The Full Circle Family Moment In Harry Potter That Had Bonnie Wright Emotional

Although the "Harry Potter" franchise is jam-packed with plenty of heartfelt emotional moments, it's safe to say that the most poignant moments in the entire series are saved for the final movie: "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2." As the conclusion to Harry Potter's (Daniel Radcliffe) journey and his lifelong battle with the dark wizard Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes), there's a certain finality that hangs over the entire movie — making all of its emotional beats seem that much more impactful.

A few incredibly touching moments from this film include the revelation that Snape (Alan Rickman) has always been in love with Harry's mother, the deaths of fan-favorite characters like Fred Weasley (James Phelps), and Harry's meeting with the spirits of many of those who died to protect him (including his parents). Even Harry's final battle with Voldemort is incredibly emotional, as their duel is the culmination of eight movies worth of conflict.

In spite of the sheer number of tear-jerking moments this movie contains, actor Bonnie Wright, who portrayed Ginny Weasley in every film, said that the scene which made her most emotional was actually the film's epilogue — which flashes forward to show the future for Harry and his friends.

Wright was reminded of her younger self when filming the epilogue

During a Q&A for Wizarding World, actor Bonnie Wright admitted that the epilogue of "Deathly Hallows – Part 2" made her extremely emotional. The scene takes place 19 years after the Battle of Hogwarts and features adult Harry and Ginny (played by the same actors, aged up with some movie magic) bringing their children to Platform 9 3/4 alongside fellow married couple Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson). 

"It was so surreal," Wright said. "The actors playing our kids were the same age as we were when we began. It was a true full circle moment full of a lot of emotions." One can only imagine what it must've been like to shoot the final scene after so many years of living in the world of "Harry Potter," and seeing a group of children on the same set where she began her journey. While Ginny didn't become a major character until the second film, Wright briefly appeared in the first film in 2001, along with the rest of the Weasley clan, during the Platform 9 3/4 scene.

It's worth noting that the scene itself is also a full circle moment for the characters as well as the cast, as it mirrors the departure of Harry and the rest of his friends on their very first trip to Hogwarts. It's clear that this epilogue continues to hold a special place in the heart of Wright, as it brought her life-changing experience of working on the "Harry Potter" films to a tear-jerking end.
