Harry Potter Star 'Quits Movies'

by | 18 March 2007

Harry Potter starlet Emma Watson, who plays know it all Hermione Granger, has reportedly refused to commit herself to the final two films in the series.

The 16-year-old actress has become tired of being known as "that girl from Harry Potter", the News of the World quotes teenage co-star Rupert Grint as saying.

Apparently Rupert, who has starred as the best friend of Daniel Radcliffe's eponymous Harry in the first five movies, and Daniel himself have moved apart from Emma after she rejected the chance to earn £2 million to film Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

"Daniel and I are distant from her now. We don't text or talk to her when we are not filming," he told the Sunday tabloid.

But other reports state that although Emma has not signed up for the final two films, producers Warner Bros still fully expect her to.

The fifth film version of JK Rowling's best-selling children's series, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, will reach cinema screens this summer.

And the book upon which the seventh and final movie will be based on, subtitled the Deathly Hallows, will be released on July 21st this year.
