Bonnie Wright Feels Her Harry Potter Character Was the Most Neglected

Bonnie Wright who played the role of Ginny Weasley, opened up about her zero chemistry with Daniel Radcliffe in the Harry Potter movie. In comparison to the book the character of Ginny Weasley has been the most underserved, and just like a fan, even Bonnie Wright agrees to this.

Talking about this in an interview with Michael Rosenbaum’s Inside of You podcast Bonnie Wright agreed that she was not happy with the amount of screen time her character received in the movie. She also talked about how frustrated and anxious she used to feel for not doing justice to the character.

“Sometimes that was a little disappointing, because there were parts of the character that just didn’t get to come through because there weren’t the scenes to do that,” Wright continues. “That made me feel a bit anxious or just frustrated, I guess.”

Even though Wright was cast in the movie only when she was nine, she was far more aware of the character and how much it deserved, unlike the creators.

Bonnie Wright Did Not Feel It Was Her Fault

After all these years Bonnie Wright does not feel that it was her fault that the character of Ginny Weasley was so underrated. Even though Wright was worried that she was badly portraying the character back when the movie was in the making. She now does not believe that it was her fault.

Talking about this Wright said that the Harry Potter book was very vast and if the creators of the movie had decided to give every character enough time and space each of its movies would have been five hours long. She also said that there was not much room in the scripts at that time for changes. Hence, she does not blame herself for it as she was not given the opportunity to do it.


“There was no room for much change in those scripts. And I always felt like Oh, I’m going to be seen as badly portraying this character. But later I realized that I wasn’t really given the opportunity to do that. So, it wasn’t really my fault, exactly.”

She also highlighted that even the fans don’t blame her for that. Although Harry Potter is all set to get its own television series under HBO Max, maybe this time Ginny Weasley will get her day in the sun.
