Emma Watson related to a real witch

emma_watsonAccording to genealogist Anastasia Tyler of Ancestry.com, Emma Watson, who plays Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, is 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.”
