performances in several school productions.
At school, little Em showed her acting enthusiasm, took the lead role in several plays, including "Arthur: The Young Years," "The Happy Prince," and "Alice in Wonderland." Besides acting, she also participated in many other school productions. It was when she turned 7 that she won the 1st prize in a school poetry recital, the Daisy Pratt Poetry Competition. Thereupon, her head teacher nominated her and some other friends to audition and compete against many other girls for the role of Hermione Granger in the film "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" (2001) when people from the casting office came to her Oxford primary school. Joined for fun only, Em unexpectedly did one audition to other auditions, beating other contestants, many of whom were actresses who had a lot more acting experience than herself. To her shock, she at last won the role and thus the story began.
