Bonnie and her mother Shelia Teague attended a breakfast talk this morning for Oxfam’s Mother Appeal. The charity is being held with the hopes to raise attention and money for mothers worldwide.
Some quotes Bonnie made at the talk this morning were posted on twitter:
@thisisbwright “mums everywhere have incredible hope and optimism” [source]
@thisisbwright: “Get some friends around for a get together & do something simple for Oxfam. Could be 6 friends, could be 100!” [source]
In addition to that, there’s photos of Bonnie and her mother at the breakfast, audio of Bonnie talking about the cause, an instagram clip of Bonnie, and a YouTube video with Bonnie talking about the Mother Appeal.
Today, February 17th, 2014, marks Bonnie’s 23rd birthday! We here at So-Bonnie would like to wish her the happiest of birthdays! We hope she has a wonderful day and spends it surrounded by family and friends.
After the Dark (formally The Philosophers) opened in US theaters yesterday. While it only opened in select theaters, it’s also available to download on iTunes.
Here are a few reviews that have mentioned Bonnie and her role in the film.
“D’Arcy is effective as the enigmatic Zimit, and an attractive array of young actors including Sophie Lowe, Rhys Wakefield, Freddie Stroma, Bonnie Wright and Daryl Sabara bring apt heart and conviction to their roles as budding academics.”[source]
“…while suggesting that supporting actress Bonnie Wright might have been a stronger female lead.” [source]
“Wright as Georgina has grown past Ginny Weasley in this film! Her character is a highly intelligent and doesn’t much like being made a fool of. Never one to cut corners or let emotions speak for her, Wright portrays this character as straight forward, no nonsense woman with reason for every decision she makes. I truly enjoyed watching Wright in this role.” [source]
Misleading headlines, ahoy! According to many publications, in a new interview with actress Emma Watson, JK Rowling was said to have regretted putting Ron/Hermione together and wishes she’d put Harry/Hermione together instead. With only a few measly quotes to go on — and not the entire interview — the story spread like wildfire, leading to even Bonnie being asked about it. Her quotes are below:
Interestingly, Bonnie Wright, who played Ginny in the films, thinks her character would have coped. “Ginny is a tough cookie so she’d have been fine,” she assured me at InStyle’s Bafta party at Dartmouth House. “She dated Dean Thomas before Harry, after all.”
While we do agree that Ginny Weasley would be just fine without Harry Potter (Ginny IS tough!), fans need not even have to worry about that. The full interview is now out and JK Rowling did not say she regretted putting Ron/Hermione together OR that she thinks Harry/Hermione should have been together instead. Leave it to the pesky tabloids to make a story out of nothing! Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione shall remain happy together just as JK Rowling intended in the books.
We’ll leave you with a lovely quote JK Rowling’s said before on the Harry/Ginny coupling:
“Harry and Ginny are real soul mates,” she said. “They’re both very strong and very passionate. That’s their connection, and they’re remarkable together.”
Bonnie and her friends attended the InStyle pre-BAFTA party this evening. Photos of Bonnie posing for photographers and partaking in a photo shoot with her friends can be seen at Photogenic.
After the Dark (formally known as The Philosophers) arrives in selected theatres this Friday, February 7th. Lots of clips have come online and many of them feature Bonnie as Georgina.
Finally, there’s a video of Bonnie behind the scenes on set talking about her character and filming. Thanks to MuggleNet for that.
Bonnie posted another music video she directed back in 2012. The song is titled Sea Ess, by musician George Schuster. The video can be viewed on her production vimeo account. There are also photos avaliable behind the scenes, taken by Joseph D. Conway. The images featuring Bonnie can be viewed at Photogenic.
