Harry Potter stars welcome fans behind the scenes

Monday April 2, 2012

Harry Potter stars Rupert Grint and Tom Felton invite fans to get a spellbinding glimpse behind the scenes of the blockbuster franchise.

The actors were joined by Bonnie Wright at the grand opening of the Warner Brothers Studio Tour – The Making of Harry Potter.

Hundreds of screaming Potter fans lined up outside the studios in Leavesden, near Watford, Hertfordshire, where all eight of the films were shot.

Local boy Rupert  – Ron Weasley in the Potter films – said: "This is the most glamorous I have ever seen Watford.

"There are so many memories from in there and to share them with everyone is great.

"There are so many highlights but the model of the castle is out of this world."

The three-hour walking tour's attractions include the original Great Hall of Hogwarts School, built for Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone.

Some of the most iconic sets include Dumbledore's office, Diagon Alley, the Ministry of Magic, 4 Privet Drive, the Gryffindor common room and the Weasley kitchen.
