With most of young America in the grip of J. K. Rowling’s best-selling series, the movie of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, which may cost as much as $150 million, has the potential to be a monster hit—but some die-hard fans may be hard to please. Every adult involved, from Rowling herself to Home Alone director Chris Columbus, swears their first rule was fidelity to the book. In this exclusive 22-page portfolio, Annie Leibovitz gets a preview, while the author reveals the challenges of choosing the Hogwarts location, filming a Quidditch game, and finding the perfect Harry to star alongside John Cleese, Dame Maggie Smith, Richard Harris, and Alan Rickman.

Interview

NICKELODEON MAGAZINE: Was it hard to be a star of a movie when you didn't have much experience?
DANIEL RADCLIFFE: It was nerve-racking. The first day on the set, I was very nervous. I was used to rehearsing with about eight other people, and then I got to the set and, including the extras, there were like 150 people there.

NM: What's the hardest part about acting?

DR: Getting the right emotions. Generally, I try to think about a song or a book, and that emotion comes out with my expressions.

NM: What was a hard scene to do?
DR: The mirror scene. It's the emotional center of the movie, so I had to get the right thought into my head.

NM: Did you have to do any special training to play Harry?
DR: Yes. Because I did a lot of my own stunts, I had to do a lot of gymnastics training. One of my stunt doubles was this thin guy called David Holmes. He's a great gymnast. He's been teaching me gymnastics, and it's so much fun.

NM: What was your favorite stunt?
DR: There was one shot where I was hanging one-handed from my broomstick, twenty-two feet in the air. I was wired up to the broom, with a huge airbag underneath me, and they moved me around up there. That was pretty cool.

NM: Would you want to be friends with Harry in real life?
DR: Absolutely. I like his curiosity and his loyalty. And his magic powers, too. He's so serious, but at the same time he can be very funny.

Daniel's Favorite...
Harry Potter book: Number two, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. "I suppose it's the darkest, but so much goes on in it."
Character: Hagrid
Scene To film: The chess scene. "The set is amazing."
