It’s time for another Harry Potter Moment of the Week! (Lowdown: Awesome Potter-themed meme hosted by Uncorked Thoughts!) While I shared my Hufflepuff Pride last week, this one is all about the film cast.
How do you feel about the HP film cast? Any that don’t fit with the image you had?”
Actually I think they’re all spot on. I mean, those films have been going on so long that it’s hard to distinguish what I’ve been given from what I originally imagined pre-film. There are no characters that I think don’t fit, in my opinion they’re all perfectly suited to their roles.
(Some casting director somewhere deserves all the promotions!)
I will point out something that’s always slightly niggled on me though, Hermione’s hair.
(Oh lord, here we go. Switch off now if you don’t want nitpicky nonsense!)
Don’t get me wrong, I bloody love Hermione. I think Emma Watson is a stunning, all round amazing person. I just wish her hair was frizzier. Throughout each book it’s stated how strongly bushy and frizzy her hair is, and I think that it’s only really recreated in the first film:
By the time the second one rolls around, the appropriately bushy hair is replaced with something far more resembling styled and curled than frizzy…
By the time the fourth film happens (yes, it annoys me that there’s hardly any difference between her hair for the Yule Ball and normally, as it’s supposed to be a jaw dropping change, not look like she’s just pinned it!), there’s hardly any semblance of bushy or frizzy, which is awesome for Emma Watson, but annoying in terms of continuity and character depiction.
It’s like making Ron anything other than redheaded!
Rant over. I love the cast! (Really, I do!)
