WASHINGTON - Emma Watson has revealed that she is glad to have “Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling in her life.
The 19-year-old actress, who stars as Hermione Granger in the movie adaptation of the series, dubbed the wizard writer a “genuine, caring” person.
“In the earlier years she was still writing the books and also had a young child, so she was really busy. But now she can be more involved and it’s more of a pleasure,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
“She has been around more, and we are quite similar in a way, so she has been nice to talk to. She’s been very caring and is genuinely a really lovely woman. It’s just wonderful to have her in my life,” she added.
The star, who was cast as Hermione at the age of nine, further said she would be left with a “big hole” in her life when the curtain is drawn on ‘Harry Potter’ movies.
She said: “Yes, there will be a big hole. But I think you underestimate the longevity of the series. I think they are making a theme park and new generations of children will keep reading the books and hopefully watching the films - everyone has tried to make sure they’ll be classics.” (ANI)
