Actress Emma Watson has played Hermione Granger eight films of the Harry Potter series, which is ending with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. She looks back at her time spent on the sets of Harry Potter and feels that she has got more education in acting than any school could get.
Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Emma Watson has opened up on her 10 years experience on the sets of Harry Potter. "Watching the new film I feel I've really learned something in these 10 years. For the first time I really felt like an actress and I have an idea of what I can be as an actress. And that is very exciting," THR quotes the actress as saying.
Emma Watson adds, "I've worked with animals, special effects, I've done some serious stunts and I've worked with some of the best actors and actresses in the world. I couldn't have had better training. I feel I've graduated from the most difficult, hard-core film school of all time and I can't believe how lucky I've been. Now I'm ambitious to use what I've learned to do good work."
Meanwhile, Emma Watson admits that she had a very tough time on the sets because she was under the control of the filmmakers. "Not a single second of the day was in my power. I was told what time I'd get picked up, what time I could eat and when I could go to the bathroom. I have spent more of my life being someone else than I have being myself."
