They grew up with each other, and went through every ruined outtake and showbiz challenges together, that too for more than a decade. They also produced the trailblazing blockbuster franchise of the century together, and it is no wonder if people wonder how they keep up with each other now. We are of course talking about the cast of Harry Potter - Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Tom Felton, you get the drift. So how do they stay in touch? Via a WhatsApp group chat. For real. Just like you.
"We actually have a group WhatsApp," says Emma Watson aka Hermione from team Potter. "It’s kind of like Pokémon. I’m trying to catch them all right now," says Emma about her Potter-verse friends, whom she has been trying to invite for the premiere of her movie, Beauty and the Beast.
Over the years the Harry Potter cast has had several reunions, on and off-screen. They end up bumping into Brit hotspots like Soho or the Diagon Alley. And now we know how they co-ordinate.
"It’s a case of trying to, like, get people into the right places, but yeah, everyone has been very supportive and I’m very supported by my old co-stars," says Emma, who recently met up with Matthew Lewis or as you know him, Neville Longbottom, in LA.
Emma, the relentless campaigner for practical feminism was at the centre of a rather groundless controversy lately, after she posed for a photoshoot in some risque bolero jackets. "I really don’t know what my t*ts have to do with it. It’s very confusing. Feminism is about giving women choice. Feminism is not a stick about which to beat other women with," Emma told Reuters earlier this week.
Emma also made an appearance at Jimmy Kimmel Live, and watched a hilarious outtake from the Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone she mouths Daniel's (Harry) line. "I would ruin takes! The directors would be like, ‘Cut! Emma, you’re doing it again. You’re mouthing Dan’s lines.’ And I’d be like, ‘Ooh! I’m so sorry! So sorry! Oh, I feel so bad!’" Emma admitted to Jimmy on his show.
