London: After the huge success of the `Harry Potter` movie franchise, people did not think that actress Emma Watson will be able to take up a different role, but she has proved everyone wrong.
"For a while, I kind of bought into the hype of, `Will they ever be able to play anything else?` It gave me a sense of paralysis and stage fright for a while," Emma told Entertainment Weekly magazine.
"And then a professor told me that they didn`t think I should act, either. So I was really grappling with it and wasn`t feeling good about it. And then... It got so bad and people had put me in a box so much that it started pissing me off. I suddenly wanted to prove them wrong. It gave me fuel, in a way. I`m not sure why that shift happened," she said.
After wrapping up the `Harry Potter` films, Watson continued her career with films like `The Perks of Being a Wallflower`, `This is the End` and `Bling Ring`.
