Emma Watson owes her star status to her portrayal of the Muggle-born know-it-all Hermione Granger in all eight ‘Harry Potter’ films. The British actress became the envy of witch-wannabes the world round when she was chosen to play the precocious Hermione at the age of 9. The world watched as the budding actress bloomed, along with her magically inclined character, into one of the most beautiful and talented young women of her generation. However, as Watson has demonstrated, life goes on after Hogwarts. After finishing up the fantasy series in 2011, she has gone on to star in ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’ and ‘The Bling Ring,’ and she is lined up for more film projects in the future. Watson shares Hermione’s passionate commitment to learning; she has attended two of the most prestigious schools in the world (not counting Hogwarts) - Brown University and Oxford University. The brainy starlet has also done some modeling and has been the face of Lancome and Burberry.
