Emma Watson on her American accent, school, and her new roles

Emma Watson is all set to shed her image as goody-two-shoes Hermione Granger, showing everyone her acting chops in the upcoming 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower', based on the bestselling coming-of-age- YA novel.  Emma plays Sam in Perks, and her character couldn't be more different than the one we are used to seeing her in for so much of her life. 
 
 
In a recent interview with New York Times 'T' Style Magazine, Emma has opened up about how she practices her American Accent, how her university education is going, and her future roles.
 
On honing her vowels when it comes to her American accent:
“My grandma said — when I was really young and I’d sing along to the radio — why do you sing in an American accent? I guess it was because a lot of the music I was listening to had American vocalists. And that was something Steve said to me as well: try singing the lines in an American accent. That kind of opened me up. Then I worked with a dialogue coach and I just put in the time to really, really listen and just go over it and over it and over it until I could do it without thinking about it too hard. And I just knew it was really important.”
 
 
On her decision to wait so long to make other movies aside from "Harry Potter":
“I think at first I didn’t because I was always either studying or filming, I didn’t have time to go off and do other films or other things to sort of show people that, Oh, she is not just Hermione, she is an actress and she can go and do these other parts and roles. . . . I didn’t, because I was so focused on, you know, on my GCSEs and on my AS and on my A-levels and then getting in to university and then whatever, I didn’t really have time to do any of that.”
 
On her collegiate experience at Brown:
“My first two years at Brown weren’t easy, not because I was bullied or because anyone gave me a particularly hard time, but just because, you know, without the collegiate system . . . and at Brown everyone does completely different things and very much chooses their own path, which is great, but it’s also much more difficult, too. You’re not with a group of people all the time at one time.”
 
On juggling multiple roles as of late:
“I guess weirdly in my head I knew what I wanted, I didn’t know how it would or if it would ever happen. But before ‘Bling Ring,’ I said I’d really wanted to meet Sofia Coppola and — this is before I knew that she had a film in mind — ended up meeting her. And Darren was someone who actually I met a good year ago. And then I’m doing a film with Guillermo [del Toro] next summer, and I went to him and said Warner Brothers have given me the script for ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ but the only way I’d really want to do it is if you did it. And then miraculously he said, ‘Oh, funnily enough ‘Beauty and the Beast’ is my favorite fairy tale, I can’t let anyone else do this, I’ll start putting a team together.’”
