Palm Dog Gets Down With Bonnie Wright: Ginny Weasley from The Potter films
So under the rain clouds Cannes hots up. Not least the contenders for Palm Dog. As is now customary a luminary from the world of cinema is a Palm Dog Pinup. This year we were graced with the delightful charm of Bonnie Wright who plays Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter films. In keeping with the red locks of Tilda Swinton we had the most subtle of redheads to show off the red collar – created by Creature Comforts from Norfolk via Shoreditch.
The fact that the trophy collar this year comes from Norfolk is most appropriate given its proximity to the Queen’s country seat, Sandringham. Not least because Her Majesty boards the train to reach her Norfolk retreat from Kings Cross – the station which features in the Potter books. There is a wonderful synergy in the air this year!
From Italian Grazia:
The first was close to surreal: on the dock of the Hotel Majestic Barrière departed speedboats carrying giant to the yacht that Mohammed Al Turki's day at sea, sponsored by Ciroc Vodka. Have you ever been to a party on a catamaran Arab billionaire? Well, me neither before yesterday. I think I saw more than thousand attached to the necks and ears of the participants than they'll never see in my life. Anyway. There were also Michelle Rodriguez to play some music, supermodel Nemcova czech stone to dazzle everyone with her golden hair and the young Bonnie Wright (better known as Ginny Weasley, Harry Potter's girlfriend). Champagne and oysters for everyone, and frequent raids by boat several crashers that aimed to infiltrate (apparently around there too with her Roberto Cavalli, the yacht in tow). For the record: the cocktails were the favorite present Ciroc Rocks and Apple Ciroctini.
Cannes 2012: Harry Potter's Ginny Weasley directs budget film
Bonnie Wright, Harry Potter's Ginny Weasley, makes her directorial debut with Separate We Come, Separate We Go, part financed by a fish and chip shop.
In her role as Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter films, Bonnie Wright was a star of Hollywood’s highest-grossing franchise. Her latest cinematic outing is at the opposite end of the scale. Wright has made her own short film, shown here in Cannes, on a budget of just £5,000. Not only that, but part of the funding was provided by a fish and chip shop in Dungeness. The film, Separate We Come, Separate We Go, is Wright’s directorial debut and the first offering from her fledgling production company, Bon Bon Lumiere. Wright, 21, made the film as a graduate project for her degree at the London College of Communication. The rules state that films can be funded by voluntary donations only, which is where the chip shop came in
Dungeness and Romney Marsh in Kent were the locations, and local businesses were among those invited to pledge money for the project. A donation of £25 was rewarded with a mention in the credits, £50 earned a mention and a DVD of the film, while anyone giving £1,000 also received a poster, screening invitation and opportunity to have a meal with the crew. Unlike most other graduates on her course, Wright was able to cast a well-known actor. She called on her Harry Potter co-star, David Thewlis, to appear in the film as a lonely widower who strikes up a sweet friendship with a 10-year-old girl called Thea. Young actress Emily Dunham plays Thea, who lives in a bleak town with her troubled mother and sets off for the coast one day. Wright explained:
“It’s a journey of enlightenment – a realisation that her life doesn’t end at the end of her street, it’s a whole open world.” Explaining why she chose Dungeness and Romney Marsh as her location, Wright said: “It’s a very unique area and an amazing stretch of land. “Romney Marsh is an area where I spent a lot of time when I was a child. Growing up in a city such as London, it’s so confined sometimes that as a child there is no feeling of a horizon, there’s nothing beyond what you know. “So for me I was so lucky to have that experience of spending a lot of time in open spaces such as Romney Marsh that I was able to gain that feeling of beyond. As a young child I was obsessed with horizons.”
Separate We Come, Separate We Go is showing in the Short Film Corner at Cannes. Wright has two acting roles in the pipeline: a British period drama, In Want of a Wife, and a US independent film, Shakespeare’s Daughter. She told Screen magazine that she is moving on from the wizarding franchise that made her name.
“All of us had our 10 years on Harry Potter, it was an incredible experience, but I’m now very excited about the next chapter,” she said
