They've spent a decade together. Now down to the last two weeks of shooting on the final Harry Potter film, Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson are facing the end of the magical ride with heavy hearts.

"I will be devastated [when it's over]," Radcliffe, 20, said Wednesday at the National Movie Awards in London. "There is nothing I watch without it triggering a series of memories. Everything [about the films] is so linked to my life. At the same time, it is exciting. It is the end."

"I feel like someone is dying," said Watson, 20, adding that she never expected just how big the franchise would get (even inspiring a theme area at Universal Orlando). "This kind of love and recognition is just incredible. It is also really emotional for me. I am proud."

Only Two More Weeks

Producer David Heyman said the crew is now shooting the final scenes of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in London. The movie will be split into two parts, coming out this November and next July.

"We will finish in two weeks' time," he said. "It is a very strange feeling. We have been 10 years together."

Radcliffe and Watson also spoke of their futures after Harry and Hermione. "I am not planning to do an awful lot this summer," Watson said. "I will take a bit of a break and enjoy that, really."

Radcliffe is due to appear on Broadway in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. Beyond that, he hopes he can leave the Harry character behind, or risk being relegated to doing pantomime shows at Christmastime.

"I hope I can find some kind of employment after this," he says. "Otherwise, I know panto, I suppose."
