If you closely examine J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter novel series, which got the star-studded treatment of becoming a major movie franchise, then one can see that it is a comedy of sorts on its own. At least for the first few movies in the franchise, the plot revolved around exploring and finding new things, all with a little dash of humor.
Even the characters were perfectly cast for their roles- Daniel Radcliffe gave us an excellent performance as the titular character, Emma Watson as Hermione Granger, and Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley. Here’s a throwback to one hilarious off-screen moment between the three.
The Harry Potter Trio’s Character Essays Are Hilarious
Emma Watson, like the real-life Hermione she is, is doing exactly what you’d expect of her (and her character), after the end of the Harry Potter movie series- activism. Becoming a UN Goodwill Ambassador, and founding the Time’s Up UK NGO, she’s closely following the footsteps of her character.
It’s pretty clear that the 32-year-old actress was destined for greater heights and bigger goals ever since she jumped into the spotlight after her work in the Harry Potter series. This is why when she was asked by Prisoner of Azkaban director, Alfonso Cuaron, to write an essay on her character- she ended up writing a whopping 16 pages about the Muggle-born!
As for the franchise’s leading star Daniel Radcliffe, who plays the titular character, he has done all he can to branch out his career after the end of the fantasy series in 2011- starring in numerous movies like The Cripple of Inishmaan, Swiss Army Man, and so on. However, unlike co-star Watson, when asked for a similar essay, he was only able to manage a single page on his character.
The final piece in the Harry Potter trio is completed by Rupert Grint’s Ron Weasley. He’s also got a lot going on- he’ll be starring in M. Night Shyamalan’s Knock at the Cabin as well as work on Guillermo del Toro’s Cabinet of Curiosities. Unlike his two co-actors at the time, Grint couldn’t even manage to write a single page to present to Cuaron- because he had exams!
As fans can see, the legendary childhood trio of every fantasy-loving adult today was quite funny on their own.

This Hilarious Story Of The Harry Potter Trio Amuses Fans
It’s no doubt that this little anecdote about the three most memorable Harry Potter stars is amusing to fans, in fact, it fits their character to the T.
Emma Watson became one with her role as the 16-page essay shows her dedication to do so. Rupert Grint, despite nailing his role as well, did the least and showed a lot in the franchise. And as for Daniel Radcliffe, he did just enough!
The story of the character essay is indeed very fitting to the roles that the three actors got to play-
Gonna be honest, sounds like a fake fact

More of Cuaron!-
Fits their character tbh, Really wish he directed more movies in the franchise. Azkaban is my favorite

Will we ever see these three in a Harry Potter movie again? They did have their reunion through the HBO Max TV special Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts, but no official plans for a continuation have been made.
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is currently available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video.
