With the Harry Potter franchise coming to an end, it’s not surprising that many harry potter fans are feeling nostalgic with the upcoming HBO special arriving next week.
Some Harry potter stars have even revealed they almost quit the series early on in their career out of fear of typecasting. Ahead of HBO’s celebratory Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts special, we thought it would be appropriate to take a look at what some harry potter actors were thinking when they first started filming and what made them want to stay with the series.
Harry Potter stars Rupert Grint and Emma Watson recently revealed that they both considered quitting the franchise during its early years. Grint said that he remembers Watson telling him, “You were considering pulling out, I’ve never really spoken to you about that.”
“I think I was scared,” Watson replied, “I don’t know if you ever felt like it got to a tipping point when you were like, this is kind of forever now.”
Grint shared his own worries. According to Digital Spy, Grint now realizes all three of them must have felt similarly. In a recent interview, “Evanna Lynch [Luna Lovegood] revealed that she almost quit the movie franchise.”

While in a recent interview with Digital Spy, Bonnie Wright [Ginny Weasley] admitted that it would have been “devastating” if she left early from the movies.

“I also had kind of similar feelings to Emma, kind of contemplating what life would be like if I called it a day. But we never really spoke about it, I guess we were just kind of going through it at our own pace, and we were kind of in the moment at the time. It just didn’t really occur to us that we were all probably having similar feelings.”

Watson, on the other hand, decided to return for one more film after another.: “The fame thing had finally hit home – in a big way,” she said. “No one had to convince me to see it through.” It was the series’ followers, on the other hand, that helped her overcome her fears and stick with it. “The fans genuinely wanted me to succeed and they all genuinely have each other’s backs. How great is that?”
Watson’s crush on Felton, according to previews, was one of the episode’s many surprises. According to ET Canada, Watson has made her feelings for Draco Malfoy evident. But, “he was three years above me and so for him he was like, ‘You’re like my little sister’.”
Felton felt that way too. “I became very protective over her,” he said, “Yeah, I’ve always had a soft spot for her and that continues to this day.”
The premiere date for HBO Max’s Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts is January 1.

There are many different reasons why people love the Harry Potter franchise.

Harry Potter follows the story of Harry Potter, an ordinary eleven-year-old boy who finds out that he is actually a wizard. harry potter lives in the ordinary world, also known as muggle world; meanwhile, Harry’s cousin Dudley lives in the magical world, known as the Wizarding World. harry has never known about his extraordinary left until Hagrid comes to his house and tells him that Harry is a wizard and Harry is invited to attend Hogwarts school of witchcraft and wizardry. harry is overjoyed about his invitation and can’t wait to leave for Hogwarts school. But before Harry leaves, he learns that the witches and wizards who live in the magical world live in secret because they fear being persecuted by muggles since muggles are ordinary people who can’t do magic. Harry is, of course, excited to be a part of this magical world and Harry spends his years at Hogwarts learning about spells, potions, and everything else he needs to know in order to survive the wizarding world.
While Harry Potter was a good movie, it wasn’t until Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets that Harry Potter really began to take off.
