Emma Watson 'Almost Quit' Harry Potter

The actress has revealed that she nearly left the movie for her studies...

Emma Watson has confessed that she almost quit her role in Harry Potter to concentrate on her education.

The 20-year old actress, who plays Hermione Granger in the wizard flicks, claims that if filming for Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince hadn't been rescheduled, she would have been forced to leave the film franchise.

Watson told our US Team: "I always try and make decisions in my life based on what's right for me and I just try and be true to myself."

"It was mainly to do with scheduling and I had a real fight on my hands to ensure that I was able to go to university and I was able to sit my A-levels, because the schedule they handed to me didn't really allow for any of that and I just wasn't prepared to let it go."

Emma, who was named as the sexiest actress under 30 earlier this week, added: "They essentially moved the Harry Potter film schedule around my exam dates, which was amazing. It all worked out."

The latest installment of Harry Potter, The Deathly Hallows, hits cinemas on 19th December.
