Emma Watson's touching tribute

Hermione actress, Emma Watson, paid tribute to the franchise on social media.

She wrote, 'Harry Potter was my home, my family, my world and Hermione (still is) my favorite fictional character of all time.'

'I think a journalist once said it was irritating how many times during an interview I mentioned how lucky I was and started counting… BUT I DAMN WELL KNEW!!! And still know.'

She went on, 'I am proud not just of what we as group contributed as actors to the franchise but also as the children that became young adults that walked that path.'

'I look at my fellow cast members now and I am just so proud of who everyone has become as people.'

'Thank you to the fans that have continued to show their support well after the last chapter closed.'

'The magic of the world wouldn’t exist without you. Thank you for fighting to make it such an inclusive and loving place.'

'I still miss the crew who made these films all the time.'

'Thank you for all of your hard work too - I know your contributions sometimes get overlooked.'

'Happy 20th Anniversary Potterheads!'
