Emma Watson, a British actress and campaigner, is best known for playing the pudgy, knucklehead baddie Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movie series. When she made the decision to read the Harry Potter books, she had no idea how profoundly it would alter her life.
She used to live a very humble life and was only given this opportunity via pure, stupid luck. Jacqueline Luesby and Chris Watson, both lawyers, gave birth to Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson in Paris, France. She moved to Oxfordshire with her mother and an infant brother when her parents divorced when she was just five years old.
Watson is one of the 100 most powerful individuals in the world, according to Forbes and Vanity Fair, and she is also one of the highest-paid actresses in the world.
Early Life and Education
Her birthplace was Paris. Chris Watson and Jacqueline Luesby are her parents. They are both lawyers. Watson was raised in the nearby town of Maisons-Laffitte. She moved to Oxford in 2003, where she attended the Dragon School, together with their mother and brother. After attending Dragon School, she was accepted to Oxford’s Headington School.
In February 2009, Watson graduated from high school and began working on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Parts 1 and 2. She later made the decision to continue her education at Brown University, which is close to Providence, Rhode Island. From that point on, she went on to get a Bachelor of Arts in English literature.
Personal Life of Emma Watson
In a 2019 debate, Watson asserted that she divides her time between London and New York City. She won’t be transparent about her romantic relationships. She has been seeing American businessman Leo Robinton since 2019.
Watson identified as a spiritual universalist when asked about her religion in 2014. Early in 2016, Watson appointed a visiting associate to work at Oxford University’s Lady Margaret Hall.
She has noted that dealing with the intense fame she had from a young age allowed her to ultimately “live in peace” by holding onto a strong sense of who she was. In 2013, she was certified to teach yoga and meditation. She completed a Canadian institution’s weekly mindfulness program.
Following an audition for a role in the 2001 movie adaptation of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling, Watson started acting professionally in 1999. She was chosen to play Hermione, one of Harry Potter’s closest pals, who is intelligent and sensible. The movie was a commercial success, and Watson returned for the subsequent installments of the Harry Potter series: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002), Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004), Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005), Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007), Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009), Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (2010), and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (2011).
Watson started looking for more serious roles as soon as the Potter movies were over. Her first significant role was as a high school senior who befriends a severely depressed freshman in the drama The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012). She then made appearances in the criminal drama The Bling Ring (2013), the historical suspense film The Colony (also known as Colonia; 2015), and the science fiction suspense film The Circle (2017). These movies only enjoyed modest box office success, but Watson scored another huge hit with the 2017 live-action Disney remake of Beauty and the Beast. She starred as Meg March in Greta Gerwig’s critically acclaimed adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s beloved children’s book Little Women in 2019.
Watson pursued a college degree in the midst of her acting career. She started attending Providence, Rhode Island’s Brown University in 2009. She studied for a year at the University of Oxford while taking breaks as necessary for filming. Watson earned a bachelor’s degree in English literature from Brown in 2014. She was appointed a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador that year. She promoted gender equality and women’s rights. In order to read and debate books by and about women, Watson hosted the online feminist book club Our Shared Shelf from 2016 to 2020.
