Emma Watson is a British actress who has taken America and the rest of the world by storm. She's an extremely talented and lovely lady who just happens to be amazingly wealthy. The most recent estimates place her total net worth at $80 million. This is far more than most actors, which begs the question. How did she amass such a large amount of assets? She's still a young actress, born in April of 1990 and at the young age of just 28, she's a multimillionaire. Did she really make all this money through her acting career or does she have other income sources? We checked into it and here is what we found out.
Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson is an actress and more
The bright and shining star has already done a lot of things in her life. In addition to her acting career, the Paris born English actress is also an activist and a model. She got her big break when she appeared in the Harry Potter movies from 2001 through 2011. In case you're wondering if she could have possibly have earned the bulk of her tremendous assets through acting, the answer is a definite yes! She brought in $60 million for her work in the Harry Potter films alone. Of course, it helped for the series to become an international sensation. This helped to skyrocket her popularity, and her career in the entertainment business over the decade she dedicated to the series.
Born to professional parents
Emma was born in Paris in 1990, where she lived until the age of 5. Neither of her parents was in the acting business, but both were attorneys and highly educated. They split while Emma was still young, and her mother moved to Oxford, England with her and a brother. While living there, Emma attended the Dragon School. She tried out for the cast of the first Harry Potter movie in 1999. The agents were so taken with her acting abilities that they immediately cast her in the lead female role of Hermoine Granger. She continuously delivered critically acclaimed performances in the role and became well-known throughout the world.
More opportunities after Harry Potter
In addition to her work in the entire Harry Potter series, Emma also appeared in the film "The Tale of thee Desperaux." She was firmly established as a talented actress, but she also found time to model for the famous high-end rand Burberry, and she's also been associated with the People Tree brand. Other films to her credit include "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," "The Bling Ring," "Ballet Shoes," This is the End," "Colonia" and the latest "Beauty and the Beast" movie released in 2017.
Emma's other ventures and recognition
Emma Watson also appeared n the music video "Say You Don't Want It" in 2010. She won the "Best Ensemble in a Feature Film award in 2002 at the Young Artist Awards. In 2007, she won Best Performance by a Female for the National Movie Awards. In 2014, she won the Best British Style Award at the British Fashion Awards. During this year, she also served as a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, which showed us that Emma is an activist that cares about others in the world around her and beyond. In 2017, Emma Watson won the Choice Movie Ship award at the Teen Choice Awards and she was nominated, but not selected for a Best Actress Award at the Saturn Awards in 2018.
A full life and she's just getting started
Emma Watson still has her entire life in front of her, having not yet reached the age of thirty. She's got a net worth of $80 million, and God willing, she has many more decades of acting and living to increase her fame and fortune. She's already done more in her career that many aspiring actors have never achieved. We firmly believe that Emma is a rising star that has not yet achieved her full potential in the entertainment business. She's set for life if she plays her cards right, but we only see her getting better as time goes by. Emma Watson built her amazing $80 million fortune through her talents and skills as an actress. She serves as a source of inspiration for other young actors just getting their careers started. If you have talent, then all you need are a few good breaks.
