How do you balance doing something like this with schoolwork and socialising?
Emma: I try and keep my social life up as much as I can. My mum and dad make really big efforts to get me to see my friends. I even brought some of them to the set, which was really good fun.
What did you find the most enjoyable part of the shoot and what was the most nerve-wracking?
Emma: I think the most enjoyable was probably meeting all the new people, which is actually pretty tiring. But it was really nice to meet all the amazing co-stars we acted with, the crew were fantastic and made us all feel really comfortable. Probably the most nerve-wracking is sitting here in front of you today. Very honestly.
What was your favourite magic spell in the film and how would you use it in real life?
Emma: I particularly liked - and it was one of my favourite scenes - where Neville drops to the ground in the body-binder. I think that's a great scene and I love that spell. Put it this way, no one would get in my way after that.
AOL INTERVIEW - After the first HP movie
-Hi! How did you feel when you got a part in the movie?
Emma: Amazing, I felt absolutely fantastic!
Rupert: It was so cool! It was amazing! It was the coolest moment in my life.
- Where were you when you found out?
Emma: We were together. We thought, "Oh, my gosh, another audition!" We were both together, and then we were told that we were chosen to be Ron and Hermione.
- Were there any cast members of Harry Potter that weren't British?
Emma: Chris Columbus, the director, was the only American in the cast.
- When will production of film two begin, and will you both continue to do sequels beyond the second film?
Rupert: Well, me and Dan have started doing the flying-car thing.
Emma: I am starting in December. I haven't started yet. We are taking it one film at a time. I don't know if they are even going to be making a third film.
- Was it difficult to fight a troll in your imagination?
Rupert: All of the visual effect scenes were difficult.
Emma: Because you had to pretend when there was nothing there.
- How long did it take to film the movie?
Rupert: About 10 months.
Emma: Eight or seven months.Ha ha!
- Did you read the books?
Rupert: I have been a Harry Potter fan before there was a film.
Emma: I was in the middle of the third book when I started the audition. By the time I got the part, I finished the book!
- Emma, how did you like working with someone like Daniel Radcliffe? Do you have a crush on him or Rupert?
Emma: Umm, Rupert happens to be sitting right next to me. Number one, if I did, I wouldn't tell you! And, number two, I don't, actually!
- What was the best part of the filming?
Rupert: It was all the visual special effects.
Emma: For me, it was the people, the locations and just the fun of acting.
- Rupert, do you have a girlfriend?
Rupert Grint: Ummm, no!
- Who is your favorite Harry Potter character in the books?
Emma: Hagrid. I think he is really funny!
Rupert: For me, it is probably Ron. He is very much like me. I have the hair, I am afraid of spiders and I like sweets!
- This question is for you, Rupert. What was the best thing about playing Ron in the movie?
Rupert: Eating sweets all the time! You get to meet a lot of people, and that is nice.
- If you had an invisibility cloak of your own for a day, where would you go and what would you do?
Emma: I would make myself invisible so that I could sneak into films for people over 15 years of age.
Rupert:I would sneak out of detentions if I were invisible!
- Which character did you think was the scariest?
Emma: There is an obvious answer, Voldemort!
Rupert: For me, Hermione. Just kidding! Voldemort.
- Do either of you play sports?
Emma : I love sports. I play rounders, hockey and tennis for my school.
Rupert: I like football -- soccer, for you Americans.
-If you played Quidditch, which position would you play?
Rupert : I would be a beater.
Emma: I think I would be a chaser. I think a chaser would be fun, because you get to move around a lot and you have the most fun.
Rupert: I picked the beater because you'd get to hit the bludgers!
- What's your favorite line from the movie?
Emma Watson: Mine would be, "I'm going to bed before either of you comes up with another clever idea which will get us."
Rupert Grint: "Bloody Brilliant!"
- How did you feel the first time that you saw the movie?
Emma: The first time I saw the movie, I was scared. It was really freaking seeing myself 10 feet tall on the screen.
Rupert: I would say that was about the same for me.
- How has being so recognized by people changed your life?
Rupert: It has just made it cooler!
Emma: I think that, at first, it would be cool to give autographs and pictures, but it is hard work.
- I'd like to know... If you could keep one prop from the set, which would you pick?
Emma: I think I would like to have one of the chess pieces.
Rupert: I would like to keep the sweets!
- I know that you guys have both met author J.K. Rowling. What is she like?
Rupert: She is really down-to-earth and nice!
Emma: I agree, she is really very nice and humorous.
- What is your favorite memory growing up?
Emma: I really don't know
- Is there anything taken out of the movie that was in the book?
Emma: I don't think so. They tried to be as faithful to the book as possible. Obviously, they had to keep some things out, or the movie would be a day long. But I think they were very faithful to the book.
- Emma, are you anything like Hermione?
Emma Watson: No, mainly because I enjoy school, but I am not great at school.
- Were the every-flavor beans you used in the movie really every flavor?
Emma: Yes!
Rupert: Yes, there was grass, vinegar. There were also nice ones as well -- ice cream, etc. So, yeah, they were every flavor!
- Which of those flavors was the worst?
Rupert: Well, I had this really horrible one -- I still don't know what it was.
Emma: I did try some, I think the worst was vomit flavor! I didn't realize it at the time. Horseradish was pretty bad too.
-: What was your favorite scene that you acted out and why?
Rupert: I love the chess scene. But I like Hogwarts as well, because it was very dramatic.
Emma: For me, it would probably be the troll scene, mainly because I had stunts to do.
- What is your holiday wish?
Rupert: I wish everybody would go to the film!
Emma: I wish there was peace between America and Afghanistan.
- Do you want to continue acting throughout your life?
Rupert: I do. I really enjoy it. I've had so much fun. It is really cool.
Emma: If it comes around, it comes around. If it doesn't, that is OK. I am very open to ideas!
- What would you like to tell American audiences about the movie?
Emma: Go see it -- it is absolutely amazing!
Rupert: I would just like for everyone to go see the film.
- Emma and Rupert, thanks so much for stopping in to chat. Come see us again!
Emma & Rupert : Thanks!
