For months now a sort of weird, internet back and forth over whether Daniel Radcliffe will be naked in the final Harry Potter movie has persisted. Every time we think that rumor has finally been killed, along comes some new, strange bit of confirmation. This time it comes directly from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows director David Yates who told the Telegraph that not only will Harry be naked, but he’ll be naked in some sort of sexual scene with Hermione. Anyone else just throw up in their mouth?
Yates says the scene happens when Ron and Harry are battling some sort of monster who uses magic to show an image of Harry with Hermione. Yates explains what they’re doing this way, “It’s where Hermione and Harry dance together and is not in the book. It’s something we create for the film and is actually very tender… They also reveal some secrets about each other while dancing.” Color me confused. So they’re dancing naked? Frankly the way the Telegraph words the article seems designed to be intentionally confusing and I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that Yates never meant to say there will be any nudity in that particular scene at all. What he does definitively say about it is that it will be “sexy”.
It also seems clear that Yates does intend to have plenty of Harry Potter nudity in the film, even if it may or may not necessarily be in that scene with Emma Watson. “Dan has appeared nude in the past. There are a couple of scenes in the new film in which he will undress, but we’re still thinking about how we present it.” I’m guessing that’s code for they don’t know if they actually want to show his ass or just shoot from the waist up. Come on, it has to be from the waist up right? No need to show us Harry’s little Potter. He describes a second scene in particular where Harry will whip it out. Says Yates, “There is another scene in King’s Cross station, where Harry almost dies and sees Dumbledore. In that scene, he will also be naked.”
