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."

I loved the epilogue. I can’t wait to see it in film form… They cast Teddy Lupin, right?

Yes, doughboy6390, Mrs. Weasley really did kill Bellatrix. Ironically, she died the same way as Sirius, by throwing out an arm when she laughed which let Mrs. Weasley do to her, what Bellatrix had done to Sirius!

It must seem strange to Bonnis and the other actors to have “families” with them in the epilogue scene. I bet the youngsters really enjoyed that!

That’s so cool! That’s weird that the actress who plays the daughter is the same age as her though, Lily’s only 9 in the book.

i love bonnie, but i’ve always disliked ginny. I wanted her to die in CoS. (I know that makes me a horrible person lol) However, Bonnie has made Ginny more likable to me. Did any of that make sense?

Interesting interview, thank you for sharing! It’s lovely that her character has come full circle, once standing on the platform as a little girl waiting to go to Hogwarts, wishing Harry good luck, and now standing there with him by her side as her partner with their children, wishing them good luck. A great journey for Bonnie and her character to go on!
