Default Potter characters from book to film

My opinion from what I imagined them like in the books and how they turned out in film...

Harry - Meant to have jet black hair and 'brilliant' green eyes. Radcliffe has brown hair and blue eyes.

Ron - Supposed to be really really tall and sort of gangly (sp) Rupert always looks quite short in the films

Hermionie - Think they got her pretty well, apart from she has goofy teeth in the first few books. Got very pretty very fast in the films.

Snape - Think they got him pretty much spot in although always imagined him thinner

Bellatrix - Pretty much perfect, a lot like how I imagined her.

Sirius - Hmmm, love Oldman as an actor but really not how I imagined him in the books.

McGonagal - Quite spot on I thought really, although she's a bit more dramatic in the books, but those bits were always left out of the movies.

Malfoy - Pretty good casting but not really sinister enough, looks wise is pretty much spot on though


Will try think of more later.

Ah yeah Umbridge was described as toad like and she was awful in the books. The one in the film is a bit too sickly sweet and you don't get the sinister vibe off her.

I saw the films before I read the books, so when reading the books I always imagined the characters to look like the actors. Wish I had done it the other way round

I pretty much agree but im always so critical of the films because how much they leave out and get wrong pisses me off.

Was gonna do Dumbledore but it's a bit hard with the swich over with the actors. Though I remember in one of the films he comes across as a grumpy old man which is horribly wrong.

Harris was not a good Dumbledore, Gambon was better but still was too heavy handed

Hermione's hair wasn't frizzy enough and her teeth weren't big enough
Ron didn't have a long nose or enough freckles
Harry was fine besides the eye colours
Sirius was totally different to how I imagined
Actually everyone from the age range-Lupin, Sirius, Lily and James are wayyyy too old, they're only meant to be in their 30's
Umbridge was totally different to how I imagined

And that's all I can currently think of.

Everyone's pretty much the same, except Daniel Radcliffe is terrible, and Richard Harris >>>>>> Michael Gambon

Richard Harris WAS the Dumbledore I imagined

yeah, I still read Dumbledores voice as his when I read the book. but it's odd because I've not see the first 2 films in a long time

The guys that played the Twins are pretty terrible and nothing like I imagined them as well, the twins were mischievous and witty but in the films it was just poorly acted

Think they just casted the first ginger twins they found, not realising they'd have to stick with these all the way through

Just like Daniel Radcliffe

Yeah the Weasley twins in the book are 100x better. Never took to the film ones at all. They seem quite cool in the books whereas in the films they seem a bit dorky

I'd say they got Neville quite well in the early films. But then some of his lines and parts were totally changed in the later ones and it wasn't him at all.

Ginny was far too posh for someone grown up in a house of 3949 and in the middle of nowhere

can't act to save her life either

Ginny is also very plain in the films. I imagined her really pretty in the books.

Mad Eye Moody was quite spot on I'd say, although think he's meant to look a little more disfigured in the books.
