After more than 18 Emmy wins, the final scenes of the eighth and final season have been filmed and Kiefer - who stars as federal agent Jack Bauer - said the cast and crew had become a family.He said: "I think over the course of the eight years, we've had 16 marriages and 30-something children have been born. We were like a family. So, it's very hard to say goodbye."However the actor conceded the time was right to end the real-time drama."Howard Gordon [the executive producer]... normally halfway through the season will say, 'I've got a great idea for next year.' And he just wasn't feeling it," he said.Kiefer's co-star Mary Lynn Rajskub, who plays Jack's colleague Chloe O'Brian, was also saddened by the show coming to an end.Recalling her final day on set, she said: "When they said, 'Cut!', I don't know what I was thinking. And then they said, 'This is Mary Lynn's series wrap.' And I just looked around. The crew was surrounding me. And I just kind of burst into tears."Mary Lynn also dropped a few hints about the final episode, which is due to air on Sky1 on June 6."Right now, we see Chloe having to come up with Jack and go after him, and go against his wishes, which she's never really done," she said."She's being put in this position of power and having to grapple with these decisions that she's never had to do before, so she decides to take it on herself and go find him and confront him, and it's pretty explosive."
Current mood:artisticHarry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe is clearly trying hard to ditch his boy wizard image.The 19-year-old actor confessed in a revealing interview to losing his virginity to an older woman - whose age would raise eyebrows.Radcliffe admitted he celebrated reaching the age of consent, 16, in the customary manner with a much older girlfriend.But although he insisted the age difference 'wasn't ridiculous', he did say it 'would freak some people out'.
Actor Daniel Radcliffe has revealed he lost his virginity - aged 16 - to a much older woman whose age would raise eyebrowsIn an interview with US style bible Details, he also admitted he'd like to try his hand at playing a drag queen.The 19-year-old actor confessed he would love to play a cross-dresser just so he could wear lots of slap and eye make up.'I think part of me would love to play a drag queen,' he says in the September issue of Details magazine.
Radcliffe, seen here in New York will appear naked on Broadway in Equus'Just because it would be an excuse to wear loads of eye make-up.'Radcliffe, who has spent eight years playing Harry Potter, is soon to start a run of Equus on Broadway, New York.He will be on stage eight times a week, with full frontal nudity, just as he did in the hit London production.But that will be about as wild as he plans to get.The actor , who is known for living a quiet life and not succumbing to the wild party scene said vodka and Diet Coke was his beverage of choice, because he was a 'pansy-ass civilian'.Radcliffe also told Details that the Harry Potter phenomenon had not left him with child star angst - but confessed he suffered from the normal teen problems.'For the most part I've been happy every single day,' he said.'And all the times I've been unhappy, it's never been anything to do with Potter.'It's just been the normal, boring teenage crap. Insecurities, acne - all the normal stuff.'And although he will soon be playing psychiatric patient Alan Strang eight times a week, he said he had never spent any time on the couch himself.'I've been pretty happy. I've got a great family,' he said.'We're a very tight-knit group. We work very well as a team and as a tribe. I owe it to that.'Radcliffe added that he was currently single, and does not have room for a girlfriend in his life.'Most of my friends have been girls and I see how they are with their boyfriends and I think 'I couldn't do that,' he said.'I just don't have the time.
The actor's desire to play a drag queen is a far cry from his role as the boy wizard in Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire
Current mood:cheerfulIn Sorcerer's Stone, US paperback edition, page 96, it says that Percy had a silver prefect badge. However, in Order of the Phoenix, US hardcover edition, page 161, it says that the prefects' badges are scarlet and gold.
**In Prisoner of Azkaban, page 262, Harry sends a Patronus at Malfoy and friends (who were dressed as dementors) during the Gryffindor vs. Ravenclaw Quidditch game where Lee Jordan is commenting.
Then in Order of the Phoenix, page 342, Susan Bones asks Harry "So -- is it really true? You make a stag Patronus?" Harry says, "Yes." Lee responds "Blimey, Harry!...I never knew that!"
But he would have seen it at the Quidditch game two years before.
Possible Explanation: Harry's Patronus at the time of the Quidditch match may not yet have been developed enough to take the form of a stag.
**In the American version of Prisoner Of Azkaban, page 429, it states that "The exam results came out on the last day of term." On page 430, it continues: "Percy had got his top-grade N.E.W.T.s; Fred and George had scraped a handful of O.W.L.s each."
But in the American version of Half-Blood Prince, pages 79 and 99, Dumbledore says that the O.W.L. results are expected some time later today-- "today" meaning sometime during the summer holidays, and not while the students are still at Hogwarts.Dumbledore was Transfiguration teacher before he was Headmaster, and Remus Lupin was born in/around 1960 (in OOTP Snape is 35 or 36, so we can make an estimate on Remus' age in POA from that).
Now: On page 352 of the hardback version of POA, in the chapter entitled "Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs," Lupin says, "I was a very small boy when I received the [werewolf] bite," and on the next page says "It seemed impossible that I would be able to come to Hogwarts... But then Dumbledore became Headmaster...", and of course Dumbledore allowed Remus to attend Hogwarts.
Now skip ahead to OOTP. On page 321, in the chapter entitled "The Hogwarts High Inquisitor," McGonagall says she has been teaching at Hogwarts for "thirty-nine years this December." Assuming that McGonagall has always taught Transfiguration (never any other subject) at Hogwarts, and also assuming that at this point Remus would also be 35 or 36 (based on Snape's age), then Dumbledore would have been Headmaster for at least three years before Remus was born. So why did Remus say he wouldn't have been able to attend Hogwarts if Dumbledore hadn't become Headmaster after Remus was bitten?
Current mood:cheerfulHARRY POTTER THE SAGA
As the release of the trailer draws nearer, more photos are beginning to emerge online, including our first look at the Seven Potters scene.
You can see Harry transformed into all 6 other characters, as well as Arthur, Remus and Hagrid in the background.
The second photo is of Molly and Hermione at the wedding, looking a bit unnerved. Perhaps the Ministry has fallen?
