I am a Harry Potter fan! I love Harry Potter! I feel bad for those that don't - they are seriously missing out. But then again, I don't expect nor do I want everyone to share my same passion. But many, many, many people do.
I'm not a member of the National Harry Potter Fan Club, I don't spend time on MuggleNet.com, and I don't know all the rules to Quidditch, but I love Harry Potter! I find it fascinating and simply amazing what one woman's imagination has done to the world. Harry Potter and his life are like real to me. His adventures are a part of my childhood (and let's be honest, adulthood). I got so excited at the last movie - I felt like I was seeing old friends again!
I remember way back when there was a big dispute over whether school children in Georgia or somewhere should be allowed to read these wizarding tales. Then it eventually reached Utah and my brothers and I got hooked. My littlest brother, Mark, and I have been the most devout in our family. We have read all the books, seen all the movies, and always enjoyed talking about them together. Mark even bares a scar on his back because of Harry Potter...let me explain, it's actually quite funny...now.
It was Mark's night to do the dishes, he wanted help, but I refused. He said if I didn't help he would tell me who died in Harry Potter #5 which I hadn't finished reading yet. Well, I said I wouldn't help and he better not dare say anything. But he did!! Can you believe it?! He told me who died and ruined it for me!!! Well, I had a fork in hand and chucked it at his back (would have been his face, had he been looking at me). That's how devout I am. Now he has a scar from the fork prongs! We laugh now - didn't then. But what better way to remember Harry Potter than with a scar?!
Since I am an Energy Profile fan as well, I thought it would be fun to Type the characters as well as the actors. I thought they did an excellent job casting the characters! Most were the same Type as the character; and if not it was their secondary.
Harry Potter - Type 4 - loyal, devote, the best at everything, unique
Daniel Radcliffe - Type 4/3
Hermoine Granger - Type 4/2 - studious, structured, smart, plays by the rules
Emma Watson - Type 4/1 (dressed her in Type 2)
Ron Weasley - Type 1 - funny, random, great best friendRupert Grint - Type 4/1 (this was surprising to me, because he plays a T1 so well, but looking at his pics he is a T4) (dressed him in Type 3)
**The 3 main characters are all Type 4's, no wonder they were able to stay so committed to filming for 7 years!**
Dumbledore - Type 2/3 - consistent, methodical, good-hearted, determined
1st Dumbledore (Richard Harris) - Type 2/3
2nd Dumbledore (Michael Gambon) - Type 3
Voldemort/Tom Riddle - Type 4 - wants to be the best, cynical (this can happen when T4's don't manage their critical eye), thinks there should only be one kind of wizard - black and white
Ralph Fiennes - Type 4
Hagrid - Type 1/2 - loves animals, loves kids, gentle and caring
Robbie Coltrane - Type 1
Snape - Type 4 - loner, keeps promises
Alan Rickman - Type 4
Draco Malfoy - Type 4 - thinks he's better than everyone
Tom Felton - Type 4
Neville Longbottom - Type 2 - timid, trusting
Matthew Lewis - Type 2/4 or 4/2
Ginnie Weasley - not sure - Type 2 or 4
Bonnie Wright - Type 4
Professor Umbridge - Type 1 - a depressed Type 1 that wants control and power - ooh, I don't like her!
Imelda Stauton - Type 1
Sirius Black - Type 3 or Type 4
Gary Oldman - Type 4/1
Bellatrix Lestrange - Type 4 - just plain evil
Helena Bonham Carter - Type 4
And there are way too many to go on. But I covered the most important. I hope you enjoyed that list!
Most were exactly how I imagined, except for Voldermort. I wanted his cheeks to be sunken deep, and his look to be more life-like and dangerous. I think he looks like a wanna-be snake, not as scary as I was hoping. This is closer to how I imagined him:
|This is a picture of the actor who plays Mr. Filch.|
Kind of ironic - they should have casted him as Voldemort, very scary.
Oh and of course, I must type the creator of all this magic - JK Rowling. She has been a little tricky for me, I thought she was a Type 3 for a long time, but looking closer I think she is a Type 2 with a secondary 3. Let's here it for 2/3's! Woohoo.
This was said of her success: "According to Forbes, Jo is the first person to become a billionaire by writing books and is the second richest female entertainer (behind Oprah) in the world." Read the entire article here.
