Emma Watson could not hold back the tears as she addressed an enormous crowd in the thousands at the London premiere of the eighth and final Harry Potter film, the Daily Mail reports.
"I will miss being her. It's devastating. She has pushed me and made me a better person," Watson said. As her speech came to an end, the actress, who has been launched into super-stardom by the franchise, leaned on her fellow cast members and author JK Rowling as tears flowed down her cheeks.
Trafalgar Square was nearly filled and side streets had to be shut down to accommodate the vast number of people that showed up to say goodbye to the cast one final time.
Actor Daniel Radcliffe, who plays Harry Potter, said “Every opportunity I get from now on all goes down to the fact I got very, very lucky when I was eleven,” referring to the day he was casted. Watson responded: "You didn't 'get lucky' - you were and are the perfect Harry and will be forever”
On July 15, the story of Harry Potter, which has spanned more than a decade and translated into 67 different languages, will come to a close as the eighth and final film in the series makes its premiere in the United States.
