Emma Watson: Stalked and Unemployed
Actress Emma Watson, who is most famous for playing Hermione Granger in the "Harry Potter" movies says she was stalked at her British school by an obsessed fan and from the looks of things - she won't be returing for the final two Potter films.
Sky News said a source told them that the 16-year-old actress was recently approached by a man in his 20s who had been following her into her open lectures at her school.
"The man actually gate-crashed her school," the source said. "She was very alarmed and worried."
While the man was questioning Watson about her work in the Harry Potter films, the police evidently showed up to question him on why he was following the teenaged star.
Watson has hired a body guard to attend classes with her now to prevent future incidents like this one from occurring.
Meanwhile, according to a report in the News of the World, Watson has decided not to sign up for the final two Harry Potter movies.
"Emma doesn't want to do it any more," her co-star Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley explained. "She's tired of being known as ‘that girl from Harry Potter'. Daniel (Radcliffe) and I are distant from her now. We don't text or talk to her when we are not filming."
The paper reports it has received confirmation from Warner Brothers that Emma has not signed up for the final films.
Emma is currently in negotiations with WB to do the last two movies.
