Thanks to our Order partner BonnieWrightOnline.com we know of a new interview with Bonnie Wright that is available here, as well as some gorgeous new photos, here. Update: Scans also now in our galleries, here. In the article, Bonnie discusses her role as Ginny Weasley, even speaking to filming of the epilogue for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, saying "they've been discussing how they're going to do that,' We might be aged with latex wrinkles…" She also discusses snogging Harry (Dan Radcliffe) for Half-Blood Prince:

The Half-Blood Prince is the first film in which their lips actually meet, although they've been gazing wistfully at each other for ages. It was slightly embarrassing because on set everyone knew that it was The Day when we'd kiss,' she admits. It was definitely a case of “pass the mints”. But at the moment of the scene, everything just worked.

Ginny kind of initiates what happens between her and Harry. He doesn't really know what to do because she's his best friend's sister, so she takes the lead. It was very calm and romantic.'It was a restrained clinch, she confirms: It would have been more embarrassing to do a full-on number.' The relationship seems to have taken even Bonnie by surprise. As I was reading the sixth book, when their relationship starts, I was quite shocked,' she confesses.

Thanks much Jackie!

She is SO pretty! I can;t understand why people complained about her being cast as Ginny because they thought she wasn’t pretty enough! That’s ridiculous!

I love Bonnie. She looks gorgeous in these pics and the interview was really lovely. I giggled at Michael Gambon laying there laughing when he was supposed to be dead, lol.

After reading this article, I realized I had known nothing about Bonnie Wright before. Really nice to hear about the more personal side from her!

I love Ginny and was so happy to see the photo shoot of Bonnie and the nice long interview. I’d have loved to have seen her and Dan do the passionate kiss from the book, but alas, it’s been changed to “sweet”. Ah well. We can’t have everything, but I know I’m going to be disappointed if she doesn’t get a hug from him.
