Hollywood actress Emma Watson is quite popular among the kids of the 90s after she featured as Hermione Granger in the fantasy series, Harry Potter, based on JK Rowling's novels. Not just as a child artist, Emma continued her magic for a decade in all eight parts. She successfully built a massive fandom with her spectacular performance as wizard Hermione learning at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

If you are an admirer of Emma and her character in the Harry Potter series, you might be remembering that Hermione was born on September 19, 1979. Fans recently celebrated the day with much excitement on social media. Different social media platforms got flooded with wishes for the fictional character.

However, amid all wishes, one post drew the attention of netizens. The special birthday wish was made by Emma's lookalike. 

Kari Lewis, who has an uncanny resemblance to Emma, went full Gryffindor cosplay for Hermione’s birthday. She shared the video on TikTok that went viral. Lewis is an actor and cosplayer by profession enacting the character of Hermione at conventions.

Lewis certainly has a close resemblance to the 32-year-old British actress. The most amazing fact is Lewis and Emma are of the same age and the former grew up at the same time in the US. Lewis has apparently looked like the actress since she was a kid. Since 2017, she has been dressing up as Hermione after learning about the character.

Isn't it really challenging to distinguish between the duo? Meanwhile, Lewis is not the only doppelganger who has a close resemblance to Emma.

Kiernan Shipka also has an uncanny resemblance to Hermione. Shipka is an American actress best known for her character Sally Draper in the AMC drama series Mad Men. 

Admirers of the actresses have been sharing pictures of the duo hailing their uncanny resemblance. 

Well, it might take a few seconds to identify the real Emma Watson even if one is a diehard fan of Hermione Granger.
