I thought their logic from the beginning was to make Lavender look a little bit like Hermione. It kind of triggers why Ron might like her (because her character, like Cho’s, doesn’t have many attributes we’d normally associate as being “right” for Ron relationship-wise, but her looking a bit like Hermione adds the tension and plenty more jealousy for Hermione- making her feel like Lavender is prettier to Ron than she is, though that’s not the only reason he actually likes Hermione).

I don’t like Narcissa in the picture at all. She looks older than Lucius, when she’s younger, and her hair is ridiculous.

It’s me or Fenrir is wearing a silver earring?

I don’t really think Lavender looks like Hermione at all. In the trailer some people might have confused them because it goes by so fast… but apart from that I don’t think WB planned to make them look alike.

Is Ron wearing the “my sweetheart” necklace on that picture?

And what the heck is Dumbledore doing with Harry on that train station?
“Harry!! You know how to aparate?”
“Er… sorry sir… no!”
“Well…. two train tickets then!”

I was expecting an extremely handsome actor for teen Voldy… guess not, young tom looks creepier than teen tom. Greyback freaked me out! Narcissa looks like she has a permanent hat on her head.

Narcissa is awful, what’s with the hair. The director is responsible for approving the way the actors look, once again David Yates screws it up

I Like them, but for some reason Teen Tom Riddle looks nothing like i imagened him ….. but i like it though ! LOVE the pic with Ron and Lavender ! Ron keeps looking away in all of the pictures with him and Lav – Lav… I hope he’s looking at Hermione !!! I still want to know why people are confusing Hermione and Lavender, they look nothing alike !! Lavender is more chubby at the face and Hermione never wears her hair in pigtails with little bows on them ! Hermione’s hair isn’t that long either . OMG , Fenrir is scary as hell, i screamed when i saw him !! Scared the living crap out of me ……

I don’t know .. Fenrir is weird in my opinion. Too fake and big.

But who cares about that. I care about Narcissa! She’s horrible. Gosh. Helen looks so effing old! It’s really disgusting. I thought Cissy was young, pretty, and thin? Not the total opposite! And that hair … ugh !

I imagined Narcissa a bit more frail looking by this book. And the hair is weird.
Doris – Christian Coulson is too old now. Over 30. They’ve mentioned that a couple times in interviews…

Fenrir is creepy, gross and totally spot on!! Narsissa…..she looks like Draco’s Grandmother with that hair!! The clothes and posturing are Malfoy enough, but seriously….fire the hair designer!!! The rest are fine, but I do agree that in shots we have so far they should have made more of a contrast to Hermione and Lavender.

Hair does not a character make.

Personally I am very pleased with the photos. I think Narcissa looks pretty close to what I was imagining (and way better than I feared after never seeing a hint of blond anywhere during pre-production) and Fenrir is just… wow. Scary!
