The third annual “A Celebration of Harry Potter” event kicked off Friday, Jan. 29 at Universal Orlando Resort with the film series’ co-stars Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley), Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley), Katie Leung (Cho Chang), and Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) all in attendance.

Just before the Opening Night ceremony, the actors took part in an intimate Q&A session with invited media where they fielded questions about everything from whether or not they would return to the series should they ever be asked (Lynch would most certainly love to reprise her character; Lewis not so much) to when was the last time they had watched the films or read the books.

But the most poignant moment of the 30-minute session was when the actors were asked to reminisce on their time with Alan Rickman, who played Professor Severus Snape and tragically passed away earlier this month.


For the complete Q&A session, watch the below clip.
