I know the final Harry Potter movie just premiered in London, so I wanted to post a picture that I took in June 2007. This is from the Harry Potter 4 premiere at The Odeon in Leicester Square, London. It’s none other than Daniel Radcliffe himself (incase you couldn’t recognize him).
I’ve never been a Harry Potter fan – for some reason I could never get into it. I watched the first movie and was never motivated enough to watch the others. Despite that, I went with my friends that day in 2007 to watch the arrivals because why not, right? I was in London and it was free! I would’ve been stupid not to go. The final book was also released at midnight the night before we were all scheduled to leave. We booked it up to Waterstone’s on Kensington High Street after being out at the pubs and picked up copies. I brought back a copy for myself (again, why not?) and a copy for my family in Maine who are huge Potter-heads.
I shoved them into my huge duffle bag and they made it onto the plane the next day and back to New York safe and sound. I’ve still never read it.
