Los Angeles: She shot to fame with the `Harry Potter` movies and now that the franchise is coming to an end, actress Emma Watson says she is trying to find herself a new identity.
The British actress has been playing the role of Hermione Granger since she was 10 and says she has lived in a ‘bubble’ all these years, reported Huffington Post.
"I have had no control over my life. I have lived in a complete bubble. They found me and picked me for the part. And now I`m desperately trying to find my way through it," said Watson.
The 21-year-old admits that she is very much like her character, the brainy, neurotic and loyal Hermione. But shedding that role means getting to expand, spread her wings, find out what else she can be.
"Hermione is so close to who I am as a person that I`ve never really had to research a role. I`m literally rediscovering what it means to be an actress," she said.
Watson has signed on to star in Stephen Chbosky`s `The Perks of Being a Wallflower`, her first film post the wizard franchise.
