Emma Watson has her eyes on a new prize and it happens to be BEHIND the camera.
The actress known for iconic roles such as Hermione Granger, Belle and Meg March just announced she will be working behind the camera from now on.
Okay, don’t stress too much yet, she will also continue acting IN FRONT of the camera, but she is taking this opportunity to learn how things play out behind the lens.
Emma Watson’s a camera operator now!
In an Instagram post published on Tuesday, October 26, the ‘Harry Potter’ actress posted a series of photos of herself operating a camera.
“Getting behind the camera and learning how it works is about the most empowering thing I’ve learned in lockdown,” she captioned the photo.

“As a young woman, I always thought the most glamorous and exciting thing would be to be someone’s “muse”; and of course as women we are inspiring,” she continued, “but wow it’s something else to be able to tell your own story and other people’s’. 💖”
Emma got support from some of Hollywood’s biggest heavy hitters.
Reese Witherspoon commented, “Yes!! I Love this. Go E! ❤️.”
Justin Timberlake gave the post a double tap and liked it. Social media star Benny Drama also showed Emma some love with a double tap.
The British star’s announcement comes just days after the director of photography on the “Rust” movie set was accidentally shot and killed and the director was badly wounded.
Tragedy struck the set last Thursday, October 21.
Souza issued a statement this past weekend while he was recovering from his injuries.
“She was kind, vibrant, incredibly talented, fought for every inch and always pushed me to be better,” Souza said in a statement to NBC News. “My thoughts are with her family at this most difficult time.”
Halyna’s husband, Matt Hutchins, broke his silence as well in a Twitter post.
Halyna inspired us all with her passion and vision, and her legacy is too meaningful to encapsulate in words. Our loss is enormous, and we ask that the media please respect my family’s privacy as we process our grief. We thank everyone for sharing images and stories of her life. pic.twitter.com/LgEp4XVkja
