KF: So the London premiere of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince was this week. How did the audience and fans respond to the film?

EW: We had the most amazing amount of rain. Unbelievable. And there were like hundreds of people out there, and they just stayed. They were drenched, drenched all the way through. And everyone stayed. In fact, it's probably one of the biggest crowds we've ever had. So, for them to have stayed, considering how awful it was, was just incredible. I think we have the most dedicated fans of any. It's amazing.

KF: Do you find that the fans in America are just as dedicated, or are the British fans more dedicated?

EW: Oh, gosh. That's a really hard question. Gosh, I'll have to wait until tonight [at the New York City premiere] and see. Interesting question.
