About dressing the way she wants (2007): "In interviews like this and when I'm working on Harry Potter I can dress myself, but the stylists on those shoots have a strong view of what they want you to look like. So sometimes it's a bit of a battle between what they want you to be and what I really am, so I'm like, 'Please take off the eyeliner', or 'Please don't put me in those awful shoes', or whatever it is."

Charles's Inspiration Story

I suppose it's wise to start at the beginning, right. Well, I saw Emma Watson on "The Sorcerer's Stone" and instantly fell in love with her wit and personality.

It inspired me to write a story about a wizard, based on her image as Hermione. I call the series Princess Luanne and Wizard Heatheria. (See if you can guess who Emma would be.)

Anyway, Heatheria is an orphaned twelve-year-old with a magical lineage, and she makes friends with twenty-one-year-old... yep, you guessed it, Princess Luanne. They become a force for good as teacher and apprentice in the arts of magic and would do anything to help each other, even if it costs them their lives.

I owe everything to Emma, and I hope that when you read this story, you'll think so, too.
