Potter stars work their magic as they prepare for premiere

Tuesday July 7, 2009

Their transition from fresh-faced youngsters to fully-fledged stars has been closely followed by celeb watchers for the past nine years.

And as Rupert Grint, Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe came together for a photocall on Monday, the trio looked like they have firmly cemented their Hollywood status.

The promo shots came as the three screen stars get ready for Tuesday night's world premiere of Harry Potter And The Half Blood Prince in London where cast and crew are to wear white ribbons on their wrists as a mark of respect to murdered actor Rob Knox

Having just finished the sixth installment of the series, the young actors are gearing up to say goodbye to the franchise.

With the final film, Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part II due to hit screens in 2011, the pals are looking to the future.

"I'm very excited and looking forward to a bit of normality for a while, it would be nice," says 19-year-old Emma, who plans to attend university in the US. Daniel meanwhile is continuing his stint on Broadway.
