Bonnie finished live below the line yesterday by appearing on Channel News 5. Video of her appearance is here on YouTube, but only available to those in the UK. If anyone is able to upload it for viewers outside the UK, please feel free to send us a copy. There’s also an article that highlights a bit about what she talked about on Channel News 5.
Also, Bonnie had been keeping up with Metro, where she posted small diary entries everyday, highlighting her experience and thoughts throughout.
Last night was difficult as I was surrounded by friends drinking and eating out in the park; you realise that living below the line alienates you from everyday society. It made me re-think about poverty within this country and how often when we talk about poverty we think of countries such as Africa or India but we have high levels of poverty in London that need addressing. There are great initiatives such as soup kitchens and organisations such as Feeding the 5K that redistribute waste food across the UK. There is a lot we can get involved in locally.
You can read all of her entries here.
There’s a new article on the royal family’s visit to the WB studios, this time with a rather endearing remark about Bonnie telling Prince Harry he could be a Weasley due to his red hair.
Meanwhile, Harry was told by actress Bonnie Wright—who plays Ginny Weasley in the films—that with his red hair, he could be part of the Weasley family.

Bonnie has started her third year of Live Below the Line, where she plans to live on £1 a day for the entire week. The Metro has posted a great article and accompanying image with her today where she talks about her past experiences living below the line and her plans for this week.
‘Before we start to tackle extreme poverty we need to understand what it is,’ she says. ‘People underestimate how much planning the challenge takes. If you don’t plan, you’ll have a very difficult five days. The mistake I made when I did the challenge last year was not having enough variety – if you just have soup for five days, it becomes very repetitive.’

Bonnie faced her food heaven or hell today on BBC1′s Saturday Kitchen Live, where she discussed her involvement with the Live Below the Line charity. Photos from the show have been added to our gallery (many of the photos are courtesy of rupertbonnie-gw, who graciously gave us permission to host her photos – thank you!).

Bonnie visited the Warner Bros. Studio Tour London: The Making of Harry Potter yesterday, along with Harry Potter co-star Matthew Lewis, where they got to speak and meet with the Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry as they toured the studios. JK Rowling was also in attendance. Not many photos of Bonnie at the event have surfaced, but there are a few here.
Bonnie tweeted about meeting the Royal family on her twitter:
Met William, Harry and Kate at the studios this morning – how surreal
Even though the news section of the site hasn’t been as up to date as we’d like (due to busy schedules), we’ve been trying to keep the galleries updated as much as possible, and here’s a quick run down of the last few months worth of events:
While in LA a few months back, Bonnie attended LoveGold Celebrates “How To Survive A Plague” and Oscars Digital PhotoBooth, where she posed with The Philosophers co-star Sophie Lowe. On Oscar day, she went to the 21st Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation’s Oscar Viewing, where she posed with The Philosophers co-star Jacob Artist. Back in London a few weeks later, she attended the Esquire Little Black Book Party, ABSOLUT Elyx Launch Party At The Box and made a speech at the GPP Ambassadors for IF Campaign.
