In the diverse multitude of magical characters populating the Harry Potter books, Ron and Hermione stand out for their importance in the plot and for their complex characters. Despite their antithetical personalities, the witch and wizard will end up falling in love and building a life together. Here are some curiosities about this “magical” couple.
Ron and Hermione’s love-story: a change of mind?
J.K. Rowling recently confessed that she had imagined someone else as Hermione’s future partner. For a while, apparently, the writer thought of Harry as the perfect match for the beautiful young witch.
The third film shows the beginning of Ron and Hermione’s romantic connection
The third film of the series, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, is one of those rare cases in which a movie adaptation manages to predict what will happen in the following novels of the series, even before they are published. Director Alfonso Cuaron felt that Ron and Hermione could fall in love, and decided to reveal this intuition through specific scenes and gestures.
Rumours of a fling between Hermione and Victor Krum
While Ron had other love interests throughout the saga, Hermione remained mostly single, perhaps because she had little interest in other boys. The only exception is Victor Krum, with whom the young witch had a fling during the Quidditch World Cup.
Ron would die for Hermione
In one of the multiple alternate realities shown in the play Harry Potter And The Cursed Child, Ron literally gives his life to save Hermione: in this plot line, while Voldemort is in power and the dementors are attacking wizards, Ron, acting as a shield, sacrifices himself to save Hermione.
What Ron and Hermione’s children tell us
With very different backgrounds in terms of social class and magical skills, Ron and Hermione combine their qualities when they start their own family. The couple has two children, Rose and Hugo, who take the double surname Granger-Weasley. It’s almost as if Hermione wanted to underline the double nature of her family.
