EMMA Watson "cried" uncontrollably when finished filming the last 'Harry Potter' film.

The actress - who was just 10 when she first played Hermione Granger in the wizard franchise - couldn't control her emotions when she had to hang up her Hogwarts outfit for the last time when shooting on 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2' wrapped.

Speaking on UK TV show 'Daybreak', she said: "It was so strange ... I kind of felt quite numb, I couldn't really - it doesn't seem like your feeling anything. And it was when they said, 'That's Emma down and Rupert wrapped,' on 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows', and it just hit me and it was incredibly emotional obviously.

"I cried, cried, cried, cried, cried - it was really emotional and overwhelming."

Although she is sad the 'Harry Potter' movies have come to an end, Emma, now 21, is looking forward to taking on new roles - as long as they don't require so many years of her life.

She said: "I mean it's so funny, when I've signed on for other projects, other things, people don't really understand why I get quite jumpy and quite concerned and I think it's because I've signed on for one thing and it turns into a 12-year project. And I realise that everything else won't be like that, but I just can't believe what it turned into."

Emma - who starred in the movies alongside Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint - will always be proud to have portrayed witch Hermione and isn't worried about being typecast in the future.

She said: "If I'm going to be associated with anything, I'm so thrilled that it would be her and it would be this."
