Harry Potter was my home, my family, my world and Hermione (still is) my favorite fictional character of all time. I think a journalist once said it was irritating how many times during an interview I mentioned how lucky I was and started counting… BUT I DAMN WELL KNEW!!! And still know,” Emma wrote on Instagram along with a few behind-the-scenes photos on set of the Harry Potter movies.

“I am proud not just of what we as group contributed as actors to the franchise but also as the children that became young adults that walked that path,” Emma continued. “I look at my fellow cast members now and I am just so proud of who everyone has become as people. I am proud we were kind to each other that we supported one another and that we held up something meaningful.”

Emma went on to thank the Harry Potter fans who continue to love the movies and books years after the last movie, Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows Part 2, was released in theaters back in 2011.

“Thank you to the fans that have continued to show their support well after the last chapter closed. The magic of the world wouldn’t exist without you. Thank you for fighting to make it such an inclusive and loving place,” Emma added. “I still miss the crew who made these films all the time. Thank you for all of your hard work too – I know your contributions sometimes get overlooked.”

That same day, it was announced that Emma will be reuniting with Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and TONS of other Harry Potter stars in an upcoming 20th anniversary special heading to HBO Max! Get the scoop here.
