Rupert Grint, who played Ron in the Harry Potter series, said he had a hard time kissing the actress Emma Watson.

Ever since “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” which was released at 2001, the two participated in all the movies, alongside Daniel Radcliffe, who played Harry.

In the final movie, which is to be released in just few days, Rupert and Emma kiss each other. It is one of the most anticipated scenes of the new movie as it is a fitting finale for the long journey that took their entire childhood.

Emma said “This kiss has been anticipated for eight movies and we really felt that and we wanted it to be good. And it was mainly weird. But we did a good job. It’s over.”

However, Rupert told TV Guide Network that the kiss scene with Emma was “quite a hard thing."

“That sounds ridiculous, ’cause obviously Em is lovely and lots of guys are probably really jealous of me. I think it was just out of kind of the adrenaline of the situation,” he added.

The second part of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” opens at theaters on July 13th in Korea.
