In the first Harry Potter films, if you watch carefully, in some scenes you can see me mouthing Harry and Ron’s lines, as well as my own! Because that’s just what I was like, I was… I was crazy. - Emma Watson
Ignoring fame was my rebellion, in a funny way. I was insistent on being normal and doing normal things. It probably wasn’t advisable to go to college in America and room with a complete stranger. And it probably wasn’t wise to share a bathroom with eight other people in a coed dorm. Looking back, that was crazy.
‘I look back at all the work I’ve done over the last 14 years and many things come to mind. Most importantly, how bad my hair was in the first ‘Harry Potter’ film. The cool thing is… you’ve supported me in all my awkwardness and allowed me to grow into the kind of actress and kind of person I hope to be. So thank you for that very much. Becoming yourself is really hard and confusing, and it’s a process. I was the girl in the front of the class who was the first person to put her hand up. It’s often not cool to be the person who puts herself out there, but I found that ultimately, if you truly pour your heart into what you believe in, amazing things can and will happen.’ - Emma Watson, on winning the Trailblazer Award at the MTV Movie Awards (April 14)

How keen are you to re-brand your image, so to speak, because people do think of Harry Potter when they hear your name. Is that something that’s in your mind? (x)
