Ready for CAE p 76. Stephen Fry Pays Tribute to the Harry Potter Films. Extra Listening.
British actor Stephen Fry, the narrator of the British audiobook versions of the Harry Potter series, pays tribute to the Harry Potter films which receive an award for Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema.
Director David Heyman pays tribute to the 6,000 people who have worked on each of the Potter films:
"Over the past decade we've had the privilege of working with some of the finest people working today, in an atmosphere filled with pride but no ego, working on glorious fiction created by Jo Rowling.
"We became a family of sorts, we had an awful lot of fun."
Harry Potter author JK Rowling is equally enthused: "It's very strange to look back after seven films and remember how wary I was of letting anyone put Harry on the screen.
"I kept saying no and it was David Heyman who persuaded me.
"Being involved in these films has been one of the best experiences of my life," she adds.
