Lastly, we leave you with some quotes of Bonnie’s from the red carpet.
Bonnie Wright (who plays Ginny Weasley) said it was a family member who introduced her to the world of Harry Potter. “My older brother had read the first two so he got me into them. I started reading them and I fell in love with the books—even made sure I had read all of them before we started filming. And you know, I think we all realized we were big fans of the books, even before the films. I would wait until the day they came out and make sure I had the book on the release date.”
And if you need a reason to get hooked on reading, here is a list of what your favorite Potter characters have on their nightstands right now:
Bonnie Wright (a.k.a. Ginny Weasley): “Short stories based around Matisse by A.S. Byatt. Basically they are three short stories each based around a Matisse painting.”
Bonnie attended the Samsung Hope For Children Gala 2014 yesterday, June 10th, in New York City. Photos from the event can be seen at Photogenic.
Bonnie and James and Oliver Phelps visited Florida yesterday to get a sneak peak at Universal’s new Diagon Alley Harry Potter theme park. Lots of photos of Bonnie and the twins were taken throughout the park and have been added to the gallery.
Bonnie’s second short film, Know Thyself, recently screened in London (it screened in New York a few weeks ago). ElleUK reviewed it and got some nice quotes from Bonnie on the film, along with news on her next short film, tentatively titled Have A Nice Day.
Bonnie Wright has come a long way since graduating from Hogwarts as Ginny Weasley. At just 23-years-old, the Harry Potter actress has written and directed Know Thyself, an emotive 8-minute short film.
The single character narrative follows an unnamed boy (played by Christian Coulson) as he stumbles through a forest, wrestling with his grief over the recent loss of a loved one.
‘Landscape as a character or a space in which a character can change is definitely a recurring theme in my work,’ Bonnie told us after a private viewing of the film at London’s The Box.
‘I’d also recently visited upstate New York for the first time and fell in love with the landscape. There was something so beautifully still at the top of the cliff ridges.’
The actor-turned-director is relishing the new challenge so much that she’s already working on her next project, telling us: ‘I am excited to announce that I am currently in the development stage of my next short film.
‘It’s working title is Have A Nice Day.’
We’re just as excited to see it.
Bonnie’s been training for her first marathon the past few months, which takes place this Saturday, 10th May, 2014. The marathon is held by Nike and called We Own The Night. Elle UK teamed up with Bonnie ahead of the big day and posted some photos along with some quotes from Bonnie.
‘I’m hoping the adrenaline will carry me across the finish line.’
Good luck Bonnie!
