Emma Watson Gets Emotional at UK Premiere of Last Harry Potter
As a major chapter in her life comes to a close, Emma Watson couldn't hold back the tears at last night's (July 7) "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2" UK premiere.
The stunning short-haired actress wiped away tears after an emotional moment onstage as she spoke into the microphone to the thousands of screaming fans lining Trafalgar Square.
With fellow castmates Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint also on-hand, Ms Watson wowed the crowd in a floor-length Oscar de la Renta ball gown paired with simple-yet-chic earrings.
The three superstars were joined by author J.K. Rowling and the rest of the cast including Tom Felton with Jade Gordon, Bonnie Wright with Jamie Campbell Bower, Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Alan Rickman and Maggie Smith, with the group certainly causing a fan frenzy as they arrived on the red carpet one by one.
Hundreds of the franchise's fans began to gather around London's Trafalgar Square more than 24 hours ahead of the premiere.
BBC London reported that over 3,000 "Harry Potter" enthusiasts set themselves up with sleeping bags and makeshift cardboard mattresses just to catch a glimpse of their favorite stars.
Due in theaters on July 15th, the final chapter - which was directed by David Yates - "begins as Harry, Ron, and Hermione continue their quest of finding and destroying the Dark Lord's three remaining Horcruxes, the magical items responsible for his immortality. But as the mystical Deathly Hallows are uncovered, and Voldemort finds out about their mission, the biggest battle begins and life as they know it will never be the same again."
