Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger were two of the most loved characters in the “Harry Potter” series and their love story has always been magical.
Throughout the duration of the eight “Harry Potter” films, the actors who played the characters had grown up and their kissing scene had become awkward.
At the recent Universal Studios’ three-day Celebration of a Harry Potter event in Orlando, Rupert Grint, who played Ron, revealed that the kissing scene with Emma Watson, who portrayed Hermione, in “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollow Part 2” was “surreal.”
“I never look back at that scene. I’ve known Emma since she was literally 9 years old and we had this very brother-sister relationship, and it just felt very surreal. I have a memory of her face getting closer and closer. Like, ‘Oh my God.’ I can’t really remember anything apart from that,” Grint told People magazine.
When asked if he would want to change anything in that scene, the British actor said: “One take was enough. It was such a huge moment and there was so much expectation. Quite a lot of pressure actually.”
Meanwhile, the Weasleys had some sort of reunion over the weekend.
Aside from Grint, Bonnie Wright, who played Ron’s little sister Ginny Weasley in the movies, was also present at the Universal Studios Orlando’s event.
Wright shared a photo on Instagram of their Weasley family reunion. She captioned the photo, “Family time,” and used the hashtag #stillnoredheademoji.
Joining the on-screen siblings in Orlando were Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom), Katie Leung (Cho Chang) and Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood).
Meanwhile, Universal Studios Hollywood announced that its “Wizarding World of Harry Potter” will open on April 7, 2016.
Like in Orlando, the West Coast “Wizarding World” will allow Muggles to explore the shops of Hogsmeade and the corridors of Hogwarts.
The park will also feature Universal’s first-ever outdoor rollercoaster, “Flight of the Hippogriff” and the 3D HD thrill ride, called “Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey.” The ride will allow passengers to soar over the Hogwarts grounds and come face-to-face with dragons and the Whomping Willow, Entertainment Weekly noted.
