SS are reporting this week about TOM FELTON and JOHN HURT getting talkative about their roles in DH.
Tom has been talking about training to look 40 years older for the epilogue:
"For nearly two months, we've all been doing prosthetic tests and all sorts of preparation for the epilogue," Felton said. "I've been having some aging training. You've got to walk differently. There's a slump in your walk."

"It's bizarre," Felton laughed. "We have a lovely guy who comes in. It was a little weird the first time — imagine you've got weights on your arms! There have been a number of times where I nearly laughed and I had to hold it in."

And while a bit of sadness has crept into the proceedings at the thought of leaving the series behind, he's eagerly anticipating the chance to film the epilogue at long last and thankful that he — and not an older actor — will be in front of the camera when it all goes down.

"We're probably at the most exciting bit," he said. "Certainly the part I've been most looking forward to. It's going to be very exciting."


JOHN HURT was also talking about his role in DEATHLY HALLOWS;
"It’s very strange really. I did the first one and thought that would be it. Nobody knew whether it was going to be successful. When I came back last December to do the last two, suddenly everybody’s grown up. Daniel’s 20. It’s very peculiar."

"[The fans are] crazy about Ollivander — they love him! I’m not sure they will when they see the next one when he’s being tortured. I’ve never been pestered for an autograph. I get asked — usually by parents because the children are a bit too shy to ask. But I’ve never been pestered; I have a very good class of fan."

John Hurt is the Irish actor who first appeared as the wandmaker Ollivander in Philosopher's/Sorcerer's Stone back in 2001 and is reapearing as him in the upcoming Deathly Hallows.
