There’s nothing hidden in your head
The Sorting Hat can’t see,
So try me on and I will tell you
Where you ought to be.
It was a thrilling day in the lives of Harry Potter fans when Pottermore finally reintroduced the sorting hat quiz to their site in January of 2016. A whole new herd of potential witches and wizards were sorted into Hogwarts houses for the first time, and veteran Pottermore visitors retook the test to see what, if any, changes had been made to the all-important and most magical personality test of them all.
From the first installment of the series onward, readers yearned to discover just which house they would belong to if ever they were fortunate enough to step foot onto Hogwarts grounds. Are you brave and chivalrous like the Gryffindors, wise and witty like Ravenclaws, patient and loyal like the Hufflepuffs, or cunning and ambitious like the Slytherins?
We all want to know where we belong, and Pottermore presents these stars from the film series finally finding out, but how in the wizarding world did Rupert Grint avoid getting Pottermore sorted for so long?
When it comes to Evanna Lynch, her name is practically synonymous with Luna Lovegood’s (she even mentions her mental connection with the character in the video below) but does that mean that she will follow in Luna’s footsteps and be sorted into Ravenclaw house?
Evanna seems the most excited to take the quiz out of everyone in this video series, but as a huge Potter fan herself, there’s no telling how many times she’s Pottermore-sorted herself at this point.
Matthew Lewis portrayed Neville Longbottom during his time on the Potter set, a character that very nearly experienced a hatstall (when the sorting hat finds a student equally suited for multiple houses). It’d be incredibly if Matthew were also categorized in such a way, or maybe he’ll be nothing like Neville at all.
Who knows, Neville could be a mustache guy in his older years.
Funnily enough, Neville Longbottom’s house of choice was Hufflepuff, but the sorting hat thought him a better fit for the house with a history of courageous and determined wizards.
Speaking of courage, one of the most underappreciated and courageous characters in the entire series, Ginny Weasley, is quite obviously a Gryffindor through and through. “My favorite idea that David Yates and I always played on was this idea that she was a warrior,” actress Bonnie Wright said of her time playing Ginny in the films. “That was always something that I really enjoyed.”
A very Weasley-thing to say, but does that give a Bonnie free pass to the Gryffindor common room?
So put me on! Don’t be afraid!
And don’t get in a flap!
You’re in safe hands (though I have none)
For I’m a Thinking Cap!
