My random assortment of awesome pictures and words.
JKR: I was having a girly chat with Emma in her dressing room about three or four years ago and she said to me “I think I’m gonna end up having to kiss Rupert, aren’t I?” And I said “Well if I write it the way I’m planning to write it, you’ll end up having to kiss both of them.” And she was mortified and rolled off the sofa laughing.
EMMA: I was only fourteen! And the idea was absolutely horrific! [x]
Emma: I have moments where I feel quite isolated by the uniqueness of my life experience. I’ll never be able to explain to anyone that I meet new what my life has been like. You kind of have to be in it. They are the only two other people in the world who I don’t have to explain myself to; they’ve done everything with me. I feel like when this is over, our friendship will have a new importance for the three of us because I think that when it’s over, we’ll need each other more than we do even now.
“There’s nothing interesting about looking perfect—you lose the point. You want what you’re wearing to say something about you, about who you are.”
David Yates’s most vivid memory of Emma is watching her suddenly let go of her steely professionalism and for once just be young and free. They were filming a death scene from Hallows Part 2 on a freezing-cold beach in Wales. The actors were miserable, especially Emma, who hates the cold and dislikes getting wet even more. But out of nowhere, he recalls, “She ran into the icy water and stood there, holding herself against the waves with her arms outstretched, just laughing.” In that brief moment he got a sense of what it must be like to have a multibillion-dollar industry dependent on your every move and be only nineteen years old.
