Bringing the Harry Potter Books alive on the silver screen, Emma Watson will be remembered as Hermione Granger. Born April 15, 1990, in Paris France, she has that “girl next door” look with a touch of sophistication and seriousness that is one of a kind. Her fans have watched as she grew up onstage, and we are all waiting to see what she will do next. Making the cross over from child actress to more serious roles and finding fame as a model, she has much more to reveal to her adoring fans over time.
Born to two lawyers, there is no wonder why she handles herself with so much class and seriousness. Her parents, divorcing early on, introduced her to two separate cultures. Living part of the time in France, and the other part in England, she is fluent in both English and French. Knowing that she wanted to pursue a life in the theater, at the young age of 6, she trained at the Stagecoach Theatre Arts focusing on dancing, singing and acting. A child theatrical star, she was in many productions through her school training.
When the role of Hermione Granger was up for audition, the casting agent found her through her placement at school. She was subjected to eight different auditions before being selected. The favored actress by the author herself, Watson wowed Rowling, who was in her corner from the beginning. The Harry Potter movies have given her more exposure than any young actress can dream. The critics have been nothing but favorable stating that she was underused in many of the films and that they wanted to see more.
Taking a young audience by storm, many teenagers and preteens wanted to be her, and in 2008, she was the youngest actress to grace the cover of Teen Vogue. Becoming wealthy purely from the Harry Potter franchise, by 2010, Watson was named the highest paid female star in Hollywood earning $19 million in just 2009 alone. Adding to her accolades, she was chosen Woman of the Year by the magazine British GQ in 2013.
Not just an actress, her beautiful face has earned her a role as a model. Modeling for Teen Vogue, in 2009, she became partnered with Burberry. She has been awarded such prestigious modeling awards as becoming the Style Icon award dished out by Elle magazine and is currently the face of Lancome. A fashion aficionado, in 2009, she helped to develop a line of People Tree, designing the Fair Trade fashion brand.
The key to her success is perhaps the way that she carries herself. Being highly educated and well refined, she displays a kind of classic beauty that is unparalleled by many girls her age. Seemingly, above all, the nonsense that we are accustomed to with young stars, she appears to the public to be wise beyond her years.
