Deathly Hallows: comparing Harry to a Roman Emperor

Yahoo! released part of their Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows set interview with Dan about paranoia, leadership, and a change of scenery for Harry in the final installments of the series.

The main thing is we’re not at Hogwarts. It makes a huge difference. It gives the film a totally different feel. It might take people a while to adjust to this one, "remarked Daniel Radcliffe.

"Part One is a road movie. And the action is going to be pretty extraordinary."

And Radcliffe concedes that shooting the two parts of Deathly Hallows out of sequence has its confusing moments.

"It’s been odd trying to keep track of it all. I’ve forgotten stuff we’ve done. It’s been a weird experience."

Of course, this being a Harry Potter film, it’s not all fun and light. Especially not for the teen

“Harry is like a Roman Emperor in his last days and everyone is turning on him," moaned Radcliffe. "Harry is completely paranoid about what Ron and Hermione are saying about him. He thinks they’re doubting his leadership, but while he is asking people that, he himself is doubting his leadership. He has no plan, so he is pretty useless."
