Emma Watson’s Prankster Side Unveiled
While fans worldwide cherish Emma Watson for her portrayal of the level-headed and wise Hermione Granger in the globally celebrated Harry Potter film series, Daniel Radcliffe, her on-screen best friend, remembers her for a particularly cheeky April Fool’s prank.
A Not-So-Innocent Morning Surprise
Radcliffe recently opened up about a mischievous incident from their time on the Harry Potter set. Recalling the event, Radcliffe detailed how, at the tender age of 14, he became a target of Watson’s playful antics. The unsuspecting actor shared, “It was, like, really early in the morning so I hadn’t even got that it was April 1 yet. I was a fan of this band called the Libertines, who were very fractious and they might have broken up at any point, and she came in and went, ‘It’s happened, it’s finally happened!'”
The Libertines, known for their internal rifts, were among Radcliffe’s favorite bands. Watson’s ‘news’ caught Radcliffe off guard, causing his cheeks to flush and his lips to tremble, as he grappled with the idea of his treasured band disbanding.
Watson’s Timely Revelation
It wasn’t long before Watson saw Radcliffe’s emotional turmoil, perhaps nearing tears over the assumed end of the Libertines. Embodying both the prankster and the compassionate friend, Watson confessed her ruse before things went too far. This gentle side to her prank underscores the bond shared among the young actors.
