‘Harry Potter’ is not the end of my career: Emma Watson

London: Actress Emma Watson does not understand why people are treating the end of the `Harry Potter` series as a bad omen as she is eagerly waiting for new opportunities.

The 20-year-old actress, who starred as wizard kid Hermione Granger in the franchise for more than ten years said that she was sad but at the same time felt a huge sense of relief as she can`t wait to see what future holds for her, Contactmusic reported.

"People keep saying to me, “So this is the end, how do you feel about it being the end?” And I`m like, “It really doesn`t feel that to me.” It feels like the beginning. It`s actually really an exciting time for me rather than this kind of the end.”

"I can`t stand everyone calling it the end. I`m 20 years old. Seriously. It feels like I`ve been handed my life back, like I`ve been let off a leash," said Watson.

While the British beauty is looking forward to a future without `Harry Potter` she is clueless about the career path after she completes her education.

"People are constantly like, “What are you going to do?” “What is your career plan?” “What direction do you want it to take?” “What roles do you have lined up?” And I`m just like, “Sorry, I haven`t got everything mapped out, I`m only 20.” And they look at me as if I`d have this perfectly calculated life plan and how I want my career to look. And I really don`t know yet. I`m still open to possibilities," she added.
