Emma Watson, Rupert Grint Talk Snogging for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

While at the BAFTAs over the weekend in London, England, actress Emma Watson made some new remarks on the upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The Telegraph reports that Emma is a bit anxious about her first screen kiss as Hermione Granger, especially when it involves her long time co-star, actor Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley). Quotage:

"Well I've never had to do it before so I can't say I have any techniques," she says. "I've never had to kiss anyone on screen so it is all new to me.

"Of course I am nervous about it. But, apparently it gets quite boring after a couple of takes, that's what Dan said to me anyway."

The same article also contains older comments from Rupert on the upcoming kiss, where he said "As I've known Emma for so long, I reckon it will be 10 times worse,'' he said.

"I really love the seventh book, but there is no way it will be tame with the Hermione stuff.''

The actor claimed he fills in crosswords to ease the awkwardness between takes and will bring "a stack of crosswords" to the Harry Potter set.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows formally goes into production later this month, with part one due to be released in November, 2010, followed by part two in May, 2011.

However, we´ll have to wait another two years or so until we´ll get to see that kiss officially. :|
But the press as usual concentrates on kisses, like they are the main points about The Deathly Hallows …

The way they go on you’d think they were being asked to perform heart surgery. Actors (eyes roll)

Gee Rupert – what’s a four letter word for a romantic expression involving the lips?

Deathly Hallows film is gonna be immense. Gonna be way weird for them with that kissing scene though. And i guess emma might be kissing dan too if they do it properly.

Oh I can’t wait for it! Yeah Hopefully they do it right and she’ll be kissing both of them. But I could see them taming down the Harry/Hermione kiss because they’ll probably want movie goers to see Hermione’s first with Ron, not Harry.

I think the R/H bits will be all the better with a tinge of nervousness.

Hopefully, in the end, they manage to overcome the awkwardness and can deliver a spectacular kiss for audiences. :)
