Mexico City.- This Saturday premieres on HBO Max Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts, a special that brings together several actors from the saga on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone.
And one of the stars of the franchise, Emma Watson, who gave life to Hermione Granger, confessed in a fragment of the project why she was about to leave the franchise, something that was previously revealed by David Yates, director of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
“At times I felt lonely. I think I was scared. I don’t know if you ever felt it but there was a turning point that was like, ‘This is forever,'” she explained to Rupert Grint, who played Ron Weasley and showed himself surprised by the statements.
“Fame had come to me in a big way. No one had to convince me to do it. The fans really wanted it to be successful and we all really support each other,” added Watson.
For his part, Grint also acknowledged that it was not easy to assume fame at such a young age.
“I also had similar feelings to Emma’s. But we never really talked about it; I guess we were just living it at our own pace, and we were living in the present at the time.
“It didn’t occur to us that we were probably all having similar feelings,” he noted.
Tom Felton, who played Draco Malfoy in the series, was very understanding with the interpreter.
“Dan (Daniel Radcliffe) and Rupert had each other; I had my buddies, whereas Emma was not only younger, but also lonely,” he opined.
