Emma Watson Discusses Additional Scene to "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" With SFX Magazine

Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) has spoken with SFX magazine about a scene added to the beginning of "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" that was not in the book:

[Director] David Yates asked Steve Kloves to write this lovely scene at the beginning of the movie which is not in the book, but which I feel is very important for Hermione’s character. You see her wiping her parents’ memories in order for her to start off on the adventure with Ron and Harry. She knows that Voldemort could try to use her parents as a device to get to her in some way, which means they might be in harm’s way. So she wipes their memories so they forget she ever existed. All the photos of her around the house disappear. It’s a really tough way for the film to start but really important to see the sacrifices that she has to make.

The upcoming issue of SFX will have a behind-the-scenes feature on "Deathly Hallows: Part 1."

I think is good doing this, though isn’t in the book, because is important for those who don’t read the books, understand what sacrifces she made to help harry to destroy the hocruxes, since she mentioned to harry. what she had to go through :(

Well, it’s not like the burning of the Barrow… I agree that this scene existed in the book or was supposed to exist. @kmac23va I think Jo told in some interview that Hermione found her parents after the Hogwarts Battle and returned them their memories.
Emma has described this scene so many times that I already immagine every recap of it)))
Can’t wait to see it in the movie! :)

This scene should be very touching and heartbreaking to actually see. Since we only hear about it in the book, seeing her do this will show more of how much she loves her family and Harry and Ron.

I’m totally looking forward to that. I thought it might be more awesome if they were actually in Australia, on the beach or something, and her parents said “Hermione this was a great idea, Australia for our anniversary”. Then Hermione smiles sadly… “Obliviate.” They stare at her a moment, say “Excuse me, can I help you?” Hermione shakes her head and wanders away from the camera…a flock of seagulls fly across the camera, and she’s gone.

But photos disappearing is cool too. :)

im so glad we will see this part in the movie. I don’t think there’s going to be a dry eye in the theatre!

Great thing to add, I can’t be bothered to properly echo what everyone else has said, about it being talked about in the book. Sure will be sad to see..

I don’t know how I feel about it being at the very beginning of the movie. I don’t know, I just don’t want to see Hermione first. I want to see Harry at the Dursley’s or something pivotal to the main plot, such as Narcissa and Bellatrix at Spinner’s End. I hope they keep the scene at Malfoy Manor as the very beginning. It’s not going to ruin the whole movie for me or anything if it is, I’m just being kind of nitpicky and “traditional”.
Other than that, I’m likin that their adding scenese like this that were only mentioned in the book

It’s supposed to be a montage of all three at the beginning, Harry, Ron and Hermione. The Dursleys leaving Privet Drive and Hermione obliviating her parents which were in the book and Ron outside the Burrow(seen in the Part 1 trailer).
