A role model for the youth film fans!

The brainy student picked up 19 per cent of the votes wherein she been voted as the best big-screen role model in a poll of young film fans as reported Daily Star online. This followed Charlie Bucket (16 per cent), who wins a golden ticket to Willy Wonka's chocolate factory, followed by another Roald Dahl creation, Matilda Wormwood (15 per cent). Yes the brainy student is none other than "Emma Watson", better known as "Hermione Granger" was Harry Potter's best friend in the movie series of "Harry Potter" which have been transformed into film from a series of seven fantasy novels written by the British author J. K. Rowling. It's a series of many genres, including fantasy and coming of age with elements of mystery, thriller, adventure, and romance, it has many cultural meanings and references which have been shown wonderfully in the movies. "Hermione Granger" was one of the protagonist's in the "Harry Potter" movie series apart the other two being "Harry Potter and Ron Weasley" acted by "Daniel Radcliffe" and "Rupert Grint".

"Hermione Granger" in the movie, was a student of "Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry", the finest school of wizardry shortened as Hogwarts. It is a fictional British school of magic for students aged eleven to eighteen, and is the primary setting for the first six books in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. To speak more about Hermione Granger's character, she was a Muggle-born Gryffindor student, and the best friend of Harry Potter and Ron Weasley who was born on 19 September 1979. She was shown to be an overachiever who excels academically, and is described by Rowling as a "very logical, upright and good" character. Rowling adds that Hermione's parents, two Muggle dentists, are a bit bemused by their odd daughter but very proud of her all the same and that they are well aware of the wizarding world and have visited Diagon Alley with her.

"Rowling" claims the character of "Hermione" carries several autobiographical influences. She added: "I did not set out to make "Hermione" like me but she is...she is an exaggeration of how I was when I was younger." saying which she recalled being called a "little know-it-all" in her youth.

Moreover, she states that not unlike herself, "there is a lot of insecurity and a great fear of failure" beneath "Hermione". Finally, according to "Rowling", next to "Albus Dumbledore", "Hermione" is the perfect expository character; because of her comprehensive knowledge, she can always be used as a plot dump to explain the Harry Potter universe. Rowling also claims that her feminist conscience is saved by Hermione, "who's the brightest character" and is a "very strong female character".

"Hermione Granger" had her last appearance in "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" which was released on November 17, 2010 and was directed David Yates.

Yes, it is indeed having a worth enough reason which justifies the fame factor of this wonderful young actress "Emma Watson" as "Hermione Granger" resulting to be proud moment for her!

As rightly told by Sam Wainstein from children's charity Filmclub, who carried out the poll that "Films can have a powerful influence on the way children behave. We hope our list will help parents when it comes to choosing films."
