10 Points to Gryffindor! Hermione Granger Voted Fan-Favorite Character!

We reported earlier this month that Bloomsbury and National Book Tokens had teamed up to create a poll that would allow fans to vote for their favorite character in the series. Voting has now closed, the numbers are in, and everyone’s favorite frizzy-haired hero took the top spot!

Hermione Jean Granger came in with the most votes, taking 15% of over 10,000 votes cast!

Severus Snape took second place, with Luna Lovegood following in third. There were some surprising contenders, such as Bellatrix Lestrange, who took the #15 spot, and Lord Voldemort himself, who nabbed #18.

Voters were allowed to select a character from a pre-chosen list, or if their favorite character wasn’t listed, there was an option to write in their own. Some examples of characters that were written in are Pomona Sprout, Moaning Myrtle, and even Neville’s toad, Trevor! Molly Weasley accrued the most write-in votes.

The characters that took the top 20 spots are as follows:

  1.  Hermione Granger
  2.  Severus Snape
  3. Luna Lovegood
  4. Sirius Black
  5. Dobby
  6. Harry Potter
  7. Ron Weasley
  8. Albus Dumbledore
  9. Remus Lupin
  10. Minerva McGonagall
  11. Neville Longbottom
  12. Rubeus Hagrid
  13. Draco Malfoy
  14. Ginny Weasley
  15. Bellatrix Lestrange
  16. Nymphadora Tonks
  17. Fred Weasley
  18. Lord Voldemort
  19. George Weasley
  20. Gilderoy Lockhart

    Surprised that neither Harry nor Ron are in the top five. Also Ginny is pretty far down the list considering her rather large role in the books. No idea Tonks was so popular, and also Gilderoy Lockhart, haha. Also Dobby in fifth place? People, please!
