harry potter and the philosopher's stone premiere

Maggie Smith and Richard Harris, pictured outside the Magical Menagerie.

Headmaster and Deputy Headmistress of Hogwarts, Dumbledore and McGonagall are Harry’s stern but stalwart educators in the ways of the magical world.

Oscar winner Smith dipped into her own past to help create the teacher, who she decided was Scottish. “I suppose McGonagall is slightly like Miss Jean Brodie,” she says with a laugh. “Just a bit later in the day”. The equally venerable Harris says he did precisely nothing to prepare for his role. “How can you research it?” he asks. “The only thing I did was practice his voice: the rhythms, how gentle and precise his speech would be”. So it wasn’t difficult to capture the old wizard’s imposing but eccentric demeanor? “Eccentric?” he says with mock shock. “I forgot about that. “Reshoot, please!”“

Although both of these thespians have decades of experience under their robes, neither has starred in a movie of such magnitude. “I don’t know if I can handle being in a successful picture” Harris says dryly. “I’m used to failure”. For her part, Smith suspects that McGonagall’s intimidating aura may keep pre-adolescent fans at bay. “They’ll probably just give me a wide berth,” she says. - Premiere magazine, 2001

This was it; in a few moments, you’d be sealing what had been the greatest adventure of your entire life; Harry Potter had brought you love, eternal friendship and so much happiness. You looked at yourself in the mirror, still feeling the same nerves you felt ten years ago when you were turning up to the Philosopher’s Stone premiere - now here at the Deathly Hallows Part 2 premiere, you quarrelled on how quickly time flied. You still recognised yourself yet you had matured - you had experienced so much and you were so lucky.

Practicing your mantra in an attempt to control your breathing, you took a breath for seven seconds, held it for five and exhaled for six. “Having fun?” You heard an all too familiar voice chime from behind you. You turn around, spotting Tom stood leaning against the doorway. “I’m so nervous.” You declare, walking over to him to give him a peck on the lips. “You look ravishing.” Tom comments looking you up and down with a smirk. You were wearing a navy full length dress that hugged your curves in all the right places. He was wearing a navy suit (which just so happened to be the same shade) and his hair was tousled just the way you like it. “So do you.” You replied in an oddly surprised tone. Tom hadn’t really bothered with the previous premieres, even turning up in jeans and a t-shirt to the last one. “You sound so surprised, love.” He chuckles, intertwining his fingers with yours. “I am, I didn’t think they’d make you look this sexy. Now I have to compete with all the other girls.” You chime, reaching up to peck his lips once again. “You’re not competing, Y/N, I’m already your boyfriend. Besides, you look amazing, should I be worried about any man trying to steal you away?” Tom asks with a grin on his face. You shake your head. “Of course not.”
