I would most love to meet Emma Watson. I just think she’s beautiful, and such a great actress. And Hermione’s my favorite character :)

Tom Felton for sure. I have just been captivated by him since the beginning of the series! It would be surreal to actually meet him in person!

Is J.K. Rowling going to be there? If so, then I would be ecstatic to meet her. She is by far my favorite author, and HP has been such a big part of my life, so it would just be beyond awesome to meet her.

I am most excited to see Daniel Radcliffe because his I really have come to admire his growth as an actor not only within the Harry Potter franchise, but also branching out into the legendary world of Broadway. As far as bringing the character of Harry Potter alive, Daniel has really put his heart into each of his performances and truly embraced the lovable, 11-year-old wizard we all grew up with. Yet with all the fame that has surrounded him, Daniel has learned to remain humble and recognize his ten years within the franchise as a gift and a dream come true. Radcliffe is definitely a young actor on the rise and it would be an honor to meet such a talented compassionate person.

Rupert Grint by far. I think all three members of the trio have been so well acted over the past 10 years, but I’ve always had a love for Ron’s character even before the films so to see the individual who brought that character to life would be exceptionally awesome!

I am most excited to see Ralph Fiennes on the red carpet because he has portrayed Voldemort phenomenally. Ralph has solidified the description of Voldemort that J.K. Rowling has provided us with and has made the Harry Potter films that he portrays Voldemort in, my favorites. Ralph is an incredible actor and his extraordinary talents are recognized by his two Academy Award nominations and the list of classic films that he has been a part of. I want to personally thank Ralph for bringing the magic of J.K. Rowling to life with his timeless portrayal of Lord Voldemort. I hope to see you (Ralph) on July 11! Thank you.

I am most excited to see Rupert Grint on the red carpet! As much as I love all of the other cast members, Rupert has always been my favorite. When I read the books, I pictured Ron Weasley differently, but after watching the movies, he made Ron Weasley come alive in a way that I couldn’t imagine. I absolutely adored him and have always enjoyed watching him. Not only that, but I love watching his interviews. He seems like such a down-to-earth type, quiet type of guy but then he is so believable as a character in a film that he is nothing like that. I have always admired him and would love to meet him soon :))

I’d be most excited to see Alan Rickman. Firstly because he is an absolutely fantastic actor. I’ve loved him in everything that he has done. Secondly, because I am a huge Severus Snape fan and think that he is a fascinating character. Alan Rickman has done a superb job of his portrayal of Severus Snape. He’s known from the beginning everything about the character that we didn’t know until much later. There would be no way of playing this character correctly unless one knew all the relevant information. In fact, I have a Snape lego keychain, a Snape action figure, Snape’s wand, and I’m dressing up as Snape for Part 2. The dressing as Snape will be interesting since I am female and have blond hair. I’m planning on dying it black. I bought dark mark tattoos to put on so we are going to have to do the scene where Snape reveals the dark mark in Goblet of Fire.

I would love to meet any of them but if I have to pick just one I would say Ralph Fiennes. He is such a talented actor and he makes a deliciously evil Voldemort!

I am most excited to see Rupert Grint because I feel like he is one of the three main characters who really delved into his book character and provided heartfelt, comedic acting at every turn. He really became Ron Weasley which I couldn’t thank him enough for! Good luck to all!

Gosh, I’m having a hard time deciding between Michael Gambon and Maggie Smith. All of the actors and actresses in Harry Potter are so wonderfully unique- it would be an honor to meet/see all of them. I believe that I would be most awestruck, though, in the presence of Professor McGonagall and Dumbledore. Both play such genuine, wise, and strong characters. They play there roles so admirably well that I ‘m pretty sure they aren’t merely acting… Hogwarts must be real… =).

I would be most excited to meet Evanna Lynch on the red carpet, since she’s both an amazing actress as Luna and also seems like a cool fan of the HP series. I’ve loved every single moment of her on screen as Luna.

I’d like to meet Emma Watson because I think she is cute.

Posted by david000 on June 29, 2011, 01:59 PM report to moderator

I would be thrilled to meet any of the actors but I guess my favorite is Rupert Grint.

Posted by Dudeabides on June 29, 2011, 02:39 PM report to moderator

Does it have to be an actor? I’d actually love to meet Steve Kloves the most, if he’s going to be there. As an aspiring screenwriter, I’ve watched his work on these movies with great interest and I think he’s done a wonderful job navigating the series alongside four very different directors.
