I want you to listen to me very carefully, Harry. You’re not a bad person. You’re a very good person, who bad things have happened to. Besides, the world isn’t split into good people and Death Eaters. We’ve all got both light and dark inside us. What matters is the part we choose to act on. That’s who we really are.
[On playing a bad guy in Harry Potter’s film]: I think it’s more fun, there are a lot of goodies in the film and not a lot of baddies, so I like to be in the baddie group.
"A very, very strong woman named Tris Prior, who was not born a superhero. She was not born with innate superhuman powers. Through the evolution of the movie you get to watch her grow, and you get to watch her find her own confidence, which in turn brings her bravery. In my opinion I think, you know, you can be brave and jump off trains, but the truest form of bravery and courage is to wake up every single day and to be ourselves, and that’s something that Tris does. That is something all of us have the opportunity and choice to make each and every morning." - Shailene Woodley

WIZARDING SCHOOLS AROUND THE WORLD: SOUTH AFRICAClinging haphazardly to the jagged sides of the Drakensberg escarpment, the South African Institute for Witches and Wizards is an impressive conglomeration of architectural wonder and eccentric contraptions that keep the sprawling institute welded to the steep slopes of the mountains. Many say roaming the institute is an arduous test of one’s stamina as the primarily vertical layout of the institute relies on a plethora of stairs to navigate (luckily it has gotten better after the restriction on the indoor use of broomsticks was lifted). Over centuries, many pockets of shallow caves have been dug out and furnished by students who like to spend their free time observing the vast landscape before them from high up in the mountainside. The student population supplies much of the profits for Mava’s Zoomtastic Glasses, which is a popular accessory for observing the abundance of wildlife that roam the lands.
