And according to MTV News, Radcliffe was a little emotional at the end of filming.
“I didn’t expect myself to get particularly emotional, but I did, as I’m sure you’ll see on the DVD extras, because we were filmed weeping like children,” he said.
Throughout most of the day, Radcliffe was able to keep his emotions at bay. It was only until he was approached by producers David Heyman and David Barron, that he was unable to contain his emotions.
“They came up and said, ‘How are you feeling? How are you doing?’” Radcliffe said. “And I couldn’t find any words, and I just said, ‘I just want you to know, I’ve had a really nice time.’ And it was such a young, quite innocent, sweet thing to say, that I kind of caught myself off guard. That was the moment when I suddenly had a lump in my throat and was like, ‘OK, I’m really going to have to struggle to keep it together on the last shot,’ which was a stunt, very simple, just jumping and rolling onto a map.”
And yes, obviously Radcliffe nailed the jump and roll. And he also made it through the rest of the shoot.
Then, “they said, ‘That’s a wrap.’ It just felt weird,” Radcliffe said.
Before the emotions really sunk in, Radcliffe had to head to New York at the end of the day to be a presenter at the Tony Awards. Meaning, the poor wizard didn’t get to go out with his fellow wizards on the day they finally finished shooting the “Potter” series.
“That wasn’t the official wrap party,” Radcliffe said. “That was just everybody going out and getting crazy drunk. The wrap party we’ll have will be sometime in the next two weeks, which will be exciting.”
