Natalia Tena as Nymphadora Tonks on Set of OotP
Here is our first update since creating the page for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. It turns out that somebody wandered by the set of the production and was able to snap an image of Natalia Tena playing the role of witch Nymphadora Tonks.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
'PotterFan' has alerted us to a set image for OotP that has appeared over at the Potter fansite MuggleNet.
Nymphadora Tonks made her first appearance in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and we later learn that she has a romantic interest in one of the other major, and older, characters. Tonks is a powerful member of the order as she is also a trained and gifted Auror. She is also young and more bubbly than the rest of the members. In book 5 she enjoys making the kids laugh thanks to her abilities as an Metamorphmagus; she can transform her looks at will. The book describes her as having pink hair, though the set picture shows that Warner Bros went with purple instead.
Or did she just change it to purple?
Tonks is a very important character in the upcoming films.
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix opens to theatres on July 13th, 2007.
Nymphadora Tonks has some Death Eater blood in her as well. Tonks is a cousin to Sirius Black. This means that her aunt is the crazy Bellatrix Lestrange. Lestrange is an avid follower of Lord Voldemort and believes Death Eaters families should be sacraficed for the cause. Bellatrix, like Tonks, becomes an important character in the fifth, sixth, and possibly seventh Potter installments.
