I’d be very very excited to see Daniel Radcliffe. He’s a fantastic actor, plus he’s Harry Potter for crying out loud!

I would be most excited to see Matt Lewis. Neville has grown so much throughout the Harry Potter series, and I’m really excited to see how Matt takes on the role of hero in the last movie.

I’d love to see Emma Thompson. She’s a great Trelawney!

I would absolutely love to see Bonnie Wright. Ginny is my favorite character in the series. Bonnie is so pretty and makes a great counterpart to Daniel.

I would really really really love to meet Daniel Radcliffe. He has literally changed my life. By bringing the character of Harry Potter to life, he’s continued my obsession with the books to an almost overwhelming level. I have been reading Harry Potter since the 3rd grade, almost 12 years ago. I remember when the very first movie came out, and since then, I’ve never been the same. I would be so surreal to meet him; it would be like meeting a figment of my imagination.

I’m ecstatic to see Emma Watson. She’s really come a long way, and she’s genius. She’s a role model to girls around the world, and it’s been amazing to see her grow as a person and an icon. It’ll be great to see what she shows up in for this final red carpet. But really, I’m definitely excited to see everyone and be a part of the end of one chapter, and inevitably the beginning of a new. :)

I was reading the Drawing and Notification of winners section and it says Wednesday July 2nd, which is strange cause July second was Saturday, so the winners were either chosen yesterday or are going to be chosen on Wednesday, haha.

I’d be most excited to meet Emma Watson because I think she played Hermione really well and Hermione was probably my favorite character.

Tom Felton. He’s been one of my favorite actors for half my life and I’ve grown while watching him on television and movies. I think he’s an awesome actor and a seemingly intelligent person, a true role model for Harry Potter fans everywhere. I don’t think he’s given enough credit and would love nothing more than to meet him!

The facebook giveaway hasn’t posted anything either, so I think it may just be taking everyone a bit of time. :)

Sounds like a dream right? To have the opportunity to meet such wonderful people, I have one person in particular that I would be absolutely ecstatic to see! Alan Rickman, I have always had a crush on him, ever since I was young. Can one blame me though? He is indeed the most handsome man I have ever seen….and I’m not just saying that. He’s such a great actor, not only in the Harry Potter series, but in all of his films.
Well goodbye…..
