It's been four years since the world last saw Emma Watson in a new film. Prior to that, the actress had appeared on screen almost every year since her worldwide debut in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (2001). Unfortunately, it appears that this had an effect on her. In a recent interview, Watson admitted that she chose to stop acting because it no longer brought her joy.

"I wasn't very happy if I'm being honest," she admitted. "I think I felt a bit caged."

She reflected on the negative effects of her job even more. “The thing I found really hard was that I had to go out and sell something that I really didn’t have very much control over,” Watson conveyed. “I was held accountable in a way that I began to find really frustrating because I didn’t have a voice, I didn’t have a say.”

When asked if she would return to acting, Watson responded clearly. “Yes, absolutely,” she replied. However, she isn’t in a hurry to do so. “I’m happy to sit and wait for the next right thing. I love what I do. It’s finding a way to do it where I don’t have to fracture myself into different faces and people. And I just don’t want to switch into robot mode anymore,” she told. This isn't a one-time case.

#3. Will Emma Watson return in the Harry Potter franchise?

Warner Bros. Discovery announced that the Harry Potter saga will be adapted as a series, which will air exclusively on Max. The CEO of the studio, David Zaslav confessed that he would love to adapt The Cursed Child to the screen. The eighth book, which revolves around the adventure of Harry Potter's son Albus and Braco Malfoy's Scorpius, would be the perfect project for Emma Watson, Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Tom Felton to return to the franchise, this time as adults.

Even though it seems like most of the actors aren't interested in reprising those roles, it's still possible that it might happen in the future. For the time being, the previously announced series, which has no set release date, will allow fans to get to know new versions of Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Draco.
