It would definitely be either Alan Rickman or Tom Felton!

I would love to meet Alan Rickman if I could go the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows premiere. When I first read the Harry Potter series I absolutely despised Snape because of how cruel he treated anyone not in Gryffindor especially Harry, Ron and Hermione. And when I watched the movies I was sure I would feel the exact same way about Snape. And that I would hate him even more. But Alan Rickman was able to make me rethink Snapes character in general. The way he was able to bring Snapes character to life in the movies made him one of my favorite characters in the movie. While he still had the same personality as I imagined in the book, Rickman was able to add a level of charm and charisma to Snapes character that I didn’t believe was possible. I really admire his acting skills and making me actually like one of the characters I had originally despised.

Tom Felton is my idol! He gives Malfoy a certain charm that makes me want to watch him more in the movies. I just fell in love with his character on the screen. Yet in every movie the directors don’t seem to give him enough screen time. He definitely has a more defined role in the books and I don’t think he gets enough credit. This is one of the many reasons why I would really like to meet Tom Felton. He is one of my favorite actors in the movie yet he definitely doesn’t get the credit he deserves for bringing Malfoy’s character out so well. In one of the interviews he was in, he mentioned that the audience would learn more about Draco in the Half Blood Prince and the Deathly Hallows part 1 but I definitely didn’t see. In fact they barely showed his character and he gets less screen time in each movie. I think that they should have portrayed his character more because he is definitely important in the end. I want to meet Tom Felton because of how much I admire him and how he is able to bring out a different side to Draco’s character and makes me sympathize with him more.

I’d really want to see Tom Felton. Alright, I do admit to originally abhorring Draco throughout the book series and the beginning of the movies, but Half-Blood Prince started changing my viewpoint of him slowly. His character is becoming more and more intriguing, though I highly doubt I’ll ever fall for the Draco-Hermione fandom rubbish. Everyone is kind of stuck in Draco’s stance at one point in their life: wanting so badly to belong to something and carrying on a tradition that you’re driven to extremes… Even being pressured into something you’re not ready for. Draco couldn’t pull off Avada Kedavra when it mattered most to him and everyone around who believed he could do it (or wanted to believe.)

Don’t get me wrong, he’s still a dirtbag, but it doesn’t mean he’s complete evil scum.

And the fact that Ton Felton’s gorgeous is just a plus :)

I am definitely most excited about seeing J.K. Rowling. For many reasons. Obviously, because she wrote the books. She has been such a great influence in my life. I have spent I don’t know how many hours pouring over her books over and over again. It would be completely amazing to meet her!

I am most excited about seeing Tom Felton! He’s my favorite actor in the series. He’s so talented and seems very very nice.

Posted by excalibur1 on July 02, 2011, 10:49 AM report to moderator

Emma Watson for sure! She’s beautiful and talented and she plays my favorite character in the series!

I am most excited to see Daniel Radcliffe. He’s really a role model of mine. He just holds himself together so well under all this pressure of being as big of a character as he is. He’s so funny, and he does an amazing job of being Harry.

I am most excited to see Evanna Lynch. She brings so much life to the movies, even in its darkest moments.

Posted by FilchsEmporium on July 02, 2011, 10:48 PM report to moderator

I’d be most excited to meet Emma Watson. She has really been a great role model for me, always staying out of the tabloids and Hollywood scene, and she keeps her head well in the midst of all her fame. She believes in helping those less fortunate than herself, which is very admirable. It would be great to meet her.

Rupert Grint. He seems so happy all the time, so it would be great to see that energy in person.

I would by far be most excited about seeing JK Rowling. Obviously, because she is the author of the books, but also because she has been a real heroine of mine. Her rags to riches story is very inspiring. She stuck to what she believed in and it persevered magnificently. Her imagination is simply endless. She motivated me to follow my dreams and to never give up.

I would love to see Ralph Fiennes. He does such a great job of playing such a scary character.

Posted by waddiwassi on July 02, 2011, 11:11 PM report to moderator

I would love to see Maggie Smith if she were going to be there. McGonagall is an underrated character, but I love her so much. Maggie Smith does a superb job portraying her.
