Before beginning her Masters in creative writing at Oxford University, Emma Watson, who played Hermione Granger in Harry Potter, attended the university’s matriculation ceremony.
Emma Watson, the actress of the Harry Potter series, astounded college students when she arrived at Oxford in a black gown to celebrate beginning her Masters degree.
The 33-year-old actress, who originated the role of Hermione Granger in the immensely popular series, appeared thrilled to be attending the matriculation ceremony, which symbolises students’ official entry to the institution, on Saturday at the city’s Sheldonian Theatre.
Emma avoided drawing attention to herself as she socialised with her future students while wearing a long, black gown with a black ribbon and a white shirt. One student stated he was astonished to see the star, who is one of the most well-known actresses in the nation, when he saw her in the crowded auditorium.
In an interview with the Financial Times in April, Watson revealed her aspirations to pursue a degree in creative writing. It was also revealed that she had started composing poetry and essays on love, friendship, and relationships while the school was under lockdown.
The Sun then provided additional information last month, reporting that the Prada star would study part-time and primarily online. Last month, a source said in a statement:
“The course is for older adults and can be done on a part-time basis, which is perfect for Emma’s schedule. She only has to be on site for four or five days a year because she can do the rest of the course online from home. Because she’s a famous actress, she’ll have a security team looking after her whenever she has classes to go to.”
In the academic year 2011–2012, Emma was an undergraduate at Worcester College in Oxford for one year. At Brown University in Rhode Island, where she earned a degree in English literature and graduated in 2014, she did this.
The actress spoke candidly about her choice to pull away from the spotlight earlier this year, describing how she felt “sad and p**** off” following her meteoric rise to stardom in the Harry Potter series.
When she turned 33 in April, she reflected on the previous year of her life after stepping away from the spotlight. Emma said she had created gin, surfed, started therapy, and started a women’s environmental investment fund during her time away from the world of show business.
In a candid post on Instagram, she said: “I stepped away from my life – I learned to surf (badly), I rode some horses (that went better), I did a lot of therapy (YESS therapy!). “My brother and I figured out how to make a gin using recycled wine grapes!?”
The actress continued: “I felt really sad and really p****d off about a lot of things. I learned more about love and being a woman. It took me three years but I have finally figured out a daily practice and can actually keep it for more than a few days in a row. I burned some things down. I eat green things now!”

Despite the Harry Potter films being watched by millions of people each year since it’s initial release in 2001, fans are still finding more and more details, connections and easter eggs that they have never seen before! We are always on the hunt for these little details that you may have missed and we think we have found one for you WON’T have seen!
In the enchanting Wizarding World and at Hogwarts school of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the golden trio of Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger face many challenges particular in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone when they must face a three headed dog, escape Devil’s Snare, catch winged and defeat a giant chess set!
During this scene Ron Weasley rises to the challenge and executes a move that sends shockwaves of excitement to watches as he sacrifices himself to ensure that Harry and Hermione can win the game and continue to secure the Philosopher’s Stone. Ron displays his courage and his loyalty to his friends showcasing why he was chosen for Gryffindor house BUT did you know that he has already played the chess game before and hence knew how to defeat the evil white queen?
During the scenes at Hogwarts during the festive period we see Harry and Ron playing Wizard Chess in the Great Hall when Hermione comes to watch them. Although in a different style the boy who lived and his best friend are playing wizard chess and if you look closely you might spot this hidden detail we has never noticed before.
From the movie shot bove you can see that Ron Weasley actually commands his queen to demolish Harry’s knight. As fate would have it, this VERY strategy would later reemerge in a momentous turn of events as Ron recreates this exact move when he, Harry and Hermione defeat the giant chessboard! It seems Ron knew EXACTLY what he was doing when he sacrificed himself and he knew this would win them the game!
Ron’s strategic brilliance really did help save the say and without him who knows what would happen if Voldemort had managed to retrieve the Philosopher’s Stone! It brilliance reminds us all that our choices, however small, possess the power to change the course of history!
We loved finding this easter egg within the Harry Potter films and you bet we are now watching them all back to back to see what else we can find – as if we need an excuse to revisit the wonderful Wizarding World!
