    Growing up on screen can be a tumultuous journey. From her debut in 'Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone' at age 11, Emma Watson became synonymous with Hermione Granger. Yet, as reported by the Hindustan Times, even she felt the burden of global stardom. Watson's candid revelations during the "Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts" took many by surprise. "I think I was scared. It was around the time of Order of the Phoenix when things started getting spicy for all of us," she openly shared. Reflecting on the heightened fame, Watson acknowledged, "The fame thing had finally hit home – in a big way."

    While the Potter trio is etched in fans' hearts, their off-screen dynamics revealed distinct experiences. Tom Felton, our unforgettable Draco Malfoy, pointed out Watson's solitary journey, saying, “People definitely forget what she took on and how gracefully she did it. Dan (Daniel Radcliffe) and Rupert (Grint) had each other, I had my cronies, whereas Emma was not only younger, she was by herself.” Rupert Grint also shed light on the collective introspection during the filming. Echoing Watson's sentiments, he said, “I also had sort of similar feelings to Emma, contemplating what life would be like if I called it a day.”
