On January 1, 2022, the Harry Potter reunion on HBO Max, an event that fascinated fans all over the world. During the special episode there were so many revelations. It was also found out that Emma Watson considered leaving the Harry Potter saga before the fifth film, The Order of the Phoenix.
The actress, in fact, during a scene in which she recalled some of the moments from the set with Rupert Grint, revealed her fears derived from the fact that she feared having to play Hermione forever.
“I think I was scared, and I don’t know if you also ever thought it could last forever. It happened to me in the Order of the Phoenix period, and things started to get a little more complicated for all of us. But later, the fame issue found its place. The fans wanted me to move on and make it, which was a great thing.”
Emma Watson was 10 when she was cast to play Hermione in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Since then, his life has drastically changed, and fame has dominated every aspect of his daily life.
In the reunion, director David Yates also explains that when he arrived at the helm of Harry Potter and The Order of the Phoenix, producer David Heyman and Warner Bros. told him that Emma wasn’t sure she wanted to return to make another film.
“We never talked about it in the movie days because we were so young”, Daniel Radcliffe also recalls. “As a 14-year-old boy, I would never have addressed another my age, saying, ‘Hey, how are you? Everything is fine?'” However, all three main actors had common thoughts, even if they never talked to each other.
