Emma Watson is a witch!
Not really, but the 19-year-old British beauty is a distant relative of Joan Playle of Essex County, England, who was convicted of witchcraft in 1592 and excommunicated from the Church of England, according to genealogist Anastasia Tyler of Ancestry.com.
Tyler tells People mag, “It’s not every day we’re able to trace the branches of a family tree back to 16th-century witch trials. Combine that with a celebrity connection to Emma Watson and the fact that she plays a witch in Harry Potter: You couldn’t script it any better.”
