I held on to this moment from my childhood, long into adulthood. This scene is one of the rare moments in Disney film history when the lovers do not live happily ever after, and the poignancy of this scene always moves a chord within me. Every time I watch this scene, I remember the bittersweet sensation that filled me when watching this film as a girl, and realize how often saying goodbye has been the reality superseding the dream of ever after.
The hardest part about watching this bit is definitely the cast breaking character slightly and openly crying as they hug goodbye. It’s not just a goodbye to Harry Potter for them, it’s a goodbye to friends, no A FAMILY who hasn’t seen each other in God knows how long. They don’t know when they’ll ever be able to get together like this again just to relax and have a drink or make another show. This group of people who started it all together, ended it all together and they couldn’t leave without a proper goodbye.
so i slowed this so you see frame-to-frame.
look how terrified he was here. he’s going against not only his alpha, but his uncle peter. he doesn’t want to do this, doesn’t understand this, because this is his family and he’s alone and not strong enough for this—
i literally cannot even think about derek right now dont touch me anyone
”Now on a personal level, I was so proud of this because, and I didn’t know this. The gentleman who played the other Captain Jack actually said to me afterwards, he said ”you know”, because he was in tears he was crying, and I said are you okay? Have i done something? Did I do a James Marsters? Did I slip you a little tongue? And he went ‘no no’ and he started laughing, and he said ”im actually, im overwhelmed because, i want you to know, what you’re doing as a show, as a character is absolutely wonderful for all of us out here you know watching you, because my brother committed suicide a few years back, because he couldn’t deal with it, and society wouldn’t allow who he was, and he took his own life, and for me to stand here and play a character that represents who my brother was, is an honor for me, but also it means my brothers life wasn’t lived in any sort of vain, or his death wasn’t anything meaningless” and I had no clue, so for me as the actor for that episode, that was one of the most touching moments, but also it made me realize that in every episode from now on, that we’re not only telling stories we’re actually impacting peoples lives with the messages that we can put across. As we do, were making a difference. And that is why the episode ‘Captain Jack Harkness’, is probably one of the most important episodes to me.” - John Barrowman
