For over a year now, there has been a lot of talk about nude scenes and romantic moments making it into the two Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows films, which will end the series [Read â€˜Harry Potterâ€™ Starâ€™s Nude Scene Confirmed For â€˜Deathly Hallowsâ€™].
Now that Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 1 is out in theaters, we finally got to see how provocative director David Yates took the seventh film.
But, the director has revealed that a lot more was going on romantically in the uncut version of the film, which will be included in the eventual DVD release.
According to Yates, there’s 10-15 minutes of extra footage, some of which involves Ron and Hermione flirting by the sea, where Ron teaches Hermione how to skip stones across the water.
“There was a scene we shot up in Scotland; it’s a scene where Ron is showing Hermione how to throw a stone on a lake, how to spin a stone on the lake, and Hermione is being really girly about it. She’s got a really rubbish throw, and she has to insist that Ron show her how to spin the stone to sort of entice tactility and physical contact, and it’s a really funny, tender and moving scene,” Yates described. “They’re both very funny in it, but it ended up on the DVD because the overall tone of our film, as you know, is quite intense.”
Yates said, “I wanted to explore their relationship a little bit more, so when Ron leaves it really breaks your heart,” but in the end he decided to cut the scene, feeling it didn’t fit in with the overall intensity of the film.
