Emma Watson has been playing Hermione Granger on the silver screen for nearly a decade. Now as the "Harry Potter" series approaches the end with "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1" hitting theaters on November 19, Watson dishes on what she'll miss the most about shooting the films and why the latest movie is "bloody good".
Watson tells OnTheRedCarpet.com she was surprised at "how bloody good" the latest film is. She says,"For me I was just blown away by the fact that we have managed to make it better again."
"It's intense from the minute it comes on, it's really dark, it's really scary, and it's just the most real and visceral and exciting one yet I think," Watson says. Despite its dark tone, Watson says that the film has gotten solid audience feedback. "The best thing I've heard people say is that it really makes them feel something. It's got a lot of heart, which is cool."
So after nearly ten years, what will she miss most about filming the franchise? "The excitement, this is nuts. This whole experience has just been crazy," Watson says. "It's just been so full on. It's going to be very strange to go back to a pace of life that isn't a movie a year."
Watson is keeping busy these days outside of the acting world by studying at Brown University in Rhode Island, but is quickly learning the life of a student can be just as stressful as an actor's. "The red carpet is more nerve wracking, the midterms are like stressful, anxious, up all night kind of vibe," She says.
If given a choice between walking on the red carpet and cramming for midterms, Watson answers, "I'd probably take the red carpet at the moment."
