You’d also probably think that the moment Rupert Grint, playing Ron, got to kiss Emma Watson, playing Hermione, was a memorable one for the actors.
But in fact, Rupert barely remembers the encounter – and in fact, found it quite awkward.
Grint has remained close friends with several of the Harry Potter cast members, and he revealed his mischievous side recently when it was revealed he has been charging food to his co-star Matthew Lewis’ restaurant tab for the last few months.
and romance, you probably think of Harry and Ginny Weasley, Hagrid and Madame Olympe Maxime, and of course, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.
But it wasn’t days of wine and roses for Ron and Hermione… The young actor who established himself as Ron Weasley in every Harry Potter film attended a special ceremony in Orlando, Florida in celebration of the film series and it’s legacy.
During an interview with The Huffington Post – an outlet that sounds like it could also be a news service in the wizarding world of Harry Potter -- Grint was asked where his character might be today.
“I’ve known Emma since she was literally 9 years old and we had this very brother-sister relationship. I have a memory of her face getting closer and closer.
Like, ‘Oh my God.’ I can’t really remember anything apart from that.” And the duo didn’t bother to practice the highly-anticipated moment. It was such a huge moment and there was so much expectation. ‘I never look back at that scene,’ Rupert told at a Harry Potter event across the pond.‘I’ve known Emma since she was literally 9 years old and we had this very brother-sister relationship.
