Emma Watson breaks studies to focus on acting
LONDON (AP) - March 8, 2011 (WPVI) -- She played a girl who studied hard. But "Harry Potter" actress Emma Watson says she is going to take a break from her working on her degree to focus on her film career.
The actress - who plays the character of bookworm Hermione Granger - said Tuesday that she had found it hard to juggle her blossoming film career with her studies.
Watson enrolled to study literature at Brown University in Rhode Island in 2009. She says she still plans to finish her studies but will take some extra semesters to complete her degree.
Watson has just finished filming "Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows: Part 2" which will premier in London in July. She has also just finished filming "My Week With Marilyn", opposite U.S. actress Michelle Williams as Marilyn Monroe.
