Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson was born in Paris, France, to English parents, Jacqueline Luesby and Chris Watson, both lawyers.  From the age of 6, Emma knew that she wanted to be an actress and, for a number of years, she trained at the Oxford branch of Stagecoach Theatre Arts, a part-time theatre school where she studied singing, dancing and acting. By the age of 10, she had performed and taken the lead in various Stagecoach productions and school plays. In 1999, casting began for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (2001), the film adaptation of British author J.K. Rowling’s bestselling novel. Casting agents found Emma through her Oxford theatre teacher. After 8 consistent auditions, producer David Heyman told Emma and fellow applicants, Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, that they had been cast for the roles of the three leads, Hermione Granger, Harry Potter and Ron Weasley. The release of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (2001) was Emma’s cinematic screen debut. After the release of the first Harry Potter film, Emma became one of the most well-known actresses in the world. Trivia

Personal Quotes

  •  [in response to a reporter asking her whether she always wore pigtails]: “I never wear pigtails, I wear plaits.”
  • “It was unbelievable seeing me as an action figure! In a few months, toddlers all around the country will be biting my head off!”
  • “Hermione uses all these big long tongue twister words, I don’t know what she’s going on about half the time!”
  • “I remember reading this thing that Elizabeth Taylor wrote. She had her first kiss in character. On a movie set. It really struck me. I don’t know how or why, but I had this sense that if I wasn’t really careful, that could be me. That my first kiss could be in somebody else’s clothes. And my experiences could all belong to someone else.”
  • “I’m a feminist, but I think that romance has been taken away a bit for my generation. I think what people connect with in novels is this idea of an overpowering, encompassing love – and it being more important and special than anything and everything else.”
