July 18, 2011 - Washington

Emma Watson has revealed that she is delighted she will always be associated with her 'Harry Potter' character Hermione Granger.

Watson, 21, who plays the leading female character in the 'Harry Potter' films, revealed she is not "afraid" of always being related to the role because of how "intelligent and strong" she is.

"People ask me if I am afraid of always being associated with this character, but I'm not at all. I'm thrilled," Contactmusic quoted her as saying.

"Of anyone I could be associated with for the rest of my life, for it to be Hermione Granger - beautiful, strong, intelligent and determined - I'm just thrilled," she said.

The star, who has just finished filming new film 'The Perks of Being A Wallflower', went on to say that she thinks Hermione is a brilliant role model for young girls.

"Hermione really developed in to the kind of woman I would want to be. She's an amazing role model," she said.

"She's key in saving the men and the boys of the film - and I know we're in 2011 but that's genuinely pretty unique. She's really setting a new standard and I hope people take notice of that," she added.
