American Mum-Of-One Is Emma Watson's Doppelgänger - And It's Pretty Creepy

On a planet where there are more than 7.5 billion people, there's bound to be a few people who look like each other. In fact, there's a famous idea that there's seven people on the planet who bear a striking resemblance to yourself. Anyone else starting to feel sorry for people you've never met?

Anyway, that means that there are celebrity doppelgängers. The lucky bastards. Imagine walking around looking like David Beckham or Blake Lively?

Some people make an absolute fortune from having a famous face. Others decide that they don't quite fancy doing appearances, so instead they take part in comicon events and do a load of cosplaying.

That route is the one that Kari Lewis decided to take.

The mum-of-one looks just like Emma Watson. You can tell it's not her, but it's enough of a similarity for you to pass her in the street and go: "Woah. That girl looks just like Emma Watson!" and that's good enough for me.

She lives in Indianapolis, USA, and has been cosplaying as her for a while now.

Speaking to Buzzfeed, she said: "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."

She continued: "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!"

She's recently started branching out into other cosplay, such as Wonder Woman, but how she's ever going to top this, I don't know.
