The Vulnerable Side of Voldemort? [video]
Posted 06.30.11 by Mandy
It's just a little over two weeks until the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2, and Warner Bros. is keeping a steady stream of clips and featurettes coming. The first featurette, released three weeks ago, showcased an early screen test with stars Daniel Radcliffe (Harry), Emma Watson (Hermione), and Rupert Grint (Ron).
This new featurette explains horcruxes and touches on a small deviation from the book that will be included in the movie. Radcliffe and director David Yates explain that Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) slowly loses his mind as the different portions of his soul are destroyed one by one. This is definitely a pretty small change from the book (where it was explained that Voldemort's soul was so decimated that he couldn't tell it was being destroyed), but could add some dimension to the profoundly evil character. It's certainly a better change than the attack on the Burrow that movie makers added to Half-Blood Prince.
