Tom: It originally said in the script that Hermione slaps Draco. I think they were worried that a punch was gonna be a little too physical. So I said to Emma, “do you wanna run this? We should rehearse this to make it as convincing as possible. Slap me!” She was like, “no i’m not gonna” and I was like “come on, slap me. Let’s do it right now to get the emotions.” And when I said slap me I was like “movie slap me.”
Emma: I feel terrible. I feel really bad. I’m not really sure what I was thinking.
Tom: She just went ‘whush’ and just smacked me right across the face. I didn’t know what to do. I was like “oh yeah that was really great” and kind of just walked off sheepishly.
