JJJ caught up with James and Oliver on the carpet and had to ask about one of the classic pranks they’ve pulled. They couldn’t tell us a lot of them, but we did find out about a prank war. Check it out:

Daniel Radcliffe sits down to chat with “Harry Potter” author, J.K. Rowling in a behind-the-scenes feature available on the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 Blu-ray and DVD.
According to ABC News, the 22-year-old actor who played the Boy Wizard told J.K. that he was once allergic to his first pair of Harry Potter glasses.
â€œIt was brilliant because we put the glasses on and eventually we realized that I was allergic to them,â€ Daniel said, â€œI was actually allergic to the Harry Potter glasses. Because I had these two rings of whiteheads and spots that had come up around my eyes and it took us a week to realize that it was actually the glasses.â€

Michael said, “Dumbledore and Harry’s relationship goes beyond just headmaster and schoolboy. There’s a friendship that developed.”

It’s been the year of the longest goodbye in the world and it is a very very sad thing, but we just had the most amazing, amazing time. So, thank you so much for this, this is crazy.”
