I’d most like to meet Gary Oldman because his portrayal of Sirius, my favorite character from the series, was awesome.

Also, Mr. Oldman is a legend; he’s been in a number of my favorite movies, including PoA, Fifth Element, and the Batman movies.

I am most excited to see Evanna Lynch. I think she’s an amazing actress and she does an absoultely fantastic portrayal of Luna, who happens to be my favorite character. Really I’d like to see and perhaps meet everyone, but Evanna in particular.

I would be most excited to see and meet Alan Rickman. He is my favourite actor of all time, and I’ve never seen a movie that Alan has been in that I haven’t liked immensely. He has portrayed Severus Snape in the Harry Potter movies seemlessly, and I would love to talk with him about how he pulled off the mean, sarcastic Snape for so many movies. I am also an aspiring teen screenwriter, and since he has produced and directed some movies of his own, and has acted in many of them, I would also like to ask him about how to get started in the movie industry as a screenwriter. I would also praise him about his presence. He is a famous movie actor and yet somehow he manages to stay under the press’ radar and is yet able to speak out about topics he feels strongly about. Frankly, he is an amazing man and I would love to be able to speak with him more throughly.

“Which Harry Potter actor are you most excited to see on the red carpet and why?”

How to pick just one!?!?! If I won this I would bring my friend’s 11 year old daughter who is such a big fan of Tonks and Lupin (as am I). So, for her (and myself) I say I would love to meet David Thewlis. He has played one of our favorite characters so wonderfully and I know it would make her year! I would absolutely love to be at the premiere for so many selfish reasons, but as someone who has always valued the importance of reading to and with children, I would love to reward my young friend with the fantastic prize!!!

I’d be most excited to meet Emma Watson, she does an amazing job portraying Hermione and she seems so genuine and well grounded. Alan Rickman and Emma Thompson are a close second though!

I would love to meet Julie Walters because she is a great actress, with a wickedly wonderful sense of humor and made “Molly Weasley” come ‘alive’ in the HP movie series and proved once again – NEVER JUDGE A BOOK BY THEIR COVER (or dress robes for that matter). Just because you may be ‘perceived as weak’ doesn’t mean you are – true strength and character comes through determination and that love can overpower anything or anyone – even Bellatrix. Molly proved that and so did Neville and Luna. I always love it when the ‘underdog’ proves to be the true winner!

Emma Watson!!!!!!

I would love to meet Daniel Radcliffe. While I love the way he portrays the beloved character of Harry Potter, I think that he has made amazing and inspirational strides for LGBT advocacy through the Trevor Project. As someone who has seen the effects of LGBT prejudice, his work truly hits home. He is truly an inspirational role model, and I would love to have the honor to meet him.

I would be thrilled to meet any of the amazing actors or actresses that have brought my favorite books to life so wonderfully.

Alan Rickman, most definitely.That would just be a dream come true. I’ve been a “die hard” fan of his for four years now, and to meet him in person would just complete my life, no joke. Though I have always enjoyed his portrayal of the Potions Master, after watching his flawless performance in Order of the Phoenix back in 2007, a sudden spark of deep admiration was ignited. I’ve been a Rickmaniac since then, and always will be. He seems to be so down to earth, and really cares about the fans. I really admire the fact that he doesn’t like talking about Snape because he doesn’t want to spoil other children who have not read the series yet. I really respect him for that.

I would find it positively awesome to meet Emma Watson or Bonnie Wright. I’d have to ask them all kinds of fashion questions. :) And I’d have to ask Bonnie about Jamie B.Cambell’s new role as Jace in the City of Bones movie… But, let’s face it… meeting any actor that has been part of this movie series would be~ earth shatteringly exciting!!!!!
