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.

she will definately go down in history with this role. She is amazing and cant be topped. She is number one in my book. Kristen Stewart is a sloppy broad with no natural ability or beauty. She is the anti-emma and should not be on that list. If they had asked this man kristen wouldnt come close to making the cut and emma would be at the top

What an amazingly beautiful, talented and intelligent young lady she has become. And she seems to have her priorities in proper order. Go Emma!!

Wow, Hermione was a matter of “life or death” for Emma. Sounds like she is kind of tired of acting after finishing up the series, at least for a while.

I do hope we get to see her in some other things too. I liked Ballet Shoes.
