James Phelps has called filming his death scene as emotional.

Phelps will reprise the role of Fred Weasley one final time this summer Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 brings the franchise to a close.

And he admits that it was a tough day as he said goodbye to his character.

Speaking to Parade he said: "I feel like a really close friend has died. It was more like a Saving Private Ryan scene than Harry Potter, so it was kind of cool, because every guy wants to be in an action movie and that's what this is.

"But I pretty much just laid there and fell asleep. I think it was more of a challenge for the other guys than me.

"Rupert [Grint] and Oliver [Phelps], they really upped their game for that one. Hopefully people will like how it's been done.

"I think that it was an emotional day for everyone when we shot Fred lying there. We did about five takes total, and then Oliver was done because it had emotionally drained him.

"It's really hard to put yourself in that position and imagine that kind of thing."

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 is released 15th July.
