Granger Geeks (Emma/Hermione): "A giant! A giant in the forest! And we're supposed to give him English lessons!"
Brunette, bushy-haired and formerly bucktoothed, Hermione was at first a bossy know-it-all who irritated Ron and Harry tremendously, that is until a shared traumatic experience with a troll. After that, she became an appreciated and vital part of "the trio". Though often referred to as "the brain" of the outfit, she is also "the glue" that holds the three of them together (especially when Ron and Harry fight)
Hermione, an only child, was born to muggle parents who happened to be both dentists, oblivious to the excistence of the wizarding world until the arrival of her letter from Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry where she was later sorted into Gryffindor. But her muggle upbringing did not hinder her from being the top of her class, knowing charms above her level, and casting jinxes that even highly trained witches can't counter.
As the best student Hogwarts has seen for many a year, she can be uptight about rules and school work, she often chastised Harry and Ron's constant and often careless rule-breaking. But although she has "loosened up" a great deal in recent years, she has kept a gooin thd head on her shoulders. Now, she doesn't hessitate to "bend" a few rules if she knows it's necessary for a good cause. She has also developed a social conscience. During her fourth year she makes great humanitarian efforts towards house elf liberation.
The years have been kind to her as well. Though often at times dismissed by Ron and Harry as "one of the boys" by her fourth year, she has proven that she is indeed a pretty GIRL, catching the attention of famous international Quidditch superstar, Triwizard champion and hero of the Quidditch World Cup, Viktor Krum, Cormac McLaggen. And her future husband, Ron Weasley who she would have two children with, Rose and Hugo.
~ Hermione is the oldest of the trio, as she was 12 when she first came to Hogwarts
~ Hermione's last name was originally "Puckle", a word used to describe a goblin/elf-like creature, but J.K. Rowling changed it saying that "it didn't suit her character".
~ Hermione’s name was taken from Shakespeare’s "A Winter’s Tale", though J.K. Rowling stated that she bears little relation to that Hermione.
~ Hermione is a caricature of a young J.K. Rowling (at roughly age 11)
~ Hermione's worst fear (as shown by her boggart) is failure
~ Hermione's wand is made of vine wood with a dragon heartstring core. Vine is the wood ascribed to Hermione's birth month (September) on the Celtic Calander. She later had a Walnut, 12¾", dragon heartstring
~ Hermione is better than Harry at every subject except Defence Against the Dark Arts and Quidditch.
~ Hermione's Patronus is a "shining silver otter". J.K. Rowling revealed that the Otter is her favourite animal.
~ If Hermione looked in the mirror of Erised she would see herself happy with her friends and Voldemort defeated, though J.K. also said that she might also see herself closely entwined with another person *wink, wink, nudge, nudge*
~ J.K. Rowling has stated that if she needs to tell the readers something, she will usually let Hermione or Dumbledore explain it.
~ If Harry and Hermione were to duel, Hermione would've won prior to Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry would win post Prisoner of Azkaban
~ Hermione is an only child. J.K. considered giving her a sister, but there "wasn't enough time for it". If a sister had've been included in the story, she would've been a muggle.
~ J.K. Rowling also stated that the earliest drafts of Philosopher's Stone had the Potters living on a remote island. Hermione's dad sees an explosion out at sea, sails out and finds their bodies in the ruins of their house.
~ Hermione's family were never really focused on because they are an ordinary muggle family and off no real importance to the story.
~ Hermione was made a prefect in her 5th year
~ Her occupation is Department of Magical Law Enforcement
As the most 'elidgeable Bachelorette' of the series and basically the only girl around tons of available guys, Hermione became known as "the most shippable" HP character. Fans have been known to read and re-read the books numerous times and spot these so-called "Hermione's shippy moments".
Justin Finch-Fletchey : "And you're Hermione Granger, always top in everything"
Terry Boot: "With a mind like yours, you should be in Ravenclaw"
Oliver Wood: "He could have kissed her."
Neville Longbottom: "She's always been really nice, helping him out with work and stuff- "
"Professor" Remus J. Lupin: "You're the cleverest witch of your age I've ever met, Hermione."
Viktor Krum: "He'd never felt the same way about anyone else."
Harry Potter: "But I don't think you're ugly."
Ronald Weasley: (When she kissed him on the cheek) "he seemed to come to himself slightly as they walked back across the Great Hall. He touched the spot on his face where Hermione had kissed him, looking puzzled, as though he was not quite sure what had just happened. He seemed too distracted to notice much around him..."
But the most popular thus far is pairing her with everyone's favorite Blonde, raven-haired and red-head
~*Miss Emma Watson*~
Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson was born April 15, 1990 in Paris, France. She is the daughter of Jacqueline Luesby and Chris Watson, both lawyers. She has one French grandmother, and lived in Paris until the age of five, before she moved with her mother and younger brother Alex to Oxford, England, following her parents' divorce.
Emma's first foray into the world of professional acting came at the tender age of 10, when she made her superb debut in Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone, though her natural ability has been evident since an early age with highly praised performances in several school productions.
Inspite of her inexperience as a professional actor and the fact that it's often said she's "too cute" to play the "supposedly" plain Hermione, Emma portrayed her adorably, making it possible for us all to see a litle of ourselves in her character, and earning rave reviews from critics and fans alike.
Emma has recently starred in Ballet Shoes, as Pauline Fossil, "The eldest sister by two years, rescued from a shipwreck. A talented actress and a great beauty, with an independent, bumptious streak.!
