Being a part of Harry Potter cast was like winning the lottery for the golden trio. Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and the Emma Watson became household names almost overnight. However, in the realm of acting, the experience was quite unusual. The trio of actors practically grew up in front of the camera, investing a decade in the eight films. However, even after ten years of working together, the actors could still wow one another with their performances.
Rupert Grint’s performance in ‘Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows – Part 2’ was praised by Emma Watson.
Watson hasn’t been hesitant about admitting that her Harry Potter co-stars have consistently impressed her with their abilities. In a recent interview with JoBlo, the Noah star remembered a time when Grint startled her. Watson was intrigued by Grint’s response to Fred’s death when filming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2. She had to tell herself to keep acting because she was so astonished.
“Rupert’s brother dies in a scene, and the great thing about Rupert is that he’s a pretty self-contained human being,” Watson said. “You don’t see him get emotional too often.” He transforms into this other creature the moment the camera rolls, and he has so much, and I am like, Where did they come from? Anyway, he cries in one scene, and I remember forcing myself to keep acting because all I wanted to say was, ‘You’re fantastic!’ That was incredible!’ I’m not sure where he got it from.”
The ‘Little Women’ star was also impressed by Daniel Radcliffe.
Grint wasn’t only one who managed to win Watson over. Radcliffe’s boldness in approaching the work was another something she admired. According to the Beauty and Beast star, Radcliffe went all out in his action scenes.
“With Dan, I’ve had similar times where I’ve just been stunned,” Watson said. “I’m referring to a lot of the stunt stuff Dan had to do in the previous film. He’s brave, and he’ll dive into it, building all of these things, and I’m just astounded that he gives it his all, and that’s admirable.”
Watson discusses how she approached acting in the ‘Harry Potter films.
Radcliffe’s proclivity for plunging into a situation appears to be quite distinct from Watson’s singular acting style. Watson claims to rely more on her intelligence and will plan out a scene in her head before putting it into action.
“I believe I have a kind of an academic, almost esoteric approach to the way I perform, and we were just talking about what it meant; what does it mean for her?” Watson was willing to share. “Does it have anything to do with her past?” What does she have to say about it? I gave a fantastic performance because I had the time to be clear in my brain about what exactly was going on.”
Grint, Watson, and Radcliffe all had distinct approaches to their roles in Harry Potter. On the other hand, the trio of performers appears to have made their different acting approaches work.
