Emma Appointed UN Women Goodwill Ambassador

UNwomen_EmmaWatson_GoodwillAmbassador_2

UN Women, the United Nations organization dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women, today announced the appointment of British Actress, Emma Watson, as Goodwill Ambassador.

Best known for her role as Hermione Granger in the ‘Harry Potter’ film series, the accomplished actress, humanitarian, and recent graduate of Ivy League institution Brown University, will dedicate her efforts as UN Women Goodwill Ambassador towards the empowerment of young women and will serve as an advocate for UN Women’s HeForShe campaign in promoting gender equality.

“We are thrilled and honoured to work with Emma, whom we believe embodies the values of UN Women,” stated Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka, Under-Secretary-General and Executive Director, UN Women. “The engagement of young people is critical for the advancement of gender equality in the 21st century, and I am convinced that Emma’s intellect and passion will enable UN Women’s messages to reach the hearts and minds of young people globally,” added Ms. Mlambo-Ngcuka.

Ms. Watson has been involved in the promotion of girls’ education for several years, and previously visited Bangladesh and Zambia as part of her humanitarian efforts.

“Being asked to serve as UN Women’s Goodwill Ambassador is truly humbling. The chance to make a real difference is not an opportunity that everyone is given and is one I have no intention of taking lightly. Women’s rights are something so inextricably linked with who I am, so deeply personal and rooted in my life that I can’t imagine an opportunity more exciting. I still have so much to learn, but as I progress I hope to bring more of my individual knowledge, experience and awareness to this role,” said Ms. Watson.

Ms. Watson is the first Goodwill Ambassador appointment under Ms. Mlambo-Ngcuka’s leadership.

Queen of the Tearling Update

Emma Watson will play Kelsea Glynn in the film adaptation of Erika Johansen’s upcoming Queen of the Tearling trilogy. The story is of a young woman, “raised by foster parents in a cottage hidden away in a remote forest. On her 19th birthday, Kelsea is removed from her home to take her rightful place as sovereign of a fictional post-utopian country that hides dark secrets and is menaced by a neighbouring monarch.”

“Before filming, Emma will have to learn to ride a horse, bulk up (not too much), and do weeks of combat training (including knife work and swordsmanship). She’ll also be taught how to snare rabbits and practise climbing trees. The Queen Of The Tearling is like Game Of Thrones and The Hunger Games meets Pulp Fiction; there’s a feminist perspective, but also a lot of bloody goings-on.”

David Heyman will produce, with Emma as an executive producer. A script is due soon and then a search for a director will begin. No projected filming date has been announced.

The first part of the Tearling trilogy will be published this month, July 8 in the US and July 17 in the UK.
