Emma Watson has declared her snog with Harry Potter co-star Rupert Grint in the final film of the wizard series to be the "most anticipated kiss in history".

The 21-year-old - who plays Hermione Granger - said she and Rupert decided it had to be special after the years of tension-building.

"I think we did alright," she concluded, despite the pressure, in an interview with ITV1's Daybreak.

Emma said: "I think that's like the most anticipated kiss in history. We've been building tension to this moment for like eight movies."

The actress said both she and Rupert - who has starred as Ron Weasley in the movies since they began - felt the pressure.

"We were like, 'People have been really waiting for this moment, and we've really got to pull this off.' And I was like 'yes, I know. What are we going to do?'"

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 - the last of eight films - receives its premiere on Thursday in London.

Emma said she felt incredibly emotional when filming finally ended on the movies with which she has been involved for half her life.

"I cried, cried, cried, cried, cried - it was really emotional and overwhelming."
