Emma Watson Knew the Most about Outcome of Hermione Granger, Says J.K. Rowling

In the first of two new articles (see also above story on Christian themes) MTV has now posted a short interview with J.K. Rowling where she reiterates again how she revealed details in advance to several actors about the fates of their characters in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Saying she told all of the cast bits about the fates of their individual characters, Jo says that she “told Emma Watson the most.” She also tells again the story that actor Dan Radcliffe got a bit more than he wanted about the fate of his character, Harry Potter.

“I went down to the set and Dan [Radcliffe] and I had a real chat and it was great. And I said to him ‘Dumbledore’s giving me a bit of trouble.’ And he said, ‘But Dumbledore’s dead!’ And then immediately ‘Don’t tell me! Don’t tell me!’”

But that didn’t stop Radcliffe from “pretending that he knew the ending of book seven,” Rowling laughed, saying his loose lips got him his just desserts. “He went down the corridor to the other kids, because they were still being schooled at the time, and he said, ‘She’s told me, I know what happens,’” Rowling related. “Of course, then he was besieged and started to panic.”

“He got a little taste of what it’s like to be me,” the author cackled. “Serves him right!”
