Oliver and James Phelps greet the crowds as they arrive at the premiere of Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part II held at Trafalgar Square on Thursday (July 7) in London.
James recently told Parade mag about the thing he got to keep from set. “I always wanted to take my wand, but they kept those because theyâ€™re doing a prop tour. But it would be quite cool to have one of those one day. But the one that I did actually get to take with me was money from Gringotts Wizarding Bank. The actual coins were really detailed,” he shared.
Oliver, who is also pictured out at the F1 Party held at the Natural History Museum, told Telegraph his favorite line from the films and it’s one of JJJ‘s too! “Itâ€™s when Harry and Ginny are kissing and George comes up behind them and goes, ‘Morning!’”
The trio were saddened by the signing being cut short. Oliver tweeted, “I am deeply sorry that I didn’t get to meet everyone at the signing today. We all wanted to say but we were told with over 2000ppl there. It wasn’t safe to stay. Not for us but public safety. I understand this is not acceptable. The decision was not ours to leave.”
But the twins enjoyed Italy a lot! James added, “Last day in Italy, trying to see as much of Rome as I can by lunch time. I’ve been to some wicked stadiums around the world…this is one of the best, and oldest.”
The trio of Harry Potter stars issued three apologies via Twitter after the signing was cut short and premiere were canceled due to the massive crowds.
Evanna tweeted, “I’m so so sorry to all the fans in Rome who waited for hours for our signing and didn’t get to meet us. It was much larger than WB had anticipated. @James_Phelps @OliverPhelps and I really wanted to stay but there were safety concerns for the crowds and we had. No choice on the matter. We are really, really sorry and are so grateful for your support. We’re currently working on a video to explain it to you guys and we are going to sign many of those cards and WB will find a way of distributing them to you. I’m SO sorry. WB did their Best but the security were concerned it was getting dangerous. I understand how frustrating this is for you all, it is certainly not Good enough but we will sort something out to try and make it up to you. Again, I’M SORRY :( :( :( :(” she continued.
