B.L. There must have been a comfort
level going into the second film but, aside from that, what was
the biggest difference for you between the two movies?
Just the fact that I kind of knew what I was doing because the first
one was my first feature film. The second one I knew what I was
doing and I knew the cast and crew so that made it more comfortable,
which made me a lot more confident.
B.L. How have you evolved since
making the films?
E.W. I think
I've learned a lot.
B.L. Your character, Hermione, has
changed since the first film, too. Tell me about the differences
E.W. She's matured
a lot. It was my first feature film and it was her first year at
Hogwarts. Now she's kind of settled down a bit, she's
not as obsessed about all of the schoolwork as much. It's all
good for her.
B.L. Now tell me about the relationship
between you and Daniel and Rupert. Not only are you all friendlier
in the movie, but also offscreen the relationship seems quite the
E.W. We all had a really
good time together and we are really good friends.
B.L. What did you guys do to get
E.W. I don't
know -- we just spent so much time together it just kind of happened.
B.L. What was the most fun thing
about playing Hermione this time around?
She's got some really good lines. Hermione always has a mouthful
of lines and he doesn't stick to two syllables -- there are
always about six.
B.L. Chris Columbus has said that
he won't be directing the next film. What makes him such a
special director and what will you miss most abut him?
He is one of the nicest guys. He is really funny and it's also
one of the nicest sets to be on. Everyone is so nice on set and
he's such a nice director it feels like he's in there
with you. It's not like he's just standing at the monitor
and screaming cut and stuff. He's really helpful. I think I
wouldn't have been able to so it if I didn't have a guy
like him starting me off because he's just such a good director.
B.L. Was there anything special
that you had to do to keep your energy level up during the filming?
Yes! Before every take, Chris would say "go sprint." So
I would literally have to run or do star jumps and stuff just to
get excited because we could get really tired.
B.L. The last few years have been
truly amazing for you and I'm sure your life has completely
changed. What's the thing that surprises you the most about
show business or what's happened to you?
If you had said to me before the first film that I'd have people
coming up and asking for my autograph I would have said, yeah whatever!
I completely don't believe you. But, it does happen and that's
probably the weirdest thing that's ever happened to me.
B.L. I'm sure all of you are
very excited about shooting the third film, what would you like
to see Hermione doing before it's all over?
What I would really like to see is Hermione play Quidditch before
the end of the books. Please??? I think playing Quidditch would
be really cool.
B.L. Where would you like to see
yourself going after Harry Potter is all said and done?
I think that I would like to continue acting but I'm just going
to go with the flow and see what happens.
