HARRY Potter fans have been left fearing Emma Watson is about to vanish from our screens as rumours swirl she has retired from acting.
The 30-year-old star has gone “dormant” according to her agent – believed to be movie-speak for stepping back from the limelight and giving up acting.

A source told the Mail: “Emma has gone underground, she is settling down with Leo. They’re laying low. Maybe she wants a family.”
