Emma Watson's swotty character HERMIONE GRANGER has been named as the most beloved character in the Harry Potter franchise, according to a new poll.
Fans of the wizard tales voted the bushy-haired academic as their favourite member of the Harry Potter gang.
And Potter devotees are adamant the 19 year old actress will have the most successful career after the films come to an end in 2011.
Some 51 per cent believed Watson would enjoy a more lucrative future than her co-stars Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint, with 39 per cent insisting she'd become a sex symbol.
Watson has already proved a hit on the fashion circuit, landing modelling jobs with high-class design house Burberry.
