Emma Watson

Emma Watson has starred as Hermione Granger, devoted friend to both Harry Potter and Ron Weasley, in each of the Harry Potter films. She plays the role for the final time in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.

Watson was heard as the voice of Princess Pea in the 2008 animated adventure The Tale of Despereaux. She also starred opposite Victoria Wood, Richard Griffiths and Emilia Fox in the role of Pauline Fossil in the BBC's television drama Ballet Shoes.

Watson made her professional acting debut in the first Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, winning a Young Artist Award for Best Leading Young Actress for her performance. Watson has also garnered two Critics' Choice Award nominations from the Broadcast Film Critics Association for her work in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

In addition, Watson won two consecutive AOL Awards for Best Supporting Actress, the first for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and another for Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. The readers of Total Film magazine also voted her Best New Performer for her work in the latter. In 2006, Empire, the U.K.'s leading film magazine, honored Watson and her co-stars, Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, with the Outstanding Contribution Award in recognition of their work, collectively, in the Harry Potter films.

Apart from acting, another of Watson's passions is fashion. She worked closely with Fair Trade and organic clothing producer People Tree in helping them create a new teenage fashion line, and fronted the Autumn-Winter 2009 and Summer-Spring 2010 campaigns for Burberry.

Watson is currently in the U.S. studying for a Liberal Arts degree at Brown University.
