According to Contact Music, Emma's pretty much done with being a one trick pony:
The 16-year-old actress has become tired of being known as "that girl from Harry Potter", the News of the World quotes teenage co-star Rupert Grint as saying.It's funny that for some people in the business, being known is what motivates them daily. For Emma, I guess she wants to explore other fields (Porn, perhaps?) and be known for other things.
Apparently Rupert, who has starred as the best friend of Daniel Radcliffe's eponymous Harry in the first five movies, and Daniel himself have moved apart from Emma after she rejected the chance to earn £2 million to film Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
However, this may all be nice and dandy, but if the studio says Emma plays Hermione, then she plays Hermione whether she likes it or not. The franchise is too profitable to start having characters just disappear... unless they get killed off perhaps?
Maybe we'll see Hermione finally bite it in the next flick. It would be a smash hit.
