Bonnie Francesca Wright[2][3] (born 17 February 1991 in London, England)[4] is a British actress and fashion model. She is best known for playing Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter fantasy film series.

Early life and education

Wright was born in London, England, the daughter of Sheila Teague and Gary Wright, owners of jewellery company Wright & Teague. She attended Prior Western Primary School and later the King Alfred School in North London for her secondary education.[citation needed] During the filming of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 and Part 2, Wright began attending London's University of the Arts: London College of Communication, to study Film and Television Production Manager. She plans to continue acting and to work behind-the-scenes after filming Harry Potter.[5][6]



Harry Potter

Wright auditioned for the role of Ginny Weasley because her brother said she reminded him of the character.[5] Wright appears in the first film, Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, only in a small scene set at London King's Cross railway station, where her character meets Harry Potter while watching four of her older brothers board the Hogwarts express. Her role became more prominent with the second movie, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, in which her character begins studies at Hogwarts while dealing with a very powerful secret diary that begins to seize her soul and consciousness. Wright's role in the next film, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was significantly smaller, but in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire she had a slightly larger role and in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix she had a role as one of the six characters fighting in the climactic battle. Wright reprises her role in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, where her character plays a central role as Harry Potter's love interest.
With a bigger part Wright received mostly positive reviews. Variety wrote, "Bonnie Wright’s Ginny intrigues as the sort of initial plain Jane who keeps growing on you."[7]
Wright reprised her role in the final two films Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 and Part 2. Wright has also provided the voice of Ginny Weasley in the video game versions of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Wright appeared in two made-for-television movies: 2002's Stranded as the younger version of Sarah Robinson and 2004's Agatha Christie: A Life in Pictures, where she played the younger version of Agatha Christie.[8] She had a guest role on The Disney Channel's The Replacements voicing Vanessa in the season two premiere "London Calling".
Wright signed to appear in Sweat, a short film which is part of a project of five films called Geography of the Hapless Heart, a feature length film about "the complexity of intimacy, shot in five international locations around the world." Wright portrays Mia and the movie has a set release of 2012.[9][10]
