Thanks to Natalie of Jessie Cave Fan for letting us know that the trio was interviewed in Teen Magazine where they talked about different things and Rupert talks about the auditions with Lavender Brown.
We heard you checked out the top five actresses who auditioned to play Lavender Brown. What was that like?
(Laughs) Yeah, I went to some of the final stages of the auditions. It was really cool to be involved in that side of it, not that I really had any say. There were some good girls, but we didn’t do the kiss. We didn’t even talk about the kiss until the day we actually did it. But Jessie (Cave), who got the part of Lavender, is really cool.
Potions are a big part of the story. How were you at chemistry in real life?
I quite enjoyed it — the stuff with the Bunsen burners — but I never went to school much because I did most of my learning onset. We didn’t do many experiments, so I missed out on that.
Rumor is there’s a lot of Ping-Pong played on set and Emma is the one to beat!
I don’t like playing her because it’s really embarassing. She’s so much better than me and Dan, but we’re getting good. We’re quite quick!
Emma had this to say about beating Rupert in table tennis:
What’s your secret to being the onset Ping-Pong champ?
My parents played and they’re really competitive. They never user to let me win, so I got quite good at it. Dan and Rupert were quite taken aback that I could beat them. I think Rupert took it the worst.
