did she get a haircut
does it make anyone else uncomfortable that they changed her entire race because she went out with Ron in their sixth year
isn’t that what happened???
they changed a character’s entire race because she as a character became important and relevant for a short amount of time
Umm, no. They did not change her entire race simply because she dated Ron. Actually think about it. Up until the sixth book, she was a background character that was only ever mentioned in passing, so she wasn’t given a physical description. Then in the sixth book, Lavender was finally described, as having ‘pale skin and dirty blonde hair’. Well, the first few Harry Potter movies came out before the Half-Blood Prince book did, so the casting directors did what they wanted with the character.
Another thing, the Lavender Brown from the first few movies only appeared in the first few movies. Lavender didn’t even appear in the 4th and 5th movies, because again, she was a background character, and wasn’t vital to the story. The only reason her race was changed was because a physical description was finally in the books, and it didn’t fit what the directors had, so they had to recast her. It was not because she dated Ron.
Somebody spread this shit because I refuse to have this turn into some social justice bullshit
she was never described as having pale skin and dirty blonde hair
that literally never happened and this person is lying
so yeah “social justice bullshit” is perfectly acceptable here
Unless someone provides a direct quote and page number please do not believe them when they say stuff like this. People will say stuff to stop people airing legit complaints.
I checked. I can’t find a single physical description of Lavender in any of the books. She doesn’t appear to have been described in Pottermore, either, if the Pottermore Wiki is accurate.
I think someone pointed out that it’s already dodgy that Harry’s first failed attempt at a relationship was with a POC, before he settles with a nice white girl. Having Ron do that too would make it highly skeevy, particularly since unlike Cho, Lavender’s crush is played for laughs and she isn’t that well fleshed out as a character.
