Considering that I am a Gryffindor through and through you may assume I’d chose a nasty Slytherin as my least favourite female, maybe Bellatrix Lestrange who single handedly killed off so many of our beloved characters.. But no I actually love the crazy character who is played by the beautiful and amazing Helena Bonham Carter.
My least favourite, female, character is Aunt Petunia, I despised her right from the very first words which passed her pursed lips on her po face. Aunt Petunia is one of the most stuck up, jealous, patronising, arrogant, snotty, conceited, ostentatious bitches in all of the Harry Potter books (and it was a close call between her and Dolorus Umbridge).
I think every single ounce of nastiness that comes from her, and there is a whole load of nastiness, stems from jealousy of her sister Lily who is of course Harry’s mum. She spoils her son Dudley to the point of him being a horrible bully and a spoilt brat, its no secret in the books that she felt her parents loved her sister more than her and maybe she tries to compensate that by being an overbearing mother to Dudley who, in my opinion, needs a good smack, and thats coming from someone who is anti smacking of children haha.
Fiona Shaw, who plays Petunia, plays her true to the books. The on screen character is exactly how I pictured her through out the books. I’m sure Fiona is lovely in real life but I think if I ever met her in real life I’d have a hard job disassociating her from her character and would be tempted to giver her a piece of my mind (or to throw something at her).
