Emma Watson has been incredibly busy after wrapping her decade long role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series – first, going against type as rebellious teen spirit Sam in the critically acclaimed ‘Perks of Being a Wallflower’, and then appearing in two productions directed by film auteurs, ‘Noah’ by Darren Aronofsky, and ‘The Bling Ring’ by Sofia Coppola.
‘The Bling Ring’ is based on a true story of the fame-obsessed thieves who were caught from stealing from Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and other Hollywood stars. The film will star Watson along with Taissa Farmiga and a host of newcomers, and is set to be released in 2013.
When talking about how she prepared for the role, Watson has previously said, “I just watched a ton of reality TV. I was doing an English course [at Brown University]. So I would go from reading Virginia Woolf to [watching] Kim Kardashian. I kind of loved it, this mix of super-high and super-low culture. I think it was a nice balance.”
Previous photos of Watson in character have already been released, but some new photos showing a more contemplative side to her. The photos appear in Premiere Magazine from France, along with a short synopsis and a tentative release date of June. The images can also be viewed here and here, and thanks to Emma-Watson.Net [and HG Girl on Fire] for the images.
