Happy birthday, Emma Watson!

The English actress — who turns 24 on Tuesday — became an international sensation at just 9-years-old when she made her debut as Harry Potter‘s Hermione Granger. Since her blockbuster gig as the quick-witted witch, Emma has landed major versatile roles, like in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Bling Ring, and her latest film, Noah.

In celebration of her birthday, here are her 24 best moments in the wizarding world of Harry Potter:
