How do you cast 11 year olds who are just the right amount of geeky for a film franchise projected to last 10 years?
I also bet they weren't expecting Daniel Radcliffe to end up being the shortest of the three
I liked her response to the question asking if she was surprised that casting went with good looking people... 'I'm not an idiot'.
Weirdly, I remember when the first movie came out, I told some friends that I thought Daniel Radcliffe was "soooooo hot." (DISCLAIMER: We were all 11 years old so he was our age) They all made fun of me and told me that he looked like a nerd.
Now, thanks to the kinds of things he likes performing in, I've seen photos of his bare ass.
Then theres Luna, who is the best cast character in cinema history.
What? I mean, Daniel Radcliffe and Rupert Grint are good-looking but they’re no runway models. Normal-looking actors are pretty much the norm in British films/commercials anyways aren’t they?
She was only talking about Hermione, but did not want the others to feel like shit, so included them.
“No, they don’t have to be green. The only really important thing is that his eyes resemble Lily’s”
One of the best decisions that was controversial was Curaons decision to change them into regular clothes rather than wizard robes all the time, which I feel translated very well and was probably a factor in the whole "damn they're all hot now" thing. I thought it made it seem more realistic
i feel like if daniel radcliffe and emma watson didn't end up being so good looking and rupert grint didn't end up being so...plain the harry/hermione ship in the fandom probably wouldn't have been as powerful as it is today. plus have you seen british tv? their main characters aren't beautiful models like they are in hollywood, they're more realistic and average looking. makes the show much more relatable in my opinion.
