Despite apparently looking forward to the “relative anonymity” of campus life, Watson was given a hero’s welcome when she turned up at the prestigious American university on the weekend.

Unlike her science-girl character in the Potter series, Watson is going the arts route, majoring in English Literature.

She is reckoned to be have agreed a deal with film producers to fit filming of the next Potter film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, in with university holidays.
