Dan, Rupert and Emma, and Tom Felton and Devon Murray, especially those kids, when I would have sick children with me on the set they would come straight up to me and start engaging with these kids and take photos with them and ask, ‘What’ve they seen so far? What was their favorite part of the film? What was their favorite part of the day?’” She reminisced about a number of touching memories from the set visits, including a time a young boy got to help direct a scene with Radcliffe in Chamber of Secrets. After the scene, the boy ran up to Radcliffe, threw his arms around him and said, “I love you, Harry.”

“All of us were in tears, the director [Chris Columbus], the cast, the crew, we were all tearing up. But it was such a beautiful moment, and Dan was so sweet with him. That’s the purity of Harry Potter.” […] Jay, a child diagnosed with Stage 4 neuroblastoma, was excited to visit the set [of Prisoner of Azkaban], “But what he really wanted was to be in the film, not just visiting. […] I said, ‘Well, we can’t really do that, and you’re already here.’ Alan [Rickman] came over and introduced himself to Jay, and Jay was so happy to meet him. He was really knowledgeable. He was about 15 at the time, and he knew a lot about Alan’s other films, and Jay mentioned to Alan that what he really wanted to do was be in the film.

“Alan looked at me, and he kind of went into his Snape-mode in costume, and said, ‘Why isn’t this child in the film?’ […] Everyone had a good laugh, and Alan took him by the hand and put him into the crowd of kids as they were panning across. […] [Jay] was very happy that Alan did that for him.” — Paula DuPre’ Pesmen on the Cast of Harry Potter [x]

I was sleeping in this little pub, keeping away from some Snatchers, and I heard it. A voice. Your voice, Hermione. You said my name. Just my name. Like a whisper. So I took it, clicked it and this tiny ball of light appeared. And I knew. It flew towards me, the ball of light, right through my chest and straight through me. Right here. And I knew it was going to take me where I needed to go.
