Stars turn up for Harry Potter studio tour opening
Sunday 01 April 2012
Harry Potter stars turned out yesterday at the red carpet opening of a studio tour which gives fans a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the blockbuster film series.
Rupert Grint, Tom Felton and Bonnie Wright were among the actors at the grand opening of the Warner Brothers Studio Tour – The Making of Harry Potter. Hundreds of Potter fans queued outside the studios in Leavesden near Watford, where all eight of the films inspired by J K Rowling's magical stories were shot.
Local boy Grint, Ron Weasley in the Potter films, said: "This is the most glamorous I have ever seen Watford. It's exciting for everyone to see."
The three-hour walking tour's attractions include the original Great Hall of Hogwarts School, built for Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.
