After landing her first big break at a relatively young age, Bonnie Wright has shown tremendous growth as an actress through the early 2010s. At only 10, she made her debut film appearance in "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone," which became a hit and launched a franchise of movies. Wright played Ginny Weasley, the younger sister of main protagonist Ron Weasley. Though her appearance in the first "Harry Potter" film was brief, her character reappeared in the next year's installment, "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets," in a much meatier part: this time around, Ginny, a first-year student at Hogwarts, is possessed by the villainous Tom Riddle into attacking her classmates. Posited as a potential love interest for Harry Potter, Wright's screen time vacillated throughout the films, but her character's arc included joining Dumbledore's Army in 2007's "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," becoming considerably more adept at magic (as demonstrated in the '09 "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince"), and taking part in the pivotal battle in 2011's "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows--Part 2." Besides appearing in that highly-profitable movie franchise, she portrayed the young Agatha Christie in the '04 television film "Agatha Christie: A Life in Pictures." With the end of the "Harry Potter" films, Wright went back to school in "The Philosophers," a thriller about an institution that makes students compete to see who is most fit to survive in the event of nuclear disaster.
