Emma Watson Grows Up: How the Young Actress Went from Hermione Granger to Hollywood It Girl

Emma Watson is about to overwhelm Hollywood and beyond. Most famous as Hermione Granger in Harry Potter, the 22-year-old British actress will have major roles in the teen flick The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Darren Aronofsky’s highly anticipated Noah, based on the biblical tale.

As extraordinary as she is, Watson is also normal. Or, at least she tries to be - which is just as likeable. She is the daughter of two lawyers. She gets picked up by her mom at the airport. She tweets excited little comments on everything from Noah to the weather. “The snow is pretty but am I going to be able to get out tonight?!” she tweeted on December 10th.
