[FLASHBACK] Emma Watson at the 'Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone' cast announcement + photocall in London



August 23, 2000:

Some of her quotes:

"I'm afraid I'm really gonna bore all of you but I'm afraid I'm gonna stick in into a bank until I'm 21. 
"I don't want to change." 
"Well so far it sorts of turns things upside down. It's... I don't know, I've never had anything happened to me like this before. I've never done anything and it's just gonna be so amazing to see how things are done but... I don't know what to say." 
"I don't have a word for it but I was pretty excited and I really look forward to filming." 
"I'm not top form goody two shoes no but I'd like to be top form."

Considering they were 10 and 11 years old at the time, fronting the media in an eagerly awaited announcement they handled themselves very well and given the exposure they have had over the years (particularly Emma) each seems to have grown into a 'normal' adult, escaping the fate of many a young actor who enjoys fame and fortune.

Kudos to all 3 and the people around them.

Adorable!Rupert has been most diverse in his choice. He is helping to produce a series and hopes to to more producing. That is the man to watch.

I like the way Grint is developing. Snatch is great. Yes, he would make a good Viking in Berserker. Let's all write a mail to Mel Gibson.

Where are all these Rupert stans coming from? Lol. I don't get the appeal tbh.

Wow so cute

i guess from the pictures of the trio. Rup and Dan also have a lot of fans. A picture like this offers such discussion. I think it is great.

May be he prefers to chose diversity in characters & quality of acting rather than be in the limelight always.

I feel old 😑

Lmao, lets not get crazy. I like some of the things Rupert has been in but he also has some misses in terms of bad acting/movies. Same with Radcliffe.

Anonymous said...

All actors miss the mark with a film. Look at the circle, hanks and watson missed the mark big time. I guess that comes with the trade. I keep sharp tabs on Rupert. What I recall that his acting was never criticized as bad, but the movie as being less. Okay, in his last play, he was said to be over the top the bit with his character, other than that he had good reviews. Rupert was always my favorite. Therre is a quiet working through the odds. He is paving his way. He helped produce all 10 Snatch movies, and as a whole the reviews are not bad.

Rupert like Dan has developed his acting skills. In my opinion Rupert has a wider stretch in what he is able to present. I would love to see him in a comic artist roles. I read once that he once tried creating his own comic.

Rupert has the most natural talent from the kids in HP. Emma tho has the looks and Hollywood is more focused on that. Daniel and Rupert will never be huge stars because of that.

Rupert is and was the best in the trio tbh.

Eden, do you know news of Emma retiring from acting at 27?

Eden said...

I haven't seen anything suggesting she's retiring.

Anonymous said...

what retiring?? she is just 27 there is a lot more things which should have to come on her ways. are you guys joking because there are some people who just start working as her on age, and there are so many of women celebrity who are working until the age 50-60 so on. if she is a girl does not mean she has retire may be a take a break is good option but not retirement according to me its a big word for the young people.

Anonymous said...

People are saying that because she just had the biggest movie of the year and did nothing to use that huge push. She is not officially retired but you can say that. Its been almost 3 years since she shot a movie. In Hollywood thats an eternity.

Rupert is getting more handsome as he gets older and filling out. I am glad that he put aside that unkempt style. Rupert is the best actor. I think in time, directors will see that. Dustin Hofman is no handsome man, neither is Robert DeNiro, but they are great actors. Emma climbed the mountain with her beauty, but nothing in talent has developed, so we will see what happens with her, unless she graciously retires. She could have any career.

Retirement in 2017 mediamass. They also state though that she is up to be next Bond girl. what can you believe nowadays?

Anonymous said...

What the hell is going on with the Rupert Grint stan lol, remember when people though that Scorsese was interested in him xD, don't get me wrong he's not a bad actor, but he's not great, just OK, we get it, you love Rupert Grint, I don't know why sound so bitter haha.

Anonymous said...

mediamass literally say on their own site that it's all satire, lol.

emma hasn't shot anything in quite a while, so we'll know if she'll keep working or not.

Anonymous said...

i also wonder why she isnt signing any movie also she became less active on social media. i feel she changed alot she was much happier during harry potter days now she became more serious and muture. but i like old emma. i dunno may be only i noticed this thing.

Anonymous said...

but rupert need to work out on his publicist he should be on social media and be active getting on the limelight i guess.

Anonymous said...

That site is gargabe. Speculation is going to happen tho. Emma hasnt been photographed in public since two months. Last movie was two years ago.

"What the hell is going on with the Rupert Grint stan lol"

Not entirely sure either. Grint is ok in a couple of roles but not ground breaking by any means.

Anonymous said...

I think her leaving the internet alone for the most part is an effort to be even more private. She hardly shares anything that isn't work related at this point.

Anonymous said...

To think that they have had no official training and are millionaires before they are 30, they are doing great. They are not on drugs or a scandal noodle. They live their lives as artists for better or for worse. I think Grint is the onc to watch for the long haul.Emma is already fading unless she loses a ring again. Emma is intellectually more capable as either one of the trio therefore other avenues are open to her. She has not had a new film in almost 2 years and for Hollywood that is fading factor unless you are such a great actor that the studios know that you have a two year intermission after every few films, and then the offers are sizzling. I do not think that is the case for Emma though.

Anonymous said...

There are quite a few actors and actresses who do not use public media and are doing fine. Rupert is not willing to relinquish his privacy to be known. He is relying on pure talent.

Anonymous said...

Rupert Grint is better actor than Dan or Emma. He is not off in self
presentation. he plays the roles and moves on. Good man.

Anonymous said...

So why are you feeling weird if they are praising rupert, they are praising him bc they genuinely feeling something about him he has something which the the two and other hp cast don't i guess,thats it :-)

Anonymous said...

He's really not doing that much more than Dan or Emma though. He's prob the most natural actor in the trio, but he's not really doing any projects that people really care about, either.

I think all three of them will be lucky to get anything of substance within the next five years or so, tbh. HP goodwill has done them some good, but if it hasn't created stellar acting careers by now, it probably never will.

Dan and Rupert will probably continue doing small roles, and Emma...who knows. Maybe she'll quit, maybe not. We'll see.

Anonymous said...

ohh people here are so rude towards Emma i don't know about Hollywood but i don't think she is fading 2 weeks ago she wins mtv award for both BATB and circle movies, and second thing her movie BATB is one top grosser all the time. she had 2 movies released this year which is not so long how can be she is getting fade.

Anonymous said...

It is interesting to watch their career development. Rupert Grint was my favorite from the start. His acting shows the most range. I liked the blog about Gibson's Viking film Beserker. Now that would be sweet for Rupert. Please, please, please Mel!

Or he doesnt. :)

Why she will quit i am hoping she will have something to do definitely.she is taking break its her choice.

How can you say that he doesn't ??

Anonymous said...

Dan, Rupert and Emma /don't/ have stellar acting careers??? U want them to be as revered as michael gambon and HBC and Maggie Smith now itself or what? Otherwise i don't see how u can say they don't hv good careers.
Also, Emma has done only 2 blockbusters post HP, and Dan has done 1. Both hv done small level films, mostly. Rupert and Dan hv done stage, Emma wants to as well. I think they're all doing roles they want, which is wht is fun, after already getting so much recognition from HP.

Anonymous said...

They are young and spreading their wings.Dan and Rupert both did theatre. That is a plus indeed. Rupert also took a break and came back with a plan. He is doing TV, producing and a comic strip is plan. He takes different kinds of roles to show his range. I think Rupert will be big time. He has lots of talent to show. A good director needs to look his direction and dare to let him play a good role.His fans would be behind him 100%.

Emma seems to go off on tangents. She is on an extreme film about the media world and shuts down after that and wants to be more private because she realized something... What she realized the Duh from a film. That is the reason why many celebrity do not use social media to protect their privacy. She gets on a roll about something and keeps the tire roling until it finally rolls out and then she seems to lose interest. All 3 of them should have done acting classes. Frank Dillane, after having played Voldemort, went to RADA for his BA in acting and is now getting good roles. Directors also want to know if an actor has a certian understanding of film, which does not have to be taught each time you begin a film. Of course you either have the talent or you do not. I think Rupert does, but he also has done little to better his skills. He and Dan did theatre, which is a great plus in learning experience. I took a RADA course six years; what is learned academically and in practice one needs to get started. It's like if you can't type, you can't be a typist.
Frank Dillane is probably the one to watch. He was a creepy young Voldemort. Although, I believe strongly in Rupert Grint. He should do something for himself as do Emma and Dan. Dan has gotten better, but he is not near as good as Rupert. Rupert can play with his face and eyes. I like that. Dan looks kind of glumb in parts in his roles, as if he is not sure what he is doing. I am thinking of that FBI film; i cringed. Oh well- so much for opinion. I wish all three of them the best though.

I bet Emma is rethinking her career. Good for her!

I don't understand how any of the HP kids could think they did not need training in acting. They were given a gift but did nothing to get better in their craft. The best actors playing intelligent, normal roles went to theater school or drama school. This is the height of stuck-upidness. It is almost to late now. Frank Dillane did it right.

Anonymous said...

"Frank Dillane did it right."

Never heard of him, who is he? Did he win an Oscar for something recently?

Anonymous said...

Frank Dillane played a teen voldemort in HP. He got a BA in Drama / Acting at RADA. Now he is also playing in the Fear of the Walking Dead and had some other good films. He seems to have steady work. He is a good young actor and a real creepy voldemort.

Emma re-twitted Shonda Rhymes who makes the best TV shows... could this be a hint????

Anonymous said...

Just watched beauty and the beast. It was very good. I think Emma did well. but liked animated, original better.

Anonymous said...

Shonda Rhimes makes series- and good ones. Somehow I am unable to imagine Emma in any of them. But maybe...

I don't think the film offers she wants are knocking on her door. The fading process might be beginning.

Maybe I will make one when Emma will quit acting. So in about a few weeks :p

See rupert Grint Ice-cream man fansite. it is quite good, but I would also love for Eden to do something with Rupert Grint.He is slow in the coming out, but I believe he is the real jewell of the trio. Every step he takes is thought though. His roles have been so diverse, showing his range wihich is wide. Now a big director needs to take notice of him. That man has talent.

I am quite surprised by no big director approaching Rupert Grint he is awesome in trio.

Yes Beserker by Mel Gibson is for Rupert Grint. His wild red hair gives him Viking potential. The Vikings were light blond and ginger.

Vikings were the Danes. The reds settled in scottland. Luv to see Rupert in Mel Gibson's film. Already wrote an e-mail to him at his production company: icon productions.
