To movie fans, Emma Watson will always be Hermione Granger. They can get a look at her in this role via our latest round of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows photos.
But the actress feels just at home on the college campus of Brown University as she does on the big screen, a fact she goes into detail about in this month's Marie Claire. Excerpts, and pictures, from the interview are below.
On life at Brown: Brown has a real sense of community, and people are very protective of me. They really look out for me; they want me to feel like I’m part of it. I threw my 20th birthday party at Brown, and I didn’t even have to say to anyone not to put pictures on Facebook. Not a single picture went up. That was when I knew I’d found a solid group of friends, and I felt like I belonged.On portraying Hermione: I felt like I knew exactly who she was. Like me, she’s very loyal and determined, she’s very intelligent, and she has a lot of guy friends, as I do. Her eagerness to please and to have the right answer is definitely like me. I’m a perfectionist, so my bossiness definitely comes out.
