My friend Mary (whom I used to go see the Harry Potter movies with back in the day) found this article on The 25 Greatest Harry Potter Characters.
Let me say first of all that I love the Harry Potter series so much that I have actually lost track of the number of times I have read it. This is a great article, pretty spot on (Yes! Luna Lovegood made the top 10!), with some great wit and quotes. This is my favorite part of the article, in reference to Molly Weasley (one of my favorite characters):
In the final book, we get an emphatic reminder that Mrs Weasley is a considerable witch in her own right, and more than capable of bringing the hurt when called upon to do so. Just because someone is red-haired, a bit dumpy or fond of cardigans, it doesn’t mean they can’t kick ass. There’s a valuable lesson there for us all.
I can’t believe I haven’t seen the last movie yet. I. Need. A. Sitter.
