Emma's Hermione fears

Emma Watson says she is worried about being typecast as Hermione Granger for ever.

The 15-year-old Harry Potter star told the Mirror: "My biggest fear is getting stereotyped. I want to do other things."

But she added: "I would hate to have another actress in the role. There is so much of me in her.

Of course, JK Rowling wrote the character, but in film terms, I had a part in creating her."

Emma will appear in the fourth movie - Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - this November.

But she recently landed her first film role away from Potter. She will star in Airborn, out next May, as a girl who goes on an adventure after her cruise ship is attacked by pirates.

She added: "
Not all kids get f***ed up. It's not that child actors are doomed.

"I am careful to separate the two. There is a professional life and a private life. I never mix the two."
