It's hard to imagine this impish little boy could be such a troublemaker. But as much as he likes to run his mouth, he's really just a big ol' wuss.

Nineteen-year-old Bonnie Wright's role as Ginny Weasley has developed quite a bit over the past few years. Perhaps it's because she has caught the eye of a well-known Hogwarts student — even though Ron seems fairly oblivious.
