Harry Potter fans at the Diagon Alley media preview last week had a great time star spotting. There were many famous faces from the movie version of the Wizarding World, and they took time out of their busy schedules to do interviews and participate in panel discussions about what it was like to work on the films and what they thought of Diagon Alley.
Two very recognizable characters are Draco Malfoy, as played by Tom Felton, and Bellatrix Lestrange, who was portrayed at Helena Bonham Carter. These two villains got together for a spirited question and answer session in the Leaky Cauldron during the Diagon Alley preview. If you'd like to hear what they had to say about their work on the movies and their thoughts about the new addition to Universal's Wizarding World of Harry Potter, click the video accompanying this article.
Hearing from the celebrities will probably make you eager to experience Diagon Alley for yourself. It officially opens to the public on July 8, and you'll want to get a two park ticket so you can ride the Hogwarts Express between Diagon Alley, which is in Universal Studios Florida, and Hogsmeade, which is in Islands of Adventure next door.
