Some people might not know that her name is Emma Watson. Some might see her and regard her as Hermione Granger, the lady best friend of Harry Potter. Emma has been playing Hermione Granger for more than a decade and has been known for that role since then. After the last Harry Potter movie, Emma auditioned and took acting roles for movies. People has to accept and move on that Emma Watson is not Hermione Granger and just like every actor, she is entitled to explore her acting options.
Emma as Sam in the movie Perks of being a Wallflower was spectacular new way of looking at Emma. She was able to connect with the character and be “the” character needed in the movie.
