Emma Watson fans got a look at the actress’ first big post-Harry Potter role Wednesday when Lionsgate released a new clip from The Perks of Being a Wallflower.

The film, which co-stars Logan Lerman (Percy Jackson) and Ezra Miller (We Need to Talk About Kevin), follows a young man’s journey through high school as he experiences adolescent romance, drug experimentation and suicide.

What happens when a Harry Potter alum meets Percy Jackson?

In the clip, Watson’s character Sam joins her step-brother Patrick (Miller) in a toast to Charlie (Lerman), the “wallflower” of the film’s title. Patrick leads the tribute, observing of Charlie, “You see things and you understand. You’re a wallflower.”

Charlie responds, “I didn’t think anyone noticed me.”

Patrick reassures him as Sam invites him to join their social group: “Welcome to the island of Misfit Toys,” she says.

Watch the clip above for a look at Watson’s cropped hairdo and her post-Potter style. The Perks of Being a Wallflower opens in theaters September 21, 2012.
