A wallflower no more: In this new clip from the upcoming The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, Logan Lerman‘s character Charlie gets a warm toast from his new friends, step-siblings Sam (Emma Watson) and Patrick (Ezra Miller) as they welcome him into their group.
In the coming-of-age drama, Logan plays a loner who has a life-changing experience after being befriended by the eccentric, outgoing pair. In real life the 20-year-old actor had high-praise for his co-star Emma. “She’s a brilliant actress, and this is a great debut for her outside the ‘Harry Potter’ series,” he said.
For her part, Emma sounds thrilled to be a part of the highly-anticipated film. “I feel like I’ve been waiting for ‘Perks.’ I was waiting for this story, this script, this moment,” she told MTV News. “I was a huge ‘Harry Potter’ fan even before I did the movies, and I thought I would never find a character or material I care about so deeply and personally as I did that, and then this came along and completely swept it all.”
‘Perks’ is a mature role for Emma, but she has no doubt her young adult audience will be touched by the film. “I don’t think there will be one teenager who will watch this and not have one story or one moment that they don’t deeply feel they can relate to,” she said.
