Emma Watson is best known for her role as Hermoine Granger from the Harry Potter series. More recently she has done modeling work for some of the biggest brands in the world. Emma, now 19, regularly appears near the top of 'world's sexiest' and 'most beautiful' polls.

Emma Watson was born in Paris, France, daughter of Jacqueline Luesby and Chris Watson, English lawyer. Watson has one French grandmother and lived in Paris until the age of five, before she moved with her mother and younger brother, Alex, to Oxfordshire, England, following her parents' divorce.

From the age of six, Watson expressed a desire to become an actress. At the age of 7 Emma won 1st prize in a school poetry recital: The Daisy Pratt poetry competition. Emma was just 9 years old when casting agents traveled to many different schools in England looking for talented children to audition for the parts of Harry, Ron and Hermione in the upcoming Harry Potter movies. Emma recalls that she auditioned for the part as Hermione because her friends did and she thought it would “be a laugh.” Her drama teacher at the time recommended Emma to the casting agents who obviously saw the same potential in her and was short listed for the role after several auditions. After being paired with several different “Ron’s” and several different “Harry’s”, Emma was called into the producers office alongside Rupert Grint who were both told at the same time that they had won the parts as Hermione and Ron.

At the age of 10, Emma began filming the her first role as Hermione Granger in: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone – the first installment of the Harry Potter movies taken from the hugely popular books written by J.K Rowling. Even though Ms Rowling had not yet met Emma, she had said that after a chat on the phone with her she knew there and then that she was absolutely perfect for the role as the books main female character Hermione Granger.

Emma worked on the Harry Potter movies until the age of 20, when the eighth and final Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was completed.

Emma more than lives up to her Hermione reputation after passing all 10 of her GCSE exams in the summer of 2006 with 8 A* (the highest grade you can get) and 2 A's. Emma also achieved straight A's in her AS and A Levels. She enrolled at Brown University in the Fall of 2009 to study Liberal Arts.

Post-Harry Potter film projects for Emma include: My Week with Marilyn (2011), The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012) and The Bling Ring (2013).

Emma made the Maxim 2012 Hot 100 List, coming in at number 21.

According to security firm McAfee — which revealed their annual list of riskiest Hollywood personalities to search for online in September 2012 — links related to the Harry Potter actress are far more likely to include malicious malware and viruses than any other celebrity. Jessica Biel ranked second on the list with Eva Mendes coming in third. We hope you made it here safely.
