Kari Lewis is a mother from Indianapolis who is unnervingly similar to Emma Watson. She found it out when people started to tell her she looks like Hermione Granger from Harry Potter, but by the time she had no idea who that was. After she found out, though, she had become an avid fan of the book series, finding it cool to cosplay Hermione at conventions.
“I didn’t know who Emma Watson was when I was first spotted at a postal office and a couple of young girls told me I looked like ‘Hermione Granger, she said. “I had no idea who Hermione was, nor have I ever heard of that name, at the time since this was when the first Harry Potter film was released. So, my mom and I had to look it up and find out who she was.”
“I think they sort of started my dive into the Harry Potter universe,” she said. “I’ve always loved reading books since I first learned how to read, so I think it was inevitable for me to like Harry Potter so much once I started reading it. I think it’s super cool because 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!”
