Emma Watson — Crush of the Day
Itâs time to stop calling her Hermione and start calling her by her name â Emma Watson! The âHarry Potterâ actress is all growns up, and sheâs coming into her own away from her wizard friends with a number of interesting post-âPotterâ movie roles.
This week, todayâs âcrushâ stars in writer-director Stephen Chboskyâs long-awaited film version of his popular novel âThe Perks of Being a Wallflower.â The British actress plays Sam in the movie, co-starring Logan Lerman and previous Crush of the Day Nina Dobrev.
Twenty-two-year-old Watson was born in Paris but relocated to Oxford at an early age. She co-starred in the first âHarry Potterâ flick in 2001 and has had no trouble finding gigs since the popular series ended. She has at least four films slated to open over the next few years, including Darren Aronofskyâs upcoming âNoahâ epic.
Yes itâs true, Watson will always be associated with the smartest young with of them all, Hermoine Granger, but sheâs working hard not be tied to that role for the rest of her life. We applaud this hot young thingâs talent and ambition.
