BEIJING, March 9(Xinhuanet) --"Harry Potter" star Emma Watson said she is taking a rest from her courses at Brown University to concentrate on her film career, according to a message she posted on her website.

The 20-year old actress Watson, who plays the role as Harry Potter’s friend Hermione Granger, posted a statement to her website announcing that she will take some time out of her university to finish off the “Potter films.”

Watson enrolled at Brown in September 2009 and the university is currently in the middle of its semester. On the other hand, the final chapter of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" will be put on worldwide this July.

Facing such situation, Watson feels that she has bitten off a little more than she can chew.

"I love Brown and I love studying pretty much more than anything but recently I've had so much to juggle that being a student and fulfilling my other commitments has become a little impossible," Watson wrote.

"I've decided to take a bit of time off to completely finish my work on 'Harry Potter' (the last one comes out this summer) and to focus on my other professional and acting projects. I will still be working toward my degree...it's just going to take me a semester or two longer than I thought," she continued.

Besides her acting, Watson has also been busy with some fashion design projects.

Meanwhile, Watson’s London spokesman refused to elaborate on whether the actress has already pulled out of classes or if her break will begin after the end of this semester.

However, judging by the current circumstances, the former is more likely.
