The titular role of Harry Potter series, Daniel Radcliffe has said that the final scenes in the Potter series were looked fantastic. Daniel Radcliffe has suggested two years ago that he and the other lead stars should be replaced by older actors for the ’19 years later’ epilogue. He also claimed that using make-up to age the characters could cause distraction.
Daniel Radcliffe has said that the thing they did not want was for it to be distracting and he thinks that they figured it out. He added that they did it with prosthetics in the end and he is sure there will be little bits of visual effects for retouching on those moments when they did close-up shots. He told that when they have the prosthetic on for a long time, it is hard to maintain it that the illusion and with close-ups they need to fix it up.
Harry Potter portrayed, Daniel told that it is also a challenge to make someone who is 19 or 20 ages morphing them into fully grown adult. He thinks that they looked fantastic tough and if he do say so, particularly his face.
Besides Daniel, the producer of the Potter franchise, David Heyman has insisted that the original actors had to play the roles in the final scenes and said that after all they have been through with those characters, the way the generation has grew up with them, and they are the one who need to be on the screen till the end. He added that there is an expectation that even if it is not articulated, they need to be on the screen when it is coming to an end.
Earlier, the director, David Yates has explained that the final scenes had to be reshot because they did not work the first time around.
