Over the weekend, the 24-year-old Harry Potter actress received her bachelor's degree in English literature from Brown University during graduation in Providence, R.I. While sitting in the audience wearing her cap and gown, Watson was photographed sitting next to a female friend who was similarly dressed in a black graduation getup.
So who was Watson's schoolmate? Turns out the gal-pal was seemingly a costume-wearing bodyguard disguised as a Brown student!
After the ceremony was over, Watson was snapped exiting the graduation next to the same woman. However, the security woman had taken off her cap and gown and was instead wearing jeans and a pink shirt with lots of bodyguard paraphernalia, including a walkie talkie, police badge, mace spray and various holsters around her waist.
Pretty sneaky (but understandable)! Brown University wouldn't comment on Watson's law enforcement escort.
Meanwhile, Watson shared a cute pic of herself in her cap and gown over the weekend. Watson also recently gushed about being excited for graduation, telling E! News she was "feeling very good" about finishing school.
