Former ‘Harry Potter’ actress, Emma Watson has already moved on from the franchise and has been working on some other projects.
One of Emma’s dreams is to work on a Shakespeare adaptation and she has a long list of directors and actors that she has her heart set on working with. She said;
“I would love to work with directors Baz Luhrmann, Guillermo del Toro, Richard Curtis and Darren Aronofsky. In terms of actors, I love Philip Seymour Hoffman, James McAvoy, Cate Blanchett and Dame Helen Mirren. I’d love to do some Shakespeare one day and play Juliet or Ophelia.”
Emma already has two new films coming up, ‘My Week with Marilyn’ and ‘Perks of Being a Wallflower’ and she reveals a few details about her role in each project. Watson said;
“In ‘My Week with Marilyn’, I play a wardrobe assistant on Marilyn Monroe’s last big film. It’s a stellar British cast with a really great director in Simon Curtis. In ‘Perks of Being a Wallflower’, I play a girl who has had a difficult childhood and a hard time growing up and is desperately trying to turn her life around. She’s not been treated well by guys and has been made to feel worthless. I felt really compelled by her story and her struggle to find believe in herself.”
It will be interesting to see if Emma will be able to shake off her ‘Harry Potter’ character since she has been playing the role of Hermione for ten years.
