Emma Watson is among BSC‘s favorite young role models. She has some news and we’d be amiss not to deliver it!

Over at the actress’s official website (emmawatson.com), Watson has a message for her fans.

Hi everyone

As you know, I love Brown and I love studying pretty much more than anything but recently I’ve had so much to juggle that being a student AND fulfilling my other commitments has become a little impossible.

I’ve decided to take a bit of time off to completely finish my work on Harry Potter (the last one comes out this summer) and to focus on my other professional and acting projects. I will still be working towards my degree… it’s just going to take me a semester or two longer than I thought : )

Hope you are all well! Thank you for all your continuing support.

Emma xx

We support you, Emma!

Watson is, of course, one of the stars of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. HP7, part one, is due out on DVD and BluRay April 15th, with part two hitting theaters July 15th. Watson is also rumored to be the new face of Lancome. Other potential projects include The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Incarceron, while her work in My Week with Marilyn is already confirmed with a pic to prove it.
