Harry Potter stars interviewed for Supanova

THIS year's Supanova in Brisbane will have a distinctively Harry Potter theme with three of its actors attending the convention.

Along with Tom Felton, Chris Rankin who plays Percy Weasley and Alfie Enoch who plays Dean Thomas will also feature.

 

The Chronicle got Chris and Alfie to answer some questions ahead of their highly anticipated visit to Australia.

What do you most love about Australia?
CHRIS: I really love the friendliness of the Aussies! Although, being a Kiwi by birth, I have to be careful here! It's a great and diverse place to visit, I've been to Melbourne and Sydney twice before, and I'm looking forward to seeing some more of the country.
ALFIE: I haven't been before. But at the beginning of this year, I was in a play called Happy New by Brendan Cowell, which was set in Australia and made me really keen to visit.

What would your patronus be?
CHRIS: My patronus would probably be a wombat.
ALFIE: I think my patronus would be a fox.

What is your favourite spell?
CHRIS: Can't use magic in front of muggles - sorry!
ALFIE: I always liked the idea of Alohomora. It would be fun to be able to unlock any door in the world - you could go anywhere!

Which of the Deathly Hallows would you want?
CHRIS: Oh the invisibility cloak. The other two are more creepy....
ALFIE: Perhaps the invisibility cloak. Then I wouldn't be spotted going through locked doors I wasn't meant to be going through... Although having the most powerful wand in the world doesn't sound too shabby... But if I had the choice I'd ditch them all for a Firebolt; having your own flying broomstick would be amazing!

If you could be any other character what would you be?
CHRIS: I love playing villians, and I always liked the character of Tom Riddle from Chamber of Secrets.
ALFIE: Snape - he has the most terrific character arc. And his story's so moving.

What was your favourite scene to film?
CHRIS: There's so many different answers to this and for different reasons. I really enjoyed shooting in Gloucester Cathedral on the first film because it was Percy's moment in the spotlight. I loved shooting at The Burrow in Chamber of Secrets.... lots of laughs! But the final two films are really special for me because it was such a massive team effort. Everyone was together for such a large part of it. It was a lot of fun.
ALFIE: For the Deathly Hallows part 2, I filmed a fight scene on the battlements of the castle which sadly didn't make it into the final cut, but I got to play around with a wand in front of a green screen which was a lot of fun, until I fell off trying a Roger Federer-style back hand slice.

What are you up to now?
CHRIS: I graduated from Uni in 2011 and plan on moving into film and stage production more so than acting. I'm also getting married in January of 2013, so it's time to be a bit more grown up and settle down!
ALFIE: I've been in two plays there this summer; Antigone by Sophocles and Timon of Athens.Chris Rankin (left) who played Percy Weasley and Alfie Enoch who played Dean Thomas in the Harry Potter series.Alfie Enoch, Dean Thomas
