Emma Watson is hoping to follow in
the footsteps of her "Harry Potter" co-star Daniel Radcliffe by taking on a role
in a musical stage show.

The British actress had to perform routines from famed musical "The Rocky
Horror Picture Show" for her new film, "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," and
she admits the work gave her a taste for singing and dancing. She now hopes to
land a musical theater role to put her new-found skills to the test, emulating
Radcliffe, who honed his dance steps for a star turn in the Broadway production
of "How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying."

Watson tells British newspaper the Sunday Telegraph, "I love musical theater,
so I would love to do a musical soon, that would be wonderful ... I was
terrified of the 'Rocky Horror' scenes, but, as it turned out, it was fun, and
once I got over how weird it was to go from wearing knitted jumpers to corsets
and fishnets, I got it together ... (It has given me) a taste for cabaret and
singing and dancing."
