London, March 18 (Calcutta Tube) ‘Harry Potter‘ star Emma Watson received a standing ovation for her role in a student play despite battling nerves over her debut university performance. The 19-year-old played Olga Sergeyevna Prozorova in an adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s ‘Three Sisters‘ earlier this month at Brown University in Rhode Island, where she is studying, reports imdb.com.
‘Emma was nervous beforehand but was faultless in her role. She has been juggling coursework with rehearsals and learning lines so she’s had a lot on her plate,’ said a source close to her.
‘Emma was over the moon that every show was a full house. She also made some new friends while doing it,’ the source added.
