In The Bustle Booth With Bonnie Wright


When celebrities come into Bustle HQ in New York, whether it's for a photoshoot, videoshoot, or a Facebook Live, we want to give them the chance to leave their mark. Literally. So we hand them a pen, a piece of paper, a few questions, and ask them to get creative. The rest is up to them. This time, actress-turned-director Bonnie Wright is leaving her mark in the Bustle Booth.

She might be most recognizable to you from the Harry Potter franchise, but Bonnie Wright has tried on all manner of hats since leaving her role as Ginny Weasley in the wizarding franchise. She's dabbled in writing, modeling, producing, and has lately set her sights on directing; her most recent project Phone Calls premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival last month. Phone Calls, which she also co-created alongside Martin Cohn, is a short anthology series exploring communication and how the nature of our conversations is altered when we aren't face-to-face.

It's an exciting, thought-provoking project to dive into, and we're thrilled to have gotten the chance to talk to Wright about it, as well as get the inside scoop on her day-to-day life. She spills on her celebrity idol — do I sense a fellow Big Little Lies fan? — her surfing aspirations, her go-to alternative milk choice for her lattes, and, of course, her very handy superpower. (Spoiler alert: it's not just having enough nerve.)
