Daniel Radcliffe talks about 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2' on 'The Early Show'In between balancing an unrelenting media junket for 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2' and his eight shows a week on Broadway for 'How To Succeed In Business Without Really Trying,' Daniel Radcliffe has shown himself to be a thoughtful, engaging young man. His intellectual prowess was on full display Wednesday on 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM on CBS), when he used a historical quotation from Louis XIV to put the end of the Potter series into perspective.

Radcliffe offered a paraphrased version of King Louis XIV's dying words to explain his feelings on the end of the franchise: "Why are you crying? Did you imagine I was immortal?"

"It's that same thing of, it had to end sometime," he said. "And we may as well just celebrate it rather than getting too sad."

Rupert Grint talks about 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2' on 'TodayIf you've already read the 'Harry Potter' books, you know there are some surprises in store for the final installment of the film version, 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part 2,' which opens Friday. Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley, was on 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) Monday to talk about how the franchise ends, and what the cast's future might hold.

Hoda Kotb
pointed out that 'Deathly Hallows -- Part 2' has more action and is darker than previous films. "This is kind of the war now," said Grint. "This is a war film. We become soldiers, and characters naturally don't make it to the end." While he confirmd that Ron makes it, he wouldn't say if Hermione lives, and couldn't hold back a wry smirk when asked, much to Kathie Lee and Hoda's dismay. We're guessing the gals haven't read the books.

Rupert Grint, Emma Watson, and Daniel Radcliffe at the 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2' premiere on 'The Early Show'With Thursday's premiere of 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2' in London, the cast that has been together for a decade said goodbye to a franchise that made them stars and brought to life J.K. Rowling's novels. 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM on CBS) showed us madness from the red carpet as thousands of fans clogged Trafalgar Square and the stars of the series marveled at the experience.

"This is a fitting send off," said Daniel Radcliffe, also known as Harry Potter. "It feels right. It feels like we're doing justice to what is not just a fantastic film but a fantastic series." Emma Watson, who plays Hermione, said she felt like she was having an "out-of-body experience," that it was overwhelming but a "beautiful moment."

Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley, said it had been an important part of his life. "To have it just suddenly end is quite a weird feeling," he said. A weird feeling for him, for the thousands of people trying to get a glimpse of the stars in London, and for the millions of fans worldwide. 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2' opens in the U.S. on Friday, July 15.
