Emma Watson – Harry Potter and Beyond

I have to geek out here for just a few minutes. I am a BIG Harry Potter fan. Wasn’t always, but after reading the books I am completely into it. Hearing the news that the teenage trio have all signed to the end of Deathly Hallows is encouraging, especially Emma Watson.

Watson stirred up worries that she wanted out, and that she didnt plan on a career in acting after HP anyways. But now that she has signed on, we catch wind that she IS seeking other acting jobs on the side.

Leaky Cauldron quotes

Only things I don’t want to do. Most of them are roles for the typical American high school student, which is, to be honest, my worse nightmare. I know I’ve been lucky so far, but I just need another bit of luck in order not to make mistakes in this particular moment of my life. Auditions are really hard, and being rejected is always a bad experience. But I’ll keep trying.

So this adds one more piece of evidence that Watson’s stalling tactics to sign for the remainder of the series had nothing to do with her lack of desire to act. She also quoted that she might get typecast, but after 5 movies its already too late. Three more isnt going to change anything.

Interesting though that a 17 year old actress is SURPRISED that she is only being considered for TEENAGE highschool roles. Granted the typical child actor’s life seems more surrounded in cameras and manservants than highschool cafeterias and homeroom, but honestly how out of touch do you have to be to think you WOUDLNT get teenage roles when you are only 17?

Lindsay Lohan is almost 21, and she still mostly does teenage roles. I think Watson should count herself blessed that she is being offered anything at all! Not that I think she is a bad actress. She is decent enough and has a lot of potential, and quite frankly she isnt hard on the eyes either.

I personally would think that a highschool movie would be a great stepping stone to getting her career off the ground outside of Potter. Provided she isnt cast as the brainy one.

If she can manage to do something so beneath her.
