Emma Watson

Who knew that the little British girl plucked out of obscurity to portray Hermione Granger in the ‘Harry Potter’ movie franchise would grow up to be such a talented, stylish and intelligent actress? Emma Watson, born in 1990, had only acted in school plays before being cast as Hermione at the age of 9. She starred in all eight ‘Potter’ films. Despite her early success and having already made enough money to last her for life, she sought out a series of challenging acting roles. She was cast against type as a club kid turned criminal in 2013’s ‘The Bling Ring’ and took her first trip back in time in the 2014 biblical epic ‘Noah.’ A rare former child star without any public personal drama, Watson graduated from Brown University in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in English literature.

Selected filmography: ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’ (2009), ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’ (2012), ‘Noah’ (2014)
