    Emma Watson Has A Doppelgänger That'll Make You Do A Double-Take

    What's better than one Emma Watson? Two, of course!

    If you were walking down the street and saw this person walk by, would you assume you'd been transported to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry?

    Well, you'd (obviously) be wrong, because Hogwarts is a fictional school from the pages of Harry Potter, and also because it's NOT Emma Watson.

    She's a mom from Indianapolis who just so happens to have a VERY famous doppelgänger.

    Kari, whose day job is working at a video rental store, told BuzzFeed that she first heard about Harry Potter because of strangers who told her she resembled Hermione Granger.

    The resemblance sparked a "dive into the Harry Potter universe" that turned her into a fan of Hermione:

    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". 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.

    If it wasn't for those two young girls, I probably wouldn't have known about Harry Potter until a bit later. I think they sort of started my dive into the Harry Potter universe. 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!

    The resemblance between Emma and Kari is uncanny, especially when she breaks out her wand:

    And Kari dressed as Belle from Beauty and the Beast?

    Perfectly done.

    Remember when the internet reacted to Emma Watson's Belle doll? Turns out that doll looks even more like Kari than anyone else:

    Emma or Kari?

    Kari or Emma?

    Long-lost relatives?

    Or just a really good case of celebrity doppelgängers?

    THE WORLD MAY NEVER KNOW!
