“It feels like no time has passed. And loads of time has passed,” reflects Watson, who was 11 when she filmed the first movie.
It is then that Radcliffe reveals to fans, “The thing that scared me the most was the implication that the most meaningful thing in our life was done and there’s something so joyous about seeing everyone, and be like, it wasn’t though.”
