Emma Watson at Deathly Hallows Part 2 premiereIt's true: The Harry Potter film franchise is wrapping up, and it's worse than your most sentimental high school graduation, last day of camp, and end of the summer combined. There are a LOT of tears being shed, and rightfully so. The series was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the three leads, Emma Watson, Daniel Radcliffe, and Rupert Grint.
Emma, in particular, told reporters that she's really going to miss Rupert and Dan, and will "miss being Hermione ... being in her world." Tearing up throughout the Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 2 premiere, she noted that she has felt privileged to play the role and "be a part of these films."
Wow. You know, it's funny. I wouldn't have guessed Emma would have such a heavy heart about the films coming to a close. After all, she seemed to be the one who was the most "over it."
Remember how as soon as they wrapped shooting for the last film, Emma chopped off her Hermione locks for the pixie cut she's been sporting for the past year? She even said that it was "liberating" and something she had been wanting to do since she was 16. So with the last film out of the way, she was FREE at last!
But I guess it's not so black and white, huh? Kinda like when you think you CAN'T WAIT to leave home for college, and then find yourself sniffling as your parents walk away from your dorm. She'll clearly miss the franchise that has been an integral part of her life for the past 10 years, the one that made her acting career. Props to her for realizing that.
What do you think of Emma's teary reaction to the premiere of the final Harry Potter film?
