For more than half her life, actress Emma Watson has bewitched audiences as Hermione Granger, a pivotal character in the Harry Potter film franchise, based on author J.K. Rowling's beloved series.
Now, this English beauty is all grown up and revealing what sets the sixth film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, apart from the rest. Plus, Emma dishes about college, dorm life and her on-screen kiss with co-star Rupert Grint.
Kari Forsee: First of all, congrats on Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the sixth film in the series. Since you've seen it and the rest of us haven't, can you tell us what makes this one stand out from the rest?
Emma Watson: I think this one is the most funny. It has much more to do with the relationships between the students, and there's two quite big love triangles going on in the middle. It just has more romantic interest, which I think is great, and I think the fans will really respond to that, because sometimes the films can be quite dark and quite heavy. I think it's nice to have that kind of lightness to it, as well. So yeah, I'm really happy with it.
KF: Especially leading up to the seventh film, which deals with pretty dark subjects.
EW: Really dark. No, exactly. I think it was really important that we got a little bit of comedy in there. Definitely.
