Emma Watson, Rupert Grint Talk Snogging for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

While at the BAFTAs over the weekend in London, England, actress Emma Watson made some new remarks on the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The Telegraph reports that Emma is a bit anxious about her first screen kiss as Hermione Granger, especially when it involves her long time co-star, actor Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley). Quotage:

"Well I've never had to do it before so I can't say I have any techniques," she says. "I've never had to kiss anyone on screen so it is all new to me.

"Of course I am nervous about it. But, apparently it gets quite boring after a couple of takes, that's what Dan said to me anyway."

The same article also contains older comments from Rupert on the upcoming kiss, where he said "As I've known Emma for so long, I reckon it will be 10 times worse,'' he said.

"I really love the seventh book, but there is no way it will be tame with the Hermione stuff.''

The actor claimed he fills in crosswords to ease the awkwardness between takes and will bring "a stack of crosswords" to the Harry Potter set.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows formally goes into production later this month, with part one due to be released in November, 2010, followed by part two in May, 2011.

I’m sure it’s only media who makes it a lot bigger deal than it really is… Always on the look-out for “dirt” on Harry Potter. And snogging is dirty

I’m looking forward to seeing DH!! But I agree with Hermyluna, they tend to make it such a big deal. I know it must be awkward but it’s there job after all.

This is such a unique situation…we’ve watched Emma and Rupert grow up. I feel awkward thinking about them, as actors, having to film it 100 times. However, when they bring Ron and Hermione to life on screen, I think that feeling of weirdness will subside and I won’t see Emma and Rupert. I’ll see Ron and Hermione. I can’t wait!

I’m sure it will be awkward for them at first. It probably would be easier with a different actor since they have grown up together. It is after all “acting”, I believe they can pull it off. It’s been a long wait for Hermione so I’m sure it will be “sweet”.

Well, if everything goes the way I hope it does with this movie, Emma will be kissing more than just Rupert!! _

Guess That Book

"This is very easy," Malfoy drawled, loud enough for Harry to hear him. "I knew it must have been, if Potter could do it.... I bet you're not dangerous at all, are you?" he said to the hippogriff. "Are you, you great ugly brute?"
