Y'know, it's kind of dispiriting when you like someone in a fandom who almost everybody in that fandom hates.

Hey, I like Steve Kloves and Michael Gambon, so I hear you, Brother! I commented on Facebook as well, but here we have a character that JKR admits is the closest to herself, and JKR said "Thank Christ" they cast Emma. I think a lot of the Emma-hate comes from (mostly) women who are a) jealous, b) crushing on Rupert, c) have a distorted view of book-Hermione ("Hermione doesn't cry so much/ hyperventilate/ love Harry/ etc."), or d) hate Steve Kloves. Is Emma Watson the Hermione I imagine from the books? No. Is she an awesome Hermione? Yes.

Yeah, I'd never claim that she hasn't blown a line, or even a scene, but when all is said and done, I couldn't ask for a better, truer Hermione... And neither, I'm delighted to find, could JKR!
