Witch Fight: Hermione Granger versus Ginny Weasley?

Wands drawn - Hermione Granger and Ginny Weasley

Yep, the wands are drawn in this battle to the death between aspiring witches Hermione Granger and Ginny Weasley.

Granger is the Muggle-born associate of Harry Potter. She’s pulled him out of a few tight spots with her bookish knowledge of magic. Coming from a muggle family, she works hard because she’s got a lot to prove. Granger used a time-bending device to allow her to take twice as many classes in one year and all of her anecdotes start with a visit to the library.

Weasley is from a tight-knit, long-established wizarding family and her father works for the Ministry of Magic. She’s been in tight spots before, when she became enchanted by Tom Riddle’s diary and got sucked into the chamber of secrets. She’s incredibly protective of Harry, as we saw in the Half-Blood Prince, and a plucky young witch who’ll dive into danger to protect her loved ones.

Now, if you were a bespectacled young wizard with a deadly enemy determined to wipe you off the face of the earth, which witch would you rather have at your side? Over to you, Potter fans…

    Both actresses are hot…but taking away from the physical, I’m going to have to be boring and say a nice combination of the two. Hermione because I dunno what it is but if she was real, I think she would be a woman I could really love and respect! However, her uptight attitude would piss me off sometimes so I would also have a bit of Ginny on the side who is more laidback and daring.

    P.S. If I sound perverted, both actresses are over 18!

      Yeah, I didn’t want to comment on physical attributes anyway, since they’re both portraying schoolgirls. I think you made a great point about Hermione being uptight. I like Ginny’s attitude much more though – she just seems like a bit more fun. You don’t often see Hermione just ‘having a laugh’.

    But then I suppose you can’t do much about Hermione’s uptight personality, that how J.K. Rowling created her! Yes, I love Ginny’s personality but found her charcter was poorly developed in the previous three movies, she had very few lines!

    Hermione all the way.

    I think Hermione just gets better and better. She’s book smart and then she’s actually practical and gets to be more book smart, and she’s conflicted and flawed. Her relationship with Ron is brilliant.

    I think Ginny comes across a bit Mary-Sueish in comparison.
