Harry Potter Hits New York
Daniel and co greet screaming fans and talk about snogging…

The Harry Potter stars whipped up a magical frenzy across the pond last night (July 9), as Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince got its New York premiere.
Two days after getting drenched at the London premiere, Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and the less famous ones all took to the dry, sunny red carpet in New York, greeting fans – many of whom arrived as early as 4am to get close to the sexy sorcerers.
"It's like traveling with the Beatles," director David Yates told MTV News.
Talking about the film, Radcliffe and Watson both revealed that their respective snogs were quite weird.
"I've known Bonnie [Wright, who plays Ginny Weasley] — even though she's obviously stunningly beautiful, as you have seen tonight — I've known her since she was 9 and I was 11," said Radcliffe of locking lips with her. "So that was kind of weird at first. But we got used to it. We got over it pretty quickly."
Watson, whose character snogs Ron Weasley in the film, seconded that opinion.
"It was really awkward. Rupert's like my brother, so it just felt very, very strange," she admitted. "But he's a gentleman, and he was a great kisser."
The American celebs in attendance at the Half-Blood Prince premiere included Ashanti, Lance Bass, Vanessa Williams, Chevy Chase, Diane Sawyer and Frasier (sorry, Kelsey Grammer).
