It appears that Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson got into a MASSIVE fight while filming ‘Harry Potter’.
Daniel has previously shared that he and Emma have a sibling relationship. All the siblings argue from time to time, but their argument was so heated that they didn’t speak to each other for days!
Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson Didn’t Speak for Days After ‘Harry Potter’ Feud
While filming the franchise‘s fourth film, ‘Goblet of Fire’, Daniel revealed that he and Emma had a falling out over the Latin language, which resulted in the silent treatment!
In an interview with contact musicDaniel admitted that they used to “argue about everything”.
“Oh my God. We used to argue about everything,” Daniel recalled. “Religion. Politics.”
“I remember one of the big fights we had about the fourth movie – we didn’t speak to each other for a few days – was about…She was arguing about the Latin language, that nobody knows what it’s like , what a Latin accent should be like,” he recalled. “And I was like, ‘Yeah, but there’s still a lot of talk in the Catholic church.'”
“Such a goofy argument, in hindsight, and it just got totally out of hand,” he added.
Although they managed to resolve their feud after a few days and get back to work, Daniel said he learned a valuable lesson about Emma.
“I would definitely advise anyone, if you’re going to argue with her, know your s—” he joked.
Emma Watson was under a lot of pressure as a child star. When fame got too much for her, she almost considered quitting the franchise for good!

In the HBO “Harry Potter 20and Anniversary: Back to Hogwarts’ special which began on New Year’s Day, Rupert Grint and Watson have a candid conversation about their difficulty in dealing with their newfound fame.
“You’re thinking about quitting, I never really talked to you about that,” Grint said.
“Yeah, I think I was scared,” Watson replied. “I don’t know if you ever felt like you reached a tipping point where you were, it’s kind of an eternity now.”
“The fame thing had finally hit hard,” added Watson.
Grint revealed that he’s also had moments “throughout” the franchise where he found himself “thinking about what life would be like if I called it a day.”
Director David Yateswho directed the last four films in the “Harry Potter” franchise, revealed that Watson nearly left when “Order of the Phoenix” began production due to the stress of filming.
He revealed that one thing that the producer of the series David Hayman “And the studio told me about it, Emma isn’t sure she wants to come back and do another Potter.”
However, Watson revealed no one had to “convince” her to stay. “The fans really wanted you to succeed, and we all really support each other. Is that great?” she said.
Daniel Radcliffe had a crush on set… Not Emma, but Helena Bonham Carter!
Everyone has embarrassing crushes when they’re young, but Daniel Radcliffe wrote a love letter to Helena Bonham Carter and read it out loud to her during the special! The letter was written at the end of filming in 2011. Radcliffe was around 21 at the time and Carter was around 45, so nothing romantic ever developed between them.
“Dear HBC,” Radcliffe read. “It was a pleasure to be your costar and coaster in the sense that I always ended up holding your coffee.”
“I love you,” he continued. “And I wish I had been born 10 years earlier, I might have [had] a chance. Lots of love and thanks for being cool.
Apparently all of his first kisses and first girlfriends were all on the “Harry Potter” set, particularly around the time of “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”, which Radcliffe jokingly described as “the hormone of point”.
Matthew Lewiswho played Neville Longbottom, admitted“There were crushes and people would date and break up like you do in school. It was the exact same environment but it was just in a Defense Against the Dark Arts class.
Hopefully Daniel Radcliffe won’t have any more on-set feuds when he takes on his next role as Bizarre Al Yankovic in his Roku biopic!
