Emma Watson Discusses Additional Scene to "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" With SFX Magazine

Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) has spoken with SFX magazine about a scene added to the beginning of "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" that was not in the book:

[Director] David Yates asked Steve Kloves to write this lovely scene at the beginning of the movie which is not in the book, but which I feel is very important for Hermione’s character. You see her wiping her parents’ memories in order for her to start off on the adventure with Ron and Harry. She knows that Voldemort could try to use her parents as a device to get to her in some way, which means they might be in harm’s way. So she wipes their memories so they forget she ever existed. All the photos of her around the house disappear. It’s a really tough way for the film to start but really important to see the sacrifices that she has to make.

The upcoming issue of SFX will have a behind-the-scenes feature on "Deathly Hallows: Part 1."

Finally an additional scene that really enhances the story. JKR has Hermione tell about erasing her parents’ memories of her, but Yates shows its happening.

So touching. I’ll probably cry but it will be a very nice start I think.

It will be great, even for just a moment or two, to see Herione’s life – perhaps glimpses inside her family’a home – outside of Hogwarts.

Well, it WAS in the book, it just wasn’t told to us in the present. Great scene to “add” though, especially right in the beginning. It will definitely set the tone for the film. And as tealover said, it will be nice to have a glimpse of Hermione’s life. Her parents and her house, I love these little details.

Normally, I’d be mad at Yates for adding scenes (like the Burrow burning down) but at least it’s something that we know actually happened. And I’m kinda glad that there’s some real focus on Hermione, up to this point everything has been pretty much about Harry (obviously) and Ron, nothing much about her.

I wonder if they added this to give symmetry on screen for the three main characters. We definitely see Harry leave the Dursleys and Ron leave the Burrow, but this adds the dimension of Hermione leaving her home behind as well in a rite of passage of sorts. Now if only Rowling had told us what happened afterwards…did she leave her parents forgetting her forever?

technically, this was in the book. albeit in a very shortened way. Hermione mentioned to Harry and Ron that her parents now don’t know they have a daughter and their dearest wish was to move to australia under new names as well.
