Goodbye Hermione: Emma Watson lands adult role

Friday September 24, 2010

Emma Watson is moving on from Hogwarts after winning her first grown-up role since Harry Potter.

The 20-year-old has been offered a part alongside a stellar cast, including Dame Judi Dench and Kenneth Branagh in My Week with Marilyn.

The film documents the tense interaction between Laurence Olivier and Marilyn Monroe during the shooting of The Prince and the Showgirl.

Emma is set to play Lucy, a wardrobe assistant working behind the scenes on the 1957 movie.

The young star has also recently branched out from acting, finding success as a Burberry model

And with her new cropped hairstyle, it seems she's keen to leave behind her school-girl image.

Filming begins in a few days, meaning the fresh-faced actress won't be spending too much time away from university in the US.
