Emma Watson, best known as Hermione from the Harry Potter films, is reportedly dating tech entrepreneur William "Mack" Knight. Since he's not an actor or another type of Hollywood bigwig, relatively little is known about Knight. But that doesn't stop relentless fans and journalists from digging deep and trying to learn more about him.

According to People, Watson and Knight were first publicly spotted together after seeing Hamilton on Broadway in New York. They also may have vacationed together recently in Big Sur.

Like Watson, who attended Brown, Knight has a muggle Ivy League background according to his LinkedIn profile. He attended Princeton for undergrad, and he has an MBA from Columbia. Internet sleuths have also determined he is 35 years old (Watson is 25).

Watson has not commented publicly on the relationship, which is fitting since she prefers to keep a low profile. That may also explain why she's dating someone who is not part of Hollywood, even though the name "Mack Knight" sounds like a DJ from Los Angeles.
