Post New 'Order of the Phoenix' Interview with Bonnie, Evanna, and Matthew

The Basingstoke Gazette recently featured a new interview with Bonnie Wright, Evanna Lynch, and Matthew Lewis who portray Potter characters Ginny Weasley, Luna Lovegood, and Neville Longbottom in the films.

The interviews cover their castings, their particular roles in the upcoming film, each other, and a bit about themselves as well!


Q: What has it been like to step more into the limelight as Ginny has become more prominent?

A: In the first few books, she was the little sister of the Weasley family, but in the later books, she comes through more on her own.

It's been more fun doing this film as Ginny's character's developed. The six of us go through to the Ministry of Magic and it was really interesting to be a part of. Ginny's a bit more confident - I have definitely enjoyed that...

Q: What's good about being a Weasley?
A: We have a Christmas scene in Grimauld place and it's quite a dark atmosphere but our family brings a bit of life into it, some colour. I think the humour in the Weasley family brings things more alive.

Julie Walters, who plays Mrs Weasley is really kind of open and friendly towards all of us - she likes to have that family ring around us all. She's bubbly on set.

Q: Did you go to see Daniel Radcliffe, who plays Harry star in Equus in the West End?

A: I saw it and I enjoyed it. For him it was definitely a good, good thing to do, because you're so easily typecast as a child actor and I think it's a good move. The play was just amazing - I was so wrapped up in it all.

As well as all of the Harry Potter films, Bonnie has starred in two television productions; Agatha Christie; a Life in Pictures in which she played the young Agatha Christie and as Sarah Robinson in Stranded.

Bonnie also plays the guitar, saxophone, takes ballet and contemporary dance and sings. She loves art, English, listening to music, watching films, surfing, cycling and playing football, hockey and tennis.

Q: What was it like to be a fan and then be on the set?

A: It was this feeling the whole time like I shouldn't be here among all these stars, these professionals. I was trying to keep my distance because I wanted to watch everyone. They want you to be at home and be part of it, and it became normal very quickly. I know I had been prepared, thinking, it's going to be like this, but that was more of a fantasy...

Q: J K Rowling knows you from your fan letters and has apparently said that she thinks you'll be great in the past - that must be a thrill?

A: If she's happy with you playing one of her characters, that's an honour. She still hasn't seen it, she'd just going from meeting me so I'm really scared. I'm always picturing the moment after she's seen it and I've had nightmares where she just walks away. I don't want to know what the Potter fans think of me - there's always going to be someone who won't like it - and that'll just upset me. If I'm happy with it, it just matters if I've done my little vision of Luna.

Q: Have you any thoughts on what will happen in book seven?

A: Voldemort is going to die and Harry is going to live and he's going to die. He'll go through the department of mysteries on All Hallows Eve.

I hope they'll come back into the living world. He hasn't had a very fun life and he needs a few years free of Voldemort.

I wouldn't want to get book seven in advance. Sometimes talking to Jo, I'd ask her questions and think actually, no I don't want to know!
When not filming, Evanna enjoys spending time at home, particularly with her family pets, which include a cat called Luna and a kitten named Dumbledore.

Q: Having just spoken to Evanna, I have to ask you first about the wand incident with Helena.

A: We were doing a scene in the Ministry of Magic where she's holding the character of Neville hostage and Helena plays the character really well, being sadistic and twisted about it. She was moving the wand about on my head, just teasing me and I'm pulling away in fear. She put it straight into my ear and the doctor had to have a look at it and I was deaf for two days in that ear which was pretty weird. She was very apologetic and I can hear fine now! ...

Q: Given that you're obviously quite a dude Matthew looks very different from Neville in the flesh, much more trendy is it fun to play a character who's very different to you in real life?

A: It's kind of strange because I was never really bullied at school. I was pretty confident and I've never shyed away from much but a lot of people have come up to me and said that they were bullied at school and him playing Neville has influenced them a lot in their lives and helped them out. So that's given me great inspiration to carry on doing the job right...

Q: Do you think Neville's going to die?

A: A lot of people have come up to me and said, you're going to die mate'. Cheers! But I like to think he'll be there fighting to the end. If he does die, I'd like it to be really heroic, saving someone else's life.
Matthew has been acting since he was just five years old after joining a performing arts club. He won the role of Neville after an open casting call was held in his hometown.
There is still more to hear from each of them! You can view the full interview right HERE!!!

Wow, Bonnie is quite a well-rounded talented person! I like how she likes art, English, music, cycling, hockey, and even sings, because those are all things I like as well. ^^
