Actress Natalia Tena has given a new interview where she discusses her role as Tonks in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Saying she had not known anything about Harry Potter before winning the role of the Hufflepuff auror, she has since read the books and says that she really liked “Prisoner of Azkaban” and “Goblet of Fire.” She also believes her character may not survive the outcome of book seven noting:

“I reckon she’ll either die really quickly or she’ll kill Bellatrix (Lestrange) at some point. Or she’ll kill one of the big baddies at the end somehow. I really hope Harry dies, though, and I want Neville (Longbottom) to be the one that was the chosen one all along. “

Natalia Tena also talks about her role in the fifth Harry Potter movie, and creating the look the character sports in the film.

I didn’t like some of the things they did at the beginning, to be honest. I really wish she had had pink hair like in the book. They didn’t want to do that because pink would be associated with (Dolores) Umbridge, who is evil. They really didn’t take many risks.

At the beginning I really looked like a punk … and they kind of toned (it) down a bit. And I wasn’t happy with that because in my mind I was thinking “You know what, that’s not what kids are going to expect.”

Thanks Finn!

Guess That Book

Hagrid was wearing his best (and very horrible) hairy brown suit, plus a checked yellow-and-orange tie. This wasn't the worst of it, though; he had evidently tried to tame his hair, using large quantities of what appeared to be axle grease. It was now sli
