We knew the kids in the Harry Potter movies were growing up fast, but we didn't realize this was in the cards: David Yates, director of the final two movies—based on the seventh and final book, The Deathly Hallows—confirms a nude scene for star Daniel Radcliffe as Harry.
According to a report on the Video Business Web site:
In one scene, "a horcrux [carrying a piece of Voldemort's soul] defends itself by producing nightmarish visions, and one shows Hermione and Harry embracing and kissing," explained Yates. "It's something intriguing and sensual for Rupert [Grint, who plays Ron] to react to, and Dan will be bare for that."
Mugglenet.com says the scene is drawn from the "Silver Doe" chapter in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. (No word on whether Emma Watson, who plays Hermione, will be similarly unclothed. We kinda hope not. After all, she's Hermione!)
This won't be the first time Radcliffe has dropped trou publicly: For the stage play Equus, in which Radcliffe appeared in London and New York recently, he performed a famous scene in the buff. (For the record, Watson is 19 and Racliffe is 20.)
The final two Harry Potter movies are slated for release next year and in 2011.
