She previously was with WME.

Emma Watson has left WME for CAA, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

She embodies Belle in Disney's much-anticipated live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, out next March. A month later, she will star opposite Tom Hanks and John Boyega in James Ponsoldt's adaptation of Dave Eggers' novel The Circle. Her other film credits include The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Bling Ring and Noah.

Since becoming world-famous as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter franchise, Watson has become a female empowerment icon in her own right, serving as a global goodwill ambassador for UN Women. She was named one of Time magazine's 2015 Time 100 most influential people list on the strength of her HeForShe campaign, and in January she started a monthly feminist book club called Our Shared Shelf.

Watson continues to be managed by Untitled Entertainment.
