Emma Watson didnt know Harry Potter co-stars Maggie Smith, Gary OldmanJanuary 21st, 2009 - 2:44 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jan 21 (ANI): Emma Watson had no idea who Dame Maggie Smith and Gary Oldman were before she started working with them on the Harry Potter movies.
The British star - who shot to fame playing Hermione Granger, one of three starring roles in the popular film franchise - grew up in an academic family and barely watched movies.
And the 18-year-old insists she wasn”t starstruck when she first set foot on the Potter set - because she didn”t recognize most of her distinguished co-stars.
I didnt go to acting school so I didnt know thats what I wanted to be, reveals Emma, who left boarding school in Oxford last summer, the Daily Express quoted her, as saying.
I came from a background of lawyers and academics and we just didnt watch films in our household.
I had no idea who Maggie Smith or Gary Oldman or any of these people were, she added. (ANI)
