It looks as though British beauty, Emma Watson, will be leaving the American university and transferring to another in the fall reports The New York Times. The actress, who is famed for her role as Hermione in the Harry Potter franchise, has been attending the American university since the fall of 2009.
Her spokesperson, Vanessa Davies, denied any reports that Watson was being bullied out of the prestigious school, saying instead she is choosing to leave to pursue courses not offered at the university.
Davies also added that the 21-year-old actress “has absolutely loved her time at Brown” and has made many good friends at the Providence, Rhode Island university.
In March, Watson posted on her official website that she would be taking time off from her studies to do promotion work for the final instalment of the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
She wrote: “As you know, I love Brown and I love studying pretty much more than anything but recently I’ve had so much to juggle that being a student and fulfilling my other commitments has become a little impossible. I’ve decided to take a bit of time off to completely finish my work on Harry Potter… I will still be working towards my degree… it’s just going to take me a semester or two longer than I thought.”
The final installation, which is due out this summer, is undoubtedly an important focus for the newly 21-year-old actress. Though the Harry Potter series was Watson’s first big career break, the actress has since gone on to star in ad campaigns for the ever-iconic British label, Burberry, designed a fair trade fashion collection for top designer, Alberta Ferretti, and most recently, scored a coveted spot as the new face of luxury beauty brand, Lancome.
Though Davies did not make mention of which university Watson will be transferring to, something tells me that the decision won’t impact the young beauty’s flourishing career too much.
