Emma Watson, aka Hermione from the Harry Potter films, recently spoke with MTV about the next Harry Potter installment. No, I’m not referring to the Half-Blood Prince, I’m talking about the final piece of this legacy, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Watson gave her reaction to the surprise decision to split Hallows into two separate films! That’s right, their milking this cash cow for as long as they can. Read Watson’s reaction after the jump.

Watson was just as surprised as Potter fans when she heard about the Deathly Hallows split.

“I don’t know,” she replied. “I am as intrigued as you are. I am waiting at the moment to receive the script. It’s a tough call. I’m sure it will be some cruel cliffhanger.”

As for how she feels about her final adieu to the character she grew up playing….

“It’s really mixed feelings,” Watson gushed. “It will be bittersweet. It will be very scary because it’s been such a massive part of my life. It will have been nearly over a decade that I’d been playing Hermione. It’ll be tough but I’ll be ready to go I think. I’ll be ready to take on other projects. It will be exciting.”

Awww, that’s so sweet. The children have really grown up.
