Harry Potter Characters: In the Books Vs. In the Movies


What if the characters of "Harry Potter" looked like they did in the Books? J.K. Rowling brought us the world of Harry Potter and endowed it with an impressive number of secrets. However, some characters don’t match their descriptions from the books. Did you know that when the first book was written, Professor Snape was just over thirty? Watch this video for more surprising details!

Harry Potter 0:52
Hermione Granger 1:39
Ron Weasley 2:42
Severus Snape 3:27
Albus Dumbledore 4:22
Alastor Moody 5:18
Viktor Krum 6:10
Petunia Dursley 7:05
Minerva McGonagall 7:54
Dolores Umbridge 8:47
Rufus Scrimgeour 9:42
Bill Weasley 10:40
Narcissa Malfoy 11:37


Some of the important aspects of Harry's appearance from the books weren't reflected in the film. According to the books, “the boy who lived” has his mother’s green eyes and the wild hair that refuses to be styled.
The author chose a thick bush of chestnut hair and large front teeth (which she reduced in Goblet of Fire, though, when Malfoy’s spell ricocheted into Hermione) to be Hermione’s distinguishing features. Emma Watson had this “thick bush” only in the first movie and nice teeth from the very beginning.
In the books, Ron has a long nose and freckles that are nowhere to be found on Rupert Grint.
Severus' description in the book says he had “greasy black hair and a hooked nose.” Plus, he was supposed to be just a little older than thirty at the beginning of the first book.
None of the actors who played Dumbledore had his “very long and crooked” nose.
When "MadEye" appears in the book, he is described as a man with a badly disfigured face and tip of the nose. In the movie, however, he looks just fine apart from the famous “mad eye” and several lines on his face.
According to J.K. Rowling's vision, Viktor Krum was tall, slim, and had a hooked nose. Some of these details made it to the film, but most of them, unfortunately, didn't.
In the books, Mrs. Dursley is described as having a long neck that granted her the ability to spy on her neighbors, which she just loved to do, and blonde hair.
In the books, Minerva is described to be a tall, blackhaired and kind of severelooking woman, who, according to Harry's first impression, “is not someone to cross.”
Acoording to J.K. Rowling, Dolores Umbridge looks just as unpleasant on the outside as she truly is inside. She certainly has some resemblance to a frog thanks to her round, bulging eyes, large mouth, and pale, loose skin.
In the book, Rufus Scrimgeour resembled an old lion because of his "mane" of graying ginger hair and his style of clothing.
When we first meet him in the books, Bill Weasley is described to be tall, thin and handsome. He looks like a rock star and usually wears his hair in a ponytail.
In the books, aristocratic Narcissa Malfoy is tall and very pale. According to Harry, she looks like “she's got dung under her nose.”
