The Rise and Fall of Friendship among Harry Potter Actors


The Harry Potter movies are without a doubt one of the most famous movie series ever made. It brought together a group of young actors who later became famous around the world. But the success of the franchise had some negative effects, especially on the relationships between the main actors.

Rise and fall of friendships:

On the set of the Harry Potter movies, Daniel Radcliffe, who played Harry Potter, and Rupert Grint, who played Ron Weasley, became best friends. They spent a lot of time together, and it was clear that they were friends both on and off screen. But after the show was over, their relationship changed.

Daniel Radcliffe told The Sunday Times in an interview in 2014 that he and Rupert Grint had not talked in a long time. He also said that he felt like he had lost something and was sad that their friendship was over. Daniel thought that it might be because they were both busy with their own lives and careers.

What Emma Watson Did?

Daniel and Rupert might have stopped being friends, but Emma Watson, who played Hermione Granger, stayed a better friend to both of them. In interviews, Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe have talked a lot about how close they are. Emma has called Daniel her “dear friend” and “brother.” In fact, in the last movie of the series, they even kissed on screen.

In the same way, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint are also very close friends. In an interview, Rupert said that he could count on Emma for anything, and Emma has said that Rupert has been there for her when things were hard.

Possible Causes of the Distance

It’s not clear why Daniel and Rupert stopped being friends with each other. But it’s common for people to change their friendships as they get older and their priorities change. After the Harry Potter movies, both Daniel and Rupert have been busy with their careers. Daniel has tried out many different roles in movies, TV shows, and plays. Rupert, on the other hand, has mostly made movies and TV shows that are not part of a big studio.

Daniel Radcliffe has talked about the pressures that came with being part of such a big franchise, in addition to their busy schedules. In an interview with The Telegraph in 2013, Daniel said that being famous for playing Harry Potter was hard for him. He also said that he had turned to drinking to deal with the stress and that he had gotten help to stop.


Some of the most well-known characters and scenes in movie history came from the Harry Potter series. Even though the series is over, fans will always remember the friendships that were made on the set. Even though it’s sad that Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint stopped being friends after the series ended, it’s good to know that Emma Watson stayed a better friend to both of them. At the end of the day, friendships can be complicated, and while some may last a lifetime, others may not.
