It was one decade ago when we welcomed a young Emma Watson into our living rooms and began this journey that would last eight movies. Having grown up right before our eyes, the Watson admits it will be hard to move on. I cried, cried, cried, cried, cried - it was really emotional and overwhelming, she declared.
The lovely Emma Watson took on the role of Hermione Granger with very little acting experience. She had only performed in school plays. Aside from her Harry Potter work, she starred in the BBC1 production of Ballet Shoes and was also featured in the animated film Tales of Despereaux alongside Matthew Broderick in 2008.
Watson was attending Brown University but is now to be taking a leave to begin at Worcester College at Oxford.The clear up the rumors, Watson confirmed at a press conference: I haven't left Brown. I'm still enrolled at Brown. But I'm doing my third year abroad. She will be studying English in her home country.
Other then her studies, Watson has quite a lot in store for her in the limelight. The 21-year-old's elegant beauty has led her to several modeling contracts. She has recently worked with Burberry and has become the new face of Lancôme International. This summer she will begin filming for her new role in The Perks of Being Wallflower. The movie is based on the popular young adult novel and will co-star Logan Lerman and Nina Dobrev. She will also be in a film called My week With Marilyn staring Kenneth Branagh and Michelle Williams and directed by Simon Curtis. The film, set in 1957, is due out in 2012. And finally, word is buzzing about Watson as the role of Belle in a Guillermo Del Toro production of Beauty and the Beast. The details about the project are unclear, but perhaps we will see the pair collaborate on this adaptation of the tale.
I'm sure we all shed a nostalgic tear during the end credits of the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. But rest assured it will not be the last we see of Emma Watson.
