OT - Harry Potter and Emma Watson
I was watching the news this morning and my local station reported that Emma Watson has said she will not sign a new contract for the movies, "even if they double her salary" and that her "relationship with her other two castmates is non-existant". Did anyone else catch this?

A quick Google News search brings up about 50/50 about whether or not she'll be back. She's currently in negotiations with Warner Brothers. about the last two movies.

I have been hearing the rumors for a while that she was probably going to be the defector if any of them left. I heard something about her wanting to move on to different things which isn't terribly surprising. Those kids probably aren't going to have much for acting careers for a long while, beyond stage acting I would guess. Not until they start looking a little less like their characters.

I just searched and this was posted an hour ago. I hope it's correct.

I'm not going to be too upset if she decides to leave the series. I've never liked her as Hermione. She doesn't fit the character very well, beyond looks.

I found this on MSN. I hope she comes back, it wouldn't be the same if they had to recast a character.

Really? I like her and think she fits well. I would be very sad if she left in the middle of the series because I think it would be difficult to recast and get the same feel.

Maybe it's because I read the books before watching the movies? I jumped into the whole HP fan thing late. Emma Watson makes Hermione seem whiny to me. Hermione is one of my favorite characters, so I could just be biased. It's hard after you have a certain image in your mind and they cast someone that doesn't come close.

Daniel Radcliffe though.. he is right on target of what I imagined Harry to be.

I like her, but don't think the looks fit--she's too pretty to be Hermione (at least pre-buck-teeth shrinking.)

I just hate seeing cast changes in stuff like this--wasn't a fan of Richard Harris as Dumbledore, like Michael Gambon slightly more but not a lot (I know, hereitc!) But I wish Harris could have been the only Dumbledore.

It's bad enough the directors keep changing.

I liked the first Dumbledoor MUCH better, but they really didn't have a choice on that one. I don't like Emma Watson as Hermione (you're right, Stine, she's too pretty). I also didn't like how the directors or whatever kept portraying Ron as nothing more than comic relief in the first two movies, so... As usual, the books are better.
