There are celebrity look-alikes, and then there are CELEBRITY LOOK-ALIKES. And Emma Watson’s latest doppelgänger definitely constitutes the second.
Indiana-native Kari Lewis apparently first become aware of the fact that she #TWINS with the famous British actress right after the first Harry Potter movie came out. “I didn’t know who Emma Watson was when I was first spotted at a postal office and a couple of young girls told me I looked like ‘Hermione Granger,'” she told Buzzfeed in an interview.
Okay, okay, understandable. The wizarding world was nowhere near the phenomenon back then as it is now. She went on to say, “If it wasn’t for those two young girls, I probably wouldn’t have known about Harry Potter until a bit later. I think they sort of started my dive into the Harry Potter universe. I’ve always loved reading books since I first learned how to read, so I think it was inevitable for me to like Harry Potter so much once I started reading it.”
Oh, and did we mention that Kari also dresses up in Hermione cosplay?!
OMG. And look — she also did Belle!
Our minds are officially blown. Kari continued on, saying, “I think it’s super cool because I’ve always related to Hermione in the books (smart, bossy, avid reader, etc). So, it makes cosplaying as Hermione at conventions a thousand times better!”
We couldn’t agree more, girl. In fact, if we looked as much like Emma Watson as Kari, we’d probs dress exclusively like Hermione and Belle at literally all times. In fact, here’s one for the road:
Seriously. Minds: Blown.
