A new clip from the forthcoming “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2″ Blu-ray DVD has made its way online and features author J. K. Rowling and actress Emma Watson discussing the character of Hermione coming from book to the screen. In one moment, Miss Watson recalls a letter Ms. Rowling once wrote to her in which the author refereed to Miss Watson as “my perfect Hermione.” Check out the video here, thanks to our friends at Snitch Seeker:

Hermione was an amazing character :)Avatar ImageResaPotter says: Awww this is was so cute!:pAvatar Imagejasygrama says: All of the clips were so much fun to watch - I laughed, cried, & had a smile through each scene. Fantastic!Avatar ImageMoonlitFox says: Great clip! Can't wait for the DVD to come out!Avatar ImageFleur-de- Lily says: That cool clipAvatar ImageWeenyOwl says: What a great role model for girls Hermione is! Yes, there is more to aspire to in life than having the most fashionable clothes or best hairdo or makeup or most popular boyfriend or the most money to spend on the latest gadget. I hope that JKR's readers are taking that to heart. I look forward to the day when the up-and-coming young leaders in our societies are asked what inspired them and answer, 'Reading the Harry Potter books!'Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Very nice indeed...Avatar Image1HarryPotterFan123 says: Amazing! This is so cute! Jo is amazingly brilliant... and wise... and kind... and just perfect in every single way! I hope she knows she is... when she talked a little about her insecurities, it almost broke my heart, because in my mind, Jo is the definition of perfect! Emma really is the perfect Hermione. She is, like WeenyOwl said, a great role model... both herself AND her character, which is incredible compared to some of the girls on Disney. Which brings up another point... I'm so glad they didn't do this with Disney! It would have been like Jo said-she would have been that girl with glasses and a headset, who knows nothing about socializing and always is doing...math or something. Of course, Hermione is (in the beginning), a bit of a goody-two-shoes who always had her nose in a book, but not in the way that Jo talked about when she was stating her worries about casting Hermione. Not in, as I like to call it, the "Stereotype Disney Way". Anyways, overall just a fantastic clip! I cant wait to watch the entire thing when I get my DVD! Avatar ImageMidnightSun321 says: I'm going to wait to watch it when I get the dvd but it sounds awesome :DAvatar Imagekyrstalkris says: I love Jo, Emma, and Hermione! They have such a great influence on everybody, I love them to no end and I can't wait to watch the Blu-Ray DVDs!Avatar ImageTanderule says: My birthday's next month; we all know what I'm getting. Starts with Death and ends in Hallows. Yeah. I knew you knew it.Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: Awesome video. thanks a lot leaky guysAvatar ImageFresca says: Emma Watson is an amazing woman. She is both talented and wise, and I was so glad to hear that JKR thanked her for being the "perfect Hermione". Emma really brought our Hermione to full and glorious life on the screen. Avatar Imagepurplehogwarts says: Emma did play Hermione perfectly. Love the character!Avatar Imagemencia says: that made me tear up a bit, they have so much respect for each other and they are both my role models. Emma is the perfect Hermione, I can't imagine anyone else in that role and Jo of course is credited and rightfully so for creating Hermione the way she did because Hermione has great character, brains, loyalty, bravery, she's amazing but of course anything Jo touches is amazing :DAvatar Imagemaddison says: Love you always Hermione and you too Emma !!!
