THE SCENE FROM “THE GOBLET OF FIRE” THAT EMBARRASSED EMMA WATSON?
Emma Watson lived an embarrassing moment during the recordings of “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”. We refer to the scene in which Hermione goes down the Hogwarts stairs and captures the attention of everyone who is about to enter the ball, because she looks really beautiful in a pink dress. They are minimal seconds, but for the actress they were infinite.
Watson recalled that it was a complicated scene, although on screen it seemed simple. And it is that several attempts were made to make the walk as similar as possible to what the director asked for, according to Sensacine.
“Mike Newell advised me how to go down the stairs in a dress: ‘Your arms are moving a lot, you walk very fast, you need to slow down’…”, revealed the actress.
The embarrassing moment came when Emma Watson fell down the stairs during the recording of that scene from “The Goblet of Fire”. “She’s giving me a million directions [Newell] and of course I ended up falling down the stairs,” he recalled.
Watson stated that she did not entirely agree with that scene: “I think for the first time Harry and Ron, particularly Ron, see Hermione as a young woman and not as this kind of companion,” the actress explained.
“I knew it was a great moment, but I was miserable… I only understood that it was an ugly duckling turned into a beautiful swan moment. It was a lot of pressure,” she added.
Hermione’s pink dress is one of Potterheads’ favorite outfits and meant several hours of torture for the 31-year-old actress. Not just for her, as several Harry Potter actors have revealed that working on the franchise was anything but easy.
Despite some bad moments, Emma Watson was happy to return to the Gryffindor common room with her two former teammates Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, the three are acclaimed by the public worldwide.
