Kim Dao Goes to the Harry Potter Studio

Kim Dao and Amilie were dressed like Hogwarts school girls in white blouses and white and blue striped ties. The tour started with the set of the stairs at Harry Potter’s aunt and uncle’s home where the young wizard had his bedroom in the small room in the staircase called the cupboard under the stairs.

The two friends were escorted into the Hogwarts School dining room hall where the students had their meals. It looked like a fancy dining hall for King Arthur and his knights. When Amilie and Kim Dao left the dining hall, they went out into hall where they saw some models of buildings and costumes used for  Harry Potter. On the walls, were still shots of scenes from the movie original and sequels. There were mannequins of the different characters from the Harry Potter films. Kim Dao noticed that one group of mannequins had no faces and another group of mannequins had no heads. Learn more: https://www.odigo.jp/profile/kimdao

 

Probably Kim Dao’s favorite set was the Hogwarts express and train station where tourists could be photographed in front of the train and even go inside the train to see where Harry Potter sat when he traveled to Hogwarts School. The train and station were both used during the entire decade the Harry Potter movie series was filmed. Unfortunately, the train smelled musty and rancid. Kim Dao thought the smell would make her sick. After a minute or two on the train, Dao left the train to look at some more displays. Learn more: http://www.kimdaoblog.com/
