Group chats are great. For many of us, they're something that we get involved with every single day.
You can organise pints, nights out, birthdays... generally just whenever you fancy a piss up. Yeah there's banter too, and if you're out on a Tinder date then you can expect your phone to be blowing up for hours: 'What does she look like?", "Does she look like her profile pictures?!" "Send pics or it didn't happen" etc.
What did we do before them.
There's the occasional 'work' group chat that you often get dragged into as well. Most of the time, these conversations are drier than the cake Sandra brought in for her birthday. Sometimes, though, you strike gold.
Emma Watson has revealed that there's a Harry Potter cast group chat, and I imagine it's lit AF 24/7. Or at least I hope it is.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight while promoting her new movie Beauty And The Beast, she said: "We actually have a group WhatsApp."
She was trying to get them all together to see a screening of her new movie, but as they're all so busy it's proved quite difficult. She said: "It's kind of like Pokémon, I'm trying to catch them all right now."
Nice little reference there, Emma.
She also recently explained to Jimmy Kimmel that she used to 'ruin takes' while on the set of Harry Potter. "I would ruin takes! First [the directors] would be like, 'Cut! Emma, you're doing it again. You're mouthing Dan's lines.' And I'd be like, 'Ooh! I'm so sorry! So sorry! Oh, I feel so bad'!"
"I couldn't help myself, it was like, I was such a loser. I really loved those books, I really wanted to do my job well, and I kind of overdid it."
She's pretty much exactly the same as Hermione, which is great.
