Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows Part 1 shakes things up for the plot, audience and cast in a serious way.
But one of the most talked about moments is a 'topless' kiss between Hermione and Harry that Emma Watson has revealed held its own challenges.
While she is thrilled the scene delivered the sort of amorousness the filmmakers wanted, she admitted the clinch between her character Hermione Granger and Daniel's alter ego, boy wizard Harry Potter, felt anything but sexy.
"I'm proud of it, and considering how b****y awkward it was, I'm really impressed we managed to make it look anything other than awkward - because Dan and I are like brother and sister, so it was tough making it look passionate," she said.
The snog took several takes. The first was considered too tame, and director David Yates told his stars to be more "pagan and mad".
"I realised I would have fewer takes to do if I just got on with it and just gave David what he wanted, which was a passionate kiss. Which was something that would really rock Ron's boat and really be quite painful and nasty for him to watch," Emma added.
Speaking to MTV, she admitted that they were only let in on the truly risque nature of the scene mere hours before.
"It was only the day before that they said, 'Oh, by the way, we hope it's all right, but we want you to be topless, and we're going to cover you in silver paint,' " Watson laughed. "It was awkward enough as it was without the silver paint and the strapless bra, but whatever. It works. It looks good for the story."
Daniel, who has already described the kiss as "vigorous", added: "I thought it was going to be like a soft, sensual sort of moment, and it was this very vigorous kissing scene. She really went for it. It caught me slightly off guard, but yeah, I'm not complaining."
