Emma Watson on Her 'Beauty & The Beast' Audition: 'I Had to Prove I Had The Voice'

Emma Watson channels her Beauty and the Beast character Belle on the cover of Total Film Magazine, available now.

The 26-year-old actress opened up about relating to Belle, auditioning for the part and collaborating on the script. Check it:

On auditioning for the role: “It gave me a sense of ownership. I would have hated to have felt I got the part undeservedly. I had to prove I had the voice to do it.”

On why she related to her character Belle: “I just felt the character of Belle resonated with me so much more than Cinderella did. I don’t feel like I really felt like I particularly fit in when I was younger. There’s this kind of outsider quality that Belle had and the fact she had this really empowering defiance of what was expected of her. In a strange way, she challenges the status quo of the place she lives in, and I found that really inspiring too. And also, she manages to keep her integrity and have a completely independent point of view. She’s not easily swayed by other people’s perspective; not swayed by fear mongering or scapegoating.”

On working on the script with director Bill Condon: “I think Bill knew I had concerns about the script, and there were things that I needed to see. It was very collaborative.”
