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.

AHHHHHHHHHHH, I am so excited! I am even more excited for Harry and Ginny! I don’t care if it’s awkward for Rupert and Emma, as long as it’s good on screen.

I bet they have some good pranks prepared! Should make for some great outtakes.

My very first kiss was in a stage play. I had to kiss this guy who was actually going out with the lead in real life. They said “oh, you kiss him and we’ll just close the curtain for the end of the act”. Well, we kissed and they held the curtain, held the curtain….for about 5 minutes, and we couldn’t break until they closed it…his GF had steam coming out of her ears (she got to throw water on me in the next scene and boy did she go for it! LOL.

I’m sure it wont be as awkward as they think it is… they are friends, so that will put them at ease. I cant wait to see those two finally get together in the movie… as Ron and Hermione of course:)

Hee-hee. I love how Rupert Grint does have a Ron-ish sort of humour. “I’ll bring a stack of crosswords”. Hee.
