I really miss Harry Potter sometimes. On my sad days, I’ll pop in the DVD and get pulled into the wizarding world to hang out with Harry, Ron, and most importantly, Hermione. Turns out that I’m not alone in my admiration for the girl hero of the series.
A survey of one thousand British students found that Hermione Granger was their number one movie role model – and we’re not just talking the Harry Potter movies here. Nearly 1 out of every 5 students picked Hermione for the top honor. We think that’s an A+ for Miss Granger and a trillion points to Gryffindor (like I said guys, I miss Harry Potter a lot).
So, what makes a good movie role model? I think of one as a character who I can look up to and admire, but also someone that feels relatable and that I would love to have as a friend. What’s REALLY awesome though is when a character that you love is also played by someone just as fabulous. Emma Watson and her Harry Potter character Hermione Granger are a perfect example of that two-for-one girl power goodness.
The survey got us thinking not only about what we love about Hermione, but what we love about Emma too. Here’s how we feel about these two amazing ladies:
