London and Scott as Janis and Damian
"That one there, that’s Jasmine Young. She is one of the dumbest girls you will ever meet. Scott sat next to her in group therapy last week,"
"She asked me what ‘cunt’ meant,"
"That little one, that’s Layla Mansfield,"
"She’s totally rich because her dad invented Toaster Strudels or something,"
"Lilith Lotus knows everybody’s business, she knows everything about everyone,"
"That’s why her hair’s so big, it’s full of secrets,"
"And evil takes a human form in Evangeline Stone. Don’t be fooled, because she may seem like your typical selfish, back-stabbing Jesus-faced ho-bag, but in reality she’s so much more than that."

The Perks of Being A Wallflower AU:
“It’s much easier to not know things sometimes. Things change and friends leave. And life doesn’t stop for anybody. I wanted to laugh. Or maybe get mad. Or maybe shrug at how strange everybody was, especially me. I think the idea is that every person has to live for his or her own life and than make the choice to share it with other people. You can’t just sit there and put everybody’s lives ahead of yours and think that counts as love. You just can’t. You have to do things. I’m going to do what I want to do. I’m going to be who I really am. And I’m going to figure out what that is. And we could all sit around and wonder and feel bad about each other and blame a lot of people for what they did or didn’t do or what they didn’t know. I don’t know. I guess there could always be someone to blame. It’s just different. Maybe it’s good to put things in perspective, but sometimes, I think that the only perspective is to really be there. Because it’s okay to feel things. I was really there. And that was enough to make me feel infinite. I feel infinite.”
Colton Harvard as Charlie
Bailey Marwick as Sam
Derrick Pascal as Patrick
Derrick Pascal as Harry Potter
"I see Harry as someone who is struggling to do the right thing, who is not without faults, who acts impetuously […] but who is ultimately a very loyal, and a very very courageous person […] He is ultimately human, struggling to do the right thing, which I think is admirable."
With a prominent scar on his brow, a mark which represents the violent trauma of his past, Harry Potter is an extremely brave, loyal, and selfless person who possesses tremendous strength of character. Also marked with a “weakness for heroics”, he will go to great lengths and take great risks in order to help others, particularly his loved ones. Despite the traits he possesses which would have made him a fair fit for Slytherin, Dumbledore often reminds him that it is not his potential for evil that defines him, but rather his conscious choices.
Harry puts an unmeasurable amount of trust in his friends. Considering his experience with betrayal (i.e. Peter Pettigrew) and his scarring past, Harry’s persistence to believe the best in people proves his ability to love so unequivocally. The closeness he feels for many of them, however, is great enough for him to behave violently should any of them get harmed.
Harry is also incredibly stubborn, hot-tempered and impulsive. He is prone to moodiness, likely due to emotional stress, and he has a tendency to become rather obsessive, for instance when he became intensely preoccupied with Malfoy in sixth year. His greatest strength is his ability to feel love, despite having a miserable childhood built on neglect and hate. He even claimed that he felt sorry for Voldemort because of his inability to feel or understand love.
Layla Mansfield as a Howler
"You’d better open it, Ron. It’ll be worse if you don’t. My gran sent me one once, and I ignored it and - it was horrible."
A Howler is a magical letter in a red envelope which enchants the written message into the writer’s voice, usually at a very high volume. The physical temperature of the Howler begins to rapidly increase upon delivery, and it will explode if ignored for too long. This ensures that the recipient will pay accurate and necessary attention to the Howler, even though he or she knows that what they will find will likely be obnoxious, brutally honest and unpleasantly loud. Once the message has been received, the envelope bursts into flames, leaving only ashes.
The purpose of the Howler is to express anger or great displeasure in a manner which standard writing cannot adequately convey. Though their manner and execution can be embarrassing and unpleasant, their source is often the hand of loved ones or people of importance. Though the situation at hand would have been better avoided, receiving a Howler and hearing its roar, is proof that someone out there cares about what you’re doing and when. Maybe it’s not ideal, but it’s better than no one being bothered, at all.

Allison French as Madam Rosmerta
"Ron, what are you looking at?"
"…Well, I expect nothing’s in the back getting more firewhisky."
Rosmerta is an attractive and desirable, and described as “a curvy sort of woman with a pretty face”. Several Hogwart’s pupils, including Ron Wesley, have fancied her.
In the books, Rosmerta is blunt, opinionated, and somewhat crass. She works hard but her bar-maid attitude keeps her rough around the edges and unafraid to tell someone off when necessary.

Carson Leeds as Neville Longbottom
“And finally, it takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to your enemies, but a great deal more to stand up to your friends.”
When he was younger, Neville was clumsy, forgetful, shy, and many considered him ill-suited for Gryffindor house. However, Neville proved on many occasions to have bravery beneath his insecurity, standing up to his friends in first year and later becoming one of the D.A.’s most courageous members.
Part of Neville’s problem was his very poor self-esteem, as he referred to himself as a “nobody”. But with the support of his friends, to whom he was very loyal, and the motivation of knowing his parents’ torturers were on the loose, Neville became braver, more self-assured, and dedicated to the fight against the Dark Lord. The boy found courage where no one thought it existed, saving the lives of many and proving that what they say is true: the meek shall indeed inherit.

Lilith Lotus as Pansy Parkinson
“Potter, have you split up with your girlfriend? Why was she so upset at breakfast?”
Pansy Parkinson always had gall, probably too much for her own good, but you had to hand it to her for her unwillingness to let others bring her down. She was often snide and callous, and though her actions illustrated a level of immaturity, they were always fueled by her fierce loyalty to her house, her family and friends, and to the world that she knew and believed to be right.
In fictions she is often portrayed as beautiful, but challenging to get along with. She had a flair for dramatics and a tendency to enjoy gossip, and her frequent attempts to cut others down were always telling of the falseness of her egotism, and the insecurities that lingered inside.

Thomas Porter as Rubeus Hagrid
"Hagrid was only a boy, but he cared for me, hidden in a cupboard in the castle, feeding me scraps from the table…"
In Hagrid’s third year at Howarts, he was expelled and his wand snapped. However he was trained as groundskeeper and allowed to live on school grounds at the request of Albus Dumbledore.
Hagrid is an incredibly warm, kind-hearted man but one of his greatest traits remains his courage. Despite his surprisingly delicate and sensitive personality, he is very loyal and compassionate, and therefor ready to defend his friends or fight for them if necessary.
Esmeralda Whitlock as Hermione Granger
“But why’s she got to go to the library?”
”Because that’s what Hermione does. When in doubt, go to the library.”
Hermione’s most prominent features include her prodigious intellect and cleverness. She is levelheaded, book-smart and very good with logic. Though often bossy, she is unfailingly dutiful and loyal to her friends. Despite Hermione’s know-it-all attitude, according to Rowling she has “quite a lot of vulnerability in her personality,” as well as a “sense of insecurity underneath.” She feels “utterly inadequate…and to compensate, she tries to be the best at everything at school, projecting a false confidence that can irritate people.”
Hermione has an extremely compassionate side to her personality and is quick to help others, especially those who are defenceless. She has learned to ignore what bullies such say to her, often preventing her friends from retaliating and instead thinking of some way to outsmart him.
Oz O’neil as Garrick Ollivander
"The wand chooses the wizard, remember…. I think we must expect great things from you, Mr. Potter…. After all, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named did great things— terrible, yes, but great."
Ollivander is an intelligent man, with an excellent memory when it comes to his work; he remembers the details of every wand he ever sold. He seems to become happier the more difficult the challenge to find exactly the right wand for a difficult customer is.
Ollivander has a professorial enthusiasm for wandlore and is immensely learned in it. A less savoury aspect of his personality is that his fascination with wandlore sometimes eclipses his sense of right and wrong; he is so fascinated with what a powerful wizard can do when matched with the right wand that he becomes detached from the good or evil nature of their actions.
