It seems our little Harry Potter Hermione is all grown up and about to head to university this September, with actress Emma Watson saying, “It’s going to sound dramatic, but I feel like it’s going to be my life over as I know it.”
In an interview with Elle Magazine UK, the 19-year-old talks about the upcoming end of her hit wizard movies and the beginning of a new adventure.
“My whole life has been about Harry Potter and then all of that’s going to shut down and I don’t know what that will be like,” Watson says. “I go to university in September – I’ll be doing bits and bobs at Christmas, but September feels like my cut off point, when I’ll really stop.”
She continues, “At the moment I feel like I need to go away and figure out what I want to do and be myself for a bit. I just want to take a step back from it and not rush into stuff. I need university to give me that break.”
Watson, who currently features in Burberry’s new ad campaign, continues, “People think because I’m going to university I’m never going to act again, but it’s actually me…I want to…figure out how I feel about everything first.”
At this point in time, Watson’s future plans on the big screen are up in the air, but she’s not ruling out a return to film.
“Maybe I’ll keep acting, maybe I won’t. I just want to find something where I feel I have to do this. Maybe that’ll happen when I read a script. It felt like that with Hermione. I want to feel like that again.”
