It may not be well known, but the British actress enrolled at the US’ prestigious Brown University on a Literature course (what else would you expect her to study!). She was previously expected to study at Yale, but in September, 2009, Watson enrolled at another Ivy League college, Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. And although she loves it, she also wants to maintain her acting career throughout her studies.
“As you know, I love Brown and I love studying pretty much more than anything but recently I’ve had so much to juggle that being a student and fulfilling my other commitments has become a little impossible.”
She’s talking, of course, partly about her work to promote the final instalment of the “Harry Potter” franchise: “Deathly Hallows: Part 2”, which hits the cinemas in summer. Watson plays one of the movie’s main characters, Hermione Granger. But she is also taking the opportunity away from college to film other roles.
“I will still be working towards my degree… it’s just going to take me a semester or two longer than I thought,” said the 20-year-old actress.
Emma has already filmed her part in “My Summer With Marilyn” which is also to be released later this year, and she has signed up for another movie, ‘Perks of Being a Wallflower’. As well as her several acting roles, she has announced that she will be bringing out a new clothing line, Pure Threads in conjunction with Alberta Ferretti.
It sounds like Emma Watson doesn’t have time to study! But what would you do if you were her: get yourself an education or carrying on acting? Would you miss Emma if she wasn’t on your screen?
