EXCLUSIVE: Bonnie Wright talks “The Highway is for Gamblers”, “Potter” memories!

Recently we learned that Potter alumna Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) had landed a new role in indie film The Highway is for Gamblers. In an exclusive interview with MuggleNet, Bonnie Wright discusses this amazing new project, as well as her time in film school, and of course, Harry Potter.

The Highway is for Gamblers is the story of Heidi and Jane, played by Bonnie and Nikki Reed, respectively. From the official website:

Heidi and Jane are best friends living in a sprawling desert community. After a series of relationship problems mars their friendship, Jane goes missing at a rodeo. Heidi begins a search across the desert for her friend, digging up secrets and encountering the violence of life on the road, crossing paths along the way with a series of unusual men in her hope for an honest connection in a dishonest world. Heidi is constantly searching for people who don’t want to be found. She is open and trusting, and in the universe the film is set, these things karmically add up and play against her.

The Highway is for Gamblers is currently in Kickstarter stage, and you can take part in this amazing project right here. Pledges start as low as $1!

We wouldn’t be MuggleNet if we didn’t ask Bonnie at least a few Harry Potter questions. So this time we decided to source them from you, the fans! We asked multiple questions thanks to a few Twitter users. To find out if your question was asked, give a listen to our full interview with Bonnie.

You can also watch a teaser for the film over on the official website.

I am a 30-something Ravenclaw/Slytherin from Massachusetts. I've been lucky in life and can attribute a lot of that to Harry Potter. Without it, I wouldn't have at least 80% of the things that I do today, including my job & closest friends. I truly despise Sirius Black.
