Harry Potter ready for romantic close-up

LONDON, Nov. 18 (UPI) -- Harry Potter, Britain's favorite boy wizard, steps into adulthood in his new movie with his first on-screen kiss.

The upcoming "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" features a smooch between Harry, played by Daniel Radcliffe, and 18-year-old unknown actress Katie Leung, who plays comely Hogwarts witch Cho Chang.

Radcliffe told the Daily Mail he jumped into the scene with both feet, but he sort of denied reports he milked the scene to about 30 takes.

"It was reported that we did a huge amount of takes, but actually you do that number on any scene," Radcliffe said. "Once you have covered it from all the camera angles you've done about 30 takes."

The "Order of the Phoenix" comes out in July and will feature plenty of magical action for fans who aren't into the mushy stuff.
