1. Emma as a person – overall impression
She seems likes a lovely person in interviews, but in pictures she seems grumpy.
2. Emma’s acting in Harry Potter – is she a good Hermione or not? And why? How important is canon in this respect? What did you think of her performance in Half-Blood Prince as opposed to other films?
I don’t like her as Hermione. She comes across snooty and condescending and bitchy, instead of a caring yet sometimes bossy know-it-all like in the books. She looks like she is angry 90% of the time and that drives me nuts. Hermione is NOT an angry person! Her performance in Half-Blood Prince was better than the previous three movies, but it still wasn’t Hermione.
3. Emma’s acting outside Harry Potter (Ballet Shoes, The Tale of Despereaux)
Never seen any of these.
4. The fact that Emma didn’t do many roles outside of Harry Potter – a good thing or not?
It’s a good thing, because honestly she needs to work on her acting skills before she tries to do something else.
5. Emma’s looks – overrated or not
Overrated. She is cute, yes, but she gets WAY too much attention.
6. Emma as a style icon – is it a good thing for the Harry Potter franchise overall, or not?
It gets news, so I guess it’s good.
7. Emma’s ambition and plans in life: acting, or modelling, or university, or all these
She should pick one and stick to it. It takes loads of talent to do more than one, and sadly she doesn’t have that much. Just go hack to university.
8. The way Emma treats Rupert in interviews and public appearances
They are very cute in interviews and they have good off-screen chemistry to go along with the on-screen chemistry.
9. Emma as a Ron/Hermione shipper
She definitely is, and I wish she would try to influence that part of the movies since the movie makers seem to adore her so much!
10. Your expectations: Emma in Deathly Hallows I and II, and beyond Harry Potter
I will keep my fingers crossed that she will nail Deathly Hallows and not ruin the great Ron/Hermione scenes with her angry-all-the-time scowl. I think after Harry Potter she probably won’t act much at all, but may model.
