Emma Watson to take horseriding lessons

Los Angeles: Too much action here! "Harry Potter" actress Emma Watson is ready to take lessons in horseriding and sword fighting for her role in "The Queen of the Tearling".

The 24-year-old has been cast as Kelsea Glynn in the upcoming film adaptation of Erika Johansen`s action novel. She is being trained to do her own stunts.

She will also be trained in snaring rabbits and climbing trees, reports dailymail.co.uk.

Her character Kelsea is that of a fearless girl, who is removed from her home aged 19 to take her place as ruler of a fictional post-utopian country with dark secrets.

Watson will sport a no make-up look to feature as a more realistic and athletic heroine.

"With Emma, it`s hard to be that plain, but she`ll be playing someone who has a physicality," said one of her co-stars.

The film`s screenplay is being penned by "The Revenant" writer Mark L. Smith. David Heyman will produce the movie, a director for which is yet to be locked.
