Biography

Famous for playing the role of Hermione Granger in all eight adaptations of the "Harry Potter" film series, actress Emma Watson was one of those rare actresses who enjoyed a balanced, normal life despite being one of the most recognized and highest-earning stars of the franchise. Her meteoric rise to fame was nothing short of magical. With virtually no professional acting experience, the nine-year-old Watson was selected to co-star in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" (2001) and was propelled into international stardom with her very first film. Her portrayal of the bossy, miss-know-it-all Hermione was pitch perfect, so it was no surprise when she was recast alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint in subsequent installments. In her late teens, Watson showed her fans a more stylish, sophisticated side. She became a regular at fashion shows, befriended legendary fashion icons like Karl Lagerfeld and often arrived at red carpet events swathed in haute couture. The fashion house Burberry took notice of the budding fashionista and signed Watson to be the new face of the brand in 2009. With a coveted fashion contract under her belt and worldwide acclaim as one of Harry's brainy sidekicks, the multi-dimensional actress successfully made her way into cinematic history.
