Harry Potter, everything about it is beyond comprehension. Since the movie adaptation of the novels, the popularity of these magical series hit the skies. Not only has it set numerous records on charts worldwide, but won an incredible number of awards and accolades. And the contribution to its excellence has been greatly due to its lead cast.
When Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, and Emma Watson, signed for the movie when they were not even teenagers. No one anticipated the magnitude of success the film would uncover. And soon the three were in the spotlight and on the favorite list of the paparazzi.
In Hollywood land, all actors and actresses are subjected to scrutiny, after they hit the high mark on their career. And they will all agree that it’s all a part and parcel of wanting to be rich and famous. The now 22-year-old was only nine when she was cast in the movie’s first installment.
The fans and the media have been a part of her life since. Earlier this week she was quoted saying to New York Times Style Magazine: “I’m now too famous to go out in public”.
What sets Watson apart from the various younger celebrities is; her British background and the quality to actually be a good role model. She’s never succumbed to the crazy party lifestyle that younger and the naive get dragged into.
And this is essential for today’s parents who’re looking for mature role models for their kids. Harry Potter has been a children’s book and the readers have grown up with the characters in the movie and hence look up to them.
The young starlet who recently completed her third year at college confessed that it was difficult, she was quoted saying; “My first two years at Brown weren’t easy, not because I was bullied or because anyone gave me a particularly hard time, but just because, you know, without the collegiate system . . . and at Brown, everyone does completely different things and very much chooses their own path, which is great, but it’s also much more difficult, too. You’re not with a group of people all the time at one time.”
Watson is now caught in a crazy web of paparazzi and fans. For her a regular visit to a museum is also a nightmare, she shared with The New York Times Style Magazine, “If I went somewhere busy, I wouldn’t last very long. I can’t go to a museum;
I’ll last 10 or 15 minutes in a museum. The problem is that when one person asks for a photograph, then someone sees a flash goes off, then everyone else sorts of… it’s sort of like a domino effect. And then very quickly the situation starts to get out of control to a point where I can’t manage it on my own.”
All the fame and all the glitters of the world of stardom aren’t as pretty as they seem to be. What starts off as the aim of every young actress turns out to be their worst nightmare. And there’s no escaping it, no solution, the only way is to go along with the drill!.
