My favourite is actually Hermione throughout the movie and book.
Hermione! because she’s awesome.
The best book of the entire series, I hope the film does it justice, will be a spectacle anyway, I am sure.
Severus Snape! I was the only person of all my friends to believe he was a good guy after reading Half Blood Prince! Alan Rickman just makes him even more amazing!
My favourite Harry Potter character? SNAPE! Love him, especially in this final installment. Go Alan Rickman!
Drat, pressed enter before I had the chance to type that I think that Snape is my favourite character, so complex and has such a great story arc.
I just rewatched The Halfblood Prince last night and Luna gets funnier with each repeat viewing. Her delivery kills me.
Snape!! We still sing the “Mysterious Ticking Noise” song whenever we hear a metronome.
Favourite character is probably Sirius. Can’t wait for the movie!
My fave HP character is Harry’s godfather, Sirius Black. He’s wise, supportive, and can shape shift into an animal. How cool is that?
I’m gonna go for Hermione on this one!
Woo hoo! We’ve been waiting for this one… but it’s coming in two parts… arrgh!
Completely forgot to put my favourite character… Ron Weasley is definitely my fave.
I am a Ron Weasley fan. He’s just very real – not a hero, not a brainiac… full of all the normal problems and challenges and conflicts of real life.
Severus Snape! I find Alan Rickman’s performances mesmerizing.
I know I don’t qualify for the tickets (darn!) but I like Neville Longbottom. He is in the background, but he is very supportive and loyal.
Gotta be Dumbledore! He ranks up there with Yoda and Doc Brown in terms of most charismatic and intriguing “wise guide” characters.
My fav book is Prisoner of Azkaban, and while the film was decent, it missed the mark with all the blackouts. Just rewatched all the movies as I introduced the series to my little brother and I think Order of the Phoenix had the best translation on screen. Ironic as it was my least favourite book in the series.
Can Fred and George Weasley count as one character? I’ve always cheered for the class clown.
Loved Prisoner of Azkaban. Dumbledore is my favourite character.
i’m a Hagrid fan.
Ron Weasley! He’s just so akward and I love it! Haha
Snape!!!!! Oh, Snape. So excited, and so sad for the last two movies!
My fave character was one who was pretty much an extra in the films… I think he was credited as “Kid #2” or something. He had all those ominous lines like “it’s like catching smoke with your bare hands” in Order of the Phoenix… hilarious!
Looking forward to it… Should be the best one yet!
Has to be that big hairy softy… Hagrid
My favorite character will always be Luna Lovegood. I love her eccentricity and her quirkiness but also how fearless she is in horrifying situations and how much faith she has in her friends. 🙂
the first one is still my favorite – they were so cute and little .. and hermione had so much attitude – i love her in it. can’t wait for the 2 part final installment.
I loved Dobby the house elf…wish I had one!!!
From the film I like Severus Snape as he’s played by Alan Rickman, one of the greatest villian actors ever!
From the book I just like Harry Potter, how could you not?
I love Hermione…. could be cause she’s so smart! reminds me of how i was in school way back when!
Ron Weasley. He’s the best in the films.. and the cutest.
My favourite Harry Potter film so far is Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince.
My favourite character is Buckbeak…it was pretty cool to see him onscreen the first time!
My favourite character is Snape.
It has to be Ron Weasley. He’s hilarious.
OMG this is an amazing contest! Lol, anyways…I can’t pick a favorite..too hard! Love Dumbledore, love Ron and Hermione and I also love Voldemort because he is just such an amazingly created villain!
Hermione! Because she is bossy.
I like Hagrid’s character best.
Professor Snape! Alan Rickman is a MASTER at portraying villainous characters, and Snape is no exception in this series!
Ron Weasley is amazing! From book to screen, he’s a great character.
An unlikely but favourite character of mine is Harry Potter. He was forced to grow up fast, much like I had to in a way. Since he’s the most relatable, he wins.
Hermione is my favourite … must be because I identify as a teacher’s pet too 🙂
Remus Lupin! #fictionalcharactercrush
Hermione is my favorite character!
Dobbi made me cry in the book and I loved how endearing he was in the movie. That adorable little sack outfit was so tragically adorable.
I liked Ron Weasley.
I love Neville Longbottom! He is secretly brilliant!
Severus Snape (<3 Alan Rickman).. or Voldemort! gotta love them "villains" 😉
My fav is a toss up between Harry and You-Know-Who/He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named!
I still think his name’s taboo’d, at least until the end of the 7th Pt 2.
Harry Potter is my fave character
I can’t wait to see this movie! Kind of bittersweet, in a way, that this is all coming to an end! MY favorite character is by far Hermione. I think she’s a great role model!
Either Fred or George Weasley. Do I have to choose between them?
I love Luna! She definitely marches to her own drummer but is there when her friends need her!
I like the Sorting Hat the best. When is that guy going to finally get his own film? WHEN??
Fav character is for sure Hermione! I’m too much like her =\
OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! OMG! It’s finally almost here!!
I heart Sirius Black.
I would have to say my favourite character is Sirius Black. I think… it’s so hard to choose though!
from the film: luna lovegood
from the book: lupin
so hard to choose!
RON provides much-needed comic relief, and everyone’s gotta love the hand-me-down sweaters!
I just love professor dumbledor and would love tix!
Definitely excited!! Fav movie is the 3rd one, Prisoner of Azkaban. And my fav characters definitely Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks. I hope deathly hallows movie does their story justice!!
My favorite character is Bellatrix Lestrange. I love seeing Helena play these lunatic characters.
my favorite is Hermione 🙂 she is awesome in the book and its been great seeing her growing up and maturing as an actor
hermoine cause shes gorgeous 🙂
I’ve always loved Hagrid. He reminds me of me sometimes. Big and clumsy with a huge heart of gold 🙂
My fav HP book is Azkaban but my fav HP film so far is the very 1st one!
Hagrid. Even if he seems imposing, he’s just a big teddy bear.
Harry Potter is my favorite character because he is so unlike other heroes – quiet, humble and yet he always manages to conquer his enemies at the end
Luna Lovegood. In both the movie and the books shes so weird i just love it.
my favourite book is harry potter and the goblet of fire; loved the triwizard tournament 😀
Fred and George because they’re hilarious!
Luna Lovegood! She’s nuts, but so cute.
It’s all about Harry for me!
Fred and George are my favourite. Can’t really separate them!
My favourite character varies depending on the book or movie. It changes between Hermione, Luna and Snape.
In all the movies my favourite character is Snape, but that’s more to do with Alan Rickman than anything else.
My least favourite book is the Order of the Phoenix, but it’s my favourite so far of the movies.
I like Ron… not the star but always entertaining.
I favourite character is Ron Weasley because no matter how scared he gets in situations, he’s always got Harry’s back.
Neville Longbottom has a heart of gold!
Remus Lupin. Because he’s always the voice of stability and wisdom.
I love Fred and George Weasley. They are so awesome xD
So hard to choose, but I will pick Sirius Black. (tied with the house elf, Dobby)
I like Snape!
I have to choose Hermione too. It is great to have a smart female character.
Hermione seems to be the most popular character in the replies I’ve read and I wouldn’t vote any other ones either! But Luna Lovegood’s good too because I love eccentric characters 🙂
Snape! Not in any small part due to his wonderful youtube performances…
Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore! (did I get that right? haha)
My favourite character would have to be Ginny. She never gave up on Harry (:
I have to say that I love Neville Longbottom. I like how he really came to his own by the end of the series.
My favourite character is Professor Dumbledore.
Ron. Good heart, good guy.
Obviously Snape. But also Cho Chang since she’s the only Asian and I will be dressing up as her if I win these tickets!
RONNIEKINS! Because I have a soft spot for cute red-headed, extremely funny, loyal, and sometimes-can-be-a-jerk boys.
Ginny! I was always Ginny when we played Harry Potter with my sister. My sister was, off course, always Hermione!!!!
Well, actually, I rather like Harry.
All of the actors, however, do amazing work, and they all deserve kudos for being so darn good at what they do.
dumbledore’s my favourite!
There are so many great characters in the series, it’s kind of hard to choose! But I think mine might be Neville Longbottom; he grew from being a major dork to a complete bad ass!! 😀
Order of Phoenix Movie, it was really different from what I expected from reading the book, and they managed to keep most of the important scenes, unlike the movie for Goblet of Fire
My favourite character is Luna Lovegood! Too hard to pick a favourite movie, though my favourite book was the Deathly Hallows, so I`m hoping these last two parts live up to it.
Luna Lovegood! She’s so hilarious!
I have kind of turned into a Neville Longbottom fan – the lad grew up impressively.
Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore! He is the clearly the most Baus character in the whole series in terms of magical prowess. Voldemort doesn’t even have a nose
Hermione is my favorite character. She rocks!
I’d have to say Luna Lovegood… She reminds me a lot of myself!
It is very hard to choose just one but I guess it would be Dobby. Thanks
hermione granger, smart and sassy…what’s not to like!
Favourite character: Ron Weasley!
Fave character is Snape!!!!!
Hmm how to choose? My favourite character is Dumbledore.
Fave character is Sirius!
Luna Lovegood is my favourite character of the entire series. She is quirky, smart, and brave and truly a unique individual.
Did anyone mention about Dobby?
He is my favorite.
The clear winner(s) have to be Fred and George!!!
The best book and film (so far) has to be Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. That competition was awesome!
Luna Lovegood!! She knows everything about everything. Sort of.
Ack! I want these tickets!!!! I act like a giddy schoolgirl everytime I see the trailer. I am so excited.
My favourite character would easily be Cirrius (did I spell that right?) Black. I am also fascinated with Hermione.
Harry of course!
Moaning Myrtle! Because she’s so quirky!

Thanks to Alan Rickman my favorite character is Snape
Albus Dumbledore of course <3

How come nobody says Harry? Interesting.
Gotta love Neville, so adorable and charming!
Thanks for the chance to win!
Luna Lovegood! She’s so wise…
my favourite character is got to be Dumbledore cause “Dumbledore’s got style” LOL
My favorite character in the series in Ron Weasley because he adds humor to the depressing series.
Have to say,Harry Potter is my favorite.
Could be the company he keeps,I mean just look at his best friends. Brainy and Zany…haha! Harry’s da bomb!
Had a bit of a crush on Fleur DeLacour.
Remus Lupin is my favourite character. He has such a tragic life.
My favourite book AND film is The Prisoner of Azkaban.
My favourite character might be Luna or Tonks… but in truth, it has to be Sirius. In the books AND the films. 🙂
favourite character : voldemort
nuff said .
Can’t wait to watch it!
Favourite character = Sirius
Favourite movie = Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Favourite characters: Fred and George Weasley
Hermione. esp. in the first movie. She looked so cute.
Harry Potter of course!!!!
Hermoninny ska Hermione Granger!
I really like the first movie. It sets the scene for all the others. All the movies are well made.
I love Bellatrix LeStrange – because she is so utterly insane.
Dobbi! and luna lovegood is a close second.
George (and Fred) Weasley. They get into so much trouble and make the dark situations light and funny. They always made me laugh out loud when I was reading. Plus they’re really cute in the movies.
My favorites will always be Fred and George Weasley! Ah… not looking forwards to seeing what happens to them.
oooh, i hope I win so badly! My girlfriend would die with happiness if we got premiere tickets…
here’s my tweet http://twitter.com/icitea/status/2452618622279680
My daughter and I are both big fans of Harry Potter Series! It would be great to win the tickets to the premier!!
Draco Malfoy–he finally got more complicated in the last film.
Snape, hands down. I’ve always loved Alan Rickman, and that voice is just perfect for the role.
Hermione of course! (or ‘herMEEown’, as my kids used to pronounce it)
Favorite character has to be hedwig.
Fred and George because they are hilarious!
My favorite character is harry potter!!
Luna for sure!
Ron is my favorite! He’s not the most brave…but he is definitely the most entertaining. My favourite book would have to be the Order of the Phoenix
Impossible to pick, but if I have to pick one it will be Snape!
I love all the characters especially Harry Hermione and Ron but my all time favorite has to be Ron Weasley, because he’s just to funny especially when he gets all jealous over Hermione! My favorite movie so far is HArry potter and the goblet of fire..but favorite book most deffinitley Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix
Neville! Just because he’s so adorable awkward and is always dumped on by the other characters. Neville’s very understated and in my opinon should definitely be focused on more.
My favourite character has always been Hagrid. I guess I identify with him on a huge-hairy-guy level.
My favourite character is Lucius Malfoy. He is simply divine!
Hermione hands down!
My favorite character is Harry Potter himself! His inner journey has be so terribly interesting.
Can’t wait to see this movie :D!
Remis Lupin is underrated! He’s so wise and patient. Not to mention handsome and witty.
Favorite Potter character : Hermione, because she proved that being smart is awesome.
Favorite book : the 5th. Dense, dark with Harry becoming an adult, I’ve read it 5 times so far
Favorite movie: I really loved the 6th. like really loved.
Hermione. She is so smart, brave and cool! I love her.
I love all the characters! So far Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban is my favorite movie but I think the last two will change that! Can’t wait to see them both!
My favourite film of the series so far is #4: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
I’m going to have to go with Lucius Malfoy, only because I wish my hair was that nice! Fave movie is still the first one – it was so filled with wonder 🙂
Professor Snape is by far the best character…Goblet of Fire was the best, as it started to set the tone for the remainder of the serious.
Hopefully the last two films will give Alan Rickman more screen time.
I think my absolute favourite would be Ron, but besides Ron I love Luna. She’s just so comfortable with her quirkiness, and I think she’s a good example for kids who read the books that it’s okay to be yourself!
Book: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone
Movie: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Adaptation from real life: humans = Muggles
Wingardium Leviosa -> Makes on object fly
Expelliarmus -> Disarms your opponent
Accio -> Summons an object (I’m using it right now to try win these tickets)
Gotta go with Ginnie Weasley. She’s just too cute.
Hedwig! Makes me want an owl… 🙂
i love luna lovegood in the movies, great sense of style!
gotta love harry
Helena Bonham Carter as Bellatrix Lestrange. There couldn’t be a better fit out there!
I miss the original Dumbledore …
Remus Lupin! what a resilience!
Hagrid is totally my favourite.
Ron is definitely the best. Who doesn’t love a redhead.
Harry, i love Harry. 😀
Dumbledore…even though he’s not there any more…I miss him 🙁
