Today I will be rounding up all the Harry Potter characters and choosing my favourite five.
Although a rather minor character in the books I feel that his increased role in the last two films created a recognisable follower of Voldemort.
Scabior takes on the role of the leader of the Snatchers in the last two films and is the one who captures Harry, Ron and Hermione before leading them to Malfoy Manor. In the last film he can be seen during the battle of Hogwarts where he plummets to his death when the Covered bridge collapses.
Where would we be without this old fellow? Although slightly mad sometimes and supporting a worrying obsession with magical creatures, Hagrid has always been a sanctum for Harry, and plays a vital role in most of the stories.
3. Minerva Mcgonagall
I suppose the reason I like the character of Minerva Mcgonagall, is because she (after Dumbledore) is the main figure of authority within Hogwarts. She plays a big part in both the films and books but doing just enough to remain as a sideline character.
Her role in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 was significantly increased and she was seen in many scenes commanding the forces that were defending Hogwarts.
2. Lucius Malfoy
What is there to say about Lucius Malfoy! The Rich Death Eater, one minute striding in and out of the ministry, the next minute torturing Muggles. During his first appearances he portrayed such an image of grandeur and power until the last films where he was taken prisoner in his own house, scared of his own master.
1. Bellatrix Lestrange
And last but not least Bellatrix Lestrange.
This slightly mad and devoted follower of Voldemort appears in the last 4 books and last 4 films. I have to admit that when I saw he portrayal in the fifth film, I wasn’t that impressed however after the sixth, seventh and eighth films I was in no doubt.
She’s in no doubt my favourite character just for the bizarity of her actions and the lengths to which she will go to impress Voldemort. And of course her downfall during the battle of Hogwarts.
