Bonnie Wright is a British actress born February 17, 1991, best known for playing Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter movies. Wright auditioned for the role of Ginny Weasley because her brother said she reminded him of the character. In the first four films, her role was minor, but come Order of the Phoenix, she was one of six to participate in the battle at the Ministry of Magic, and she and Harry hooked up in Half-Blood Prince, increasing Wright's importance in the Harry Potter cast.
Wright reprised her role as Ginny Weasley in the final two-part film adaption of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Wright has also provided the voice of Ginny Weasley in the video game versions of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.
Wright starred in two television movies: 2002's Stranded and 2004's Agatha Christie: A Life in Pictures, where she played the younger version of Agatha Christie. She had a guest role on Disney's The Replacements voicing Vanessa in the season two premiere London Calling. Wright signed to star in Sweat, a short film. Sweat is part of a project of five films called Geography Of The Hapless Heart. She portrayed Mia. The movie has a set release of 2012. She will also play Georgina in the 2012 film The Philosophers.

Bonnie Wright enjoys dance, art, travelling and playing musical instruments, saxophone, the harmonica, piano and recorder, as well as sports including football, swimming, tennis, riding, ice skating, cycling and surfing.

Tropes that apply to this actress include:
- I Am Not Spock: Comes with being in Harry Potter, obviously.
- Mandatory Line: Often the extent of her role in the earlier films.
- Promotion to Opening Titles: Finally got to be listed in the main titles on Half-Blood Prince. Of course, it's not really the "opening" titles, since, like the Star Wars films, the Harry Potter films save all the credits for the end.
- Romance on the Set: With Jamie Campbell Bower, who plays young Grindelwald.
