Rupert Grint on ‘Harry Potter’ kissing scene: ‘One take was enough’

Grint's Ron Weasley kissed Emma Watson's Hermione Granger in the final 'Harry Potter' film

Harry Potter‘s Rupert Grint has revealed that he found his infamous “kissing scene” with Emma Watson a “surreal” experience.

Grint’s character Ron Weasley and Watson’s Hermione Granger finally locked lips in the franchise’s final instalment, 2011’s Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 2. At this point, the two actors had known one another for around a decade and forged a close platonic relationship.

“I never look back at that scene,” Grint told PEOPLE. “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,” he added.

Asked if he would do anything differently in the scene, Grint replied: “One take was enough. It was such a huge moment and there was so much expectation. Quite a lot of pressure actually.” Watch Grint and Watson’s “kissing scene” below.

Meanwhile, a Scottish MP was forced to apologise last week after accusing Harry Potter author JK Rowling of supporting and defending “abusive, misogynist trolls”. McGarry also accused Rowling of “bullying her” before retracting her statements.
