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."

that is awesome that they keep in contact with her. I am happy to see that Emma appreciates Rowling for being an amazing writer and not just someone who created a story which was turned into a successful movie franchise.

It’s awesome that Emma respects and admires Jo so much. Although I think Dan is the closest to JKR, amongst the cast.

And if you read that interview carefully, it seems that it was conducted in January 2008. (driving licence)
It´s always amazing how long these things are embargoed before they are published.
