Personal life

She has a younger brother, Alex, who was born in 1993. Outside of acting, she enjoys hockey, tennis,singing and rounders. She is not related to actress Emily Watson.

However, she had no professional acting experience prior to her being cast as Hermione.

Her performance in The Prisoner of Azkaban was also well-received, but had an additional effect – it propelled her to #8 on the Lycos Top 50, and she is the only "Potter Star" to have appeared on that list.
