I just got back last night from London where I spent a glorious, magical day visiting the studios where they are busy filming the latest Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Warner Bros reps took us on tours of the sets, let us watch filming, and gave us access to some of the actors, including Dan Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Evanna Lynch, Jason Isaacs, and Gary Oldman. You can look forward to set details and descriptions throughout the Lexicon as well as first-hand accounts of what it’s like for a fan to visit the ‘magic factory’…but you’ll have to wait until we get the go ahead. You can count on us to work out clever and creative ways to bring the magic to you in the pages of the Lexicon as soon as we’re able.

    Steve you rule/suck. I wish I could steal your memories or maybe make copies so that I could swim in the delusion that I was there too. Seriously, hope you guys loved it which I know you did.

  • Kristin

    Just to let people know they have released some photos from the Order of the Phoenix set on yahoo.com, they are in the movies section. Mostly just updated pics of the cast to see everyone’s new look.

  • Mr.VA,you are sooooo lucky. I can’t believe you got to go.

  • Pat Pat

    Kristin,

    Thanks for the tip. Those pictures are great. But it looks like this Nigel character has even more of a role in the next film. Why?? Who is he?

    Also, it looks like they cut Dan Radcliffe’s hair. They should have left it messy since Harry’s hair is always untidy!

  • Mary

    So how was it? I agree about Daniel’s hair. I liked it better long but whatever. Sara are you there? Anyway, I can’t wait to see the movie!

  • Hoogie

    wow, that is so cool, steve! its amazing!
    and hie mary, I’ here. but if we wanna chat we shoudl go to a chat room or something. see ya!

    Pat Pat –

    ‘Nigel’ is a character written especially for the films (played by a competition-winner), and is basically Colin and Dennis Creevey rolled into one.

  • Pat Pat

    Ah, thanks Olivia. Didn’t know that.

  • Olivia
    They turned Colin and Dennis into one character? Wha?

    Oh well. At least I hope this time, they don’t give all of Ron’s lines to someone else and make him a buffoon again. *rolleyes*

    And Steve, I happy you got to go to the set. I’d hoped that you’d get a chance to interview JKR, but clearly she’s terrified of the thought. 🙂

  • Laurel

    whizbang 121 — Yeah, you’re right, Jo should be scared of Steve!!!

    Steve, was Bonnie Wright there?

  • jamie

    i heard bonnie wright was there
