Jodie Foster did it, Natalie Portman did it. I think it’s entirely possible to juggle university with filming… I actually think going to university will make me a better actress.

There are actresses who don’t know about things like doing their own laundry and getting a bus. I’m not going to be like that. For me, this is just the beginning. I’ve only shown a little bit of what I can do. There is so much more to come. – Emma Watson

It was such a big part of my growing up, it almost feels surreal that I’ll get to dance to ‘Be Our Guest’ and sing ‘Something There’. My six-year-old self is on the ceiling – heart bursting. Time to start some singing lessons. I can’t wait for you to see it. – Emma Watson

And my experiences could all belong to someone else. – Emma Watson

Ignoring fame was my rebellion, in a funny way. I was insistent on being normal and doing normal things. It probably wasn’t advisable to go to college in America and room with a complete stranger.

I don’t want the fear of failure to stop me from doing what I really care about. – Emma Watson

I have felt for the last 10 years I have had this battle; I’ve been fighting so hard to have an education. It’s been this uphill struggle. I was Warner Bros’ pain in the butt. I was their scheduling conflict. I was the one who made life difficult. – Emma Watson

I still have so much to learn, but as I progress, I hope to bring more of my individual knowledge, experience and awareness to this role. – Emma Watson

I paint and I draw, and I write, and I do other things too, and recently some people at school were asking if I’d ever publish any of my work.
