Many thanks to Kristi for emailing in!
One of the things that makes the films a poor representation of the books is how much of the characters that is missing. We don’t get nearly enough interaction between characters in the films to know them. And, in a well plotted story like Harry Potter those characters tell the story. The path of the characters is also one of the reasons the stories capture our hearts and minds so well. This is all a long-winded way of saying we never really get to know Ginny as well as we should and so her bond to Harry doesn’t feel justified. I think the filmmakers always took it for granted that everyone would have read the stories and be able to patch in the meaning even if it was left out of the film.
Three cheers for Bonnie! I hope she does well and gets her chance to shine beyond HP!
I agree with people who have said Bonnie hasn’t had enough to do in the HP films and because of that we don’t really know how well she can act, which is a terrible shame because Ginny is such a fantastic character and one of my favourites.
I think it’s very unfair to say that she can’t act at all though. She hasn’t been given the same exposure, practice and training as Dan, Emma and Rupert have. It’s common sense that the more you practise a talent or an ability the better you get at it. Hopefully this film will show everyone exactly what Bonnie can do when she has a director that has faith in her.
Anyway, good luck Bonnie! I saw the trailer and it looked great!
