Day 28 Potter Challenge.

So the most underrated character in my opinion is Lupin. He is absolutely fantastic in the books, but the films really do weaken his role, his strength and relationship he has with Harry. You don’t really learn.anything about Lupin in the films, BUT the books… Wow that’s a whole other blog post. He is absolutely incredible in the books. I really wished he was portrayed better, this has nothing to do with the actor because I feel David Thewlis plays the parts amazingly, it’s the lack of influence he has within the films. Before I had even read the books Lupin was my least favourite character, after reading the book he is my favourite. I absolutely adore him. ❤

  1. The cliché answer to this one would be Neville Longbottom, and it’s a completely justified answer. But, in the name of flying in the face of cliché, I’m going to say Narcissa Malfoy. She mostly serves as a secondary character, in spite of being related to three of the story’s primary villains: Lucius and Draco, of course, plus Bellatrix Lestrange. She is also a cousin of Sirius Black, though that doesn’t get highlighted as much as the fact that Bellatrix is Sirius’s cousin.

    I say she’s underrated due to her role in the last two books of the series. In the Half-Blood Prince, she gets Snape to make the unbreakable vow to protect Draco. This seals Dumbledore’s fate, for one, and provides the final push that immerses Snape behind Death Eater lines as a double agent. Then, in the Deathly Hallows, she flat-out lies to Voldemort about Harry being alive. Had she been honest, no doubt Voldemort would have ensured that Harry be killed on the spot, and the story would have turned out a bit differently.

    Granted, both these acts were done in the name of protecting her family, and not necessarily for the greater good. It’s been pointed out, though, that this is the one saving grace of the Malfoy family, that they do love each other. I think that fits perfectly into the theme of love being more powerful than evil.
