With the final installment of the Harry Potter movie series coming to a close, the cast is moving on with their respective careers. “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” will not be the last time Emma Watson, Daniel Radcliffe or Rupert Grint perform for their fans through various entertainment outlets.
Emma Watson, 21, has played the role of Hermione Granger since her acting debut as a nine-year-old in the first film of the saga. However, Emma now aims to place a greater focus on her education.
“ I'm going back to school in the fall,” Watson told Teen Hollywood. “I've got two years left until I complete my degree.
The actress will attend Oxford in the fall to study English for one year. She also has a few movies in the works.
“I just finished a film called The Perks of Being a Wallflower which was just the most incredible experience,” Watson said. The movie will be an adaptation of a Stephen Chbosky novel.
The former Potter actress will also act in a movie about Marilyn Monroe’s life called “My Week With Marilyn.” Watson will co-star along with Michelle Williams, Toby Jones and Eddie Redmayne to re-tell the story of the famous actress and entertainer.
Rupert Grint, Watson’s 22-year-old Potter co-star who appears as Ron Weasley, will star in a dramatic WWII movie titled “Comrade”. Grint has at least three movies lined up, including a horror film called “Cross Country” and a biopic about the life of an Olympic ski jumper.
“I’ve always loved acting and doing the other films in between, and I want to do more of that,” Grint said in the AmNY newspaper.
Daniel Radcliffe, the 21-year-old who played Harry Potter, plans to move off of the big screen and onto the big stage. Radcliffe will sing on Broadway in the Tony award winning, “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.”
However, he does plan on making further appearances in movies. At the beginning of next year, Radcliffe will star in “The Woman in Black.”
