'''Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson''' (born April 15, 1990) is a British actress, born in France, best known for playing Hermione Granger in the ''Film/HarryPotter'' movies. She is following up the ''Potter'' series with a small role in ''Film/MyWeekWithMarilyn'', the Princess Pea in ''WesternAnimation/TheTaleOfDespereaux'' and the female lead in ''Literature/ThePerksOfBeingAWallflower''. She acted in Creator/SofiaCoppola's ''Film/TheBlingRing'' and in Creator/DarrenAronofsky's 2014 Biblical epic film, ''Film/{{Noah}}''. She was tapped to play Beauty in a Creator/GuillermoDelToro version of ''Literature/BeautyAndTheBeast''. The project fell through and she has now been cast instead as Belle in an upcoming live-action adaptation of Disney's ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast''.

As of July 2014, she is also a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women, campaigning for womens' rights and gender equality.

Not to be confused with Creator/EmilyWatson or Creator/EmmaThompson, both of whom are old enough to be her mother (but aren't, just so we're clear).

!!'''Tropes that apply to this actor include:'''
* CharacterTics: Her infamous "eyebrow acting".
* CoveredInGunge: She and Creator/RupertGrint had this happen to them (she got it worse) live on American TV.
* FascinatingEyebrow: Her eyebrows can act, even ''[[LargeHam over-act]]'', by themselves.
* ImportantHaircut: As soon as the ''Harry Potter'' films wrapped, she cut her hair into a pixie (as she had to keep it long for the films). She kept it short for ''The Perks of Being A Wallflower'' and wore wigs and extensions for ''Noah'' and ''The Bling Ring'' before ultimately growing it long again.
* KindheartedCatLover: Owns two cats.
* LargeHam: At first, but she's gotten more nuanced by now.
