In November, it was announced that HBO Max would release a “Harry Potter” special, 20 years after the first film had been made.
The special has been called “Harry Potter’s 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts” and will be broadcast on New Year’s Day. There will reportedly be more discoveries that fans haven’t been told before.
One discovery is the infatuation of protagonist Daniel Radcliffe with one of the older stars in the film series.
Send a declaration of love
According to the Huffington Post He tells the 32-year-old that he had a weakness for 23-year-old Helena Bonham Carter, who played Death Eater Bellatrix Lestrange in the films.
In the special broadcast, Radcliffe shares a message he sent to his colleague, after they completed the last movie in the series in 2011.
– Dear HBC. I had the pleasure of being your colleague and assistant in the form that I always ended up holding your coffee, Radcliffe reading out loud for the first time in front of the rest of the cast, before continuing:
– I love you, and I wish I had been born ten years earlier, so that I had the opportunity.
Remember the moment
Admittedly, Radcliffe isn’t the only one sharing declarations of love during the reunion. Emma Watson, who plays Hermine Grange, is opening up about her affair with Tom Felton (who plays Draco Malfang), something she’s also talked about before.
She says she remembers the moment she started feeling butterflies in her stomach.
– I went into the room in which we were studying, and was given the task of drawing God the way we thought He looked. The 31-year-old says Tom drew a girl on a skateboard with her hat on the wrong track.
From that moment, Emma says that she fell in love with the three-year-old actress.
Know about liking
– I was always looking for his number on the cast. His number was seven, and if he was on today’s show it would be an extra exciting day.
She also says that Felton considered her almost like her little sister, which upset her.
Felton says he has known about Watson’s liking for a long time.
“Someone in the make-up room once told me, I think,” says Felton on the special.
Watson and Felton never got along, but they maintained the close friendship they developed during filming.
