Tom Hanks has only good things to say about his co-star Emma Watson. Hanks is impressed by the Harry Potter star’s dynamic personality at work.
“Emma is phenomenally untouched and grounded in ways and she’s also crazy, facile when it comes down to the architecture of making movies,” says Hanks who will soon be seen with the 27-year-old actor in James Ponsoldt’s techno-thriller, The Circle.
The Oscar-winning actor feels that Emma is accustomed to complicated filmmaking after working in the famous Harry Potter film franchise.
“She’s done all those Harry Potter films, so she knows a very complicated kind of filmmaking. Emma also knows that none of that (complexities of filmmaking) really matters unless you’re actually going to be able to inhabit the moment and her ability to inhabit the moment I think is pretty profound,” says Hanks who is known for popular films such as Forrest Gump (1994), Cast Away (2000) and Sully (2016).
Meanwhile, in an earlier interview, Emma Watson, who is known for her films such as Noah (2014), The Vicar of Dibley (2015) and Beauty and the Beast (2017), had said that working with Tom Hanks for The Circle was a dream come true for her. “Getting to act with Tom Hanks in any scene is bit of a dream. He’s so generous and funny and easy-going and he’s all the things you would want him to be,” she said.
