Tuesday, 03 July 2007: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Premier at Leicester Square

Updated with photos.

The HP Premier was at 5 pm. i arrived at Leicester Square at 1030am. the queue was already so long. some fans had camped overnight. we were let into the square and settled in to wait. luckily i wasn't alone. Peter also came to the premier and we ended up playing games and eating McD while waiting for time to pass.

Two Slytherin witches. They were being interviewed by the london paper. It was funny cos the paper IS free. Literally handed out everywhere. The reporter told them; you get to be in newspaper for free. In the evening when I picked up a copy of thelondonpaper.com, i saw myself in the queue.

6 hours, 5 hours, 4 hours, 3 hours etc... at 3pm, reporters from all over the world started arriving and interviewing the fans. i arrived early in the morning and got in the second row. so, i was on TV. oh yea, in the newspaper too. one of the hundreds of fans waiting despite security alert of bombs. lolss..

Ronald Weasley being interviewed.

Hermione arriving.

At 5pm sharp, Ronald Weasley was first to arrive. It had started raining. thunderstorm. everyone was soaked. Ron was being interviewed and photographed by reporters and then signed autographs. Next was Draco Malfoy.

Neville Longbottom.

Then, Neville Longbottom. everyone was so friendly. surprisingly, Neville looked hot!! in the movies, he didn't really stand out. but he looked so good in person. also, malfoy was so friendly; he spent ages signing autographs and chatting with fans. so nice. among those who arrived were: Harry Potter, Ron, Hermione, Malfoy, Neville, Luna, Aunt Petunia, Filch, Fred and George Weasley, Ginny, Crabbe, Seamus Finnigan, Parvati, Kingsley Shaklebolt, Percy, Hagrid, and Prof McGonagall. quite alot actually. all very friendly. i didn't see Prof Dumbledore or Snape.

Cho Chang.

i took loads of photos and videos. oh yea, something funny. Daniel Radcliffe (harry) had starred in Equus( a play in which he was naked). so, one of the reporters asked us, who had seen the play? some girls answered yeah. they saw it. the reporter (a guy) asked: so have u seen him naked? the girl blushed and said yes. the reporter asked again: was he..was he...did u see his MAGIC WAND?? the girl blushed even more while we all laughed. she nodded. and the reporter asked: was his magic wand big? did it scare u? haha..it was so funny then. what kind of questions were these?? its not connected to the movie at all..the reporter even went on to ask: was ur boyfriend jealous that u've seen Harry's magic wand? wtf? hahaa..

Harry Potter

Beautiful Hermione. Hottie!

Hermione in front of me. I didn't ask for an autograph; just took photos. The only autograph I wanted was JK Rowling herself but she didn't come close enough to our side. Boo.

Luna Lovegood.
