  Columbus praises new Potter boss
Updated 06 April 2004, 13.48
Alfonso Cuaron and Rupert Grint
Any Potter fans worried about new director Alfonso Cuaron, fear not!

Chris Columbus, who directed the first two in the series, has said he's a massive fan of what Alfonso has done.

He praised Harry's first ride on the hippogriff Buckbeak, and the attack on the train by the Dementors. He said: "It's such a beautifully-directed scene.

"I keep thinking about those scenes constantly and how proud I am to be involved in them, but mostly how wonderful a job Alfonso has done."
