Kari Lewis, a other from Indiana, is shocking people with her striking resemblance to movie star Emma Watson.
The video store employee says she had no idea of her connection to Watson until two strangers pointed it out to her at the post office. Naturally, Lewis quickly took to Instagram to put the theory to the test. Check it out above.
Shortly after the first Harry Potter movie came out, the two girls told Kari she looked like Hermione Granger, Watson’s character in the wizard-themed saga. Kari had no idea who Watson was, and had to look her up along with her own mother.
“If it wasn’t for those two young girls, I probably wouldn’t have known about Harry Potter until a bit later,” Lewis told BuzzFeed News.
After she found out about Watson, Lewis crushed all of the Harry Potter books and watched all of the movies. Unsurprisingly, she began to take great pride in the Hermione character.
“I’ve always related to Hermione in the books (smart, bossy, avid reader, etc). So, it makes cosplaying as Hermione at conventions a thousand times better!” she said.
Since then, Lewis has continued to perfect her Watson replicas, including in-costume photos as Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Her Instagram is full of comments from users wowed by the resemblance.
“Congrats on being the only known young woman in existence who ISN’T actually Emma freaking Watson to actually come closer than anybody to looking like and having the incomparable beauty of EMMA FREAKING WATSON!” one of them wrote.
