Emma Watson On The Famous Harry Potter Scene That Made Her ' Uncomfortable'

It's been a decade since the Harry Potter film series ended, but fans are still deeply invested in the franchise. J.K. Rowling's story of the boy wizard continues to captivate old and new viewers alike; however, it seems that it's the after-the-fact testimonials by the Harry Potter cast that are dominating the online discussion boards lately. Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Evanna Lynch have all famously spoken up about their experiences on set before, so it was only a matter of time until their co-star, Emma Watson, gave her own two cents.

Watson recently revealed that there was one scene she filmed that made her deeply "uncomfortable," and it even went on to divide audiences upon the film's release. In Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part One, the seventh installment in the film series, there is a famous tent scene involving Radcliffe's Harry and Watson's Hermione where the two characters are left alone after a falling out with Ron.

The pair is depicted at their lowest point until a radio starts playing music in the background. Harry then offers his hand to Hermione, asking her for a dance in an effort to cheer her up. What proceeds is a brief, tender moment between the two friends, until they both snap out of it and a sudden tension overcomes them.

The scene is controversial among fans because it seems to suggest that Harry and Hermione might be more than just friends. Adding to the fan criticism is the fact that it never appeared in the books — at no point did J.K. Rowling ever suggest that Harry and Hermione had a romantic or non-platonic connection. Emma Watson herself felt awkward about the scene; so much so that she even brought up her concerns to the film's producer, David Heyman.

According to Hypable, she told Heyman that she knew the scene wasn't in the book, that J.K. Rowling didn't write it, and that she didn't feel comfortable insinuating something despite how subtle it was. She even added that it was a haunting scene for her to film, especially since Watson is known for preferring to do things to the letter. Interestingly enough, in the same interview, J.K. Rowling herself said she actually liked the scene because it was articulating something that she hadn't said but felt. She said that the scene shows what could have been between Harry and Hermione, adding an unexplored (but highly possible) layer to their relationship.

The Harry Potter film series is now streaming on HBO Max.
