Why we love Emma Watson
Oh, how close we came to not knowing Emma ‘English Rose’ Watson, having nearly lost her to France, where the elfin Harry Potter starlet lived until she was five. Sarkozy’s loss is our gain, of course, and once the accent was dropped the young natural blonde was bagging roles in school plays like The Happy Prince.
Surprisingly, perhaps, Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone was Emma Watson's first professional acting gig at 11 – it was also the top-earning film of 2001 and netted her nominations for five awards. Yeah, only five, but it was her first role after all so we’ll let her off. Still living at home with her mum in Oxford keeps Emma grounded. But somehow, though… we like that, they've clearly got an AGA.
Five instalments in to the Harry Potter set however, Emma Watson decided to do other work too. Shattering a bunch of Hogwarts-worshippers illusions, Emma appeared in a television film called Ballet Shoes. With all of the Potter films now finally done with, it’s time for Watson to fully branch out in to the real world. Well, as real as the world can be when you’re raking in millions of pounds a year. She started with a film called My Week with Marilyn in 2011, and with her fingers in many a fashion pie – including modelling for Burberry – we can expect to see plenty more of her in the coming years.
