The Evolution of Emma Watson: From “Potter Girl” to UN Ambassador and Social Activist

Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson was born on April 15, 1990 in Paris, France. Daughter of British parents, Jacqueline Luesby and Chris Watson, both lawyers, she moved to Oxfordshire at the age of five. She attended Dragon School and knew from a young age that she wanted to be an actress. At seven, she won a poetry contest, and at ten, she auditioned for the role of Hermione Granger in Harry Potter.

Emma was chosen alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint for the Harry Potter films. She found support in director Chris Columbus, who helped alleviate stress on set. Over the years, she grew alongside her co-stars, including a kiss scene with Rupert Grint she found awkward due to their sibling-like relationship.

In 2009, Watson enrolled at Brown University and continued filming the Harry Potter series. Despite a hectic schedule, she found solace in reading and studying. She later became a fashion icon, promoting ethical fashion and even worked with luxury brands to reduce their environmental impact.

After graduating from Brown University, Emma Watson became a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador and started the HeForShe program to promote gender equality. She spoke out against sexual harassment in the film industry and attended the Golden Globes in support of the Time’s Up movement in 2018. She also learned to embrace being single and find happiness within herself.
