Then: Emma Wat­son was 11 when she got the part as the smart mug­gle Hermione Granger. She earned rave reviews for her per­for­mance and even re­ceived the Young Artist Award for Lead­ing Young Ac­tress.

Did you know that af­ter com­plet­ing the fifth movie, Harry Pot­ter And The Or­der Of The Phoenix, Wat­son wanted to drop out to fo­cus on her stud­ies? Thank­fully, the stu­dio was able to work their pro­duc­tion dates to suit Wat­son’s needs.

“They es­sen­tially moved the Harry Pot­ter film sched­ule around my exam dates, which was amaz­ing. It all worked out,” she said to MTV News in 2016.

Now: Wat­son, 27, grad­u­ated from Brown Uni­ver­sity with a de­gree in English Lit­er­a­ture in 2014.

Most re­cently, she played Belle in the world­wide box-of­fice hit Beauty And The Beast and it is widely re­ported that she will be this year’s high­est-paid ac­tress. Just how much is Wat­son ex­pected to re­ceive for her work in Beauty And The Beast? A whop­ping US$15mil (RM65mil).
