The J-14 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 Countdown continues!
Today, we've got four fun facts you never knew about Bonnie Wright, who plays Harry Potter's love interest Ginny Weasley.
Four Things You Didn't Know About Bonnie Wright
1. She'd never read Harry Potter before she got the part.
"My brother read the first few books and he really loved them. He was like, 'Oh, you really remind me of the character of Ginny,'" Bonnie says. "I said, 'okay, [I'll try out],' not knowing who that was. That's basically why I went for the casting. I probably should say thanks to him!
2. Her boyfriend stays by her side -- even with a broken ankle.
Bonnie's BF and Deathly Hallows costar Jamie Campbell Bower broke his ankle last Tuesday while filming his new TV show Camelot in Dublin, Ireland. But he still hobbled on crutches to support his girlfriend at the Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 London premiere last Thursday. "My leg hurts," Jamie Tweeted. "Thank God for my girlie!"
3. She wants to be a director.
"I'm interested in the bigger picture," Bonnie says. "I've been inspired by everything that I've watched while filming, and I'm interested in cinematography and directing."
4. She never eats when the cameras are rolling.
"In a banquet scene, you must never be filmed actually eating," Bonnie says. "Otherwise, you'll have to keep on for the sake of continuity. The food gets cold and stale, and you start to feel really sick. You have to make sure the spoon only goes as far as your lips."
