Emma Watson Talks About Her Next Stop After ‘Harry Potter': College Or More Movies?

I think you guys are so friendly and so open. I just think you’re great!”

But, Emma isn’t sure that once filming wraps on the final “Harry Potter” films and she begins classes — at presumably Columbia or Brown — if she’ll have the time to fit movies into her schedule. “I don’t know. I’m reading a lot of scripts and talking to casting agents and if something comes up in the right time then I [would consider it].”

Although the 19-year-old didn’t say what the right film might be she did say that being an uber-famous kid star has taken a toll on her. “If it was something I really wanted to do, then I wouldn’t say no. But at the same time I’ve been working solidly since I was like ten… so I’m gong to take a bit of break,” she said jokingly, adding, “That’s the worst thing you never want to hear someone in my position being like, ’Oh my life’s terrible!'”
