ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) The 22-year-old actress, best known for playing bookish wizard Hermione Granger in the fantasy films, stars in the coming-of-age drama "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" based on Stephen Chbosky's novel of the same name. Harry Potter author JK Rowling's new book "The Casual Vacancy" hit the shelves on Thursday (September 27). It's the mega-selling author's first book since the Harry Potter series. Watson said it was a "poetic" coincidence that both she and Rowling were debuting new works at the same time. Watson also said she can't wait to read Rowling's first adult novel, denying she has had a sneak preview. Wearing a black peplum dress and wide-legged trousers by Dior Couture, Watson also revealed that her new role took her out of her comfort zone.
