The Deathly Hallows


Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 Featurette -Where We Left Off.

I listened to so many pieces of music for that dance, hundreds in fact, because I needed a piece of music that was poignant and tender but oddly uplifting. And I came across Nick’s piece and I loved it immediately. It has that capacity to lift you up and break your heart at the same time. So we found Nick Cave and he said he’d be happy for us to use it.

David Yates explaining how he came upon Nick Cave’s ‘O Children’ for Harry and Hermione’s dance.

"This was a profound moment because Ron had just left and it had affected both Harry and Hermione. There’s a line from the books where Hermione says, ‘You’re my best friend, Harry.’ And what’s sad is that she’s not Harry’s best friend - Ron is. There’s a loneliness there.”
 - Screenwriter Steve Kloves on Harry and Hermione’s dance scene.
