Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 2 – Part 2, Ron and Hermione finally love each other, Snape dies in regret
A much awaited moment of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 was the kiss between Ron and Hermione, to sanction the beginning of an explicit relationship. In fact it appears that neither Rupert Grint neither Emma Watson they were like that convinced of the thing, so much so that at the time of the take they continued to consider him a little unnaturalalmost like a “kiss between brother and sister“. Beyond the fact that, still a child, Emma Watson had judged the idea of kissing Daniel or Rupert disgusting (“It’s not in my contract!” she allegedly joked), a certain forcing was admitted by it JK Rowling. The author admitted that she continued on the path of Hermione and Ron as a couple only on principle, to keep faith with the idea he had at the beginning of the saga, regardless of how much later the two proved to be compatible during the course of the work. Emma and JK’s response is that the couple should still work out, maybe with some marriage counseling!
The last film is also important because it is revealed Snape/Snape’s (Alan Rickman) love for Lilythe Harry’s mother. A love never crowned with sweetness, indeed a harbinger of all the negativity that made Snape the tragically ambiguous character he has become in his life. It is well known that Rickman he wasn’t very convinced by the role or by the sagaand that was why JK Rowling decided to reveal only to himbefore anyone else and the whole world, Severus’ love for Lily, the cause of his vindictiveness towards Harry, the child he could have had. And that Lily got from a man who humiliated him. Rickman found it motivation to give his best with his interpretation, having fun provoking his colleagues, emphasizing how he was privileged to have known an explosive element of the saga in total exclusive!

With his experience, Fiennes probably knew that Tom would freeze, confused … and the reaction fit perfectly on the character of Draco at the time, mediocre ally of evil. Naturally, the scene was kept as it came from director David Yates.
When Hermione magically takes the form of Bellatrixat the beginning of the film, obviously on the set it was supposed to be Helena Bonham-Carter playing Hermione posing as Bellatrix. Ergo, Helena could not characterize Bellatrix as she had always done her. It was then decided that Emma Watson would first play her scenes in front of Helena Bonham-Carter, to show her how Hermione would experience them, so that Helena could imitate her approach.
