More 'Emma Watson'...

Emma Watson roots

Emma Watson

Emma Watson may have talent and looks, but she also has magic in her blood aside from that of her role as Hermione Granger in Harry Potter.

Watson’s ancestors seem to have been doing some magic themselves, as the British actress can trace back to real life woman in her family who were accused of witchcraft in the 16th century.

Genealogist Anastasia Tyler says that the 19-year-old actress is actually a distant relative of Joan Playle of Essex County, England, who was convicted of witchcraft in 1592 and excommunicated from the Church of England.

“It’s not every day we’re able to trace the branches of a family tree back to 16th-century witch trials,” Tyler says. “Combine that with a celebrity connection to Emma Watson and the fact that she plays a witch in Harry Potter: You couldn’t script it any better.”
