>• Meet three young supporting stars who step into key roles in the halls of Hogwarts

MOST GROWN UP BONNIE WRIGHT (GINNY WEASLEY) Just 9 when she was cast as Ron’s little sister, London-born Wright, 18, captures Harry’s heart in the new movie—and has her first onscreen kiss with Daniel Radcliffe. “I made sure I brushed my teeth immediately before,” she says. “Dan is a perfect kisser. I can’t complain!”

BADDEST BULLY TOM FELTON (DRACO MALFOY) “I get boos from kids around the world, but I take it as a compliment,” says Felton, 21, who’s grown from a troublemaker to a serious villain. Tougher is staying platinum blond: he gets his brown roots colored every 10 days. “I’ve become oddly attached to it,” he says of the look.

SCARIEST NEWCOMER HERO FIENNES-TIFFIN (TOM RIDDLE) The 11-year-old nephew of actor Ralph Fiennes stars as a haunting younger version of Fiennes’ Voldemort. “He had the uncanny ability to still the room,” says director David Yates. “Hero’s very charming, but when he read the lines, we all went, ‘Wow, he’s scary!'”
