It's hard to imagine Emma Watson ever fading into the background - but according to the Harry Potter actress that's exactly what she wants to do.

The 19-year-old is busy preparing for the end of the Harry Potter franchise and her start at U.S. university Columbia in September.

And, despite her worldwide fame, she has revealed she hopes to be just another 'anonymous' student.

‘I’m so excited. Living in London, it’s hard to be anonymous,' she told Elle magazine.

'But hopefully, on some campus somewhere, I’ll fade into the background a bit.'

But if the photos accompanying the article are anything to go by, fashion fan Emma will stand out wherever she goes.

The rock chick-style shoot shows her with backcombed hair and dramatic eye makeup, showing off her figure in leggings, heels and space-age suits.

Emma, who lives with a flatmate in Hampstead, had considered taking up a place at Cambridge University, after receiving straight As in her A'levels.

But she reveals: ‘I’m very aware that with Cambridge, people would find that interesting.

'Cambridge is so high profile in itself and then, on top of that, people don’t really go out in Cambridge because it’s so small, so I’ll be going out in London and then that’s just the same thing.

'I definitely am attracted to the States for that reason.’

With the end of filming on the Harry Potter series of eight films, Emma will be saying goodbye to her 'second family' on the Watford set.

‘It’s going to sound dramatic, but I feel like it’s going to be my life over as I know it,' she said.

'My whole life has been about Harry Potter and then all of that will shut down and I don’t know what it will be like.

'I go to university in September – I’ll be doing bits and bobs at Christmas, but September feels like my cut-off point, the moment when I’ll really stop.’

And, having already banked more than ?10 million, Emma isn't certain she will return to acting.

‘At the moment I feel like I need to go away and figure out what I want to do and be myself for a bit,’ she said.

‘Does that sound strange? I just want to take a step back from it and not rush into stuff.

'I need university to give me that break. People think because I’m going to university I’m never going to act again, but it’s actually me. I want to figure out how I feel about everything first. Maybe I’ll keep acting, maybe I won’t.

'I just want to find something where I feel I have to do this. Maybe that’ll happen when I read a script. It felt like that with Hermione. I want to feel like that again.’

But if that doesn't happen Emma already has another career in mind - she says she would enjoy being a make-up artist. Mail Online reported.
