Emma Watson Supports Transgender Rights

Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) shares a personal post on her Instagram to support transgender rights in the UK.

Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) has come forward in support of trans rights as UK activists urge people to fill out a government-led public consultation to reform the Gender Recognition Act 2004 (GRA).

The Gender Recognition Act is a ground-breaking piece of legislation that came into action in 2004, allowing people with gender dysphoria to change their legal gender, but now campaigners are seeking to alter the law.

Activists are now fighting to have the GRA changed to allow people to self-identify their gender without rigorous medical checks to prove they’re living in their truth, and Emma’s support is bringing the fight into the mainstream spotlight.

In a photo on her Instagram feed, she wears a white t-shirt with the slogan ‘Trans Rights are Human Rights’, alongside tagging multiple trans and LGBTQ+ organisations.

Emma Watson on Set of Little Women

Emma Watson was seen on set of Little Women on October 07, 2018.

As the title says, Emma Watson (Hermione Granger) was spotted filming scenes for her upcoming movie project Little Women in Boston on October 07, in which she’s playing Meg March.

The movie is an adaption of Louisa May Alcott’s seminal novel, which turned 150 earlier this year. In order to capture the authentic feeling of 1868 Boston, filmmakers laid down a layer of dirt on a portion of Dartmouth Street near where it intersects Marlborough Street.

Alongside Emma, Little Women is set to star actress Meryl Streep, Timothee Chalamet, Laura Dern, and Saoirse Ronan, and will be directed by Greta Gerwig. The film is scheduled to shoot from October through December in Boston, Concord, Ipswich, Lawrence, and the Lexington/Burlington area, and is slated to hit theaters December 25, 2019.

Harry Potter Helped Evanna Lynch Overcome Eating Disorder

Evanna Lynch (Luna Lovegood) opens up about her eating disorder and tells how the Harry Potter saga helped her overcome the disease.

Evanna (Luna Lovegood) and her Dancing With the Stars partner Keo Motsepe are bringing the Harry Potter magic to the ballroom by dancing the Viennese Waltz to the tune of the iconic “Hedwig’s Theme.” Before taking the stage next week, ET’s Katie Krause was with Evanna and Keo at their DWTS rehearsal on Thursday, where Evanna reflected on how the famous franchise helped her with her body issues and overcome an eating disorder.

“I believe on raising awareness on this issue and it’s very healing for me to talk about this stuff,” she confessed. “I wanted to talk about how before Harry Potter, I was quite sick, and how the Harry Potter books really helped me through an eating disorder. And the reason I wanted to talk about it on here, it’s really healing for me… That is the full story, that’s the only kind of honest way to tell it, and that’s why it was so special because it was the only kind of light that I saw in the world at a very dark time.”

Adding that getting her Harry Potter role was a “fairy tale,” she however, doesn’t want her story to be sensationalized and for people to think that her mental issues were “cured” just because she got the part.

Miranda Richardson & David Tennant Attend Amazon’s London TV Showcase

Miranda Richardson (Rita Skeeter) and David Tennant (Barty Crouch Jr.) attended Amazon’s London TV Showcase in London, UK today.

Today, October 02, actress Miranda Richardson, best known as Rita Skeeter to us Potterheads, and her co-star David Tennant (Barty Crouch Jr.) attended Amazon’s London TV Showcase in London to promote their latest project, Amazon Prime Video show Good Omens.

Neil Gaiman, author of the book, announced earlier this year he’d be teaming up with the BBC to bring the book to TV.

“Almost 30 years ago, Terry Pratchett and I wrote the funniest novel we could about the end of the world, populated by angels and demons, not to mention an 11-year-old Antichrist,” Gaiman commented.”It became many people’s favourite book. Three decades later, it’s going to make it to the screen. I can’t think of anyone we’d rather make it with than BBC Studios, and I just wish Sir Terry were alive to see it.”

Joining Miranda and David in the cast are Michael Sheen, Sam Taylor Buck, Daniel May, Jon Hamm and Sian Brooke. The show is directed by Douglas Mackinnon.

Katie Leung is Being Typecast Because of Her Chinese Background

Katie Leung (Cho Chang) complains that she is being typecast because of her Chinese background and still suffers racial abuse for playing Harry Potter’s first love.

Katie Leung (Cho Chang) – starring in TV show Strangers – has just revealed she still suffers racial abuse for playing Harry Potter’s first love — and has told of her frustration at being pigeonholed as an Asian actress. The 31-year-old said she is always cast according to her race.

Leung plays Lau Chen in the eight-part ITV political thriller Strangers, which follows the death of the wife of Professor Jonah Mulray, played by John Simm, in a mysterious car crash.

Katie, who has performed with the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre, studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow after making the Potter films. Complaining of being typecast because of her Chinese background, she said:

“There is just so much I want to do and play. My expectations are really low at the moment. It is really hard.

“I don’t want to deny my heritage, or culture, but at the same time I feel like we need to reach a place where people are not stereotyping me.”
