Emma Watson voted most likely to succeed beyond “Harry Potter” franchise

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: Emma Watson, who played Hermione Granger in more than eight “Harry Potter” films has been voted by an overwhelming majority (via the Parade 2011 Pop Culture Poll) as the actor most likely to succeed beyond the franchise.

Not only was Watson the landslide winner, with a confidence vote of 79%, only 2% of those polled believed her co-star Rupert Grint, who played Ron Weasley, was most likely to succeed. Making up the balance was Daniel Radcliffe, who acted the role of the franchise’s namesake. Only 18% of respondents thought Radcliffe was most likely to succeed outside of “Harry Potter” fame.

    An easy ‘poll” to manipulate. Would take these results with a grain of salt.

    I agree with Taz. Emma has only done one non Potter acting role so far that has been seen by the public (Dancing Shoes). Rupert has done several films and Daniel has done a film, TV films and one serious stage play and a musical. Plus he’s done a bit of comedy as well as drama. Only time will really tell which of the three is most successful, and it may not be proved for many decades.

    I for one would very much like to know the _actual_ wording of this so-called poll’s question. For instance, just the term ‘succeed’ is quite a broad one and highly subjective to interpretation…
