Emma Watson snags spot on MTV’s Top 50 Movie Characters of 2012

Today MTV revealed spots 30-21 on their countdown of the Top 50 Movie Characters of 2012. Coming in at number 22 is Emma Watson’s character Sam from The Perks of Being a Wallflower. MTV says of the character:

In a nutshell, Sam (played by Emma Watson) is everything you want in a high school movie love interest or crush. She is classically pretty, smart, sassy yet sensitive, realistically flawed. There’s also a quirkiness and element of mystery about her, which makes her irresistible to our titular “Wallflower” Charlie and the audience, particularly as we’re further put under the spell of Emma Watson’s acting charm and chops.

Emma was also nominated for a People’s Choice award for her role as Sam in The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Were you inspired by her performance?

I've been making magic at MuggleNet since 2012, when I first joined the staff as a News intern. I've never wavered from the declaration in my childhood journal, circa October 2000: "I LOVE Harry Potter! If I clean my room, my mom says she'll make me a dinner a wizard would love!" Proud Gryffindor; don't hate.
