Harry Potter: the Quest unlocked a new feature from the Harry Potter films focusing on the scene from Deathly Hallows: Part 2 where Neville stands up to Voldemort at the Battle at Hogwarts featuring commentary by director David Yates and actors Daniel Radcliffe, Matthew Lewis and Evanna Lynch.
Matthew Lewis: I really liked the scene in the courtyard with the Voldemort monologue and Neville stands up to him.
Evanna Lynch: It's as if it's over and it's kind of like there's no point in fighting anymore.
Matthew Lewis: It was really my first scene, and then we came into the studio and we went straight into the courtyard set for a rehearsal and Ralph [Fiennes] was there. It was the first I'd spoken to him, but he put me at ease anyway very quickly. We had a good time at rehearsing, then we went back inside to all the hair and make up, all the blood and the bruising and the ripped clothes. We went back outside to the courtyard and it was just so effective. I was just so angry at Voldemort that it was very, very easy to get into the character.
David Yates: He's battered in this story, and he's bruised and he's broken, but he gives this speech about why they're not gonna give up - which is suicidal. It's kind of like, "He must be insane." Everybody knows he's gonna be killed. But, yeah, it was lovely to see Matt do that, and he did it really, really well.
Daniel Radcliffe: Matt's put so much into these films and he's been so good. He does brilliantly in that scene.
Oliver Phelps: He couldn't even hold his frog together on the first film. So to go from someone who loves frogs to someone who's slicing up snakes, he's certainly turned into quite a warrior and headed the resistance at Hogwarts, which is a very brave feat for Neville to do.
Rupert Grint: He really steps up. He’s a real hero. It’s great to see.
Dan Radcliffe: I’ve got proper action hero dialogue. And I turn around and the cavalry come in behind me, and then I turn back and I say, “I’m afraid it’s quite extensive.” It’s quite cool, almost like he planned it. I won’t get to play action heroes forever. It should be one of those moments that just rouses you.
Dan Radcliffe: Harry sneaks into the Great Hall and chooses this moment to unveil himself. There’s this huge scene with Jim Broadband, Miriam Margoyles and Gemma Jones. Everyone came back, which is wonderful. And, Alan is brilliant at that speech.
David Yates: There’s a speech in the Great Hall. Alan says a couple of words like “…equally guilty” and Maggie was behind him, and I could see Maggie thinking, “Just get on with it, will you?” There’s a way that Alan uses words and the space between words which [make] you hang on every breath.
