Emma Watson Announces She’ll Return to Acting Next Year
The entire world met Emma Watson in the early 2000s when she started playing Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. She reprised the role in all Harry Potter movies until 2011 when the franchise concluded with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2. After that, Watson acted in more movies, including the live-action remake of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast in 2017. Currently, her latest movie is Greta Gerwig’s Little Women, in which she played the supporting role of Meg March. After that, she decided to take a break from acting.
Now, after more than four years of acting retirement, Emma Watson has shared with The Financial Times that she’s set to begin filming a new movie in early 2024. Little Women finished filming in late 2018, so she’ll return to a movie set next year after almost four and a half years of pause. Watson explained that she quit acting because she “found really hard to go out and sell something she didn’t have very much control over.” It’s unknown what her next project will be, but we look forward to learning more about it.
Emma Charlotte Duerre Watson was born in Paris in 1990. She debuted on the big screen at the age of 10 when she played Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Her first non-Harry Potter movie was 2007’s The Tale of Despereaux, in which she played the voice role of Princess Pea.
Following the conclusion of the Harry Potter franchise in 2011, she starred in My Week with Marilyn, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Bling Ring. This Is the End, Noah, Colonia, Regression, Beauty and the Beast, The Circle, and Little Women. Last year, we watched her on Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts, an HBOMax reunion special of cast and crew that worked on the Harry Potter movie series.
