And with her pixie crop hair emphasising her delicate and captivating features teamed with a LBD showing off her enviable figure it was clear to see why she has become a model in demand.

The actress was mobbed by over eager fans as she left her hotel and was quickly surrounded by members of the public who were desperate for an autograph.

Emma tried to sign as many posters as she could despite the hectic crowds but was quickly whisked away into her car to join her co-stars with an impressive backdrop provided by the St Pancras Hotel.

The actress, who has recently admitted she has struggled to find a boyfriend because men find her success intimidating, greeted Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley with a warm embrace.

The pair were missing their co-star Daniel Radcliffe from the line-up who did not attend the photo call because of other work commitments.

Rupert was dressed in a black blazer a plain white T-shirt and a pair of dark jeans, an outfit which simply couldn’t compete with Miss Watson’s glamour.

Emma has spoken out about her on-screen kiss with Rupert and described it as the 'most anticipated kiss in history'.

She said: ‘We've been building tension to this moment for like eight movies.

‘We were like, “People have been really waiting for this moment, and we have really got to pull this off.” And I was like “yes, I know. What are we going to do?”’

But she admitted that she thinks that she and her co-star ‘did alright’ on the smooching front.

Tom Felton, who plays Draco Malfoy in the wizard films, showed off a healthy tan, and it appears he has been making the most of the sunshine recently after having to stay pale for his on-screen part.
