  • Emma Watson Says Farewell to Hermione in “Deathly Hallows – Part 2”

    Emma Watson shares her fondest memories portraying Hermione Granger as the last instalment of the Harry Potter film series hits theatres this July.
  • You seem to take the media stuff in stride.  

    Watson:  It’s experience.  I’m twenty years old now and I was nine when I went into my first press conference, so you just get used to it.  It takes too much emotional energy to get upset every time something’s written that you don’t want to see.  You just have to let it go.  I would be a crazy person.  

    Did you realize that early on?

    Watson:  It took me a while to figure that one out, actually.  I mean, I would be lying if I said I didn’t still get upset.  I do still get upset.  But I don’t care quite so much, which is good.  I mean, I still get misquoted all the time.  And there’s so much information out there about me you think it would be very easy to check facts, but…

    So would you still think of an acting career or is it still up in the air for you?

    Watson:  No, definitely, and this film’s given me a lot of confidence.  I just did a movie called My Week with Marilyn, which is a Weinstein production with Eddie Redmayne and Michelle Williams and that went really well.  And, no, I think I will keep acting.  I think I’d like to make maybe one movie a year or something.

    This movie really gives all of you a chance to really act.  What does David Yates bring to that?

    Watson:  The thing about working with David Yates is that you always hear this word, “truth” and finding the truth and being honest and real.  He really hates anything false; he wants it to be from the heart.  And so I think that made me a better actress.  Especially at the very beginning; I felt I was playing such a character and when I was playing Hermione I could really put on this act and become this kind of big personality and use that to avoid being as truthful.  And then he just said, ‘Just do it from here.  Just forget all of that stuff.  Just be honest.’  That’s what I tried to do.  And I think it made a difference.
