Her sudden and dazzling fame, which she struggled to endure as a teenager. “People tend to forget how much she went through and how she held on, with grace”, said the actor who played Draco Malfoy, Tom Felton. “Dan (Radcliffe) and Rupert (Grint) were together, I had my friends while Emma, ​​besides being younger, was all alone.” In a video posted on his social networks, the actor also revealed footage of the rehearsals ofHarry potter, where we can see his beautiful bond with the actress.

The young actress achieved great and rapid notoriety due to the success ofHarry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, released in 2001. She was eleven years old at the time.

A feeling shared by his two acolytes in the film, Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley). “NOTWe never really talked about it. I guess we were going through things at our own pace, we were in the moment at the time. It didn’t really occur to us that we probably all had similar emotions, ” Rupert Grint comments in the excerpt.

Emma Watson, now 31, assures us that no one needed to convince her to stay. “The fans really wanted us to be successful, and we were all really supportive of each other. It was great.”
