When we take the name Emma Watson, most people ask, “Who?”. Of course when we say Hermione from the movies everybody recognises her. The brilliant witch who had the solution to possibly everything and had her heart in the right place. Cast for the role of Hermoine Granger at the age of 11 years Emma Watson played it to perfection and came of age on the sets of Harry Potter. She lived Hermione from the age of 11 to 18, and like all the young stars of that movie has worked hard to leave that character behind and do new things. Of all the actors from the Harry Potter films, Emma Watson is probably the one person who has grown and become quite a woman unfazed by her fame and unhindered by the Hermoine character.
She has actively supported women’s education and visited countries to spread awareness regarding the same.
She was appointed the United Nations ambassador for Women Goodwill, and the world adored her as she nervously gave her speech on equal rights for women.
She was voted the no. 1 person in AskMen’s list of Top 99 Outstanding Women of 2015, and stood 26 in TIME 100 list of most influential people (source: www.wikipedia.org).
She boldly said that being a perfectionist, and a woman at the same time, does not mean “bossy”, and that men and women are entitled to equal rights, as none should be subjected to gender based hatred.
She earned her Literature degree at Brown University, much like Hermoine would have expected her to.
She accepted the role of the unconventionally beautiful “Sam” in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and the surprising role of “Nicki” in The Bling Ring.
She will be playing the character of “Belle” in Beauty & The Beast, and we cannot think of anyone else who would be able to portray a character which is so tender, and yet so strong.
She accepted Hermoine as the one to make Emma watson and said, “I could be 100 years old and in my rocker, but I’ll still be very proud that I was part of the Harry Potter films.” All the Potterheads sure went crazy on this statement.
