I absolutely love Rupert Grint and the Phelps Twins. I do hope they are there as well! I think the 3 of them just bring the best humor to the movies/characters! I don’t think they get enough credit for being such amazing actors!!

I have a little crush on Rupert as many I am sure do. Funny thing is my b-day is the same as Hermione’s (September 19th). Too bad that fantastic coiencidence didn’t get me a win…!

If I had to choose only one of the stars that I would be most excited to to see, it would have to be Rupert Grint. Since the beginning of the Harry Potter series, Rupert Grint has done an excellent job portraying his character(my favorite), Ron Weasley. Added bonus, my love of red-heads has only strengthened my love for Rupert Grint. Drawing at the end of this Harry Potter era, seeing any of my stars would fulfill my life.

I would love to have the opportunity to meet Daniel Radcliffe because he seems like a humble young actor on the rise and what he has contributed to the Harry Potter franchise has been simply magical.

I would love to win this competition to send my sister to go who is absolutely in love with Rupert Grint because he is a ginger, and because she thinks that he plays the best and funniest character in the series.

I would love to see Rupert Grint. My daughter has been in love with Rupert Grint since the beginning of the series and by her constant admiring of Rupert Grint, I have grown to share those sentiments(on a less psychotic level) for him. He is an amazing actor, and seems to be a genuine person as well.

I am most excited to see Daniel Radcliffe on the red carpet. Why you might ask? He brought the character, that I relate to, alive on screen. Six years ago, when I was 15 years old, I stumbled across Harry Potter on ABC Family (Sourcerer’s Stone) just hours after we laid my mom to rest (after her death). I instantly related to Harry, seeing as he was motherless and did not grow up in close-knit family. Harry Potter proved to me the importance of family and friends…. that you don’t have to be related biologically to be a family. Daniel Radcliffe, with everything he works for and believes in… such as finding a cure to children’s illnesses and fighting for the rights for gays/lesbians…. He, unknowinlgy, saved my life after my mom’s death. I am the person I am today because of him, and his character keeped me from falling on the wayside. It would mean EVERYthing to me to get to see him up close, and the others as well. Please, let me meet my idol and hero… my inspiration: Daniel Radcliffe!

I’m most excited to see Emma Watson becuse, she’s just so amazingly beutiful and has been my favorite of the trio over the course of all the movies.

I am most excited to see Helena Bonham Carter. She is an amazing actress and has been in so many great films! She is superb at playing Bellatrix, she really makes her character come to life. I love her crazy, eccentric style, she’s so unique. And she has an awesome personality- she seems so easy to talk to! Helena’s one of my biggest role-models; watching her on screen actually made me want to be an actress. She is beyond talented, and gorgeous as well. Such an inspiration!

I’d be most excited to meet Rupert Grint. He’s very talented and he can make me laugh, especially with his various face expressions in all the movies. Also, in the books Ron has always been my favorite character. He’s a stylish and generous actor as well.

I would be most excited to see Tom Felton. I absolutely adore Draco Malfoy and his portrayal of the character. It would make me ecstatic to see him in person!

I’d be most excited to see Tom Felton. I feel like while the Trio has been represented well, he’s portrayed a character in the books that has grown and changed over the series exceptionally well. As an avid fan of the series I feel like Tom has really brought the character of Draco to life which is difficult because some see Draco as nothing more than a spoiled child with no depth to him, but Tom changes that. Plus he said in an interview a long time ago that he’d give up acting to be a professional fisher and that really intrigued me. I’d love to just have the chance to meet him and see if he is as interesting and charismatic as he seems on twitter and in interviews. I just…he seems like such an awesomely wicked person to meet and I’ve just been dying to meet him since the first movies. Plus it’d be the best college graduation present ever! Thanks for the chance to enter something as amazing as this contest :D

I would want to meet Emma Watson because she’s one of my idols(: She started acting, something I’ve been to shy to do until the past two years(and now I love it with my heart and soul), when she was so young, and she’s built such an amazing career! When she was around my age, she got really good grades while still maintaining her acting and modeling career, and even her just wanting to go to college, let alone getting into an Ivy League school, really inspires me. Also, besides the fact that she played HERMIONE GRANGER in my favorite series EVER, (since first grade when I read my first book(:) she also voiced the princess in The Tale of Despereaux, which is another one of my favorite books :D It would be SO amazing if I could actually meet her in person!!! It would make my life <3

For me, seeing Helena Bonham Carter would be absolutely amazing. She is a wonderful actress and is perfect in every role she’s played from the crazy death eater Bellatrix Lestrange to the big-headed, foul-tempered Red Queen of Wonderland to Shakespeare’s love-sick Olivia in Twelfth Night. She knows how to add her own twist to a character without straying too far from the character’s origins.

I am most excited to see Rupert Grint because he represents the loyal best friend that everyone looks for in times of hardship and he has grown so much as a pivotal character throughout the course of the series.

I would love to see Maggie Smith. She is such an incredible woman and just as strong as Minerva McGonagall. It sure is an amazing feat battling cancer and Lord Voldemort at the same time. She is an inspiration.
