EMMA Watson feels as though she has "retired".

The 20-year-old actress - who is currently studying at Brown University in America - was left feeling bereft following the end of filming 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts I and II', the seventh and eighth movies in the wizarding franchise.

She said: "I'm going to say something really sad. Knowing that there's still more to come from me - it feels very strange to feel like you're retiring when you're 20 years old. But it does feel that way. I've spent 10 years making these movies and I just hope that the second part of my life is as incredible as the first half."

Though she is sad about the end of filming, Emma - who plays brain box witch Hermione Granger in the popular series - will have a permanent reminder of her stint after revealing she has a "serious collection" of bibles which she is often sent by well-meaning fans.

She explained on UK TV show 'Daybreak': "I think people just think we need guidance, you know? It is slightly strange, I do have quite a serious collection of them now."

The brunette beauty also spoke about how much she is enjoying student life.

She said: "I work hard, I work really hard. I do really enjoy it so that helps."
