The Literary Film Roles of Emma Watson

British actress and activist Emma Watson is famous for portraying literary characters on the screen, with 15 of her 19 film credits to date in movies based on books. From Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter franchise to Sam in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Watson’s roles demonstrate her talent for bringing beloved characters to life. And as the star of two films rooted in literature this year (Beauty and the Beast and The Circle), it looks like her penchant for choosing literary-inspired projects will continue for years to come.

In honor of Watson’s 27th birthday today, we assembled a gallery highlighting every one of her film roles based on a book.
