Former Child Stars That Kept It Together And Are Still Famous Today

Emma Watson

Emma Watson had only ever acted in grade school productions when she secured the role of Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film franchise. She played this role in all eight of the Harry Potter movies, which earned her more than $60 million, praise from film critics, and a mass of devoted fans. Watson, along with her Harry Potter co-stars became the most well-known child actors of the 2000s. After the film series wrapped up, Watson refused to be defined by her popular character.

She starred in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, My Week With Marilyn, and This is the End. A whole new generation of fans fell in love with Emma Watson when she starred as Belle in the 2017 live action film version of Beauty and the Beast. Watson is an outspoken advocate and a United Nations Women Goodwill Ambassador. She developed and launched the He For She campaign that calls on men to take an active role in creating a world of gender equality. Watson has grown from a memorable child actress into an important entertainer and advocate for change.
