Oprah.com Interview with Emma Watson Now Online

Watson Interviews

Oprah.com has a lengthy new Q&A with Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) online, in which the actress discusses her role in the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince film, her work on the final two installments of the series, and her life as a soon-to-be college freshman.  First, on the subject of the upcoming sixth film, Miss Watson relates her opinion that this film is "the most funny [yet]. It has much more to do with the relationships between the students, and there's two quite big love triangles going on in the middle."  In regards to her character's budding romantic interest with the Ron Weasley, played by actor Rupert Grint, the actress reveals her thoughts on how she would have dealt with a similar love triangle.  Quoteage:

"I probably would have acted pretty similarly, actually, I'm not going to lie. I think she's in a tricky situation because she hasn't really even realized herself that she really likes him. Like, she's still working it all out. It's still kind of confusing for her. So yeah, I think I would have acted the same. She tries all the old tricks. She tries to make him jealous. She tries to handle it with this really horrible guy who likes her. His name's Cormac, and he's horrible. It's very sweet how she tries to handle it."
Moving on to the Deathly Hallows films, which are currently in production, Miss Watson admits that she feels "really strange" about the end coming, yet "I'm kind of not quite there yet. I have a lot left to do, and I'm kind of in denial as well. I don't think I'm really going to realize it's over until it's really over, if that makes sense."  On the subject of Deathly Hallows, the actress reveals that she is just "such a big Harry Potter fan, but I just wanted to read it for my own pleasure and enjoyment..."  Miss Watson goes on to say this of what she knew of the end of the series before she read the final book:
"The only thing J.K. Rowling told me, she told me I would end up having to kiss both Dan [Radcliffe] and Rupert, and I was like, "No way!" This is before I read the last one, so I was like, "Oh, god." Because in the last one, Ron has a vision when he sees Harry and Hermione kissing in his vision, so I'm going to have to do that for the vision. Even though it doesn't actually happen, I still have to do it. I'm going to end up kissing both of them in the last film. Ugh, it's horrible."
Finally, the interview concludes with some discussion on her upcoming move to college in the States.  Miss Watson admits she is excited about "everything" with this new college experience: "I'm looking forward to studying again, and riding around campus on my bicycle, and having a roommate…and just everything. The whole experience."

I envy the person who does end up being her roommate; it would be fantastic to share a room with someone as gracious, considerate, and thoughtful as Emma.

Ah-ha! So they are going to do the H/Hr Locket kiss. I thought maybe they’d get round it somehow… poor Emma. High-five for Topshop :)

I’m glad they are doing the Harry/Hermione kiss. Somehow i didn’t think they would. Love how Emma doesn’t even mention Burberry as a favorite designer brand…. ;)

Can you imagine seeing Emma Watson riding her bike on campus. I don’t know how that will work out for her. I hope she doesn’t get stalked or attacked.

OMG! I love JKR teasing Emma that she’d have to kiss both Rupert and Dan. She’s got such a wicked sense of humor. She also told Dan he would have a death scene. I wonder what she told Rupert??
