Emma Watson Celebrity Life
Emma Watson, an English activist, actor, and model, is known for playing Hermione Granger in the “Harry Potter” series. While most child actors find it challenging to find work after tasting immense success early on, in their lives, this wasn’t the case with Watson.
She appeared in many films such as “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” “Little Women,” and “My Week with Marilyn.”
The daughter of Chris Watson and Jacqueline Luesby, Emma Watson was born on 15 April 1990, in Paris, France. Until the age of five, she was in this city, before moving with her mother to Oxfordshire.
She went to the Dragon School until 2003, before going to Headington School.

She performed in several productions by the group, such as “The Happy Prince,” and “Arthur: The Young Years.” However, she didn’t act in any professional series until the age of 11.
The Start of a Wonderful Career
Emma Watson got her big break from the “Harry Potter” series, an adaptation of the novels written by J.K. Rowling, a British author. Casting agents discovered Watson, thanks to her theater teacher.
Impressed by her confidence, they asked her to audition. After eight rounds of auditions, the producer decided to cast Emma as Hermione Granger, along with the likes of Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint.
