't say that,

  • to be honest, I was kind of glad in the end

  • that I didn't actually meet her in the end,

  • 'cause like apparently, you know,

  • you can only address her as Your Majesty,

  • and you can't speak to her unless she speaks to you,

  • and there's kind of this whole bow you have to do,

  • and all of this stuff that I was like, okay, right, okay.

  • I was so nervous about that, I was kinda like,

  • actually, you know what, I'll just look at her,

  • and we'll just sit behind her,

  • that's good enough for me, you know? (audience laughs)

  • Right, 'cause you're so afraid

  • of just, am I gonna do this the wrong way?

  • If I'm gonna make a mistake.

  • Yeah, yeah. Yeah.

  • Did she seem like a nice person?

  • Did you get a sense of her as a person, or not really?

  • I mean, you were in a room with her,

  • but you didn't actually get to meet her.

  • To be honest, she,

  • I mean I hope she enjoyed the show we put together,

  • she kind of, she didn't really,

  • not that much facial expression going on.

  • She was quite kind of (audience laughs)

  • like this, I was like, is she enjoying it?

  • Does she like it, oh my god. She is the Queen.

  • She's not gonna, you know, raise the roof.

  • (audience laughs)

  • No, just like whoo, yeah.

  • Ow, churn the butter! (audience laughs)

  • High fives for you and the whole cast.

  • Yeah, no, so I was like, yeah,

  • I didn't really know, but I'm sure she,

  • I hope she enjoyed it.

  • You know, I know a lot of people in America,

  • you have a beautiful voice, as I said,

  • and the English accent is so,

  • I mean, to many Americans, it sounds distinguished,

  • and you know, yeah. Oh no, it's awful.

  • When I come to America, I always feel really,

  • I hate my English accent,

  • 'cause it sounds so kind of like, I don't know, pretentious.

  • I don't know if that's the word.

  • It sounds really kind of, I don't know.

  • So by the end of my stay here,

  • I kind of find that my English is kind of

  • edging towards American English.

  • No, what's pretentious

  • is when people affect an English accent.

  • Yours is real, you're allowed to have one.

  • (audience laughs)

  • For people like Madonna, who like two years ago.

  • (audience laughs)

  • Suddenly like, "Oh hello.

  • "It's really good, would you like to have?"

  • You're like. (audience applauds)

  • Aren't you from long Island or something?

  • (audience laughs)

  • What about, do you think that when you hear Americans,

  • 'cause there are American actors

  • who in movies try and do a British accent,

  • and to us maybe it sounds all right,
