The stars of the eighth – and final – Harry Potter film cast a spell on New York Monday night.
Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson and the other stars of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 walked the red carpet for the film’s U.S. premiere, as hundreds of bespectacled fans cheered and waved signs outside of Avery Fisher Hall. (The film has its world premiere in London last week).
Radcliffe had turned 11 when he started filming the first Harry Potter film back in 2000. Now 21, the young actor has set up temporary digs in New York as he’s appearing on Broadway in the musical comedy How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 hits theaters on Friday, July 15.
Fun fact: The Harry Potter films have grossed more than 6-billion dollars worldwide, making it the most successful film franchise in history.
