Emma is #55 of the AskMen.com Top 99 Women of 2010!
In the results of a poll recently conducted by AskMen.com, Emma took spot #55 in the Top 99 Women of 2010.
When casting began for the film adaptation of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone about 10 years ago, Emma Watson was only nine years old and studying at the Oxford branch of Stagecoach Theatre Arts. Thanks to her theater teacher, who directed casting agents to the budding actress, eight auditions later Emma Watson, along with her then future castmates Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, landed the leading roles that would soon change the course of their lives.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone went on to make $975 million worldwide, en route to becoming one of the most lucrative movies of all time. Watson reclaimed her role as bookworm Hermione for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002), Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004), Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005), Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007), and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, which came out in July 2009. Prior to the opening of The Half-Blood Prince, the Potter flicks had already taken in over $4.5 billion worth of ticket sales. Watson recently wrapped up filming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I (out in 2010) and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II (out in 2011).
Where will you see her post-Potter? University, no less. "Until something comes along that I feel as strongly about as I did Hermione -- like, I felt that it was life or death -- I don't want to act again," says the young actress. Watson won't be completely out of the limelight any time soon, and not just because Harry Potter films will be in theaters until 2011. Emma stars in Burberry's Autumn/Winter 2009 campaign, shot by none other than world renowned photographer Mario Testino.

Yahoo! Movies UK recently spoke with Daniel Radcliffe and Emma during a visit to the Deathly Hallows set! The complete set report will come out when we inch closer to the films' release, but a sneak peek is available online. Thanks to Emma-Watson.net for the tip!
Much of the story in Deathly Hallows occurs away from Hogwarts, in what Dan calls a "road movie", and that along with the darker tone will give this movie a much different feel than. Emma says, "It's challenging in every way - physically, emotionally. They’re away from home. They’re isolated, they don’t have any news. They don’t know what they’re doing. They’re pulling at shreds. Dumbledore had hardly left them anything to go on."
The 'road movie' aspect meant a lot of outdoor sets and Emma enjoyed the change, "It was so nice to be outside, in the forest and out of the studio - running about. It was so much fun. Because it’s such an emotional, heavy film, it was nice to get out and do some action stuff. They were very fun scenes to film. Being out of Hogwarts just makes it really different. It just gives the audience a whole different experience. I’m so excited to see it together."
Jessie Cave [Lavendar Brown] mentions Emma in an interview for Scholastic's Ink Splot 26 blog. Jessie talked about her experience filming, and what it was like to be the "new girl in town". When asked who she bonded with most, "On set? Definitely Emma. I really got on with Emma really well. I thought she was brilliant."
At the Burberry Fall/Winter 2010 Menswear show yesterday, Alex was in attendance with the other male models from the same campaign that Emma shot for the Spring/Summer Burberry campaign. Alex turned quite a few heads at the event!
Alex is also featured in a video released by Burberry showcasing the new men's line of Burberry Brit. How's this for a proud sister moment? :)
