The Perks of Being a Wallflower’s Emma Watson on Bonding with the Cast: “We would want to stay up all night together, it was that kind of an experience”

Emma Watson became famous for her role in the Harry Potter movie series. Now that the young actress has grown up, she’s ready to take on more challenging roles, like her recent project, The Perks of Being a Wallflower. The film is based on the novel by Stephen Chbosky, who also wrote the screenplay and directed the production.

Most teenagers have a pretty similar experience—dating, high school, prom. But most teenagers didn’t grow up spending their time on one of the most successful movie sets of all time. Emma Watson started playing Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series when she was just 9-years-old, thus eliminating the possibility of a normal high school experience. So the British actress jumped at the chance to portray a typical teenager in The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
