It is impossible to imagine someone else doing Hermione Granger in Harry Potter. Emma Watson has made her mark in people’s minds and hearts. However, according to a latest report by Digital Spy, the actress has almost considered quitting the franchise during her appearance at the Harry Potter reunion. Watson speaks about dealing with fame and more in the special.
According to DigitalSpy, Emma Watson shares why she almost left the Harry Potter film franchise in one of the serious moments on Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts. The actress also stated that one of the reasons for the same was that she felt “lonely.”
Speaking about going through that period, Emma recalled, “I think I was scared. I don’t know if you ever felt like it got to a tipping point when you were like… ‘This is kind of forever now’.” The actress also added.
However, Emma went on to say that it was fan support that helped her overcome whatever worries she had, and that the cast members all wanted her to succeed and had each other’s backs.
The Harry Potter reunion special is scheduled to debut on January 1, 2022. Watson will appear in the special episode alongside Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Tom Felton, Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Ralph Fiennes, Jason Isaacs, Gary Oldman, James Phelps, Oliver Phelps, Mark Williams, Bonnie Wright, Alfred Enoch, Matthew Lewis, and Evanna Lynch. In addition, filmmakers David Heyman, Chris Columbus, Alfonso Cuarón, Mike Newell, and David Yates will discuss their experiences directing the Harry Potter films.
