Emma Watson on Harry Potter author JK Rowling

Recently actress Emma Watson was interviewed for the Hero Complex blog where she made new remarks about our favorite author, J.K. Rowling, In the piece Emma speaks of her admiration for the Harry Potter author, and says "We talk, we e-mail each other now,” she said, nodding toward her laptop and that morning’s missive from the woman who is arguably the world’s most famous living young-adult author.“I must admit I still feel quite intimidated by her,” Watson said. “Not because she is actually intimidating, but because I admire her so much, and we have all been such mad fans of the books and her and everything.”

Continuing on about how the cast views JKR, it reads:

To hear cast members tell it, Rowling became like one of the wise old ghosts who populate the fictional wizard academy of Hogwarts — she was a fairly common presence but one that who never failed to startle and amaze.That meant more to Watson, perhaps, than anyone else in the cast and crew. The other lead actors spoke about Rowling in casual terms, but Watson could barely tamp down her awe.“I just really want her to like me,.” Watson said, sounding a bit like the insecure overachiever Hermione. “I’m always really keen to telling her how I feel, and maybe it’s a bit much. She is so down to earth and funny and witty....... I definitely see Hermione in her. She’s genuine and brilliant."

Look what JKR has given to the world…who wouldn’t be intimidated by that kind of presence? She’s on the top of the “who I want to meet before I die” list.

That’s so cool! I would love to be that close to JK Rowling! I would be intimidated by her too regardless of how much I saw her. The woman is brilliant! But Emma has nothing to worry about JK Rowling obviously loves her. I read an interview in which JK Rowling mentioned how she told Emma the most about what would happen in the 7th book during their little girl talks. :D

I’m struck by the irony of a brilliant, studious woman who writes a novel including a character based greatly on herself, and then sees and discusses this character with another woman who is like a spitting image of the character she plays and a shadow of the very person who wrote it. If they weren’t both cut from the same cloth, I’ll eat my hat!
