'Potter' star to put acting on hold
The 18-year-old, who plays the boy wizard's love interest Ginny Weasley in the films, has decided to focus on life behind the camera for the foreseeable future.
Wright told The Daily Telegraph: "I'm starting a film production course at the University of the Arts, London.
"There's a bit of acting involved, but it's mainly production and directing. David Yates, the Harry Potter director, was so excited when I told him that's what I was planning to do."
The actress has recently been filming Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows, the final movie in the series, which will be released in two parts in 2010 and 2011 respectively.
Lead star Daniel Radcliffe is also said to be eyeing a directing career following advice from his Potter colleagues.
