Harry Potter: when Emma Watson made the torture scene "scary"
News author: Deborah Ross / 2020-05-10 20:20:08In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, Emma Watson gave a great test of acting during the torture scene, so much so that it made it all too real at times, as David Yates recalls.
10 years have passed since Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 1, but the penultimate chapter of the saga remains an unforgettable film for many reasons. As for the torture scene with Emma Watson and Helena Bonham Carter, which according to David Yates at times seemed all too real.
And he continues, explaining the approach they decided to opt for: «We didn't shoot it as a classic scene where you shout 'Action!' and 'Stop!'. I let the shooting continue for four or five minutes, and I let Helena and Emma improvise a few moments, so I could create a gradual intensity. «
But as with everything, too much is likely to choke ... «The first time we shot it, however, I shouted 'Stop!'. Emma said 'You stopped too early! It was too early!', But he was getting really too intense at that point. I replied 'Sorry Ems, but it was getting really scary'. To which she said 'No, no, no, let me try again, let me try again!' «.
But in the end they found the «right» measure. «There have been some really intense moments, where Emma let herself go a bit and for a few moments she even forgot that she was acting. And the screams ... They were really horrible to listen to. There was a really strange energy in that room. Emma Watson was like exploring and exorcising demons, evil energies, in shooting the scene. And that day, at that moment, I felt as if she was crossing this invisible line as an actress. - she discovered something in herself that will make her a great actress. «
