As the new Beauty and the Beast continues to do well at the box office, more and more articles are being written about it. One such article pointed out that there is now an entire generation who knows Emma Watson best not as Hermione Granger, but as Belle.
Emma is not the only young Harry Potter actor who has done other things since Harry Potter.
and of course you have the seasoned actors who did many things before Harry Potter and continued on after Harry Potter.
When someone has done something as big an 8 movie series (regardless if they were in all 8), do you think its easy for them to transition into new characters (like anyone who has ever been a Doctor?) or should they just keep to that character and travel the Con Circuit?
