Slytherin to Bonnie Wright's chamber of secrets.
The actress, who portrayed Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter franchise, recently revealed that she was frustrated that her character didn't have as large of a role in the films as she did in the books by J.K. Rowling.
"There was just no room for much change in those scripts," Wright shared on the Aug. 29 episode of the Inside of You with Michael Rosenbaum podcast. "There were a million executives going through them all."
The 32-year-old, who first starred in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone at 9 years old, went on to explain how she struggled with an internal dialogue over how her character portrayal would come across to viewers.
"I think what I maybe took—which I don't take so much to heart now—is I kind of felt that maybe my anxiety was about like, 'Oh, I'm going to be seen as badly portraying this character,' rather than later realizing that I wasn't really given the opportunity to do that," Wright continued. "So it wasn't really my 'fault,' exactly."
But the fans of Hogwarts' finest had her back, despite Wright feeling the filmmakers could have fit in a larger role for Gilly, who she played in all eight films, from 2001 to 2011.
"And when fans do share that disappointment, they do it in a way where they're like, 'We know it wasn't you. We just wanted more of you.' And that's the same with every character," she added. "If only they could've been five-hour-long movies, but it would've taken probably two years to film each one or something."
Wright also noticed that a lot was changed from the original book series and "a lot of the scenes of every character were chopped down from the book to the film. So you didn't really have as much to show in the film."
"Sometimes that was a little disappointing," she admitted, "because there were parts of the character that just didn't get to come through because there weren't the scenes to do that. So that made me feel a bit anxious or just frustrated, I guess."
Twenty years after her Harry Potter debut, Wright reunited with many costars including Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson and Tom Felton, to celebrate the first film's 20th anniversary hosted by HBO Max in 2021. The streaming service has since announced an upcoming TV series based on all seven books.
"Happy 20th Anniversary Potterheads!" Watson wrote on Instagram at the time. "Thank you to the fans that have continued to show their support well after the last chapter closed. The magic of the world wouldn't exist without you. Thank you for fighting to make it such an inclusive and loving place."
