Emma Watson interviews Lin-Manuel Miranda

This interview is really interesting, disregarding Emma Watson’s semi-awkward interviewing skills. In it, Emma Watson and Lin-Manuel Miranda discuss Hamilton for HeForShe Arts Week. Nerding out, cooing over words, and groaning about problematic Alexander Hamilton.

My favorite bits are in the first 20 minutes of the interview, where they discuss storytelling; a part around 35min where they discuss change and growth, and about 42:50 where Emma Watson asks “Do you see yourself in Hamilton?” and Lin-Manuel Miranda says “I see myself in all of them…And the fun of writing? Is you get to be all of them.”
