They may have been one of the most memorable fictional romances of our childhoods, but not everyone was behind Ron and Hermione being endgame in the Harry Potter series.
People Magazine recently caught up with some members of the cast at Universal Orlando's Celebration of Harry Potter event, and out of all the fan favorites in attendance — including Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) and Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) — Ron Weasley had the most to say about love on set.
Rupert Grint confessed he can't re-watch the scene of Ron and Hermione kissing
By the time Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 finally rolled around, fans were already anticipating Ron and Hermione recognizing their feelings for each other and finally getting together.
Though the resulting kiss in the Chamber of Secrets had us cheering, the actors themselves were less than thrilled with throwing romance into their almost decade-long friendship.
"I never look back at that scene... I've known Emma since she was literally 9 years old and we had this very brother-sister relationship... And it just felt very surreal. I have a memory of her face getting closer and closer. Like, 'Oh my God.' I can't really remember anything apart from that."
So, for any of those still wondering, there was officially no behind-the-scenes dating for Emma Watson and Rupert Grint.
Luckily, we don't have these same qualms, so let's revisit the smooch!
I know some people had their issues with this relationship, but I always thought the development felt natural. Plus, after the years of torment and pursuit from the most sinister wizard around, a little love story was a welcome addition.
Still, Rupert felt that getting the moment once was enough, but they had to film multiple takes.
"One take was enough. It was such a huge moment and there was so much expectation. Quite a lot of pressure actually."
The pressure's off now, but that's still not going to stop people from shipping Harry and Hermione.
