Is there a potion to stop people from freaking out? Emma Watson revealed in a new interview that some of the Harry Potter stars are in a group chat together, and fans can’t handle it. Watch the video above!
The British actress, who played book-smart Hermione Granger in the beloved franchise, spoke about the Hogwarts crew while promoting her upcoming movie Beauty and the Beast, a live-action version of the 1991 animated Disney classic.
“We actually have a group [on] WhatsApp. I invited everyone really from the main cast to come to the screenings. Matt Lewis and Tom Felton came to the screening that we just had in L.A.,” Watson, 26, told Entertainment Tonight on Monday, March 6. “It’s kind of like Pokemon. I’m trying to catch them all right now. I’ve got Bonnie [Wright] and Dan [Radcliffe] left. We are all spread all over the globe and so it’s the case of trying to get people into the right places. I feel very supported by my old costars.”
Watson starred in the films, which were adapted from J.K. Rowling‘s best-selling books, alongside Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley). After Harry defeated Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes), Hermione went on to marry Ron and have adorable red-headed kids.
“I wonder what’s going on in the harry potter cast group chat right now,” one fan tweeted late Monday. A second Potterhead added: “emma watson saying the harry potter cast has a group chat CAN YOU HEAR ME CRYING.”
Watson was just 9 when she auditioned for the role that would launch her career. On Monday night, she joked to Jimmy Kimmel that she would often mouth Radcliffe and Grint’s lines while the cameras were rolling.
“You laugh, but this is actually quite traumatic for me. I created issues because of this. I would ruin takes!” she said on Jimmy Kimmel Live! “I was such a loser, I really loved those books, I really wanted to do my job well, and I kind of overdid it.”
