Emma Watson and Benedict Cumberbatch have been appointed as visiting fellows at Lady Margaret Hall by Oxford University.
Watson, 25, and Cumberbatch, 39, will have a duties which are supposed to enrich the cultural life of the university, reported People magazine.
“At a minimum, we’d like them to drop in occasionally at college, eat with us and meet informally with a variety of the LMH community,” Alan Rusbridger, the college’s principal, said.
“We’d like them to do one thing a bit more structured. It could be a conversation or debate, a performance, a lecture or seminar, a form of outreach â€“ or something we haven’t thought of. We can imagine fascinating interactions or collaborations between them.”
The actors are among nine other fellows, all chosen from what Rusbridger said was a “variety of background, callings and professions.”
The fellows are also intended to help the academic community cross over into the various professional worlds the fellows are a part of.
