Emma Watson Biography

Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson is an English actress and model. She rose to prominence portraying Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film series, appearing alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint in all eight Potter films beginning in 2001. Over ten years' time, the franchise earned Watson worldwide fame, critical accolades, and more than £10 million—"enough money never to have to work again". She kept at it, however; Watson's first work outside Potter included lending her voice to The Tale of Despereaux and appearing in the television adaptation of the novel Ballet Shoes. Since then, she has taken on starring roles in The Perks of Being a Wallflower and The Bling Ring, made a brief appearance as an "exaggerated" version of herself in This Is the End, and portrayed the title character's adopted daughter in Noah. From 2011 to 2014 she split her time between working on film projects and going to university, graduating from Brown with a degree in English literature.

Watson's modelling work has included campaigns for Burberry and Lancôme. As a fashion consultant, she helped create a line of clothing for People Tree. Source: Wikipedia
