J.K Rowling is a local name that has become famous and known all around the world. Her Harry Potter novels and now the ever-enlarging Harry Potter permit, have resulted in a whole lot of new generation of readers and puzzled everyone with how they do their magic.
Say anything which you can concerning the book and the films, but the truth is that there exist differences between how some of the characters are depicted in the book and how they appear in the films.
How then was it possible to portray the characters that were only imagined by J.K. Rowling in the films that have been produced by Warner Bros? We have prepared a list of these 12 differences that will give you the idea of how the characters who only appear in the book as imaginations finally appear on the big screens.
12) Narcissa Malfoy: This character is played by actress Hellen McCrory. Narcissa Malfoy is described in the book as a drowned woman due to her long white hair. However, movie designers gave her hair two different tones. Which one do you think carries the day?
11) Bill Weasley: This is played by actor Domhnall Gleeson and is described as a guy with a completely disfigured face full of scars. Thanks to Fenrir Greyback for loving him just the way he is. It is noticeable from the movies that he has fewer scars on his face as opposed to the description in the books.
10) Rufus Scrimgeour: Played by actor Bill Nighy and is described as a man who looks like a lion with graying ginger hair, glasses with rims like a wire, and a limped whenever he walks. But Mill Nighy’s costume was a little bit soft for the look of the films where it was given a darker tone.
9) Dolores Umbridge: It is played by Imelda Staunton and depicted in the book as having more likeness to a frog because of her round bulging eyes, pale, loose skin, and a large mouth. Imelda did a commendable job at how he brought the unbearable character to life regardless of how her costume was designed.
8) Minerva McGonagall: Played by the unmatched Maggie Smith. He is depicted as being only 56-years of age when Harry first got to Hogwarts. However, because Maggie Smith was just brilliant in the way she portrayed the character, the small difference can be forgiven.
7) Mrs. Dursley: Played by actress Fiona Shaw. She is described as having an extraordinarily long neck that aids in her spying habits, and also a blonde hair that her son took over her. Although this is not depicted in the movies, Fiona is quite straightforward on how she acts Mrs. Dursley.
6) Viktor Krum: Played by a famous Bulgarian actor and a bodybuilder Stanislav Yanevski. The book’s description shows that he is having a crooked nose, thick eyebrows, as well as dark hair. In movies, they just decided not to show Stanislav’s hair!
5) Alastor Moody: Acted by Brendan Gleeson, Alastor is described as a man with a disfigured face and a missing nose tip in the books. Movies have also included the real Brendan’s nose as described and that is commendable. Just try to imagine how he would look for each film!
4) Severus Snape: Acted by Alan Rickman, the late, and described as only 31-years of age when he first encountered Harry in the book. This has been easily looked down upon by fans from all the place as Alan has been considered as the most quintessential Snape that ever existed.
3) Ronald Weasley: Acted by Rupert Grint. He is described as A long-nosed boy and covered in freckles. However, Rupert’s nose is not anywhere near long and is also missing the freckles. However, no one would play the role other than Rupert Himself.
2) Hermione Granger: Acted by the one described as headstrong and intelligent, and that is Emma Watson. His hair is described in the book as a thick bush of chestnut, and also have large front teeth. At first, Watson was given artificial teeth but was later removed as his natural ones would do just fine.
1) Harry Potter: Acted by Daniel Radcliffe. His mother was described as a woman who had green eyes and father as a man of wild hair who refused the styles. In their first film, Radcliffe was given green contacts, which he would soon realize that he was allergic to on set. CGI artists were forced to touch his eyes in the last scene. After talking with J.K. Rowling, it was then decided that the eye-color doesn’t matter provided that they matched that of his mother, Lily Potter.
