Even when filming had finished on final outing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, the cast and crew were largely stopped from taking any mementos from the set.
However, that didn’t stop certain members of the cast from getting their own unique souvenir – or three in some cases – from their time filming on the series. But it seems that wands were generally a no-go “so they didn’t end up on eBay”, according to Warwick Davis.
But what was taken from the set? Here’s six of the stars with their tales.
1. Daniel Radcliffe
It’s probably only fair that Daniel Radcliffe was one of the few actors from the Harry Potter universe that was given a keepsake from the set.
Even better, he’s got two that symbolise how much he grew up while working on the movies: Harry’s glasses from the first movie and the seventh movie. “The ones from the first film are absolutely tiny now, but they are very sweet,” he explained.
“They are all lens-less as well. There was rarely ever any glass in the actual glasses, because of filming problems with reflections.”

Harry Potter Page to Screen: Revised and Expanded now has more pages devoted to the legacy of the Harry Potter films. In addition to the complete history of all eight Harry Potter films, the book now explores the theme parks in Florida, California and Japan, the sets and props in Leavesden, England and the House of MinaLima, founded by the graphic designers on all of the films, and located in London. With 1200 photographs, sketches, and diagrams, the book provides unbridled access to every aspect of the film-making process. It tells the stories behind each individual film and covers the design and technology behind all the astounding effects. This book pays homage to how one film became eight, how a few months became a decade, and how one author’s fantasy became the project of many individuals’ lifetimes-told by the people who were there, the people who made the magic real.
This book is the Bible for everything Potter and will stand as the most complete and final visual history of the Harry Potter movie story ever to be published. Book is now on Pre-Order for its November 13 release.
