Warner Bros confirm Watson won't quit Potter

Actress Emma Watson has ended speculation about her future as Harry Potter's pal Hermione Granger by confirming to movie executives she'll be by the boy wizard's side for all seven films.

Actress Emma Watson has ended speculation about her future as Harry Potter's pal Hermione Granger by confirming to movie executives she'll be by the boy wizard's side for all seven films.

Fans were left fretting last week when Watson's Harry Potter co-star Rupert Grint suggested, in a British newspaper article, that his pal might not play a part in all seven planned films.

But now Warner Brothers bosses have confirmed the actress has no plans to quit the film franchise.

In a statement released on Friday, Warners production president Jeff Robinov said: "We are thrilled and proud that Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert and Emma have chosen to complete the arc of their characters in the final two films.

The franchise's fifth movie, Harry Potter & The Order of the Phoenix will be released this summer - just as author JK Rowling's seventh and final Potter book, Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows, hits stores.

The sixth Potter film, Harry Potter & The Half Blood Prince is scheduled to hit cinemas next summer.
