"Usually whenever I visit large towns or cities, such as London or Oxford, I always feel so bad to let people down who think I am Emma, as I don’t want to disappoint people. It’s very surreal, though, experiencing even a tiny bit of what it’s like for a celebrity on a daily basis," Ella said.
A young woman from the UK has gone viral for her uncanny resemblance to Emma Watson. Ella shared her photo on social media (Reddit) along with an Emma Watson photo and people were absolutely surprised by the similar looks of the two. The girl's post gained the attention of more than 65k people!
“My name is Ella Norton, and I am a 17-year-old from England. I am currently doing my A-Levels, and have enjoyed starting up an Instagram and posting on Reddit as a celebrity lookalike. I’ve been told that I resembled Emma ever since I was young! I never thought I resembled her enough to ever make something of it, but starting an Instagram page and sharing some photos on Reddit has proved me wrong!” the Emma Watson look-alike expressed.
Ella has been stopped in the street by so many because of her resemblance.
"Usually whenever I visit large towns or cities, such as London or Oxford. I always feel so bad to let people down who genuinely think I am Emma, as I don’t want to disappoint people. It’s very surreal, though, experiencing even a tiny bit of what it’s like for a celebrity on a daily basis,” she said.
“I’ve only recently started cosplaying this year. So far I’ve only really cosplayed as Hermione, but I’m looking to also cosplay Belle from Beauty and The Beast, and Meg March from Little Women. I’ve never done any professional cosplay before, but I’m looking forward to learning more about cosplay and going to conventions when I can,” the 17-year-old revealed.
What's even more fascinating is the young girl's interest in books and speaking about issues that matter! It looks like looks are not the only thing that's similar between Emma and Ella.
“I’m an avid bookworm, and am very passionate about studying! I love being able to share the books I’m reading and my daily studying with my following online. I also really enjoy acting, singing, and ballet,” Ella shared with Bored Panda. “It’s been the dream to study at Oxford University reading English ever since I was little. After, I am hoping to go to work for human rights. I consider myself to be an advocate for human rights as well as environmental issues, and I would love to be able to make a difference in the world. That’s another reason why I like having a platform on social media; it’s great to have a voice with which I can speak on important issues,” she added.
