Conclusion of the Harry Potter Movie Franchise

Last week I read an article about the conclusion to the Harry Potter films. The story focused on the three leads of the series Daniel Radcliffe (Harry), Rupert Grint (Ron) and Emma Watson (Hermione). I truly found the article refreshing. Here are these three young people who have made a name and a good deal of money for themselves off of these films. They've spent half of their lives with many of the people making these films and I'm happy to report that they are insightful enough to be appreciative of it all from the great opportunity of being a part of this franchise to recognizing the people behind the films. In many ways they are going to miss this part of their lives. It's become such a part of them. More than that, they are really going to miss all of these people associated with the films as they go on into their adult lives.

I also enjoyed seeing how the three of them have grown over the years, what their perspectives are now on film and such, and what they have planned for the future. Some of their experiences were so opposite and yet they were working on the same film. I say good for all of them. I've always thought they were a good group and hope to hear that they've overcome the plight of many kid stars (especially those who grew up in Hollywood) to become healthy, happy adults in whatever pursuits they decide upon.

Good luck Daniel, Rupert and Emma!
