Radcliffe’s not in this scene, but he’s happily watching what Jim Broadbent, who makes his Potter debut in the Half-Blood Prince as Horace Slughorn, does with his several go-throughs.

‘‘I wasn’t in the first shot this morning but I went down to watch it just ’cos . . . I’m just interested in it and I want to see how other people act together. It’s about learning, for me,’’ Radcliffe says.
‘‘I like wandering round. Sometimes I go and play table tennis or I’ll read or I’ll play a computer game. But most of the time here I’m on set, so there is not a huge amount of down time.’’
‘‘You don’t really get a sense of time passing ’cos you don’t see daylight. So that can be quite depressing.
‘‘But I’m perfectly happy to be here because I’ve been here more or less nine years. I’m so used to the place.’’
‘‘I don’t like the idea of just walking out of this place and never seeing anybody again,’’ he says. ‘‘That would be very sad.’’
