CONGRATULATIONS to Emma! I loved the book. It’s a nice first role for her after HP. Her character Sam is a special person. GREAT CHOICE Emma!

Not to be a downer on what is playing out to be a great and successful career for Emma Watson, but I thought she said she didn’t really want to act any more and if she did it would be in small roles? Maybe I’m mistaken though…
