Details of Emotional Scenes for “Deathly Hallows” Revealed
By Hanako M. Ricks
HollywoodNews.com: With recent clips, photos and interviews – even an early test screening last month – covering the highly anticipated released of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, there really hasn’t been much said about major scenes in the movies. Until now. (Warning for non-book fans: there are spoilers in this post).
Emma Watson revealed that we will get to see an emotional scene that is only mentioned in the book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, one that is guaranteed to bring tears to even the most “macho” of moviegoers: the scene where Hermione has to erase her parents’ memories, in order to keep them safe from Voldemort’s followers. She reveals to EW:
“You don’t read that in the book; you just know she does it…. You see Ron’s home and Harry’s. But you never really get a sense of Hermione’s life outside Hogwarts, outside that friendship, and it’s important,” Watson says. “She’s not just going off to school for another year. You’re choosing between family and friends; it’s pretty brutal. They offer her a cup of tea, completely unaware that anything’s about to happen, and then I cast a spell that wipes their memory of me. There’s photos all around the room, actual childhood pictures of me, and they just dissolve. It’s horrible. And then I have to shut the door and walk out alone.”
If the film is anywhere near as heartbreaking as the book was, then it’s safe to assume that I may not be the only fan in the movie theater holding on to a box of tissues for dear life.
