In a scene from the fifth series of the epic BBC/HBO/Emma Watson drama The Good Place, a group of young people at a party in Los Angeles prepare to celebrate their graduating year.
As the guests prepare to leave, a moment of hesitation is met when the group’s most popular member leaves the party.
“You made it a joy to be Hermione Granger. Enjoy being an actress.”
– Emma Watson, as Hermione to her students in the The Good Place
With a smile on her face, Emma Watson leaves her students smiling as the sun sets behind her and her students exit her classroom, with Emma Watson and her students looking on.
It was one of those unexpected things that every mother or teacher would find themselves thinking while they’re teaching their students. They’re thinking about how the students and students parents felt about how Emma Watson came across as Hermione when she was still Hermione. They’re also thinking about how Emma Watson made them feel when she came across as Hermione in the fifth series of The Good Place that aired Thursday nights.
On the show, Emma Watson played Hermione Granger, the role she played at the beginning of Hermione’s life. She grew up in the small town of Kingsbrook, a part of the town that was very proud of her father and her family. She didn’t attend a private school, she didn’t have any friends, and she certainly didn’t have a social circle as large as Hermione’s does. She left the small, uncluttered town of Kingsbrook and made her way to the very large, crowded city of New York. She found her way through the glittery city by attending a local acting workshop, and when she began to apply for jobs in different parts of the city, she found she was quickly turned down by many places because she had no connections to help her with an audition. She could have easily gone into any random city and gotten the job, but she realized that wasn’t who she was
