Emma Watson is possibly one of the most beloved and admired actors of her generation. Indeed, she was even an integral part of many childhoods though her role as Hermione in the Harry Potter movies from 2001 to 2011. But she also turned out to be more than a Hollywood starlet; as she grew up, in fact, she threw herself into important campaign work for women’s rights. Yet even though, thanks to the media, we know virtually her every move, there’s still some tidbits about Watson that even avid fans may struggle to recall. Take these 20, for example…

It’s fair to say that the last three Harry Potter movies could potentially have been very different indeed. Why? Well, after Order of the Phoenix, Watson considered quitting her role as Hermione Granger simply because life on the set was so difficult and regimented. “I get told what time I can eat, when I have time to go to the bathroom,” she told Entertainment Weekly in 2010. “Every single second of my day is not in my power.” Thankfully, however, she stuck with it.
