It is a common belief among many that there is someone else in the world who looks similar to us. If my doppelgänger does indeed exist, I hope she is living the high life — sipping cocktails on a yacht and enjoying life. At least, this face will bear joy and elation on another body!
2. The Dark Side Of Being A Celebrity Doppelgänger
Oh, but when the celebrity you resemble is someone people love, then expect love from all over the world. People will go crazy for you. You could the local Angelina Jolie, Tom Hardy or even the Gigi Hadid cashier of your local supermarket.
This is what Kari Lewis gets to experience every day. Lewis has a striking resemblance to actress Emma Watson. You know the one, the girl who has worked in beloved Disney movies, Harry Potter and the one who gives empowering and inspiring speeches for all women.
Unlike Watson, who goes from London to LA, Japan to New York, Lewis lives in Indianapolis, Indiana. The latter wasn’t even aware of her resemblance to the actress. She first learned about Watson when she was working at a video store.
She explains that the customers were the ones to make her aware of this resemblance. They would comment on how much she resembled Hermione Granger from Harry Potter. “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,” but don’t get offended by her lack of knowledge just yet Potterheads. “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,” Lewis explains.
It was thanks to the customers’ comments that Lewis fell in love with the Harry Potter series. “I think they sort of started my dive into the Harry Potter universe,” she said. “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.
The best part of resembling Emma Watson for Lewis is that she loves the character of Hermione Granger. “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!”
It didn’t take Lewis much to start playing the doppelgänger game. Here she is looking like Hermione Granger in her army battle. Lewis is wearing Hermione’s trademark red sweatshirt and denim jacket.
11. Channeling Harry Potter
Lewis is not afraid to channel her inner wizard or witch for that matter. Even Harry Potter’s round rimmed glasses suit this woman. And look at that trademark scarf.
12. Playing Dress Up
Lewis seems to enjoy playing dress up. She rocked another trademark Emma Watson look by wearing the dress Belle wears in the opening scene of Beauty and the Beast. Now if only she could break out into song.
There really isn’t a drawback to being Emma Watson’s doppelgänger, is there? There is only one thing Lewis and the rest of us need to know. Is Watson aware of her doppelgänger yet? Lewis might come into good use for her
