Natalia Tena talks Half-Blood Prince, Deathly Hallows

The Los Angeles Times has a new interview with the actress who plays Tonks in the Potter films. In it, she talks about reading Deathly Hallows for the first time:

DM: Do you remember how you felt when you read the last book?

NT: Very intense. Suddenly you see my parents in the book and my mom is supposed to look exactly like Bellatrix. It was intense. And I love the fact that Tonks is pregnant. That she got married in the middle of all this chaos. It’s like she thought it would be a really good idea to get married and get pregnant and keep fighting.

I just reread the bit where Lupin tries to join Harry, Ron and Hermione on their journey and Harry gets really angry at him because Harry’s lost his parents and he says the one thing you should never do is run away from your wife and your kid. That was quite a cool thing for Harry to do. Tonks is over the moon and Lupin is freaking out. I ask you: What’s wrong with a sterile wolf cub that changes color? It’d be lovely. He’d be the coolest kid at school.
