Throughout the books, we often ask why Hermione was put in Gryffindor when she’s smarter than so many Ravenclaws, and so advanced in her learning. But when we get to book seven, I think that’s where we really see Hermione’s best moments of fortitude. I think her bravest moment was after Malfoy Manor, when she took Polyjuice Potion to turn into Bellatrix. Think about what had just happened to her. She’d been tortured by this woman, to the point where Ron could hear her screams in the cellar. She’d gone through this traumatic ordeal, and she’s just a kid. Emma Watson doesn’t look like a very young girl, but Hermione was seventeen, and seventeen years of age is so young. When I was twelve, I didn’t think all that much of how terrible it must have been because to me, seventeen was all grown up. To make it worse, she not only had to deal with the horror of the situation at such an impressionable age, but she had to transform herself into the very monster that violated her. But she kept her head level and braved through the stress and fear. Hermione is truly a Gryffindor.

“Emma had sort of hinted that she was going to do that, so I wasn’t as surprised as perhaps the rest of the world was. But I think she looks fantastic! It’s a very, very cool haircut and, to be honest, the girl could look pretty with a plastic bag over her head. She’s a beautiful girl and any haircut, I’m sure, would look wonderful.” - Daniel Radcliffe about Emma Watson.
