She rocketed to fame as a child star in Harry Potter, before going on to complete an array of film and modelling contracts.

And Emma Watson, who is known for her reserved appearance, was seen putting on an usually playful display as she enjoyed an autumnal walk with pals in London on Friday.

The 27-year-old Beauty And The Beast actress appeared jovial as she took to the leafy streets with her pals, performing a little dance.

Embracing the plummeting temperatures, the British star slipped into a pair of high-waisted jeans and a black sweater as she meandered through the streets.
She bundled up in a hat and long grey coat, before throwing a few shapes as her amused friends looked on.

Punching the air she seemed in relaxed spirits as she began her busy day ahead.

Her appearance came a month after she revealed she ‘stands by’ the brave women speaking out in the midst of the Harvey Weinstein scandal after the disgraced film mogul was accused of rape and sexual harassment. 

The Miramax co-founder was sacked from his position earlier this month after numerous women – including actresses Ashley Judd and Ambra Battilana – went public about his alleged behaviour.

The producer who has ties to almost every big name in Hollywood worked with Emma in 2011 when she starred in his film My Week With Marilyn.
The actress and campaigner for equal rights tweeted at the time in support of the women who had come forward.

Posting to Twitter, she wrote: ‘I stand with all the women who have been sexually harassed, and am awestruck by their bravery. This mistreatment of women has to stop. ‘

Watson worked with Weinstein when she was 19 on a film his company was producing.

They were pictured together shortly after partying in Central London after a night at the BAFTAs.

In images taken at the time, a young Watson can be seen leaving Mahiki nighclub in London as the then 58-year-old producer grabbed her from behind.

In recent years Watson has become a leading figure in the fight for gender equality after taking up her position as Women Goodwill Ambassador for the UN in 2014.

More than 40 women have now accused the 65-year-old Weinstein of harassment or abuse.

Actresses including Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie and Lupita Nyong’o have accused Weinstein of harassment, while actresses Asia Argento and Rose McGowan said he raped them.

The Television Academy, which bestows Emmy awards, said a disciplinary hearing set for November could lead to termination of his membership.

Speaking out: The Goodwill Ambassador for the UN said she was awestruck by the bravery of sexual harassment victims last month

He has already been expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the Producers Guild and the British Academy of Film and Television Arts.

Weinstein now faces criminal inquiries in three cities after an Italian actress told Los Angeles detectives that Weinstein raped her in a hotel room in 2013.

The film boss has previously denied ‘any claims of non-consensual sex’.
