did she get a haircut
does it make anyone else uncomfortable that they changed her entire race because she went out with Ron in their sixth year
isn’t that what happened???
they changed a character’s entire race because she as a character became important and relevant for a short amount of time
Umm, no. They did not change her entire race simply because she dated Ron. Actually think about it. Up until the sixth book, she was a background character that was only ever mentioned in passing, so she wasn’t given a physical description. Then in the sixth book, Lavender was finally described, as having ‘pale skin and dirty blonde hair’. Well, the first few Harry Potter movies came out before the Half-Blood Prince book did, so the casting directors did what they wanted with the character.
Another thing, the Lavender Brown from the first few movies only appeared in the first few movies. Lavender didn’t even appear in the 4th and 5th movies, because again, she was a background character, and wasn’t vital to the story. The only reason her race was changed was because a physical description was finally in the books, and it didn’t fit what the directors had, so they had to recast her. It was not because she dated Ron.
Somebody spread this shit because I refuse to have this turn into some social justice bullshit
Because it would have been the end of the world for her to not match the book, right?
I mean, Movie Harry definitely has green eyes and hair sticking up everywhere, and Movie Hermione is plain and bushyhaired.
….huh. Almost like that JUST BEING FAITHFUL TO THE BOOK argument is horseshit.
Basically, in the early books she was a background character, so it didn’t matter what race she was. Then in the sixth book, when she suddenly had a more prominent role, the producers’ minds automatically jumped to thinking of her as white, because white = default.
So not just because she went out with Ron, but yes, it does have to do with racism.
