In the third installment, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Watson returns as Hermione Granger, helping Harry, Ron, and Professor Remus Lupin (David Thewlis) find Sirius Black, an escaped serial killer, while uncovering the mysteries surrounding the night Harry became an orphan.
Oh, I loved it! It’s my favorite book, my favorite script, and it’s such a fantastic part for Hermoine. She really comes into her own, and I think you see a really different side to her than you have in the other two [films]. I think it’s much more personal, and this film has really tested and challenged me, and I’ve definitely enjoyed it the best out of the three because of that … I hope that I did her justice and that she’s what (fans) thought she’d be.
Watson stars as Hermione Granger in the film Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the second installment of the Harry Potter series. In the movie Harry, along with Hermione and Ron, must figure out what is causing the mysterious attacks at Hogwarts.
I think in the second book Hermione kind of develops. She becomes more friendly with Harry and Ron and she definitely becomes more easy going.
Watson makes her screen debut in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. She stars as Hermione Granger, Harry’s brainy, bossy friend born to non-magic, “Muggle” parents.
Hermione sounds like me and behaves like me. She’s self-assured, irritating, emotional and loyal. Playing her doesn’t involve an awful lot of acting.
Watson is cast for the role of Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Watson recalls the audition as a happy accident when casting agents visited different British schools asking if they had any children who would like to audition. Her Oxford theater teacher recommended her to the agents and the producers were impressed with Watson’s confidence. After eight auditions, producer David Heyman told Watson and Grint that they had been cast as the lead roles of Hermione and Ron, respectively.
I was asked up to David Heymen’s office with Rupert. [He] sat me down and said, ‘You’ve got the part.’ Ahhh! It was so cool. Best experience of my life. Scariest experience of my life. Too much to take in. I was in awe.
