I think it's great to see how they've grown up, not just as actors but as people. They're still very much the same kids that I met many years ago. They've grown up and they are funny and wicked and naughty and bright, and I think as actors their work is just getting better and better. They've blossomed. ---->>>

Because actually it's really hard to get things made. It takes years. To fight the fights you inevitably have to fight, even when you've produced Harry Potter, you'd better have the commitment and the passion to knock down walls, not take no for an answer. ---->>>

I love books. I read voraciously, and I happened to have been fortunate to have been in the right place at the right time. ---->>>

All we try and do is make the best films we can. If you do that then hopefully the audiences will come, and they have. Everything else is gravy. ---->>>

But I can't imagine Harry being a stockbroker at 35. That doesn't really seem the stuff of 'Harry Potter'. ---->>>
