Young Harry Potter Fan Told She's Hermione Granger's Double

A young Harry Potter fan has revealed that she's constantly mistaken for Hermione Granger because of her striking resemblance to the literary star!

Ellie Rowe, 10, was first told she looked like the know-it-all witch when she was just a toddler and the comparisons have never stopped.

People began to notice the similarity when Ellie was just three years old.

Her resemblance to the character, played by Emma Watson in the hit films, has only grown since then.

Thankfully, Ellie has embraced the comparisons and frequently dresses up as her literary doppelgänger.

Her mum Rochelle, a trainee nurse from Cornwall, said: "At our wedding my mother-in-law came up to me and said Ellie looked like Hermione.

"I hadn't noticed until that moment, but then I thought 'actually, she does quite!'

"From then on, as she grew up, she started looking more and more like her every day.

"When Ellie dressed up in the outfit at around six or seven-years-old it was quite bizarre as really she looked like Hermione's double."

Ellie still bears a strong resemblance to Hermione, but we also think she's got her own unique look too!

Ellie said of the similarity: "I have loved Harry Potter since I can remember and when people started to tell me that I looked like Hermione Granger it was so exciting.

"I even started to feel like I had magical powers and wanted to go to Hogwarts. I read the books with my mum first and then we watched the films.

"I absolutely loved them at the time and I still do today!"

On the subject of Harry Potter, while it's been over a decade since the release of the last film, Tom Felton AKA Draco Malfoy, recently told Tyla that he'd be down for reprising his iconic role in a TV series.

He said he'd be 'quite passionate' about getting involved.

"I'd obviously need to assess at the time, but I won't lie, I do miss Draco definitely. He's a fun person to play," he added.

Felton also spoke out in defence of Malfoy and said he's not really a villain.

"Well he’s not really villainous is he? He’s just bullied. So I don’t really see him as a bad guy at all. I just see him as a product of pretty poor parenting. And poor choices along the way," he said.
