Emma Watson Definitely Knows That Harry & Ron Wouldn't Have Lasted Two Days Without Hermione Granger

Emma Watson Definitely Knows That Harry & Ron Wouldn't Have Lasted Two Days Without Hermione Granger

Emma Watson has finally said what we all knew all along — Hermione Granger was the true star of Harry Potter.

“Hermione was that perfect example of turning on its head this initial prejudice that she gets,” Emma shared in her recent EW cover story.

Emma played the role of Hermione for over 10 years, opposite Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint.

“Hermione finds a way to wield her intelligence and become really the leader in this group of two other boys and that’s kind of the role that she assumes,” she added, reflecting on the exact impact she had on young girls.

“Harry is much more intuitive. Ron is just along for the ride. Hermione is the one with the plan. She’s in control.”

As Ronald Weasley would say, “We wouldn’t last two days without her.”

However, Hermione wouldn’t leave her friends behind for anything: “What is so fundamentally beautiful about Hermione is her loyalty to that group of friends. She’s really the glue that keeps that trio together. It’s fundamental, and the boys knew it, and they really treat her as if they know that.”

Emma Watson Cried Seeing 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' for the First Time

Emma Watson Cried Seeing 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' for the First Time

Emma Watson got super emotional while watching Harry Potter and the Cursed Child!

The 26-year-old actress explained that seeing Noma Dumezweni portray Hermione in the play brought her to tears.

“It was so strange. It was so emotional seeing Noma’s performance in a way that I had not anticipated at all. I went to the play…and she walked in the room and I just spontaneously burst into tears,” she explained to EW.

Emma added, “I had played that character so intensely up until that point, that to know that Hermione was going to be okay — I know it sounds crazy — but to know that everything turned out all right and everything in the world was okay, that there was someone else carrying her on and carrying her forward…it was just such a relief.”

J. K. Rowling Says a 'Cursed Child' Movie is Not Happening

J. K. Rowling Says a 'Cursed Child' Movie is Not Happening

Aww! If you were looking forward to watching Harry Potter and the Cursed Child hit the big screen, you’re unfortunately out of luck.

J.K. Rowling says those rumors that have been going around claiming the play is turning into a film are definitely not true.

“I know a lot of people are looking for reasons to be cheerful today, but there is NO TRUTH to the rumour about a #CursedChild movie trilogy!” she wrote on Twitter on Friday (January 20), seemingly referencing Inauguration Day.

The play opened in London last year, picking up Harry Potter’s story 19 years after the last novel ended.

There is a silver lining, though, as Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is still coming to Broadway!

Bonnie herself was actually sorted into Gyffindor on Pottermore!

After meeting with Fantastic Beasts star Dan Fogler, Bonnie headed over to Universal Studios Hollywood to check out the The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
