Default How do you feel about casting in respect to character role?

Do you think Emma, Dan, and Rupert were the right picks for the trio? What about Maggie Smith as McGonagall? Alan Rickman as Severus Snape? Any actors or actresses do you think would have portrayed the character better?


I think they did a great job in all 8 films! The one thing I would change would be Rupert's and Dan's hair in the Goblet of Fire (in my house known as the bad hair movie). I think they were the right picks, granted I didn't see the other choices. Any other actors you can think of that would have done a good job?

Personally I think they did a great job portraying the trio in each of the movies. I'll have to agree with you on the hair thing, I think it was a little long, however they ended up cutting it so it didn't really bother me all that much. I'm not someone who knows a lot about actors/actresses so I would have to say that they were a great pick and I wouldn't pick anyone else.

I do not think anyone could play Harry, Ron, or Hermione better than Dan, Rupert, and Emma. They all did fantastic jobs in all eight films, and I wouldn't want anyone else but them playing the characters. The films wouldn't be the films without them

Becca. x Lauccatastic! (: Love You Girlies. <3

they did good, but tbh- we'd have probably said the same thing if someone else had played them, we'd have never known about dan, rupert and emma.

An interesting question, how would we know. I think all concerned were amazed at how much Daniel Radcliffe looked like Harry Potter, that's why they wanted him.

I think Dan was the one who put it so well when asked about the fans, screaming that swirled around them wherever they went, he knew that it was the parts not the actors that the people were coming to see. Any actor chosen to play this trio, would have had the same affect as Dan, Emma and Rupert on the fans.
What was the question?? oh yes,
Dan, Emma and Rupert were perfect, we watched them grow up in these films and I'm sure a good many of you grew up with them.
I wish these stories had been around when my children were young. It is a very wonderful world.

I think that they were and are perfect for the roles that they were chosen for, also I agree with the people that say that if they had not been chosen for the roles we would not have known them. I am happy that we were introduced to these 3 especially Emma

A few times I was annoyed by them, but they are awesome. These are the people I imagine when reading. So yes, they were ther ight picks. We have grown to really like them and I bet there are many who think of them as they read.

I like the casting. Dan's acting is not always the best, but it must be hard to play a character like Harry my only real problem about the trio is that from PoA onwards, Emma Watson is too pretty for Hermione

^^I'd have to agree with you. I thought their hair was TERRIBLE in the Goblet of Fire.
Other than that,yes I do believe they were the 3 perfect people for the trio. THey were amazing and worked so well with each other

Agreed. I was like... wasn't Hermione that weird, frizzy-haired girl in the books?!

But she plays it well, though...

Did you just lose something? The GAME? Sorry... 'Justin Bieber, he is the man!' U mad, Felton!?

Yeah, Hermione's hair should be brown, not blonde, frizzy, not nice. She. Is. Too. Pretty. Plus, Harry's eyes should be green. In some of the films, they are blue. FAIL!

But, not including looks, they played them amazingly!

All the way through they all did a fantastic job in their roles! I can imagine them being any different or any better! Dan was the only one I didn't like to begin with, but he really did an amazing job in the last two movies!

I think they all started out perfect, but it all went downhill from there. Rupert? Couldn't fault him. Daniel? He was pretty good. And Emma? I love her, don't get me wrong! But that's the problem! She's too darn likeable! COS was the last film where the directors nailed it, beyond that she's too nice and fun and unHermioneish Having said that, I couldn't think of anyone else who could of played Hermione
