Emma Watson was evacuated from her college dorm after a fire scare on Tuesday (28.09.10).

The 'Harry Potter' actress - who has been studying for an English Literature degree at Brown University In America since September 2009 - had to flee in her pyjamas after The Alarm went off at 10am.

Residents of Olney House, where the 20-year-old Hollywood star lives, were kept outside after the university's emergency alert system was triggered.

However, students were allowed to return to their rooms after 10 minutes when fire-fighters revealed a leaking steam pipe had caused the scare.

Since enrolling at the prestigious college Emma has been able to juggle her movie career with her studies.

It was recently revealed the 20-year-old actress is close to signing up for her first post 'Harry Potter' role.

Emma is believed to be taking on the part of a wardrobe assistant named Lucy in 'My Week With Marilyn' based on the memoirs of Colin Clark, who worked as Laurence Olivier's assistant on the film 'The Prince And The Showgirl' in 1956.

It is believed Emma is keen on the minor role because she can shoot the scenes in just a few days, limiting her time away from university.
