Who is Emma Watson?

undefined - Emma WatsonEmma Watson

Emma Watson is a British actress and model who reprised the role of the know-it-all, cherubic, side-kick, ‘Hermione Granger’ in the Harry Potter film franchise. When she committed to the Harry Potter series, little did she know that her life would change forever. She lived an extremely humble life in her earlier days and was selected for this role out of sheer, dumb luck. This doe-eyed beauty was a star student in her school, brilliant at academics (much like her character in the film) and was interested in sports activities and theater productions. Having appeared in a couple of school dramas, her teachers suggested that she try-out for the first installment of the best-selling series. A couple of takes and a few lines later, her life turned completely as she became one of the most recognized and the most bankable Hollywood stars with a worth of over $10 million. Apart from her involvement in the ‘Harry Potter’ franchise, she has appeared in ‘The Tale of Despereaux’ and also starred in the film adaptation of ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’ and ‘Noah’. Acting aside, she has also forayed into modeling and has also begun to spread awareness about a number of humanitarian issues.
