I had a thing for a girl once. And I had a shot at her, but I didn’t take it. For a little while, I’d lay in bed every night, wondering if it was a mistake.

"My life revolved around Harry Potter." - Emma Watson
"I will be devastated (when it’s over). There is nothing I watch without it triggering a series of memories. Everything (about the films) is so linked to my life. At the same time, it is exciting. It is the end.” - Daniel Radcliffe

She’s not my daughter. I stole her as a baby from an insane woman. She’s a pawn. Nothing more. She means nothing to me.
