In an interview with Empire magazine, Daniel Radcliffe and David Heyman elaborated about the “split scene” dividing Deathly Hallows: Part 1 and Deathly Hallows: Part 2:
“We’ve played around with a couple of places,” said Heyman, “and ultimately settled on a place that we think is very exciting, and I think quite bold, in that it’s not necessarily where one might expect. You want to give a sense of completion, on one hand, but a sense that there’s another piece, more to come. We tried one and then Steve (Kloves, screenwriter) came up with the idea to try it another way and when we tried that, it felt just right.”
Daniel Radcliffe added that the split is “at a very tense cliffhanger,” which may be a bigger clue for fans.
Tell us where you think Part 1 will end in the comments!

Remember when J.K. Rowling stepped down as patron of Scotland’s MS Society last week? Her actions were a wake-up call for Multiple Sclerosis Society leaders. According to local Scottish journals (The Press and Journal, the Scotsman, and John O’Groat Journal), a campaign has been sparked following her resignation.
Specifically, the Caithness group of Scotland has written to all the other MS Society branches of Scotland requesting an “extraordinary general meeting,” proposing that the society in Scotland break away from the UK-wide organization.
Mrs. Patricia Stanley, chairwoman of the Caithness group, suffers from multiple sclerosis herself. She explains she believes J. K. Rowling resigned because of unexplained suspensions of council members, adding:
“…We are as much in the dark as the public as to what exactly has been going on, but note that Ms Rowling has said that she has resigned because of the imposition of decisions upon Scotland by London.”
The possibility of the MS Society of Scotland’s independence from the UK-wide society may seem promising; the organisation can potentially be an excellent charity. We can only hope that all turns out well.

Emma Watson updated her official blog yesterday, saying “thank you” for her birthday wishes, as well as commenting on her university plans.
“I really can’t believe I’ll be at University in September. Still haven’t decided where to go, it just doesn’t seem real. When I do decide you will hear it here first!”
In other words, although rumours have been circulating that Emma has chosen a particular university to attend in the fall, for the record, she’s hasn’t yet.

How very true!
