HARRY POTTER’S Geneva Weasley, known as ‘Ginny’ to her family and friends is the youngest of seven Weasley children and the first girl for several generations. In the films, her ‘crush’ on Harry develops further and in the eight instalment of the Potter phenomenon, the play HARRY POTTER AND THE CURSED CHILD, PARTS ONE AND TWO, which is currently taking the West End by storm, she is married to Harry, who is now a Ministry of Magic employee.
English actress Poppy Miller plays the adult Ginny Potter. Her extensive stage and screen roles include DC Carol Browning in the British detective series THE COMMANDER, several parts in the Almeida Theatre’s production of THE LAST DAYS OF JUDAS ISCARIOT, including Mary Magdalene and both Viola and her twin brother Sebastian in TWELTH NIGHT at the Tricycle in 2008.
I met Poppy at the stage door of London’s Palace Theatre after the World Premiere gala matinee performance of PART ONE last Saturday. My rendering reputation or as some might say, sketch stalking had obviously gone before me. She greeted me with “Ah, the drawing man” with a smile and signed this Ginny montage.
