Emma Watson shares her experience on her latest film Noah

Emma Watson is surely excited for and anxiously looking forwward to her first big-budget post-Potter role, in biblical action blockbuster “Noah" and as it appears the talented actress has been making use of her magic lessons and all those years at Hogwarts have prepared her well for the silver screen. The upcoming movie is directed by Darren Aronofsky and Emma Watson is playing the role of Ila who is supposed to the wife of Noah’s eldest son, Shem, who is played by Douglas Booth.

The film is desifnitely going to pack in a lot of talent and its cast has already drawn a lot of attention from the fans and what more can one ask for when Russel Crowe is part of the movie. He is playing the lead role of the arch building Noah and yet another talented Jennifer Connelly is going to play his wife. The movie is going to be dark, psychological reimagining of the Old Testament flood story and it has already been banned in three Arab countries even before the film was showed on worldwide premiere.

Moving back to the role of Emma Watson, she willingly shared her experience with the movie and revealed that all those Harry Potter movies had really prepared her well for a physically punishing role, the challenge of realistically portraying childbirth on-screen and working with a cast of veteran actors. As the actress was being asked if she would take any different approach to the role in Noah as compared to Harry Potter, it was revealed that there is alot in common with these two movies becauase for Watson they both had extremely challenging physical roles. She remembers having to shoot in the freezing cold weather of Scotland through the morning hours. She remembers being on the set of Noah where the director “Okay, the water is going to be cold, we’re probably going to be here for a full day, try and conserve your energy between takes, like keep warm and make sure you eat properly. This is going to be physically very demanding.” She felt nervous about being there at first but then the courage came from all the tough physically challenging scenes she had done for Harry Potter.

Apparently the most difficult part of the movie was shooting a scene of giving birth. When Emma Watson was asked if she had to do any careful reading, she replied that though she didnt have to study the script so much but she certainly did a lot for research for the birth scene because she had never done anything like that before. This scene had to be taken seriously because it had to be really very real and extremely raw. She even went to the extent of talking to pregnant ladies whenever she came across them.

Besides all the difficulties, Watson is more than thrilled to have this role and most important of all, she is thankful for having an opportunity to work with legendary stars such as Russell Crowe and Sir Anthony Hopkins and Jennifer Connelly and Ray Winstone.
