According to Tom Felton, “Harry Potter” costar Daniel Radcliffe had a crush on Cameron Diaz, and it was obvious on the set of the fantasy films where they were filming.
In his new memoir, “Beyond the Wand: The Magic and Mayhem of Growing Up a Wizard,” which was released on Tuesday, Felton revealed the movie magic that went into scenes that required flying on broomsticks.
“Beyond the Wand: The Magic and Mayhem of Growing Up a Wizard” In chapter 13, the actor who played the role of Draco Malfoy reveals that he penned the following: “The attitude was that if a piece of magic or any type of special effect could be done practically, that was the best way to do it.”
This was especially true in the early days when teams working on visual effects had access to less sophisticated hardware. Flying, an essential component of the franchise’s Quidditch scenes, was filmed in a studio in a room that was wrapped in blue or green screens so that the background could be added digitally in post-production.
This allowed the background to be inserted more realistically. “The broomstick was a metal rod fitted with an unpleasant cycling seat,” Felton recalled.
“The broomstick was used to sweep floors.” “There were stirrups for your feet and a harness to keep you from falling,” the instructor said. Then secured you to the pole with straps so that you couldn’t fall off, and they used a sophisticated seesaw apparatus to move you in all directions, including up and down, left and right.
They blew fans in your face to make it appear as though the wind was blowing through your hair. “It was vital that all of the players were looking in the appropriate direction for the shot,” the director explained, explaining that the scenes would be rearranged later.
According to Felton, this constancy in the eye lines was accomplished by having a member of the team hold up a tennis ball atop a long pole that had orange tape wrapped around it.
“When the first assistant director shouted ‘Dragon!’ or ‘Bludger!’ you had to look at the tennis ball like it was, well, a dragon or a bludger,” he added.
“When the first assistant director shouted ‘Bludger!’ you had to stare at the tennis ball like it was a bludger.” Felton continued by saying, “Sometimes there would be more than one tennis ball up there, and as they all appeared extremely similar to one another, after a while they provided us more individual stuff to stare at.”

We chose photographs that depict something or someone very special to us. There was a picture in Daniel Radcliffe’s possession of an especially stunning Cameron Diaz.
As for Felton, who is an avid angler, he “chose a picture of an even more magnificent carp” as his wallpaper on his computer. The actor Daniel Radcliffe, who played the title role of Harry Potter in all eight “Harry Potter” films produced between 2001 and 2011, has previously expressed his admiration for the actress Cameron Diaz.
During an interview with the radio program “Capital Breakfast” in April 2022, Radcliffe discussed his celebrity crushes and remarked that Cameron Diaz remained “quite high on the list” and that Drew Barrymore was still there.
During an interview with Us Weekly in 2014, he provided a comment that was quite similar to this one, adding, “I had images of her and Drew Barrymore posted on the wall of my bedroom.”
