Emma Watson, the star from the movie “Harry Potter” has refused to sign up for the last two installments in the series, despite being offered 2 million pounds per film to reprise her role as Hermione Granger.
The 16-year-old actress is said to be tired of her playing Harry Potter’s know-it-all friend and she wanted to try new projects. It was also reported that a stalker followed her into school and managed to talk to her before being warned off campus last week. Since the incident happens, Emma Watson has a private bodyguard.
Rupert Grint, the co-star of Emma Watson, revealed, “Emma doesn’t want to do it any more. She’s tired of being known as, ‘that girl from Harry Potter.’”
However, a spokesperson for the Hollywood Studio revealed, “We’re extremely confident that Emma will be back for films six and seven.”
The fifth installment in the saga based on JK Rowling’s books, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, is expected in United Kingdom cinemas in July. The sixth installment, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, should arrive the following year.
