Christopher Morris had one of the hottest tickets in town Monday ó to see the New York City premiere of ěThe Deathly Hallows, Part 2î at the Lincoln Center for Performing Arts. Morris is a flight attendant based in the New York City area who travels back and forth from a home in Newark, N.J.to his parentsí home in Salisbury.
Morris got to see the movieís stars, including Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint and Tom Felton, as they walked the red carpet and greeted the crowd, signing autographs and posing for photos.
ěI wasnít going to miss the opportunity to take their pictures at the last Harry Potter premiere,î Morris says.
He described thousands of children and adults lining the streets. One girl carried a sign saying, ěI have been here waiting for 6 days.î
Morris says he heard that actor Tom Felton ó who plays Draco Malfoy ó came by and delivered pizza to his fans as they waited.
Actress Emma Watson, who plays Hermione, ěwaved and smiledî for Morris as she walked in for a taping of the David Letterman show.
Morris notes that Josie Robertson Plaza is part of the Lincoln Center complex and is named for the late wife of former Salisburian Julian Robertson Jr.
Morris somehow managed to get a front row spot on the red carpet, he says, which was just lucky timing on his part.
