About OotP and David Yates (2006): "This film is about Harry fighting his inner demons more than dragons. It's about the emotional journey. So I think David is the perfect director for that. Also, his previous work has all been quite politically based, like "Sex Traffic" and "The Girl in the Cafe," and with this film you see much more of the world outside of Hogwarts. I think this film will be quite relevant to what we're all experiencing at the moment with all of the terrorist attacks. The film eerily coincides with all of that."
