How does this film compare to the others? It seems like there will be much more action in this one than in some of the previous ones.
Emma: It’s been very intense. It’s been a difficult shoot, almost every scene has been demanding in one way or another, whether it’s because of the action or because it involves a very intense moment on an emotional level. It’s been great because it’s really made me push myself to the limit and has given me the opportunity to show what I can do, and I’ve truly enjoyed it.
What do you think are the three most memorable moments of these past ten years?
Emma: The Yule Ball in Goblet of Fire was impressive. I’ll always remember that, for the costumes and the whole show. It’s a moment in Hermione’s life in which she breaks out of her shell and becomes a young woman. Another would be auditioning for the role of Hermione and being told that I had gotten the part. We did a screening for the movie in Radio City Hall in New York, to which 5,000 people showed up, and I remember getting up on stage and just seeing everyone with flashes, that was the moment when I knew how big and important the movies and what we’ve done are. I found out how big everything was, so I remember that quite well. I mean, there are many moments to remember… those are just three.
You were only ten years old or so when all of a sudden you became famous, and you’ve been famous since, but you seem to be well-grounded. How have you managed this?
Emma: I think that continuing to assist school has helped a lot because I have a life and friends outside the film industry, which is an industry where there is a lot of craziness, to be honest. [Laughs] And I don’t know, I guess it’s partly my education, partly my parents, and partly my personality. I don’t know, I think it’s been a good thing that we didn’t make these films in Hollywood. We’ve made them in England, we’ve made them in Watford, at the Leavesdon Studios, and we’ve really been in our own little bubble, so in a certain way we’ve had a very normal life, which I think has helped.
