"I basically took two years out and stepped as far away from it as I could. I mean the 'Harry Potter' films were still coming out but I took time to really try and figure out who I was and what I wanted to do. I even considered not being an actress," a magazine quoted Watson as saying.
Watson is currently finding it challenging to make the audience connect with her new character Nicki of the film 'The Bling Ring', which is releasing on June 22.
"I realised very quickly that my biggest challenge was trying to get the audience to identify with her, even if it's just for a second. She's a surreal, delusional, eccentric character who is at times very unsympathetic," she said.
