Watch Emma Watson Explain How 'Regression' Made Her a More Confident Actor

May 11, 2016

Emma Watson Regression

Nearly every young actor who grows up a central part of a massively popular, teen-friendly film franchise faces a dilemma. What do they do once the franchise ends? Audiences the world over have pretty much only ever known them as one type of character. Do they cling to that image? Or do they do something radically different?

Almost always they opt for something radically different. It happened with the heartthrobs at the center of Twilight. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson both moved on to make some really interesting, stirring indie movies. And now it's happening with the cast of Harry Potter. This year sees Daniel Radcliffe playing a corpse (Swiss Army Man) and Rupert Grint playing a con-man (Moonwalkers), but the winner of the most challenging role is Emma Watson. I

n the new thriller Regression, Watson plays a young woman whose rape puts her at the center of a detective's investigation into a satanic cult. So, yeah, that's just a touch more adult than casting charm spells at Hogwarts.

We've got an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip from Regression, which hit Blu-ray and DVD this week, of Watson explaining what drew her to take on such difficult material, and why she felt comfortable taking it on. Check it out.
