Harry Potter newcomer Guy Henry has compared the schedule for the new movie with that of "the invasion of a small country".

Guy plays Ministry Of Magic official Pius Thicknesse in Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, which is being split into two films that are being made at the same time.

Speaking at the press night of West End show All My Sons, the actor said: "It's like the invasion of a small country, the schedule. I don't know how they get it all together."

He went on: "David Yates, the director, goes rushing from one unit to another, directing one scene with one bunch of actors and then to another scene from the other movie with another bunch of actors. If he ever has a break he goes to the editing suite and starts editing the first film so it's ready for Christmas. I've never seen anything like it."

The 49-year-old said he feels "very fortunate" to be part of the movie franchise, which is coming to an end.

He said of Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, with whom he had some scenes, "He's a gent of the first water. He's delightful."
