From the red carpet: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2 premiere
Share This Article:
Last night was the world premiere of the final Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows pt 2. But we are sure you know that, unless you were on another planet yesterday. There is only one word to sum up the night: tears. Buckets and buckets of tears. The whole of Trafalgar Square was taken over by Potter mania, and the film was to be shown in not just one but three cinemas in Leicester Square. The red carpet snaked right around square and thousands of Potter fans, some who had waited since Monday afternoon (!), came together to give the final film the send-off it deserved. There were plenty of Harrys, Rons and Hermiones dotted in the crowd with signs reading things like "We're all potty about Potter", "Potter 'til I die" and "Harry Potter is over. See you in therapy". TNS managed to bag a pass, and was right at the heart of the action, on the red carpet. Stationed at the end of the red carpet, we thought we wouldn’t see much. How wrong were we! Not only did we have an amazing view of the stage, it turned out that the stars had to mingle around exactly where we were before they were transported to one of the cinemas, which meant we could grab lots of people for chats!
