Bonnie Wright Talks Harry Potter Prequel, Ginny Weasley

Ginny Weasley Actress Dishes On Harry Potter Spinoff

Harry Potter fans rejoiced last month upon hearing that the franchise would be continuing with three additional "megamovies."

Titled 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,' the films will be set seventy-years prior to the other Harry Potter installments, raising the question: will the eponymous protagonist and his crew of friends even be in it?

Bonnie Wright told HuffPost Live's Ricky Camilleri in an interview on Monday that she was pretty sure her character, Ginny Weasley, would not be featured.

"It's going to be pre-everything that's happened, so my character wasn't even born," she said.

But worry not: a decade of playing Ginny Weasley was more than enough for Wright.

"I think our dedication to ten years of that story and our involvement was more than I ever could've wanted or asked for so," she explained. "I think we all took our characters to where they could be taken and I think it's exciting for the next story that she's going to tell, and the people who are going to be involved."

Wright's currently participating in the Global Poverty Project's week of living 'Below The Line,' -- an initiative that has participants living under $1.50 a day, like 12 million individuals across the globe do everyday involuntarily.
