Looks wonderful. I love this last photo with Radcliffe and Bonham-Carter.
It's very sweet. Also, something that would never happen in the films. Or at lesat, he wouldn't be looking so happy about it.
I'm so jealous!!! Red carpet for Harry Potter!!! Urgh!!!
It's because my cousin works on the films and I'm the one relative who lives in London. When her husband (who also works on the films) doesn't want to go, I get to be her date.
oh! Alan Rickman!!! I think I loved Snape ever since the beginning of the saga because i love alan Rickman! He's a hero!!! i'm happy I wasn't wrong with the character I was rooting for. ;-)
Alan Rickman has been my favourite screen antagonist for a very long time. :D
AMAZING! We watched some of the premiere stuff online, it was really quite emotional!
Looks like the magazine that was given away with last months Empire. It's lovely. Nice photo of Jason Isaacs.
I admit, I got a little teary watching Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and JK Rowling go all wibbly during the speeches. I wasn't expecting that.
I'm glad the magazine is widely available. I was a little worried someone would ask for a complete scan. ;)
Holy crap! Wow. That's amazing.
It was pretty awesome. The funny thing was that I'd had free champagne the night before as well. On Saturday I went to a garden party at the bloke's college and I was worried I'd have to drink champagne again. Life can't be so bad when you're starting to be afraid of too much champagne.
Wow. How come you had a ticket?
My cousin works on the films. (I went to the HP6 premiere as well, although that wasn't nearly as big a deal as this one.) When her husband can't go, I get his ticket.
How wonderful! What an experience! I am so glad you got to go, and thank you for sharing pictures and your experience with your fellow Harry Potter nerds. :) I am immensely jealous of you getting to meet Alan Rickman, I have had a crush on him long before he played Snape so perfectly. Great pictures, what an epic adventure!
I do not get on here often, in fact, one of the only reasons I do is because I love your posts and adore your pictures, and I also like hearing about what you (and a few select others like Keith/Doc) that are not my facebook friends are up to. I had a feeling I should check lj today when I woke up, and am so happy I did. :) Thanks again for sharing pictures and stories of your amazing night!
My meeting with Alan Rickman was pretty brief. I sidled up, apologised for bothering him, asked for his autograph, thanked him and scarpered. I don't have any vested interest in getting familiar with famous people so I figured I wouldn't bother him for any longer than necessary.
:D Thank you very much for reading about my little foray into Glamourous Life. It was fun, but I'm glad I don't have to live there.
What a fantastic night! Sorry if I haven't paid close enough attention, I'm guessing your cousin did work on the movie?
Great photos! I can't wait to see the movie!
(did Alan Rickman smell nice?)
(and here's the not so nice streak in me: in one of the photos, I thought to myself, "that woman has an enormous bottom!")
Yep, my cousin is a digital colourist and has worked on the bulk of the Harry Potter films.
The wrap-up was actually pretty good. Some of the dialogue is amazingly cheesy, but that's par for the course for these films, I think.
I didn't get close enough to Alan Rickman to sniff him. But I imagine he smelled nice. ;)
I had to look up who Rupert Grint was, but I barely recognise the names of the other two when I hear them, so that's not surprising!
It certainly looks like it was an experience. :)
I only knew the names of the lead actors, Helena Bonham-Carter and Alan Rickman really. I was grateful to have the little magazine to look up the others. ;)
YESSSS. I'm immensely grateful I don't have to live in that world, though.
Chocolate fountain! MMMMM!!!
What does your cousin do?
She's a digital colourist. I'll post a link to her IMDB page under lock in a little while.
Champagne, live music & chocolate fountain; what more do you need for a party?
Wow, this is so cool, you should have taken me with you:)
If I had hidden everybody who wanted to go with me under my skirts, as was suggested, I would have had to wear an enormous ball gown. ;D
I am surprised to note that I am somewhat jealous. Looks like an awesome time. And I have been telling myself that my own anticipation of the opening has been about Iggy being excited about it.
I was surprised to find that it was such a pleasure to be a part of the occasion. I mean, I knew it was special because it's the last film and they were going out with a bang. But I didn't expect to be so drawn into it myself.
Wow, ENVIOUS. I gotta find my way to London one day. My friend Tracy was just talking about seeing John Barrowman in La Cage there!
It's a fun city. Hellaciously expensive, though.
Strappy red shoes & wrist!bling, & happy, delighted Nanila--what a fantastic post! *spins* I thought about you on the 7th--had hoped it was a (nicely) memorable experience... :)
I love those shoes. I don't get to wear them much because they're a little too flashy for formal hall. It was great fun getting dolled up for the occasion!
