Emma Watson was the only girl among the main cast of the “Harry Potter” films, leaving her to deal with the consequences of fame and being a child star mostly on her own. Watson was “not only younger, but she was by herself,” Tom Felton said in the upcoming “Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts” special (via People), explaining that he could always count on his “cronies” Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint to talk things through. “People definitely forget what she took on and how gracefully she did it,” Felton added.

Watson had always wanted to be an actor, but she never considered she would jump into a decade-long project right off the bat. “I think I was scared,” Watson told Grint. “I don’t know if you ever felt like it got to a tipping point where you were like, ‘This is kind of forever now.'” The permanent quality of stardom and the importance she placed on education led Watson to nearly quit. “The fame thing had finally hit home in a big way,” Watson said.

Watson hesitated before signing the film contracts more often than the others, producer David Heyman told The Hollywood Reporter in 2013. “Each time there was a negotiation, it was not about a financial [matter], it really was about, ‘Do I want to be a part of this?’ We had to be sensitive to her needs and how important school was to her,” he said.
