Emma Watson Makes's 99 Women of 2010 List

Actress Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) has been named one of's 99 Women of 2010, coming in at number 55 on the list.  An article on notes that Miss Watson was one of two teens on the list, the other being actress Kristin Stewart ("Twilight").'s profile of the young actress relates, in part:

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. 
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.

Congrats to Emma! I do hope we see her in some other movies here and there…. she is a wonderful actress. If not in movies, then see her around for fashion of course.

GO EMMA!!!!! She’s gorgeous! I can’t wait to see what she does in the future after she finishes up school! She deserves a break after acting non-stop for 10 years of her life, but I"m sure she will pursue other projects soon. The HP films still aren’t finished yet.

Incidently, I applaud her for her desire to pursue higher education, rather than to cast it aside to act. That aside, I think she is fun to watch and hope that she will continue her acting career in the future!

Kristen Stewart isn’t even in the same league as Emma, no matter what her position on this particular list.

Would you want to act again if you had enough money for you children, your grandchildren, etc. to never have to worry about anything? I know I wouldn’t. I’d go to school and live my life how I always dreamed.

I think that Emma is a very good actress, who is amazingly talented and pretty. It is a lot of fun to watch her mature through the movies. She is a much better role model than “Hannah Montana”. Kudos for Emma for going to college and getting an education!
