A biography of the actress behind the role of Hermione Granger
A detailed insight into Emma Watson's career, the highs and lows of being a child star, and how she is moving on from Harry Potter balancing the world of fashion with her academic studies. Emma shot to fame at just 10 years old, when she took the role of Hermione Granger in the first of the Harry Potter movies in 2001. Since then she has become one of the richest actors in the movie industry, a successful model, and a college student. With the last of the Potter movies due for release in July 2011, Emma will finally shed the geeky image of her on screen character and become the "normal teenager" she so desires to be. But as the face of British fashion label Burberry and nominated for Favorite Movie Star Under 25 at this year’s People's Choice Awards, is "normal" really obtainable for Emma?
