Emma Watson is taking horseback riding to prepare for her next 'The Queen of the Tearling'
Emma Watson is ready to take lessons in horseriding and sword fighting for her role in 'The Queen of the Tearling'.
The 24-year-old has been cast as Kelsea Glynn in the upcoming film adaptation of Erika Johansen's action novel.
She is being trained to do her own stunts. She will also be trained in snaring rabbits and climbing trees. Her character, Kelsea, is that of a fearless girl, who is removed from her home aged 19 to take her place as ruler of a fictional post-utopian country with dark secrets.
Watson will sport a no make-up look to feature as a more realistic and athletic heroine. "With Emma, it's hard to be that plain, but she'll be playing someone who has a physicality," said one of her co-stars.
The film's screenplay is being penned by The Revenant writer Mark L. Smith. David Heyman will produce the movie, a director for which is yet to be locked.
