Prior to their appearance at the New York City premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, Emma Watson (Hermione) and Rupert Grint (Ron) made separate appearances on NBC-TV’s The Today Show.
Emma was in an early segment, signing autographs outside before the show’s hosts spoke to her in the square. She mainly spoke about how she felt privileged to have played a character like “Hermione” and will miss being in her world. The hosts wished her a belated happy birthday (it was in April) which brought up the subject of how Emma requested a portrait of herself as a birthday present to herself; and in turn, he had requested doing a few paintings of her (which are shown in the clip).
As for Rupert, he appeared in the segment with Kathie Lee and Hoda. They discussed his audition for the first film, Deathly Hallows Part 2 premiere in London, his friendship with Emma and Daniel Radcliffe (Harry), mentioning how impressed he was with Dan’s show How To Success In Business Without Really Trying currently playing on Broadway, and of course, his kissing scene with Emma in the final film.
