LONDON, June 16 (UPI) -- Emma Watson, the U.K. actress who plays Hermione in the "Harry Potter" blockbusters, reportedly is to be the new face of Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle fragrance.

The Mirror reported the 18-year-old actress has signed with the French fashion house a two-year contract worth $6 million.

Keira Knightley's contract with Coco Mademoiselle ends this summer.

"Emma has been excitedly telling friends that she is going to be taking over from Keira," a source told The Mirror.

Knightley has starred in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" trilogy, as well as "Pride and Prejudice" and "Atonement."
