The actress and feminist activist was born on April 15, 1990 in Paris, though she was raised in the United Kingdom.  She started her career in 2001’s “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.” She was only a participant in her school plays before she was picked. She had taken acting classes at the Stagecoach Theatre Arts school at Oxford.

J.K. Rowling took her  immediately after seeing her screen test. The actress has gone to feature in “The Chamber of Secrets” (2002), “The Prisoner of Azkaban” (2004), “The Goblet of Fire” (2005). Watson finally made her movie debut in the BBC adaptation of the 1936 novel “Ballet Shoes.” Then came 2009, the magical year for Watson who featured in”The Half Blood Prince” and she also became the new face of Burberry. The last Potter film, “Deathly Hallows Part II”  was premiered in 2011.

She has featured in many movies, became a style icon and pictured on some of the best fashion magazines, and starred in many commercials.

She was named the UN Women Goodwill Ambassador in 2014.
