Today marks 38 years ago the smartest and greatest witch of all time was born. Named Hermione Jean Granger, she would soon conquer Hogwarts with her brains and Gryffindor’s courage. A role model to each one of us, an inspirational character that slowly won over our hearts, we thank J.K. Rowling for bringing this character into our lives and Emma Watson for portraying Hermione for 11 years. Happy birthday, Hermione!

Our latest (and likely final) old photoshoot additions are done! After months of trying to find/organize those files, they have been added to our photo gallery in all their glory. Our next planned updates will probably be related to Emma’s films, as we’ve noticed there are a few images and screen captures missing.

We’re still at it! Our gallery has been updated with photoshoot images from 2010, 2011 and 2012. We didn’t have as many missing as on the previous years, but we still added 100+ pics. The pixie cut phase, guys! Do you remember the reactions when we got the first look of Emma at the Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows: Part 1 premiere and saw that haircut for the first time? Ah, the memories… It was lovely going back and looking at all those sessions again, and we hope you enjoy it too!

Hello hello! Emma’s latest film, The Circle, is available on DVD, Blu-Ray and On Demand as of today! You can buy it on various online stores, such as Amazon, iTunes, Best Buy and many more. After a quick research, we learned that the Blu-Ray copy includes a few special features about the making of the film – we have no idea whether Emma is featured on those or not. We’ll let you know when we find out!

Our gallery has been updated with high quality screen captures from the film.

Today is Harry Potter’s Birthday! It has been known as the International Harry Potter Day, and fans are celebrating all over the world. It also happens to be JK Rowling’s Birthday, and we hope she is having a beautiful one wherever she is! For those of you who don’t know or can’t remember, Harry’s date of birth was a very important detail in the book/film series, mostly because of a prophecy by Sybill Trelawney, which stated that a boy who could defeat Lord Voldemort would soon be born.

“The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches… born to those who have thrice defied him, born as the seventh month dies… and the Dark Lord will mark him as his equal, but he will have power the Dark Lord knows not… and either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives… the one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord will be born as the seventh month dies….”

That, of course, explains why Lord Voldemort spent so much of his increasingly low enegergy after The Chosen One over the course of 7 books and 8 films. Join us in our celebration on Twitter using the hashtag #PotterDay!

And our massive gallery update continues! We have now added missing photos from various photo sessions of Emma in 2007, 2008 and 2009. We have also stumbled upon a conundrum, and we’d love to hear your take on this: We have several photoshoots for which Emma posed while dressed as Hermione Granger, that were used during the promotion of the Harry Potter films by different magazines. They are currently in the “Photoshoots & Portraits” category, and we’ve started to wonder if it wouldn’t make more sense to move them to their respective films instead. Here are some examples: 01, 02, 03. What’s your opinion? Do we move them? Do we leave them where they are? We can’t decide what makes more sense, so please let us know what you think!

Hello Emma fans! As you know, Emma has her own book club named “Our Shared Shelf” which you can join if you happen to have a goodsread account. She most recently interviewed Margaret Atwood, the author of The Handmaid’s Tale, which has been recently turned into a television show, not to mention it was Emma’s pick for May/June! Entertainment Weekly teamed up with Emma for this interview, and you can read the interview bellow! In our gallery you will also find scans from the issue.

Many celebrities have book clubs, but none share the clout of Emma Watson’s “Our Shared Shelf,” which has picked up nearly 200,000 members since it launched on Goodreads in 2016. As Watson wrote when she made The Handmaid’s Tale her May/June selection, “It is a book that has never stopped fascinating readers because it articulates so vividly what it feels like for a woman to lose power over her own body.” Thanks to the recent Hulu series, Atwood’s 1985 dystopian novel has again soared to the top of the best-seller lists. Watson called up Atwood to discuss.

Watson: You were living in West Berlin when you wrote The Handmaid’s Tale in 1984; it was before the wall came down. Was being in a divided city a big influence on the novel or had you been thinking about it before you arrived in Berlin? I’d love to know how the novel came about.

Atwood: I had been thinking about it before I’d arrived, and at that time — when I was in West Berlin—I also visited Czechoslovakia and East Germany and Poland. They weren’t revelations, because being as old as I am I knew about life behind the Iron Curtain, but it was very interesting to be right inside, to sense the atmosphere. East Germany was the most repressed, Czechoslovakia the second, and Poland was relatively wide open, which explains why Poland was where the Cold War wall first cracked. So it was very interesting to be there, but it wasn’t the primary inspiration.

Watson: What was the inspiration, if you don’t mind me asking?

Atwood: There were three inspirations. First, what right wing people were already saying in 1980. They were saying the kinds of things they’re now doing, but at that time they didn’t have the power to do them. I believe that people who say those kinds of things will do those things if and when they get power: They’re not just funning around. So that was one of the inspirations. If you’re going to make women go back into the home, how are you going to do that? If America were to become a totalitarian state, what would that state look like? What would its aims be? What sort of excuse would it use for its atrocities? Because they all have an excuse of some kind. It would not be Communism in the United States; it would have undoubtedly been some sort of religious ideology—which it now is. By the way, that’s not an “anti religion” statement. Recently, someone said, “Religion doesn’t radicalize people, people radicalize religion.” So you can use any religion as an excuse for being repressive, and you can use any religion as an excuse for resisting repression; it works both ways, as it does in the book. So that was one set of inspirations.

The second inspiration was historical. The 17th-century foundation of America was not, “Let’s have a democracy.” It was “Let’s have a theocracy,” which was what they established in the New England states, such as Massachusetts. Harvard­—in and around which the novel is set —began as a theological seminary in the 17th century, and the Puritans excluded anybody who didn’t believe in their theology.

The third inspiration was simply my reading of speculative fiction and sci-fi, especially that of the ’30’s, ’40’s, and ’50’s, and my desire to give the form a try. Most of the ones I’d read had been written by men and had male protagonists, and I wanted to flip that and see what such a thing would look like if it were told from the point of view of a female narrator. It’s not that those earlier books didn’t have women in them, and not that women didn’t play important parts; it’s that they were not the narrators.

The 5th Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, was released 10 years ago today! This was also the 5th film of Emma’s career, and it was followed by Ballet Shoes, her first acting job outside of the wizarding world. Suffice it to say, 2007 was a big year for her!

As you probably remember, in the 4th film Harry Potter comes face to face with Lord Voldemort. As a consequence, he is absolutely certain of his return, but the Ministry of Magic does everything within its power to keep people from believing his claims. In order to keep the rumors from getting out of hand, they send an employee of their own to teach in Hogwarts, and so we are introduced to the glorious Dolores Umbridge, one of the most despised characters in the series. She becomes the new Professor of Defence Against the Dark Arts, and decides to remove any practical training from from the program, leaving the students with nothing but theory. Displeased with this turn of events, Hermione and Ron convince Harry to teach his own classes for their select group of friends, to make sure they’d be able to defend themselves should they ever need to. They called themselves Dumbledore’s Army.
