For Emma Watson, will there be life after Harry Potter?

Considering the talent and maturity of this actress, who recently took a break from studying at Brown University, the answer is clearly yes. But she isn't sure what that will entail.

"Hermione is so close to who I am as a person that I've never really had to research a role," Watson says in the latest issue of Vogue. "I'm literally rediscovering what it means to be an actress... I've probably earned the right to screw up a few times...  I don't want the fear of failure to stop me from doing what I really care about."

Elsewhere in the interview, Watson touches on Daniel Radcliffe (watch him perform on Broadway HERE), romance and more. Excerpts are below.

On life as a key component with the Harry Potter franchise: "I have had no control over my life... I have lived in a complete bubble. They found me and picked me for the part. And now I'm desperately trying to find my way through it."

On Radcliffe: "He understood what his role was... not just as an actor but as the leading man in this enormous franchise. And I think that was almost more important in a way. He held it all together. I am very grateful for him."

On love: "I'm a feminist, but I think that romance has been taken away a bit for my generation. I think what people connect with in novels is this idea of an overpowering, encompassing love - and it being more important and special than anything and everything else... I would love to not date someone in the same industry as me. Otherwise it becomes what it means to everyone else."
