A magical marriage: 'Potter' co-stars to tie the knot

Ah, supernatural love: "Harry Potter" and "Twilight Saga" actor Jamie Campbell Bower and his "Potter" co-star Bonnie Wright have announced that they are engaged.

Bower plays Caius in the "Twilight" movies and Gellert in the last two "Potter" installments, while Wright stars as Ginny Weasley in the film adaptations of the best-selling series.

The very private couple has been together since 2009, but didn’t let the public know until February 2010. Bower confirmed the engagement recently when talking with The Daily:

“I’m engaged. I’m very happy,” said Bower. “It’s a wonderful, wonderful time.”

As for planning the wedding, we’re in the dark again. The only thing Bower said was, “We are, but I won’t say when and I won’t say where … or how.”

And we’re not really sure what that means.

But surely with the flick of a wand, these two could have the wedding together in no time.

    Very private couples are a wonderful rarity. I'd say I'd like to see more of that but I guess it would be a contradiction in terms.

    This is fantastic! I can't believe she's getting married!
    Gosh... feels just like yesterday she was super young. *Thinking back to HP1 & HP2*

    My gosh! Ginny & Caius!! LOL~ Sweet~~
    May they have a strong, happy, and peaceful marriage with each other now and forever!

    Bonnie really has blossomed into a beauitful girl. Especially considering Emma's mullet is making her seem more and more homely as time goes on.

      Emma does not have a mullet! She just made an unfortunate hair choice. Thankfully, once she realized she looked like a teenage boy, she decided to grow it out as fast as she can. Once her confidence in her appearance has returned, I'm sure she's going to go back to college.

      what a sad, stupid comment. Her hair is awesome, elegant and timely. No mullet so where are your eyes? Pixie cut just like Morena Bacarin on V. Very nice.

    OH MY GOODNESS! She is 20 years old, he is 22. This is not a fairy tale, this is a horror movie. They are both looking for publicity in their faltering so-called careers. Dating for 2 whole years! WOW, I know in the biz 2 years is like a lifetime, but come on, this is nuts.

    Guaranteed this will end before they both hit 25.

      If it was publicity, they'd be talking about each other all the time. This is the first time Jamie's mentioned her to the public in the 2 years they've been dating. Publicity this isn't.

    I seriously doubt this headline. The guy's had a bit part in two of the eight movies, and in his first appearance, he's there for...maybe ten seconds. That does not make him a "star" in any way. Bonnie has been in all eight, and is indeed a central character. Whatever else he might have done, he's not a "star" in the Harry Potter movies!

      Tom Felton looks 40 as his hairline recedes back further and further and Emma Watson is now a 12 year old boy, with both the body and hairstyle to match. I don't think looks are the Potter casts strong point. Bonnie Wright's hot though. I just hope she never shaves her head like Watson.

    I don't even remember him in the HP films. Tons of time without lines probably helped develop the relationship. She looks way older with that red lipstick, but without it she looks younger than he does.

    I don't get all the mean comments about how old she looks. You think she's going to look like a movie character in real life? I also think she's got on way too much makeup, thats why she looks older here, but come on people. Its FANTASY, remember? Movie magic? The make-up room? Ginny doesn't exist, she's played by an actress who is likely NOTHING like the character she portrayed.

      Stop picking on the teeth. I have a lot of British friends and their dental hygiene is not that bad, but the water is HARD with a lot of lime (not the fruit) in it, which does hurt their teeth.

    • grammarpolice

      if they are speaking about a couple, then the word couple is singular and then "has" is appropriate. "The couple has been together since 2009...". If they named them individually then have is the correct form. "Jamie and Bonnie have been together..."

    • jheron

      I'll have to disagree. I think he was sorely miscast as Arthur. I hope him the best with his career, but I have not enjoyed Camelot that much compared with most other period pieces partially because of the writing and partially because of the casting. It also lacks an epic feel to it. These are the most powerful people in England and it feels like only a hand full of people are in this world. Maybe it has gotten better from episode 2...I certainly hope so.

      why oh why would anyone who has not read these lovely books presume to make assumptions about who the characters end up with. It was obvious for YEARS who she was going to match up, I seem to remember her using the phrase "anvil sized hints" The movie bluured that line a little.... but still, it is pretty obvious. If you have not read the books I suggest you do so you are truly missing out!!
