Emma Watson confirmed for new film

The actress who plays Hermione in the Potter films announced on her official website that she'll be playing a lead role in the upcoming film “Ballet Shoes” for BBC 1:

Emma will play the part of “Pauline”, the eldest of 3 orphaned sisters who lead a sheltered life until they begin at the Children's Academy of Dancing and Stage Training. Only then do they begin to discover their special talents and extraordinary ambitions.

The film will also star Richard Griffiths and Robert Hardy (who play Vernon Dursley and Fudge in the Potter films, respectively). Look for it on the BBC around Christmas time!
