After the last Harry Potter film, she landed roles in My Week with Marylin, The Bling Ring, and The Perks of Being a Wildflower.

In 2017, Emma starred as Belle in the 2017 romantic fantasy Beauty and the Beast. A couple of years later, she played the role of Meg March in the coming of age film Little Women.

This piece will look at what Emma Watson is doing now.

Watson seems to have taken a break from acting in 2020. She has nothing set for release for the rest of 2020. However, we expect her back on our screens soon.

Over the past few years, Emma has engaged in plenty of activism. In 2014, she launched the HeforShe campaign and became a UN Women Goodwill ambassador.

She is an outspoken feminist, and she has shown support for movements such as Me Too and Times’s Up. The last post on her dormant Instagram page is an advertisement for a playlist she made to sensitize people about racial discrimination. She attached the following caption alongside the post:

“Last week, to make it easy for others to access the many resources out there, I started @Spotify playlist of podcasts, writing, analysis and discussion that have helped me understand systemic racism, white supremacy and the experiences of indigenous people and people of colour.”
