Nowadays, you will be hard-pressed to find someone that doesn’t like Harry Potter. As one of the largest movie franchises of all time, knowing your Harry Potter characters is like a rite of passage. Besides, who wouldn’t want to get to know the fabulous women of this magical world? From the beautiful Hermione Granger to the mysterious Lily Potter, between then and now, you’re in for some major jaw-droppers.
Bonnie Wright as Ginny Weasley
Despite an awkward start, Ginny Weasley proved herself to be more than just another character in the Harry Potter franchise. Initially, Ginny started as Ron’s shy and timid little sister. However, throughout the books, she proves herself to be so much more than that! Right from the start, we saw clues of her loyalty, bravery, and eagerness to take on a challenge. Over time, she even ended up becoming the love interest of none other than Harry Potter, himself! This eventually leads the fans to some very romantic and “awwwwing” moments (and some very weird and uncomfortable ones for Ron).
From the second book, and until the very end, Ginny faces and overcomes He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, over and over again, and beats him every time (with the help of her trusty knight in shining Gryffindor robes). There is no denying that she is an important and courageous character.
Bonnie Wright Now
Although Bonnie Wright had no prior acting experience before the Harry Potter movies, a small, yet motivating push from her older brother, Lewis, landed Bonnie at the Harry Potter auditions, which eventually became her first out of many more roles as an actress. While the adorable Ginny Weasley has definitely been her biggest and most memorable role yet, it was certainly not the last.
Ms. Wright grew into quite the accomplished actress, and appeared as a young Sarah Robinson and a young Agatha Christie, which were filmed at the same time as the Harry Potter movies. She is also accredited for some later films (the last being A Christmas Carol, in 2018), including a number of appearances in stage productions.
