Why Harry Potter Had Such an Impact According to Natalia Tena



It has been 26 years since J.K. Rowling published the first book of the Harry Potter series, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, but the story still remains as relevant as ever. The franchise has expanded to include seven books, eight movies, theme parks, merchandising, and spinoffs in various formats. Despite the passing of the years, the boy who lived reached the top and never went down again.

With a new franchise-related project in the works, which will retell the main story in a series format for Max, many people are wondering how the Harry Potter franchise still manages to have such an impact and attract fans from around the world every day.

Natalia Tena, who played Nymphadora Tonks in the film adaptation of Rowling’s books, believes she has the answer. In an interview with Coming Soon, Tena stated, “I think the world is what everyone’s obsessed with, really. Harry Potter works so well because, at its core, it’s about a kid who is suffering child abuse and finds his family not in family, but in friends. I think that’s such an amazing message and, obviously, it’s coupled with magic, which we all want to be real, all of us. And it’s coupled with really trying to process death as well, which is why I think it’s such a successful thing. Because it does all those things for children, but for adults as well.”

The Harry Potter saga not only marked a before and after in pop culture, but it also changed the lives of a large part of the actors and actresses who were part of the film adaptation. Although some of the cast members were already established celebrities, such as Maggie Smith and Ralph Fiennes, it was also the perfect opportunity for new faces in the acting world to shine and boost their careers.

The clearest examples are Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, and Rupert Grint, who played Harry, Hermione, and Ron. For Tena, it was also a turning point in her career. However, it was hard for her to realize how truly life-changing it would be to be a part of the franchise when she first joined the project. She stated, “It’s only when I got to the studio and I saw the scope of how big it was. And actually, when I went to the first premiere, that is when I was like … when I did the sixth film when I was already in it, that’s when I was like, ‘Oh God.’ I kind of felt it because before that, I was like, ‘Isn’t it some weird kids film? I don’t really get it.’ And then suddenly, I could visually see the impact of the people and the paparazzi and the fans and I was like, ‘Okay, I’ve entered into another dimension.'”

After Harry Potter, Tena had the opportunity to join another important franchise, Game of Thrones, where she played Osha, one of the wildlings living beyond the wall. Recently, she was part of another successful saga, joining the cast of John Wick 4.

“Yeah. I do some conventions and that’s always really nice because you get to meet fans. But at the same time, a lot of people, they might have a favorite character, but it’s more that they’re not really thinking about you. They’re thinking about the world and I think the world is what everyone’s obsessed with, really. I think Harry Potter works so well because at the core of it, if you think about it, it’s about a kid that is suffering child abuse and finds his family not in family, but in friends.
