Bellatrix: (mid 40s) long shiny thick black hair, strong jaw, dark hooded eyes, thin lips, gaunt from long term imprisonment, still has vestiges of old beauty

Okay folks, let’s talk about the age-old debate of books vs. movies. We all know that books usually come out on top, right? And one of the reasons for this is that films don’t always do a great job of capturing the same images and emotions as the book. Like, have you ever read a book and formed a mental picture of a character or place, only to be totally disappointed by how it looked in the movie? Yeah, us too.

Bill Weasley: (mid 20s) red hair, handsome, thin, blue eyes

So, imagine this – what if there was a way to see how characters would look if they were true to their book descriptions? Well, that’s exactly what one Vietnamese woman did. Her name is MsBananaAnna (we know, we love it too), and she used artificial intelligence to create images of Harry Potter characters as they were described in the books.

Cedric Diggory: very handsome chiseled features, dark hair and grey eyes

Now, MsBananaAnna is a self-proclaimed nerd living in Melbourne. She’s been a huge Potterhead since she was a little kid, and she remembers waiting in line at midnight for every book release. When she saw the movies, she thought Emma Watson was too gorgeous to be Hermione (we mean, we totally get it), so she decided to create her own version of the character. People loved it so much that she kept going, and created more characters.

Charlie: (mid 20s) short and stocky, blue eyes, broad good-natured face, lotssss of freckles, bright red hair

Some of her renditions look similar to the movie versions, while others look completely different. But for MsBananaAnna, the one that came out the best was Sirius. She said he looked exactly how she imagined him – dark and regally handsome. We gotta admit, we agree.

Cho Chang: long shiny hair, freckled nose, pretty
