The lovely British actress and United Nations Global Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson is somehow continuing to become even more interesting. The actress we all came to know through her role as Hermione in the Harry Potter Franchise showed her tough side last week by taking fighting lessons.

Watson participated in a session with SheFighter training to promote self defense for women. The owner of SheFighter, Lina Khalifeh, opened the first “self-defense studio” for women in the Middle East.

“Ready for anything after SheFighter training with the amazing Lina Khalifeh,” Watson captioned the post with multiple photos. “She opened the first self defense studio for women in the Middle East. I’ll be chatting with her and eight other activists about challenging gender stereotypes at One Young World Ottawa later today.”

Watson showed brief glimpses of her fiery side over the course of her career as Hermione Granger, but never like this. It seems the stunning actress/activist is fighting for women in more ways than one these days.
