I know; I know. Her name is … wait, let me look it up again quick—her name is Bonnie Wright, but I’m telling you right now—no matter how many times I write about this cute little doll of a girl, I’m always, always, *always* going to refer to her as Ginny Weasley, because no role she could ever take on again in life could ever be as epic as the one she took in playing the sassy, street-smart, soft-hearted Ginny Weasley in the Harry Potter movies. OK? Let’s just deal.
Remember how I told you guys a few days ago that girlfriend was engaged to Jamie Campbell Bower, or ‘Caius’ from the Twilight movies? Because she was, and after being so in love and planning their wedding down to the last detail, the whole shebang was called off, and sources close to the couple claimed that the ‘ship was off, but that they were still “friends.”
And then these photos of Jamie Campbell Bower and his new costar, Lily Collins, hit the Internets, and all hell breaks loose. These two are costars on the set of an upcoming movie based on the ‘Mortal Instruments’ series, of which I know nothing about (except for what I briefly read on Wiki) and that which I probably won’t be interested in ’til 2022, because that’s generally how I (unintentionally) roll. The two play two of the film’s main characters, and have been spending—ahem—an exorbitant amount of time together, off set, according to sources.
I’ll tell you, guys, though. This Lily Collins chick? She gets around, huh? And Jamie Campbell Bower? Well. He’s got a thing for doing movies that appeal to a generally-teen audience. Harry Potter? Twilight? This Mortal Instruments business? What’s next, a play for Hunger Games stuff? Because come on.

Well hell. I didn’t even know girlfriend (who actually goes by, you know, her real name, which is Bonnie Wright) was engaged. To another Harry Potter actor, nonetheless. Bonnie and Jamie Campbell Bower (who played the young Grindelwald in the last two films) were reported to be engaged almost an entire year ago.
From Ace Showbiz:
Slightly more than a year after announcing that they were engaged, Bonnie Wright and Jamie Campbell Bower said they have split and the engagement is off. The couple met on the set of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” in 2010 and he proposed to her after only six months of dating.
Bower has confirmed the separation to Daily Mail, saying he’s “heartbroken” over the split. She has reportedly left the London townhouse they were sharing. “They have split but it is amicable,” a source said.
Interesting tidbit, Bower also plays ‘Caius’ in the Twilight franchise. Which completely surprises me because I thought the actor who portrayed Caius was approximately a hundred years old or something.
What went wrong, though? I don’t know. Maybe it’s the weird way that Bonnie’s mouth moves when she talks and maybe it wasn’t. I’m not going to go ahead and say that’s the reason, because it could have been something else just as equally valid—like how Jamie Campbell Bower looks like a prepubescent little girl, and that made Bonnie feel all shades of weird.
Sorry to hear the news, guys! Better luck next time!
