Los Angeles: ``Harry Potter`` star Emma Watson is planning to take a break from acting. The 20-year-old actress, who recently finished shooting the final two films in the Harry Potter series, feels she wants to do something else for a while, ShowbizSpy reported online.

"I think I need to find some real belief in myself away from (acting). I know that I can play Hermione but I don`t know.

I really think I need to recharge my batteries and go and be me for a bit," Watson said. The British actress admits she made many good friends while filming for the hit franchise.

"I really got on with Emma Thompson. I loved how she was so down-to-earth, so kind and she doesn``t ignore anyone.

She pays attention to everyone from the sound guy to the director. I really loved her to bits.

Maggie Smith is an absolute sweetie. She sends me chocolate and a note at Christmas," Watson said.
