About Dumbledore (2007): "From the beginning I felt he [Snape] was going to do something big, and I really think he is evil, and the reason why he came back is because Dumbledore trusts people, he trusts them too much, and sometimes it's not that good. We see Dumbledore as if he was perfect, he seems like the character from "To Kill a Mockingbird", in that he relies blindly on people... and yes, forgive me for involving my English classes, but yes, he trusts too much, that's what I think that was the message."

‘THE BLOOM OF THE WALLFLOWER’ BY DEREK BLASBERG

DEREK BLASBERG: My mother is the first person to say I always wanted a little brother or sister. I was the youngest in my entire family, and I always felt like it was a disservice to humanity that there wasn’t someone after me onto whom I could dispel my pearls of wisdom. So, when Emma Watson — then a smiley, sweet, super smart teenager — and I became buddies, I felt like my childhood prayers had been answered. There was only one striking difference: Emma, wise beyond her years, already knew more than I did about just about everything and didn’t need any such advice. Emma is one of those rare breeds of people who have an intuition, a good head on their shoulders, a quick judgment. I can’t be certain that, as her adopted big bro, she’s learned any of that from me, but I will say she’s taught me a thing or two. She is concise, put together, organised, forthright and reliable. (Which are not the sorts of adjectives that apply to most child actors.) Back when I’d visit her on the Harry Potter sets, her dressing areas would be tidy(ish) and her well worn and bookmarked books would be stacked everywhere. She navigated the pressures of filming the world’s most successful cinema franchise with elegance and grace, and she didn’t forget to do the little things, like send funny postcards from vacations and fruit baskets at the holidays. After Potter, I watched her grow into a beautiful young woman who is navigating a career that’s entirely her own. It’s been an interesting transition: As she herself says, she felt she was an adult even when she was in the body a little girl waving a magic wand. Now, it’s as though she has caught up with herself. In the film Perks of Being a Wallflower, she charmingly captured the end of an American innocence. In the upcoming Noah, she tackles the role of a biblical daughter-in-law in an epic adventure. Behold: Emma, a thoroughly modern woman.

DEREK BLASBERG: Where are you right now and what are you doing?

EMMA WATSON: Right now I’m on holiday. I’m stood on the balcony of my hotel room and I’m scratching my feet because I’ve been eaten alive by mosquitos. I look like I have a disease. I’m told I have sweet blood.

D: Well, I’m freezing in New York, so you won’t get much mosquito sympathy from me.

E: Well, I miss New York. I loved living there.

Emma to Star in Thriller “Regression”

Emma Watson has reportedly signed on to star in Alejandro Amenábar’s upcoming thriller Regression along with Ethan Hawke.

“I am passionate about Alejandro and his work and am so happy to be collaborating with him. I’m really excited by the challenge my character presents to me as an actress. I can’t wait to begin,” said Watson.

“Emma is a beautiful, humane, sensitive and very talented woman, and I feel very fortunate to be working with her. I’m sure that her long-standing stellar career has barely begun,” said Amenábar.

Amenábar (“The Others”) will direct from his own original screenplay, “which is set in 1980 in a small Minnesota town where a man is arrested for sexually abusing his daughter. He admits his guilt despite having no memory of it. With the help of a psychologist, he relives the memories and implicates a police officer as his partner in crime. The man’s estranged son and other townspeople are also suddenly able to relive suppressed memories of horrific abuse. At the same time, the local news reports blame a Satanic cult that has been performing rituals of orgies, assault, killing animals and even babies, for years. The officers are alarmed when similar reports come in from all around the country—they believe they’ve uncovered a national and possibly supernatural conspiracy. Is the abuse real, or something else?”

Hawke will play the role of the father. No confirmation yet on Emma’s role. Regression is expected to be released in 2015.

Wonderland Magazine Teaser

Emma Watson interviewed Harry Potter author JK Rowling for her section in the upcoming issue of Wonderland magazine. The Sunday Times teased us with a few excerpts of the interview in which JK Rowling discusses the Hermione/Ron relationship. Wonderland confirmed that Emma did all the interviews for her section as guest-editor of this issue. You can pre-order your copy from here.

 

“In a rare interview Rowling admits that although they ended up together, they are not a credible couple. She said: “I wrote the Hermione/Ron relationship as a form of wish fulfillment. That’s how it was conceived, really. For reasons that have very little to do with literature and far more to do with me clinging to the plot as I first imagined it Hermione, ended up with Ron.”
 
She added: “I know, I’m sorry, I can hear the rage and fury it might cause some fans, but if I’m absolutely honest, distance has given me perspective on that. It was a choice I made for very personal reasons, not for reasons of credibility. Am I breaking people’s hearts by saying this? I hope not.”
 
Emma Watson, who played Hermione, … tends to agree with Rowling.  “I think there are fans out there who know that too and who wonder whether Ron would have really been able to make her happy.”
 
Hermione’s relationship with Harry was more like brother and sister in the books, but the actress agrees they would have made a better match.  As for Ron and Hermione, Rowling believes they would have ended up needing relationship counseling.”
