HP Character: Hagrid, because he has so many emotions for a big guy, and he's also very funny


Hardest scene: "Neville comes up to me with his toad, Trevor, and says,� Do you want to kiss Trevor goodnight?" Every time he did this I burst into laughter. I was supposed to give him an "I hate you" look, but I couldn't help myself. It took me about eight takes to get it."

"Now that I've played the snotty, bossy, posh Hermione Granger, I'd like to play some American high school girl. I want to play something totally different. I want to play every kind of character and every point of view, but I'm probably going to be playing Hermione for a while."

"It was unbelievable seeing me as an action figure! In a few months, toddlers all around the country will be biting my head off!"

"I'm very, very sporty - I ski, I fish, I do field hockey and tons of stuff."

"I think I could be 100 years old and in my rocker, but I'll still be very proud to say I was in the 'Harry Potter' films."

"It's the scariest thing that's ever happened to me, it's the biggest thing that's ever happened to me, and it's the best thing that's ever happened to me! I really enjoyed making the film and I'd love to think that people would look up to me. That's very flattering."

"I might as well have been in the army. It was really hard work. I think that day I swallowed 50% dust and 50% food, it was that tough."

"Some of Hermione's lines left me wondering what on earth she was going on about !!"

"This REALLY bugs me!" says Watson of her character's unusual name. "I go around saying, 'Everyone repeat it with me: Her-MY-oh-nee', because everyone says Her-my-WON, Her-my-OWN."

"Most people are really nice but some stare, like you're some kind of zoo exhibit and not a real person with real feelings."

" I would like Voldemort to be properly killed-- dead-- so that Harry won't have anymore problems. For Ron's dad to get really, really, super-duper rich. For the Malfoys to go broke. And I'd like Hermione to get a really, really good job."

Chris Columbus on Emma filming the hug scene in the Chamber of Secrets. "I asked Emma to hug Dan, and she said, 'No way,' and that was the day she was the most nervous being on the set. She was like, 'I am not going to hug him, no I'm not.' And I said, 'You've been petrified, this is one of your best friends, if not your best friend, you have to hug him,' I said, 'but you won't hug Ron, because that's where the tension is.'"

Emma is a keen hockey and rounders player. She enjoys school activities such as debating, sculling, tug of war and singing on the school bus! She is also an art scholar and boasts the most colourful and creative dressing room at the studio!
