DIRECTOR DAVID YEATS ON TORTURING HERMIONE (x)
“I didn’t shoot it like a scene where you [say] action [and] cut. I kind of let the camera roll for four or five minutes and I let Helena and Emma improvise… build an intensity together. It was getting scary. Emma was able to just let go a little bit and forget for a moment that she was acting. And the screams were quite horrible to listen to. It was a very odd energy in the room. In that moment and in that day and in that room, she kind of crossed the line as an actress. She discovered something within herself that will make her a great actor.”
One died for power,
The other sought dead love,
And the last greeted death as an old friend.
The Ministry has fallen. The Minister of Magic is dead. They are coming.
I have often said that Hermione is a bit like me when I was younger. I think I was seen by other people as a right little know-it-all, but I hope that it is clear that underneath Hermione’s swottiness there is a lot of insecurity and a great fear of failure.J.K. Rowling
