The stars of Harry Potter talk about Universal Orlando's Wizarding World

Published: June 17, 2010 at 3:35 PM

ORLANDO - This morning, Universal Orlando Resort made several of the stars of the Harry Potter films available for a question and answer session, about the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and the actors' roles within it.

I asked the actors about the first time they heard confirmation that the theme park attraction would be built, and their reaction to that news. Radcliffe spoke of his initial hesitation, followed by his relief in seeing the detail to which Universal was building the theme park addition.

You can see their answer in the video below, as well as their responses when asked about their reaction to going on the ride for the first time.

Looks like Dumbledore's not a roller coaster fan....

Update: I added a bonus video for our Facebook fans of Tom Felton, talking about the kid who told him, "I hate you." Funny!

Was this Q&A session attended solely by members of the media? Or in other words, who could attend this Q&A session? I assume it was not open to everybody.
