Emma Watson Biography

She continued to work outside of the Harry Potter films, first lending her voice to The Tale of Despereaux and appearing in the television adaptation of the novel Ballet Shoes. Since then, she has taken on starring roles in The Perks of Being a Wallflower and The Bling Ring, made a brief appearance as an “exaggerated” version of herself in This Is the End, and portrayed the title character’s adopted daughter in Noah.

 

 

Watson was born in Paris, France, the daughter of English lawyers Jacqueline Luesby and Chris Watson. Watson lived in Paris until the age of five. Her parents separated when she was young; following their divorce, Watson moved back to England to live with her mother in Oxfordshire while spending weekends at her father’s house in London. She has stated that she speaks some French, though “not as well” as she used to. After moving to Oxford with her mother and brother, she attended the Dragon School in Oxford, remaining there until 2003.

 

From the age of six, she wanted to become an actress, and trained at the Oxford branch of Stagecoach Theatre Arts.

By the age of ten, Watson had performed in various Stagecoach productions and school plays, including Arthur: The Young Years and The Happy Prince, but she had never acted professionally before the Harry Potter series.

 

The release of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in 2001 was Watson’s debut screen performance. The film broke records for opening-day sales and opening-weekend takings and was the highest-grossing film of 2001.

Watson was nominated for five awards for her performance in Philosopher’s Stone, winning the Young Artist Award for Leading Young Actress.

A year later, Watson again starred as Hermione in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, the second instalment of the series. In 2004, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was released. Watson was appreciative of the more assertive role Hermione played, calling her character “charismatic” and “a fantastic role to play”.

Watson’s personal performance won her two Otto Awards and the Child Performance of the Year award from Total Film. The fifth film in the Harry Potter franchise, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, was released in 2007. A huge financial success, the film set a record worldwide opening-weekend gross of $332.7 million. Watson won the inaugural National Movie Award for Best Female Performance. As the fame of the actress and the series continued, Watson and fellow Harry Potter co-stars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint left imprints of their hands, feet and wands in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood on 9 July 2007.

 

Watson’s first non-Potter role was the 2007 BBC film Ballet Shoes, an adaptation of the novel of the same title by Noel Streatfeild.

In May 2010, Watson was reported to be in talks to star in a film adaptation of The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Filming began in summer 2011 and the film was released in September 2012.

Alejandro Amenábarwrote and will direct the film, which will be released in 2015.

In October 2013, Watson was chosen as the Woman of the Year by British GQ.  That same month she was one of two British actors to land atop a readers’ poll of the sexiest movie stars of 2013, beating Scarlett Johansson and Jennifer Lawrence for the actresses’ title in an online poll of more than 50,000 film fans. Benedict Cumberbatch took the men’s vote.

 

In February 2016, Watson announced she was taking a year-long break from acting. She planned to spend the time on her “personal development” and her women’s rights work.

2005, Watson began her modelling career with a photo shoot for Teen Vogue and was the youngest star to grace its cover.

Watson was awarded Best British Style at the 2014 British Fashion Awards. The competition included David Beckham, Amal Clooney and Keira Knightley.

 

On 25 May 2014, she graduated from Brown University with a bachelor’s degree in English literature. In 2013, she became certified to teach yoga and meditation. As part of this certification, she attended a week-long meditation course at a Canadian facility, in which residents are not allowed to speak, in order “to figure out how to be at home with myself.
