MOVIE THEATER – Harry Potter without Emma Watson? Unthinkable and yet. While the special Back to Hogwartswhich will celebrate the 20 years of the saga will be broadcast on January 1, a first extract with the interpreter of Hermione Granger was unveiled to the British media on Tuesday, December 28.
This long-awaited show by fans is an unprecedented meeting of the actors of the saga which promises to be rich in emotion. In the images that our Anglo-Saxon colleagues were able to consult, such as DailyMail and The Independant, Emma Watson, now 31 years old, confides having hesitated to leave the adventure during the fifth part, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007), when she was 16 at the time.
Loneliness and a celebrity overload
The actress, a graduate of Brown University, explains having found her diary of the time, in which she did not seem “happy”. “I realize that at that time I was really alone. The question of fame ended up having a significant impact, ”she explains. Facing Rupert Grint, Ron’s interpreter, she confirms having considered stopping everything, “scared” by the growing fame that the franchise was reaching.
“I think I was scared,” she says. I don’t know if you’ve ever felt like you’ve reached a point of no return where you’ve been like, ‘It’s kind of forever now’ ”.
For Tom Felton, the interpreter of Draco Malfoy, loneliness was also a factor of discomfort for Emma Watson. “People forget everything she’s been through and how she did it gracefully. Dan [Radcliffe] and Rupert [Grint] were together, I had my friends … But not only was Emma younger, she was also all alone ”.
The director David Yates also explains for his part that the producer David Heyman and the studio had warned that the young actress “was not sure she wanted to come back for this film”. However, Hermione’s interpreter has decided to continue the adventure and specifies that no one has had to convince her to do so. “The fans really wanted us to be successful, and we were all really supportive of each other. It was great, ”she recalls.
Harry Potter: Return to Hogwarts will be broadcast on January 1 on the American platform HBO Max and on the Salto platform in France.
