Trivia that mentions this person:
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 [2010]
  • Having Bellatrix carve "mudblood" into Hermione's arm during the torture scene was not in the original script, but it was an idea that both Emma Watson and Helena Bonham Carter came up with together on the spur of the moment during filming. Filming that scene proved to be very intense for the actors involved (Most of the scene was cut to avoid an R rating in the USA and a 15 rating in the UK). So intense and brutal as it was that Helena Bonham Carter approached Emma Watson right afterward to make sure they were still on good terms.
  • It had been reported that the film would contain a few scenes of Daniel Radcliffe in the nude, leading to speculation among fans that the film would earn a more strict rating. This turned out not to be the case, although the scene in which visions of Harry and Hermione kissing appear to try to deter Ron give the illusion that Radcliffe and Emma Watson are both nude. In reality both actors wore jeans and Watson was provided with a strapless brassiere so she would not have to be completely topless. Director David Yates said that complete nudity was not necessary as the characters would be partially obscured by fog.
    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 [2011]
  • Both Emma Watson and Rupert Grint have stated in several separate interviews, that filming their much awaited on-screen kiss was an "absolutely horrible" experience, due to Emma's admission of Rupert being "like a brother." It took only six takes to complete; whereas the kiss between Harry & Ginny took around ten, Ron & Lavender approx. 15, and Harry & Cho took over 30 takes, by comparison.
  • Alan Rickman, Bonnie Wright, Devon Murray, Emma Watson, Daniel Radcliffe, Geraldine Somerville, James Phelps, Oliver Phelps, Matthew Lewis, Robbie Coltrane, Rupert Grint, Tom Felton, Josh Herdman and Warwick Davis (as Prof. Flitwick and/or Griphook the Goblin) are the only actors to have appeared in all eight movies.
    Cinderella [2015]
  • Emma Watson was in talks to star as the title character but a deal could not be worked out with Disney. She was later cast as Belle in Beauty and the Beast.
    Suicide Squad: Extended Cut [2016]
  • While reading the comic books in preparation to direct the film, David Ayer had Margot Robbie in mind for the role of Harley Quinn. However, Emma Roberts was offered for the role by Warner Bros., but she turned it down to star in [Scream Queens]. [?] Olivia Thirlby, [?] Imogen Poots, Alison Brie, [?] Rooney Mara, Olivia Wilde, Emma Watson, Emily Browning, Zooey Deschanel, [?] Lily Collins, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, [?] Sara Paxton, Amanda Seyfried and [?] Evan Rachel Wood were also considered for the role of Harley Quinn.
    Beauty and the Beast [2017]
  • Ryan Gosling was offered the role of the Beast, but turned it down to appear in La La Land instead. Emma Watson was offered the lead role in that film, but turned down that film to star in this one.
  • Emma Watson (Belle), Emma Thompson (Mrs. Potts), Luke Evans (Gaston) and Nathan Mack (Chip) all share the same birthday, April 15, which was also the date of the first cast read through.
  • During the ballroom scene, Emma Watson had a hard time not looking at her feet, because Dan Stevens was wearing steel toed shoes, and she was afraid he would step on her.
  • According to Emma Watson, when Belle had to be intentionally struck in the face by a snowball, the whole sequence required numerous attempts, until a satisfactory hit was accomplished. In the end, Emma had to keep moving her face (target) into the line of fire, in order to increase the chances of a direct hit.
  • Shortly after it was announced that Emma Watson would be playing Belle, Belle's voice actresses Paige O'Hara (the original voice of Belle in Beauty and the Beast) and Susan Egan (who originated the role on Broadway) expressed their endorsement and approval of Watson as a live-action Belle.
  • Emma Watson was considered to play the title role in Kenneth Branagh's Cinderella.
