The Marvelous Miss Watson

Newsweek has two articles up (here and here) with pictures of Order of the Phoenix and some discussion with the trio.  Apparently Emma Watson, who recently kicked ass on the British equivalent of the SAT, is thinking of turning in her wand for movies 6 and 7. 

While the idea of someone else playing Hermione does bum me out, I really enjoyed reading her talking about it.  Such an endearing young woman she's become--smart, funny, beautiful--very refreshing amidst the sea of Hollywood party girls.  In a kind of big-sisterly way, it's been a joy watching her grow up.
