Harry Potter star Emma Watson is reportedly taking a break from acting.

Watson’s agent told the Daily Mail that she is “dormant” from her career and won’t be taking on any new projects for the foreseeable future.

She is also reportedly looking to spend more time with rumored fiancé Leo Robinton, who she has been dating since 2019.

The Harry Potter star previously dated actor Chord Overstreet but the couple broke up in May 2018.

Watson, who is 30, refused to join the press tour of her last film “Little Women” with fellow cast mates and only showed up for the movie’s premiere.

The movie also starred Ireland’s Saoirse Ronan, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, Laura Dern, Timothée Chalamet and Meryl Streep.

“Emma’s reps told Sony that she would only do the premiere,” a movie source told us at the time. “We don’t really know what happened, if she wasn’t happy with the movie or fell out with the cast.”

“Little Women” went on to be nominated for five Oscars and won one for costume design.
