She was joined by Rupert Grint and Daniel Radcliffe as they posed together before the Big Apple screening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 in front of large crowds, some of whom had waited six days to secure a prime place to see their idols.
Emma, who is famous for playing Hermione Granger, looked resplendent in a gold strapless Bottega Veneta gown and a world away from the 11-year-old that graced the red carpet at the first premiere ten years ago.
When shown a picture of herself back then, Emma cringed but acknowledged how lucky she has been and was sentimental about the great opportunity she had been given. “A part of me is very sad and emotional. It’s been a tricky juggling act to do my job and be professional but it’s very emotional,” she said. But when asked what she intended to do when all of her official Harry Potter duties were complete, Emma said she planned to relax and reflect. “I think I’ll go have a really big brunch, and sleep, and try to take it all in,” the actress mused.
