Without a doubt, Emma Watson fills the necessary role in my life of the unattainable best friend who I must constantly worship from afar. Does that sound scary? It felt a little “much” when I typed it. But no time to think about that now when I have so much juicy Hermione Granger gossip to fill you in on.
First of all, she’s pregnant. With Draco Malfoy’s baby. Second of all, that’s just a little teaser from the 8th Harry Potter book that I’m writing in my spare time. Stay to tuned to find out what happens when Snape tries online dating. It has a magic all of its own…
Don’t like Harry Potter fan fiction? Well, you best get used to it because you won’t hear Emma Watson dropping Hermione’s name much longer. She recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly about her upcoming film, The Perks of Being a Wallflower and said the following statement about the beloved character.
The cast — which includes Logan Lerman and Ezra Miller — all bonded while living in the same hotel in Pittsburgh, which Watson now calls one of her favorite places. It was there that Watson can point to one particular scene — when Sam stands up in the back of a pickup truck driving through a tunnel — as the moment she was able to truly graduate from Hogwarts. “I started as Emma with some Hermione still left in my system,” she says. “I went through the tunnel and I came out ready to start something new.”
So yeah, after 8 movies playing the same character, she left her in a tunnel in Pittsburgh. Just left her there. And look, I’ve visited Pittsburgh. It’s not the right place to leave a young wizard who’s trying to start her career.
While I love Emma Watson, I’m pretty sad to read about her ditching Hermione. But I suppose that’s mostly because I have trouble separating fact from fiction and I truly believe Emma Watson to be a wizard. So there’s that.
