“I’ve been very fulfilled by my studies. English has helped me think in an analytical way. It’s helped me see the world from new perspectives. Diving into these stories and characters has given richness to my own life. And now, when I read scripts or look at stories, I have these references for a larger understanding of humanity. I’m sure it will make my job as an actress more interesting.”

“Oh God, I would never give Emma any kind of advice – she doesn’t need any! She is great, very strong. When I played Fleur in the final two films five years later, she, Daniel and Rupert had become wonderful adults – it was extraordinary to see. Emma is a national treasure, and they are all so smart. Growing up in that situation could have affected them badly but they managed to stay so focused and so humble, which amazes me.” – Clémence Poésy on Emma Watson

I do things in my own way, but I’ve never felt any need to rebel. To be honest, I’ve always had far too much freedom. I had a job when I was 10. I started living on my own when I was 17 or 18. I’ve earned my own money; I’ve traveled the world. What would I rebel against? I’ve had so much freedom, sometimes it was hard. My parents wanted to protect me, but they had no idea how to. I had to learn as I went and make my own mistakes.
