Emma Watson Had Deathly Hallows Split Worries

Subscribe to Emma Watson alerts

Emma Watson was concerned when she heard the final 'Harry Potter' book would be made into two films.

The actress - who has played Hermione Granger in all of the former movies alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint - felt "overwhelmed" when she heard 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' would be made into two films because she thought it was a "money spinning" scheme.

She said: "At first, I'll be honest, at first I was like, 'Oh my goodness' cause we were doing film six at the time, I was like, 'oh my God three more movies?' I was just overwhelmed, I was like wow that is a lot. I was like, 'Is this a money spinner?' You know I was very cynical and dubious about it. I'll be honest I was not immediately impressed."

However, her opinion changed after a discussion with the crew led her to realise there was too much story in the final book by J. K. Rowling for just one movie.

She added to Collider.com: "Then I thought about it and I talked about it with David Yates, The Producers, and they said, 'Look, there's no way we can fit everything into one movie. It'll be too much. It won't be a good movie, it won't be true to the book. We're not even sure we could call it 'Deathly Hallows'.

"And I was like, 'Oh, OK.' As soon as I saw the logic behind it I realized that it was absolutely the way we had to do it. So yeah, it made total sense and I was totally behind it. Certainly at first I had my reservations."
