Emma Watson Retirement? A word on the social block was that Emma Watson of Harry Potter fame is going to retire from acting and going to start her family. Even though there was no official confirmation of the news from the actor, her fans seemed to be devastated just by the speculations. However, the actor’s manager has confirmed that she has no plans to retire at the moment.
Watson was inactive on social media for quite some time, which fueled the rumours that the actor might be quitting her acting career to start a family. Responding to the rumours, Jason Weinberg, her manager said in a statement on Thursday, “Emma’s social media accounts are dormant but her career isn’t.”
The conjectures on her possible retirement started from a DailyMail report which had Watson’s agent saying that she is has gone “Dormant”. This made social media users and interpret many things and it is safe to say that they felt heartbroken. While some supported her decision and encouraged her to do whatever she chooses to do with her life others just couldn’t let their Hermoine go away so soon. One fan even wrote a long letter expressing their love and admiration for Watson.
The user wrote to Watson that she made a huge difference in their life and that they remembered her even in the most difficult times and found themselves smiling thinking about how “determined you were”. “You are the one who makes me smile every day even though I have a screwed-up mind and it reminds me of not giving up on my dreams, I remembered you even when I knew I wasn’t going to make it, but even so I tried,” the letter added. The user ended her Twitter thread-cum-letter by saying, “So, I just wanted to say that if you’re happy I’m also happy and I’ll always be supporting you in any decision.”
Watson was recently seen in Greta Gerwig’s Little Women in which she played the role of the eldest sister Meg March. She also starred in Beauty and the Beast film in 2017 in which she decided to not wear a corset.
