'Potter' Star Watson Is Set for Life

9 July 2007 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The Harry Potter franchise has set young Brit Emma Watson up for life - she insists she never has to work again once the film series ends. The teenager, who plays Hermione Granger in the Potter movies, had no idea the franchise would make her rich beyond her dreams when she auditioned for the first film as a 10-year-old. She now earns a reported $4 million for each Harry Potter film. She tells America's Parade magazine, "Let's be honest, I have enough money never to have to work again, but I would never want that." The sensible teen reportedly held out for extra money to complete the Potter series of films. She refuses to comment on the salary rumors, but insists agreeing to make three more films was not something she took lightly. She adds, "People underestimate what a big decision this was for me. This is the next three or four years of my life. Being in the spotlight and the lack of freedom are the sort of things that held me back." »

Watson Plays Down "Stalker" Reports

15 June 2007 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix actress Emma Watson has played down reports she lived in fear for her life after a male stalker started talking to her at school. The 17-year-old star was alarmed when a man in his 20s - who cannot be named for legal reasons - managed to enter her English school and started talking to her about playing Hermione Granger in the wizard movies. However, Watson says it wasn't as serious as the British press had reported. She says, "That stalker stuff was exaggerated. To be honest, my friends were more freaked out that I was. I'm used to it. My friends were quite shocked by how blase I was about it." »

Warner Bros. Confirms Watson Won't Quit

26 March 2007 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Emma Watson has ended speculation about her future as Harry Potter's pal Hermione Granger by confirming to movie executives she'll be by the boy wizard's side for all seven films. Fans were left fretting last week when Watson's co-star Rupert Grint suggested, in a British newspaper article, that his pal might not play a part in all seven planned films. But now Warner Brothers bosses have confirmed the actress has no plans to quit the film franchise. In a statement released on Friday, Warner production president Jeff Robinov said, "We are thrilled and proud that Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert and Emma have chosen to complete the arc of their characters in the final two films." The franchise's fifth movie, Harry Potter & The Order Of The Phoenix will be released this summer - just as author J.K. Rowling's seventh and final Potter book, Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows, hits stores. The sixth Potter film, Harry Potter & The Half Blood Prince is scheduled to hit cinemas next summer. »

Movie studio Warner Bros. has played down reports Harry Potter star Emma Watson is quitting the film franchise, insisting they are "extremely confident" she will continue to play Hermione Granger. British newspaper News Of The World quoted the 16-year-old's Potter co-star Rupert Grint as saying, "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 producers Warner Bros says, "We're extremely confident that Emma will be back for films six and seven." Filming for the sixth movie, Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince, is scheduled to begin later this year. »
