Actress Bonnie Wright is featured this week in Entertainment Weekly as a  "Movie Must Bewitching Love Interest." As seen via this link, the magazine says:

AGE 18
WHY HER Few Harry Potter fans imagined that Ginny Weasley would blossom into the love of the boy wizard's life. Ditto Wright, the actress who has played Ginny since she was 9. Now Wright and her character move into the spotlight with Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, opening July 15.

There is also video of Bonnie noting her summer musts, where she notes she has Leonard Cohen, Truffaut and also ''I'm reading Milton's Paradise Lost,'' she says. ''Creation, Adam and Eve, fall of man — great stuff.''

Thanks to our Order Partner Bonnie Wright Online, and Fez for emailing!

She really seems to have a great head on her shoulders. It’s got to be overwhelming, thinking you’ve been hired to be a minor character and then you get some major attention.

What do they mean few fans saw Ginny as Harry’s future love interest? I think there are plenty in the fandom that would not agree with that assessment. For me, it was clear from the first time I read Chamber of Secrets that JKR was setting these two up. If nothing else, Harry’s rescuing Ginny from the Chamber followed the classic Fairy Tale: The brave prince/ knight rescues the fair princess/ maiden from the tower/ dungeon where she’s being guarded by an evil dragon/ serpent (basilisk), and they live happily ever after. With that much foreshadowing, I would’ve been surprised if he hadn’t ended up with Ginny.

Kudos to Bonnie! I’m glad to see her getting some well-deserved press. The EW picture is very nice.

I’m pretty sure their talking about movie Ginny because I knew Book Harry and Ginny would become a couple from the SS train scene when Harry sees her chasing the train until nearly out of sight.

I agree that it’s mostly the movie people that didn’t see Harry/Ginny coming. His best friends sister who has always been crazy about him. The first Weasly girl in several generations. I always thought she was meant for Harry.
I love seeing articles about Bonnie. That is a lovely picture of her. Very “Ginny”.

I agree about the “FEW” part. Most book readers knew they were going to be a couple from the first. That is one of the reasons HBP is my favorite book. Movie only people do miss out on so much.
