Emma Watson Almost Quit Harry Potter

Emma Watson Almost Quit Harry Potter

Emma Watson holds onto her Winter collection Burberry bag as she weaves her way through LaGuardia airport in NYC on Tuesday morning (November 16).

The 20-year-old actress made an early morning appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly before heading out. The night before, Emma stepped out at the Deathly Hallows premiere.

Emma recently shared with MTV about almost quitting the franchise. She shared, “It was mainly to do with scheduling and I had a real fight on my hands to ensure that I was able to go to university and I was able to sit my A-levels, because the schedule they handed to me didn’t really allow for any of that and I just wasn’t prepared to let it go. They essentially moved the ‘Harry Potter’ film schedule around my exam dates, which was amazing. It all worked out.”

    Sure glad that worked out.

    University will always be there but Harry Potter is a once in a life time opportunity.

    LOVE her jacket and she never said once in that interview that she almost quit.

    I wish the media would stop saying that. Emma just took longer to sign up for the other films, because they had to work around her school schedule. Easy as simple.

    Emma you’re perfect

  • Mina

    I like her, but I think she forgot that the world is used to seeing her as Hermiona, and that she had to do her part as the character and for the fans.
    Of course now she can move on and do other movies.

  • Happy_Evil_Dude

    Yes, it had nothing to do with coaxing more money out of Warner Bros, right, sure.

    I think people come at from the wrong perspective. How amazing is it that she is putting her education first?
    Yeah Harry Potter will be there and as she said, it was not an easy decision. But it was not as if she was going to quit. It was longer to negotiate for her. I wish people would stop over exaggerating it. It’s not like she hates the films. She loves them and wanted it to work out just as much as the fans which is why she fought so hard to keep both priorities in check.

    @Mina she didn’t HAVE to do anything. After all, it’s her decision. I find that Emma is incredibly smart. Going to college is an important phase in a person’s life. I bet that if that Lohan actress had gotten a decent education she wouldn’t have started circling the drain.

    No actually – she’s already had the Harry Potter experience six times, so it’s clearly NOT once in a lifetime. It’s much more important that she finishes her degree and her desire to do so makes her much more worthy of respect. She’ll be a more capable and considered actor with a wider breadth of experience, who’s subsequently capable of handling much more challenging roles. I’m glad that she’s aspiring to be more than just a boring fashion idol who has too much plastic surgery and too many divorces/breakups.
