Producer Gary Ross praised Harry Potter actress Emma Watson in a recent Sudbury Star TTOD article: ‘I think she is the most talented young actress of her generation. I think of everybody coming out of the Harry Potter movies, with all due respect to them, she’s the one you go, ‘Oh my god, this is a classic movie star and will have a very, very long career.’
She has a Kate Hepburn grace or Grace Kelly countenance, in terms of her style and bearing and how articulate she is, and at the same time she is a hell of a good actress.
She’s somebody who has complete control over what she’s doing and amazing facility. The girl’s 18 years old. You’re seeing someone who’s going to be an enormous movie star. You’re seeing someone who just brings so much craft and dignity in what she does and approaches it. Look at her contemporaries..
..and look at how this girl is handling both her career and her attitude toward her craft, and how in control of her craft she is. I’ve worked with a lot of actors and can make complex adjustments on a dime. She has tremendous control.
This is a very sophisticated actress already.’ Photo: Fame. Thx Lauren!
