Bonnie Wright’s “Medusa’s Ankles”, Starring Jason Isaacs, Is Now Available to Stream!

We were super excited when we found out that Bonnie Wright’s latest directorial venture would consist of a mini-Potter alumni reunion. Now, after its premiere this week, Bonnie’s short film Medusa’s Ankles, starring Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy), is available to stream on Vimeo!



Medusa’s Ankles is based on the short story of the same name by Man Booker Prize-winning author A.S. Byatt. The short film sees Issacs take on the character of self-centered salon owner Lucian, who is in denial about growing old and in search of his youth. Aging and the different ways in which it’s approached by men and women is a central theme of the film, which also focuses on the unique relationship between hairdresser and client.

Bonnie has spoken recently about how her experience on the Potter set helped inspire her love of storytelling. Adding to the Potter connections in Medusa’s Ankles, the film also stars Anna Shaffer, who played Romilda Vane in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince!  You can watch Medusa’s Ankles in its entirety here.

I was given a copy of Philosopher's Stone in 2001, and instantly, I was hooked. Since then, my passion for Potter has been equaled only by my passion for fair access to education (and watching motorsport). A spell I wish could exist in the Muggle world is the summoning charm because this Hufflepuff is not a "particularly good finder"!
