I would be so excited just to be there. Choosing one actor is hard! I choose Daniel Radcliffe. Because, as so many commenters have mentioned, he plays Harry Potter! And he strikes me as a big HP fan himself.

My favorite Radcliffe moment from the movies is when he enters the Weasleys’ family tent at the Quidditch World Cup at the beginning of Goblet of Fire. He says the line, “I love magic,” with this look of wonder and excitement on his face. To me that moment is what being an HP fan is all about.

I think the person I’d be most excited to see is Daniel Radcliffe. Afterall, he is Harry freakin Potter himself LOL. Also, he seems like such a nice, gracious, and appreciative guy. But honestly I’d be ecstatic to see any of the actors in person. I love them all! I’d be so overwhelmed and happy to be in the presence of any of these fabulous actors.

I would like to see Helena Bonham Carter. She’s a great actress, an even better personality, and is the perfect Bellatrix.

That is a tough question. There is so much talent involved in this series that it makes it difficult to choose, but I suppose Emma Thompson would be at the top of my list. She is one of my favorite actresses and she is an inspiration for me since I want to be a screenwriter someday.

I’d definitely be most excited to see Alan Rickman! He’s an excellent actor who has done a fantastic job at portraying such a complex character!

It’s hard to choose just one. I guess the obvious answer would be Harry Potter himself, Daniel Radcliffe. But everyone has done an amazing job bringing these characters to life, and I’d love to see any cast members.

Daniel Radcliffe. He is the reason why I started reading Harry Potter. I found him attractive in the 4th movie and I got hooked. Best decision of my life.

I would be most excited to see Helena Bonham Carter. I love her style! She is an amazing actress, and I love almost all of her movies. It’s very fun to watch her as Bellatrix in Harry Potter, and it would be beyond amazing to get to see her in person! I’m heading out for vacation to New York, and winning this contest would make it the best vacation ever!!!

I would love to meet Alan Rickman because besides Harry himself – Snape has to be one of the most emotionally challenged characters to play in the entire series. The fact that Snape is not necessarily a “teacher of the year” type character and we all still love him anyway is a testament to Rickman’s acting – that despite the harsh exterior he has shown us the heart of Severus Snape.

I’d love to meet Evanna Lynch. She’s such a huge Harry Potter fan and I know she’d be geeking out as much as I would!

David Thewlis, because he gave Lupin depth beyond the books.

I would be most excited to see Emma Watson on the red carpet. She is always so graceful and elegant, she really is the picture of a lady. This is something that is only enhanced by knowing that she is passionate about human rights, pursues self-improvement and self-awareness through education, and is not scared to express herself through creative endeavors and speak her mind while in the public eye. With all of these attributes, as an individual she embodies some of the best qualities that Hermione’s character represents. All of this is even more impressive because of her youth – instead of using her position of fame for completely selfish aims, she is helping to improve the world she lives in. Because of this she is an inspiration to young people everywhere, showing that being young does not need to mean being ignorant or self-absorbed. Hooray Emma!

Being on the red carpet would have the same feeling as a little kid being inside Honeydukes for the first time. I would have to say I would be most excited to see Emma Watson because she is absolutely beautiful and I would have to tell her I admire her decision to continue her education. But then again I would love to see them all! Dan, Rupert, Evanna, James and Oliver, Matt, the whole gang!!

Her hair was set in elaborate and curiously rigid curls that contrasted oddly with her heavy-jawed face. She wore jeweled spectacles. The thick fingers clutching her crocodile-skin handbag ended in two-inch nails, painted crimson.
