Bonnie Francesca Wright is an English actress, director, and activist. She is best known for her role as Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter film series. Born in London, Wright made her professional debut in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (2001), portraying the role for ten years until the final film, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 (2011). Following the series, Wright appeared in a string of independent films, including Before I Sleep, The Sea (2013), and After the Dark (2014); the films received mixed reviews, while critics for the latter two argued that Wright remained underused in supporting roles. She made her stage debut as the lead in Peter Ustinov's The Moment of Truth at the Southwark Playhouse in the same year, for which she received praise. Wright graduated University of the Arts London in 2012 with a bachelor's degree in filmmaking. She subsequently founded her own production company, BonBonLumiere and began to produce short films. Her first directorial project was coming-of-age drama Separate We Come, Separate We Go (2012), starring David Thewlis, which was released at the Cannes Film Festival to critical acclaim. She directed Know Thyself (2016), starring Christian Coulson and Sextant (2016), both of which feature themes surrounding landscape and emotion. Wright's three-part series, Phone Calls (2017) premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. Wright released Medusa's Ankles (2018) starring Kerry Fox and Jason Isaacs, based on A. S. Byatt's The Matisse Stories. She has also directed music videos for artists Sophie Lowe, Pete Yorn, and Scarlett Johansson. Wright has gained recognition for her environmental activism; she is an ambassador for charities Greenpeace and Lumos.
