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

“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

“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.

This has totally made my like YEAR!Avatar ImageHermyluna says: 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*... Avatar ImageTiahn says: I wonder if whoever posted reads the comments... That means *SUE MIGHT READ THIS!!! O.O AUSTRALIA LOVES YOU :P lol.* Here in Aus is 1:00am so I'm a bit frazzled. This has totally lifted my spirits though, with my mum in hospital again tonight I was all mopey now I'm squeeful!^_^ I love how down to Earth Emma seems. She is a great role model. (I'm just gonna leave now, beofre I annoy someone with posting too many times :D) Avatar ImageA Chocolate Frog says: I love them. :) Deathly Hallows is going to be great!!Avatar Imagejanspach says: that will be so awkward for them, but it will be so great!Avatar Imagehepburn says: 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.Avatar Imagewizardinventor says: That scene is going to be so great in the fillm, I can't wait! I am sure that they are going to pull it off, in a funny and good way.Avatar Imagejenbabe705 says: hehehe I love this!! I mean its kind of akward for ron and hermione the first time too! I hope they capture that! Its going to be amazing!! Avatar ImageMJLeakyCon says: 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!Avatar ImageRachael says: Crosswords! Rupert just makes me laugh.Avatar ImageTami says: Ah I can't wait to see Hermione and Ron get together :) I'm sure Rupert and Emma will do a great job despite the awkwardness.Avatar ImageDolemite says: Emma is such an amateur.Avatar ImageCool Grandma2 says: 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".Avatar ImageBratpack says: Well, if everything goes the way I hope it does with this movie, Emma will be kissing more than just Rupert!! ^_^Avatar ImageLady of the Lake says: Oh I can't wait for that scene! It's going to be good.Avatar Imageemmalily says: I can't wait!Avatar ImageFonty says: However, we´ll have to wait another two years or so until we´ll get to see that kiss officially. :| But the press as usual concentrates on kisses, like they are the main points about The Deathly Hallows ...Avatar ImageGinevra86 says: That's very sweet. Anyone think they'll add the locketcruz scene, too?Avatar ImageKneazle1 says: So lookng forward to this film, hope part two is released near my brithday :)Avatar ImageScullythefirst says: The way they go on you'd think they were being asked to perform heart surgery. Actors (*eyes roll*)Avatar Imagenddulac says: Gee Rupert - what's a four letter word for a romantic expression involving the lips?Avatar Imagespiritbound says: Deathly Hallows film is gonna be immense. Gonna be way weird for them with that kissing scene though. And i guess emma might be kissing dan too if they do it properly. Avatar Imagemhaeyemhaeye says: She will kissing Dan too if they do it right. But I hope she kisses Rupes first. (Lame is me... :P)Avatar ImageMatea says: I think we're more excited about that kiss than both Emma and Rupert ;) and yes,maybe she'll have to kiss Dan too.that would be cool:) I soooo can't wait!Avatar ImageMelissaRochelle says: Oh I can't wait for it! Yeah Hopefully they do it right and she'll be kissing both of them. But I could see them taming down the Harry/Hermione kiss because they'll probably want movie goers to see Hermione's first with Ron, not Harry.Avatar Imageserp says: I think the R/H bits will be all the better with a tinge of nervousness.Avatar Imagevicky granger says: I'm so excited for this movie ! Avatar Imagebadger666 says: Hahaha. I can't wait to see them snog. That will be a good scene.Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: Hopefully, in the end, they manage to overcome the awkwardness and can deliver a spectacular kiss for audiences. :)Avatar ImageAraminta1987 says: how do crosswords ease the tension?Avatar ImagePureblood-Slytherin says: it's goin' to be awkard, they've known each other for the longest.. they've seen each other go through those awkard years.. lol.. but what if sparks go off between them.. hmmmm... lol.. Avatar Imagehp29 says: haha this made me happy to read, i can't wait to see this movie its going to be so fantastic!Avatar ImageNoella_Mansrot says: Of course, she'll have to kiss Dan too. That's the part we'll see in the first film, right? RIGHT? I can't wait for the silver doe!!! And if they do it right, the R/Hr kiss will just be... 8DAvatar ImageiLoveDolores says: Can't wait for both HBP and DH. It will be interesting to finally see some real interaction between emma and rupert. So far there has been less than no romantic notions :( But hopefully they will pull it together in HBP and DH. I can imagine how weird its going to be for Dan and Bonnie/Rupert and Emma. They are such close friends, almost sibling like and Dan's the only one with a snogging scene pre-HBP, so it will be interesting to see how the go. I can imagine the last movie is going to be a snoggfest :DAvatar ImageAmy Darlene says: this kiss should be dynamic... with at least 4 books worth of serious angst and trying to get them together... it has have that much resolution..... I'm not surprised they are a bit nervous... not only do they have to kiss...but it has to be a big kiss... Their entire relationship leads up to this kiss.. This is going to be good. Avatar ImageGobbledygook says: I think it will all work out.Avatar ImageAmanda979 says: Can't wait for the movie!!!Avatar Imagepensive says: Bland question that deserves a blah answer. Can't they think of something new to ask? The trio has such unique personalities that they could have asked more interesting questions that the run of the mill kind. at least this reporter didn't ask if she'd be kissing Dan too. lol. Seeing as they're doing two movies for one book, they could include that juicy detail of Harry and Hermione kissing...Avatar ImageNiphai says: Offcourse it will be awkward for them, being friends and collegues for so long... I'm really looking forwards to the movies <3Avatar ImageX-Lillie-Lovegood-X says: LOL - Crosswords . . . . . okaaaaay lolAvatar Imagecalliet2b4g says: oh i can't wait to see the pair of them kissing!!!Avatar ImageCellar Door says: Ha, Rupert Grint is hilarious! I can't wait for the DH movie!Avatar ImageGraymayne says: Actually it needn't be awkward if they approach it very technically, analysing every head movement, arm placement and body position beforehand and, if necessary mentally counting the required seconds. It only has to look good to the audience, not be an emotional moment for the actors. Approached like that a kiss is about as exciting as a sneeze.Avatar Imagebookmonster79 says: I soo cannot wait. I can just hear the clatter of basilisk fangs ;)Avatar Imagelawahine says: These movies make me feel like a teenager again and I can't wait to giggle about this!Avatar ImageLauraKeaton says: Lol. After knowing each other that long it's gotta kinda be like making out with your brother. Eww.Avatar Imagecat_eli_mon says: ooooooohhhhhh i really cant wait until the movie comes out i am sooo excited!!!!!!Avatar ImageGF_of_Seamus says: I can smell the awkwardness all the way in america ahahah but actually I hope this turns out well! just go for it girl!Avatar Imagehermyone08 says: Their nervous about the kiss and we can't wait!Avatar Imagekwickspell111 says: AHHHHHHHHHHH, I am so excited! I am even more excited for Harry and Ginny! I don't care if it's awkward for Rupert and Emma, as long as it's good on screen.Avatar ImageCatherine says: WOW, I culdn't be any more excited about this movie!Avatar Imagekendylgirlscout says: Of course it will be awkward, but on screen it will be awesome (i hope)Avatar ImageLily2005 says: I bet they have some good pranks prepared! Should make for some great outtakes. My very first kiss was in a stage play. I had to kiss this guy who was actually going out with the lead in real life. They said "oh, you kiss him and we'll just close the curtain for the end of the act". Well, we kissed and they held the curtain, held the curtain....for about 5 minutes, and we couldn't break until they closed it...his GF had steam coming out of her ears (she got to throw water on me in the next scene and boy did she go for it! LOL. Avatar ImageChrissyPuff says: I'm sure it wont be as awkward as they think it is... they are friends, so that will put them at ease. I cant wait to see those two finally get together in the movie... as Ron and Hermione of course:)Avatar ImageOneHeadedDog says: Haha, I find it cute that Rupert brings crosswords to do inbetween the takes.Avatar ImageChantyBabez says: Well I'd feel weird kissing one of my mates soo i kinda understand how she feels :D xxxAvatar ImageZivlok says: Hee-hee. I love how Rupert Grint does have a Ron-ish sort of humour. "I'll bring a stack of crosswords". Hee.Avatar Imagesparklycupcake says: R/Hr Forever, i'm gonna squee louder than sue ever has when i see that, haha! xoAvatar ImageAttolia says: Yeah I can't wait to see it either!Avatar ImageLittleLoony says: I'm glad they're making deathly hallows two movies- they'll be able to spend more time on the characters like hermione and ron!Avatar ImageGarden State Geek says: I'm not quite ready for them to be so grown up. But I guess I'll just have to get over it.
