Bonnie Wright is a newcomer to the Harry Potter films. Bonnie plays Ron Weasley's sister, Ginny. At 11 years old, she's just getting started in movies, but Bonnie has plenty of other interests. We talked to Bonnie about soccer, surfing, and traveling around the world.

Q: Have you read all of the Harry Potter books?
Yes. I finished the fourth one when I was 10. I think they get better and better with each one, but there's a really good storyline in book four.

Q: Why do you like the Harry Potter books?
Well, it's magic! It's different from stories set in normal life and, like I said, it has a really good storyline. Plus, I like all of the characters.

Q: Who's your favorite character?
Hagrid, because he's a giant. He looks really mean on the outside, but he's really soft on the inside.

Q: Did you, Daniel, Emma, or Rupert see each other off the set?
Yes. We just talked and kind of hung out.

Q: What do you like to do for fun?
Well, I like [soccer] as a sport. I have done surfing for about a year. [I surfed in] Australia.

Q: It sounds like you're quite the traveler. How many countries have you been to?
America, Australia, India, Spain, Italy, and France.

Q: If you could go back to one place, where would you go?
I like France quite a lot, and I like Italy.

Q: What's your favorite school subject?
I like art and science. I like doing clay work. It's different from drawing on a page because you have something to mold into different shapes. It's quite visual, it's a thing you can hold and feel, and that makes it different from drawing.
