Watsons varsity stage debut

LOS ANGELES: Harry Potter star Emma Watson received a standing ovation for her role in a student play on her debut university performance.

The 19-year-old played Olga Sergeyevna Prozorova in an adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s Three Sisters earlier this month at Brown University in Rh-ode Island, where she is studying, reports imd-b.com.

“She was nervous beforehand but was faultless. She has been juggling coursework with rehearsals and learning lines. She’s had a lot on her plate,” said a source close to her. “She was over the moon that every show was a full house. She also made some new friends,” the source added.
