Harry Potter actress Emma Watson explains how her relationship with her co-stars is now that the groundbreaking film series is over.
Harry Potter Actress Emma Watson has recently gone into detail about her relationship with her co-stars since the groundbreaking film franchise ended in 2011. As many fans surely know, the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone was recently celebrated with a massive reunion streamed on HBO Max, with the title Harry Potter 2nd Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts. The reunion included many of the film’s stars, including the lead trio Watson, Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, and each director to direct a film in the series. Everyone returned to tell their Harry Potter stories and reveal many secrets behind the scenes.
Many of the revelations presented in Harry Potter reunion came from Watson himself. While the actress who played the ingenious Gryffindor student Hermione Granger has had quite an impressive acting career (including playing Belle in Disney’s live-action Beauty and the beast), many viewers still remember her as the actress who first took on the role of Hermione 20 years ago. Watson had many interesting things to share during the reunion, including the details of her infatuation with co-star Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) as a young girl, and that she had briefly considered leaving Harry Potter series.
During a recent interview with British Vogue to discuss the latest Harry Potter reunion, Watson was asked about her current relationship with her co-stars Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Grint (Ron Weasley), and whether they had a “group chat.” Watson revealed that the three still keep in touch, even if they do “individually” rather than in a group text. Watson revealed that both Grint and Radcliffe hate apps like WhatsApp, and the three former co-stars tend to stay away from electronics, which has not helped with their “back and forth.” Read Watson’s full quote below:
“They both hate WhatsApp and their phones in general. In fact, like threes, we’re really trying to stay away from electronics, so it does not help for a massive amount of back and forth. We are not on a group chat, but we talk individually Rupert sends me pictures of [his daughter] Wednesday and I die. Dan and I generally try to calm each other’s nerves. We’re both mainly trying to stay out of the limelight, so it’s been nice to have each other’s support, knowing that there’s going to be another wave of attention. “
In comments that will no doubt delight many Harry Potter As fans, Watson revealed that she still talks to both Radcliffe and Grint regularly. According to the actress, Grint enjoys sending her pictures of her daughter, Wednesday, who was born in 2020. Watson also revealed that she and Radcliffe tend to correspond when one of them needs emotional support or their “nerves” reassured. She also said the stars were happy to have each other’s support, especially given the renewed eagerness Harry Potter fandon due to the reunion release as none of the three actors are particularly fond of public attention.
Watson’s answer is one that many fans would like to hear, and it’s very nice to know that the three Harry Potter co-stars still share such a strong bond. In the wake of two incredibly difficult years, it will certainly make it easy for hearts to see that these relationships have lasted past the famous series that so many people have literally grown up with. If anything has been learned by Watson and the reunion itself, no matter how dark things may seem, Harry Potter will always be there, ready to welcome fans back to Hogwarts – and its stars clearly feel the same.
