The actress, who portrayed Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter franchise, recently revealed that she was frustrated that her character didn’t have as large of a role in the films as she did in the books by J.K. Rowling.

“There was just no room for much change in those scripts,” Wright shared on the Aug. 29 episode of the Inside of You with Michael Rosenbaum podcast. “There were a million executives going through them all.”

The 32-year-old, who first starred in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone at 9 years old, went on to explain how she struggled with an internal dialogue over how her character portrayal would come across to viewers.

“I think what I maybe took—which I don’t take so much to heart now—is I kind of felt that maybe my anxiety was about like, ‘Oh, I’m going to be seen as badly portraying this character,’ rather than later realizing that I wasn’t really given the opportunity to do that,” Wright continued. “So it wasn’t really my ‘fault,’ exactly.” 

But the fans of Hogwarts’ finest had her back, despite Wright feeling the filmmakers could have fit in a larger role for Gilly, who she played in all eight films, from 2001 to 2011.

“And when fans do share that disappointment, they do it in a way where they’re like, ‘We know it wasn’t you. We just wanted more of you.’ And that’s the same with every character,” she added. “If only they could’ve been five-hour-long movies, but it would’ve taken probably two years to film each one or something.”

Wright also noticed that a lot was changed from the original book series and “a lot of the scenes of every character were chopped down from the book to the film.
