New Telegraph interview with Emma Watson

The Telegraph has published a new interview with actress Emma Watson – her first, and arguably one of the most detailed, outside of the Harry Potter franchise. Her latest venture, Ballet Shoes – due to air in the UK on BBC 1 on December 26th – is discussed, as well as her ambition to be a successful actress. Emma comments that:

“I was so nervous I nearly turned [Ballet Shoes] down. I'd just finished the last Harry Potter film, and it was the summer holidays and I hadn't had a break, but then I thought, 'I actually really want to be an actress, a proper actress who makes it her career'”.

Sensibly, she also has a backup plan to continue with her studies, and has applied to read English and philosophy at prestigious Cambridge University. “I feel it’s terribly important to continue with my education, in case acting doesn’t work out for me”, she says.
