Emma Watson, the actor and activist who began her career after being picked to play Hermoine Granger out of a line-up at her school gym spoke about what that moment did to her. In a recent interview with British Vogue, Emma stated that her journey wasn't smooth and she felt guilty about not enjoying her career as much as someone else would have.
She also went on to talk about how she dealt with it at such a young age, all of 9-years-old. Emma said that it was her family that kept her grounded when things got too big for her to deal with, especially the fame of the Harry Potter franchise.
Part of what’s helped me find peace is there were moments when it got so big where I almost had vertigo and felt it got so big that I felt l disconnected, and part of the peace within myself has been is remembering my identity. I am someone’s daughter. I am my mother’s daughter, I am my father’s daughter, I am a sister. I belong to a family. I come from a place, I have roots.
