Emma Watson

Wiki info

With Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005), both Watson and the Harry Potter film series reached new milestones. The film set records for a Harry Potter opening weekend, a non-May opening weekend in the US, and an opening weekend in the UK. Critics praised the increasing maturity of Watson and her teenage co-stars; The New York Times called her performance "touchingly earnest". [46] For Watson, much of the humour of the film sprang from the tension among the three lead characters as they matured. She said, "I loved all the arguing. . . . I think it's much more realistic that they would argue and that there would be problems. "[47] Nominated for three awards for Goblet of Fire, Watson won a bronze Otto Award. [48][49] Later that year, Watson became the youngest person to appear on the cover of Teen Vogue,[50] an appearance she reprised in August 2009. [51] In 2006, Watson played Hermione in The Queen's Handbag, a special mini-episode of Harry Potter in celebration of Queen Elizabeth II's 80th birthday. [52]

By the age of ten, Watson had performed in various Stagecoach productions and school plays, including Arthur: The Young Years and The Happy Prince , [21] but she had never acted professionally before the Harry Potter series. Following the Dragon School, Watson moved on to Headington School . [14] While on film sets, she and her peers were tutored for up to five hours a day. [22] In June 2006, she took GCSE school examinations in ten subjects, achieving eight A* and two A grades. [14] [23]

According to an interview with Entertainment Weekly , the former Harry Potter star says her character — Belle — has an all-new backstory in the live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast.
