A representative for Harry Potter star Emma Watson has denied reports that the actress is auditioning for the lead role in an upcoming big screen adaptation of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
Watson, 20, had sparked speculation she was trying for the role of edgy computer hacker
Lisbeth Salander after she debuted a short pixie hairstyle earlier this month, the Daily Express reported.
She was said to be leading the race for the role, fighting off competition from actresses including Ellen Page and Carey Mulligan.
But according to GossipCop.com, a spokesperson for Watson has denied the speculation, saying the rumour is “absolutely false on all accounts”.
