Bonnie Wright quotes
- (on being asked how she got the role of Ginny Weasley) "Determination. I stayed as Ginny throughout the whole audition."
- I think everyone sometimes feels intimidated by themselves when they see themselves on the screen.
- I don't know, it's hard to say before we actually do it. It would be quite weird, wouldn't it, because along with Dan there would be hundreds of people there. - On possibly filming the kissing scene with Daniel Radcliffe in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince.
- It's been fun to work with all the people, and experience what not everyone gets to do at such a young age.
- I have had a few people recognize me in public. But I wouldn't like everybody to recognize me. I can still walk across the street and not be noticed. If I was Daniel Radcliffe I think I would find it much harder to deal with.
- Well, it's magic! It's different from stories set in normal life. - On why she likes the Harry Potter books
- She's really kind of open and friendly towards all of us - she likes to have that family ring around us all. She's bubbly on set. [about having Julie Walters as her Mum in Harry Potter]
- I haven't missed any of my education and luckily because I live in London, I haven't had to move away from my home or my friends and that has really helped. I think it would be quite difficult if I were filming in a different part of England. The other people, I definitely admire them for being away from home for so long. But I don't think I have missed anything I'll really regret because I have been able to keep in touch with all my friends. Luckily, when I go back to school, everyone's easy with me coming back. I think it can be quite difficult. [About does she feel she missed anything about her childhood]
- I'm interested in doing more things because I think it'd be interesting to get a new challenge. But I've got my exams coming up and it's quite hard to fit everything in. [about she'd like to do more Films]
- I think we're really privileged to have so many really strong British actors that are interested in doing it. They're all very different in their methods. Sometimes you can be completely wrapped up in what they're doing in a scene. [About her acting experience with Imelda Staunton and Helena Bonham Carter].
- Starting out so young, the idea of 'fame', to me, was for people who were much older - who had won Oscars or done amazing things,I always saw it as something of a much higher calibre. So many girls have become famous for literally nothing - other than falling out of clubs in shocking clothing or going out with a different person every week.
