Who is Emma Watson?
Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson was born in Paris, France to parents, Jacqueline Luesby and Chris Watson. At the age of five, Emma's parents divorced and she then moved to Oxfordshire, England with her mother and younger brother, Alexander. Since the divorce, Emma's extended family has grown as her parents both have new partners. Her father has a son named Toby, and identical twin daughters, Nina and Lucy, and her mother's partner has two sons. Emma spent much of her childhood residing in England with her mother and stepfather, younger brother, and two stepbrothers.
From the age of six, Emma knew that she wanted to be an actress and, for a number of years, she trained at the Oxford branch of Stagecoach Theatre Arts, a part-time theatre school where she studied singing, dancing and acting. By the age of ten, she had performed and taken the lead in various Stagecoach productions and school plays, including "Arthur: The Young Years" and "The Happy Prince". In 1999, casting began for Harry Potter à l'école des sorciers (2001), the film adaptation of British author J.K. Rowling's bestselling novel. Casting agents found Emma through her Oxford theatre teacher, and the producers of the film were impressed by her confidence and her natural acting abilities. After eight consistent auditions, producer David Heyman told Emma and fellow applicants, Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, that they had been cast for the roles of the three leads, Hermione Granger, Harry Potter and Ron Weasley. It has even been said that Rowling had Emma as her first choice for Hermione Granger since her first screen test.
The release of Harry Potter à l'école des sorciers (2001) was Emma's cinematic screen debut. The film broke records for opening-day sales and opening-weekend takings and was the highest-grossing film of 2001. Critics praised the film and the performances of the three leading young actors, often singling out Emma in particular. The highly distributed British newspaper, 'The Daily Telegraph', called her performance "admirable" and multimedia news website, 'IGN', stated that she "stole the show". Later, Emma was nominated for five awards for her performance in the film, winning the Young Artist Award for Leading Young Actress in a Feature Film.
Since the release of the first film of the highly successful franchise, Emma has quickly become one of the most talented young actresses in the world. She continued to play the role of Hermione Granger for nearly ten years, in all of the following Harry Potter films: Harry Potter à l'école des sorciers (2001), Harry Potter et la chambre des secrets (2002), Harry Potter et le prisonnier d'Azkaban (2004), Harry Potter et la coupe de feu (2005), Harry Potter et l'ordre du Phénix (2007), Harry Potter et le prince de sang-mêlé (2009), Harry Potter et les reliques de la mort - 1ère partie (2010), and Harry Potter et les reliques de la mort - 2ème partie (2011). In addition, Emma has also began to branch out into other films such as My Week with Marilyn (2011) and The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012). With a successful acting and modeling career under her belt, and a soon-to-be college degree, Emma Watson is a lovely, confident, smart, and talented triple threat that we will be watching on the big screen for many years to come.
Je voulais préciser que j'admire Emma pour son talent et sa personne ce qui veut dire que je donnerais MON AVIS sur ce blog et non l'avis des médias, etc...
