Bonnie Wright Discusses Ginny and Filming the Epilogue

In a new interview with MTV Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) talks about how Ginny's relationship with Harry came as a surprise to her:

"Being the person who sort of ends up with the hero of this franchise is never something I ever would have imagined," she said of her character becoming Harry's love interest. "It's just been so exciting, so lovely to have something that develops further, and you can make [Ginny] my own and take things from your own life growing up and put those things into it."

Wright also discusses the filming of the epilogue in "Deathly Hallows":
Regarding the much-discussed, heavily hyped epilogue, Wright said the "full-on scene" is a fitting end to the series because the filmmakers chose to shoot it as a stand-alone ending, not just a background for the end credits. She added that one of her last scenes in the epilogue was a particularly surreal moment, because her character started and ended her "Potter" journey in the same place.
"It wasn't my last scene, but it was one of my last scenes. That's where I started the journey of 'Harry Potter,' on the platform, and then to see the girl who's playing our daughter was just psychologically, it was very weird, because she's the same age as me. It was literally having a whole cycle of the journey."

This is so cool! I can picture Bonnie in Sorcerer’s Stone stopping short on the platform. To come full circle must be odd for her. I hope she has a long an lovely career.

That is quite ironic for her character Ginny. She started on Platform 9 3/4 and then ended there too. It has truly come full circle, not just for Bonnie, but for all the actors. What an amazing ten years it’s been. I believe that Bonnie Wright will go on and have a great career as an actress. I believe we will be seeing more of her in the future.

Wow! That is a coincidence that the actress playing her daughter is the same age as she was when she started!

That is so cool. Love her and I love the way she described her experience. That really is “full circle.”

How interesting to hear her view of it all. It can imagine how weird for it to come full circle.
