Emma Watson and Rupert Grint basically grew up together on the sets of the various Harry Potter movies. So when it came time for them to have their first kiss on camera in the series’ final installment, they were justifiably weirded out. I mean, how would you feel if you suddenly had to make out with someone you’ve been good friends with since childhood? You’d feel weird, I bet.
This video clip–taken from the upcoming Blu Ray release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2–gives a little behind-the-scenes look at what went into filming that first kiss. In it, director David Yates explains how Emma and Rupert are “like brother and sister,” so she wanted to get it right the first time and be done with it. Look at her go for it! Unfortunately, she ended up laughing and they had to do more takes anyway. I wonder how many they ultimately did? It has got to be at least a little bit fun kissing Rupert Grint…I mean, look at that goofy ginger face. It’s hilarious.
