Harry Potter Star Bonnie Wright Opens Up About Her Disappointment With Ginny’s Portrayal-TGN

This article covers a developing story. Continue to check back with us as we will be adding more information as it becomes available.

Harry Potter star Bonnie Wright opens up about complaints regarding Ginny Weasley and her own feelings of disappointment about how the character was treated. Based on the novels by author J.K. Rowling, the first Harry Potter film was released in 2001, spawning six sequels. Wright was introduced as Ginny, Ron’s sister, in the first film, and would ultimately become a love interest for Harry in the subsequent movies.


Now, in a recent interview with Michael Rosenbaum on his Inside of You podcast, Wright discusses how she feels about Ginny’s portrayal across the seven films in the franchise, revealing that parts of it left her feeling disappointed. Check out her comment below:

“I definitely feel there was anxiety towards performing and doing the best thing as my character built, for instance. Like, ‘Oh gosh, will I do justice to this character that people love?’ So that was always hard to do, especially when, inevitably, a lot of the scenes of every character kind of were chopped down from the book to the film. So you didn’t really have as much to show in the film.

“Sometimes that was a little disappointing because there were parts of the character that just didn’t get to come through because there weren’t the scenes to do that. That made me feel a bit anxious or just frustrated, I guess.

“There was no room for much change in those scripts. There was a million executives going through them all. I think what I maybe took, which I don’t take so much to heart now, is I kind of felt that maybe my anxiety was about, ‘Oh, I’m going to be seen as badly portraying this character,’ rather than later realizing that I wasn’t really given the opportunity to do that. So it wasn’t really my fault, exactly.

“And when fans do share that disappointment and they do it in a that are like, ‘We know it wasn’t you. We just wanted more of you.’ And that’s the same of every character. If only they could be five-hour-long movies.”
