"There was something really nice about seeing Daniel with his kids at the end.I really thought Daniel did a marvelous job of being older. "Even though it's funny, it was really quite sad to think that, 'Christ, our lives have flashed before our eyes. ' " Radcliffe also told MTV News that he found scenes in the film "heartbreaking," especially Alan Rickman's performance during Severus Snape's flashback sequence.

The actress revealed both smooches were ‘equally awkward’ but after the initial discomfort, she started getting bored.

She said at a press conference to promote Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two: ‘It was obviously hard to put our personal history to one side because we did grow up together but I think they don’t mind me saying, if you’ve done this once, four or five times kissing gets quite boring.’ The actress had to kiss Radcliffe in the first part of Deathly Hallows and has to pucker up to Grint in the latest – and final – movie.

Currently starring as Arthur Kipps in the adaptation of Susan Hill’s The Woman In Black, Radcliffe has recently been cast as gay poet Allen Ginsberg in thriller Kill Your Darlings.

‘There’s this idea that Emma, Rupert and myself are the best of friends who always hang out together.’I’m just going to put out there, Emma and I text all the time but Rupert and I never text each other, we never see each other,’ he revealed to the Daily Mirror.

there's a weird parallel between that and our lives.

That always gets me." For Tom Felton, it was the epilogue scene that concludes the movie that almost brought him to tears.
