The British actress Emma Watson is best remembered for her roles in the Harry Potter series of movies as Hermione Granger. The talented actress celebrated her 26th birthday on Apr. 15, 2016 and the media was full of the stories of her birthday celebrations.

E news did an exclusive about her fashion sense and talked about her unique style quotient. ''Today marks Emma Watson's 26th birthday, and while we cherish her for so many reasons-like her intelligence, her dedication to feminism and her superb acting talents-we want to take a moment to highlight something that's also always made her stand out: her supreme sense of style'' reported the article.

Times of India reported in Feb. 2016 that this talented actress is planning to take a break from acting. ''Actress Emma Watson is taking a year's hiatus from acting. The UN goodwill ambassador, known for her HeForShe initiative, says she wants to read books and study about feminism, a topic that she has been vocal about, reports aceshowbiz.com'' the report said.

"I'm taking a year away from acting to focus on two things, really. My own personal development is one," stated Watson. "My own personal task is to read one book a week, and also to read a book a month as part of my book club. I'm doing a huge amount of reading and study just on my own," she added further. She also wants to "listen to as many different women in the world'' as she can. "That's something that I've been doing on my own, through the UN, the HeForShe campaign, and my work generally," she further clarified.

Her upcoming movie ''Beauty and the Beast'' which will be released on Mar. 17, 2017 is in post-production now. Hence she will get ample time to do her research on feminism and create some possible changes in the plight of women using her star power. So what will those developments be? Considering that she is very young, she still has a long way to go to make a mark in the world and bring some positive changes in the lives of women specially living in third world and backward countries.
