Emma Watson Doesn’t Have Many Memories From Before ‘Harry Potter’


When audiences first met Hermione Granger, she was 11 years old. But Emma Watson, who portrayed the bright-eyed, intelligent, witch, was even younger than her character. Watson was just nine when she was cast in the Harry Potter film franchise, and her entire life changed. A true example of an overnight celebrity, Watson was flung headfirst into staggering amounts of fame, scrutiny, and wealth.

Emma Watson always felt deeply connected to Hermione Granger

Interestingly, Watson wasn’t chasing celebrity status when she auditioned for Harry Potter. In fact, she wasn’t even sure she wanted to make acting her career de ella. What she did know, however, was that she was destined to portray Hermione. A voracious reader and serious-minded child, she felt a strong synergy with the witch and felt she was the perfect person to bring the character to life.
