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

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.”

Although I think Dan is the closest to JKR, amongst the cast.Avatar ImageSammeh says: Cute Interview!!Avatar ImageFonty says: 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.

She's on the top of the "who I want to meet before I die" list.Avatar Imagecghambright says: 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. :DAvatar Imagephoenix_girl93 says: thats sweet! she is so lucky to have an awsome friend/ role model always there 4 her....

Avatar ImageOldMrToad says: I like... OMTAvatar ImageSproutMdme says: 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! Avatar ImageWitchlover says: that is so sweet!
