did she get a haircut
does it make anyone else uncomfortable that they changed her entire race because she went out with Ron in their sixth year
isn’t that what happened???
they changed a character’s entire race because she as a character became important and relevant for a short amount of time
Umm, no. They did not change her entire race simply because she dated Ron. Actually think about it. Up until the sixth book, she was a background character that was only ever mentioned in passing, so she wasn’t given a physical description. Then in the sixth book, Lavender was finally described, as having ‘pale skin and dirty blonde hair’. Well, the first few Harry Potter movies came out before the Half-Blood Prince book did, so the casting directors did what they wanted with the character.
Another thing, the Lavender Brown from the first few movies only appeared in the first few movies. Lavender didn’t even appear in the 4th and 5th movies, because again, she was a background character, and wasn’t vital to the story. The only reason her race was changed was because a physical description was finally in the books, and it didn’t fit what the directors had, so they had to recast her. It was not because she dated Ron.
Somebody spread this shit because I refuse to have this turn into some social justice bullshit
Lavender’s looks weren’t vital to anything though, not like child Lily’s eye fail. Why did that even happen? Daniel couldn’t tolerate contacts for eight movies, not sure why she couldn’t for a few scenes. Also, Harry’s and Hermione’s hair were far off. Just really not buying into the director’s sudden concern for accurate book-described looks….but I digress. They could have kept the first Lavender so long as she could play an awkward, infatuated teenager.
Okay, can I just clarify some things? Daniel tried very VERY hard to put in contacts to have the correct eyes color. It was not a tolerance issue, it was an “I am allergic to them and could lose my eyesight” issue. Second, Jo and The original director had a conversation about casting. Jo really wanted to stick to physical description because it was so important, but when she met Emma and when she met Daniel, they were just so HARRY and so HERMIONE that she said she would rather have on point characters than on point descriptions. The directors have changed over the years, and as the movies got more popular, the need to stay true to as much as possible became less important. Jo was engrossed in writing, as well, so the directors began to take more liberties into their own hands. So, yes, there are flaws, but sometimes the flaws have reasons behind them too.

this had sixty notes last night
I’m still down for it.
dating an identical twin scares me bc what if i get them confused
i read a book once where this girl was romantically involved with this guy who had a twin and they would punk her all the time and be like which one is your boyfriend you have to kiss the right one and then it turned out one of them was evil and trapped her in a dungeon with a bunch of rats or some shit
but that’s like, worst case scenario
apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad fuck” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.
this gives me hope.
mara wilson is also the faceless old woman who lives in your home, so you know she’s got your best interests at heart
