Emma Watson is a British actress who gained fame by playing Hermione Granger of the Harry Potter series. Her prior acting experience before Harry Potter was only in school plays. She was discovered through her theatre teacher and went through eight auditions before getting the role in Harry Potter. Ever since then, she went on to play Hermione Granger in all the Harry Potter movies. Currently, she is filming the last installment of the series.
Aside from Harry Potter, Watson has also starred in the 2007 TV film, Ballet Shoes, and the 2008 animated film, The Tale of Despereaux, as the voice of Princess Pea. Watson has been keen on finishing her higher education which explains why her media work has been limited. However, she was seen modeling Burberry’s Autumn/Winter 2009 Collection as part of the contract she has signed with the company.
Watson has earned more than £10 million for the Harry Potter series and admits that she does not have to work form money unlike many young adults today. She was rank 6th of Forbes list of Most Valuable Young Stars. But the fact remains that she wants to finish school first before concentrating on her acting career.
