Many fans of Harry Potter grew up reading the series and were roughly the same ages as the characters, and now, new generations of younger fans are also falling in love with the wizarding world. Both younger and older fans alike have characters that they love and others that they can’t stand, and while these will vary from person to person, there are some characters in the fandom that are generally well-liked across the board.
Some of these characters are ones that fans would love to be friends with for many reasons. For example, Luna would be a great friend to rely on and to always be there for you while other characters, like Fred and Geroge, would be great to get up to some trouble with.
Bill Weasley is another character that fans would love to be friends with because he’s just so cool. Truthfully, most of the Weasleys — save Percy — would be great pals, but there’s something particularly fascinating about Bill. He has a cool job as a curse breaker, and his unique sense of style makes him very appealing. Plus, he’s overall pretty laid-back and plays by his own rules, so he’d be a good friend to hang out with and have adventures.
Spending an afternoon inside his hut would be cozy and welcoming. He could also introduce you to some amazing magical creatures — you’d just have to make sure he wasn’t bringing any dangerous ones home.
Fred and George are loyal and good people, but they are also just a lot of wild fun. They are big pranksters and jokesters, so you would have to put up with testing their products out on yourself. However, you’d also get access to some of the best joke products ever, and be able to get up to some rather harmless but exciting trouble with the twins. But while most of the friendship would be about fun, they are also loyal people when it comes down to it.
Tonks is another character that fans really love and wish they’d gotten to know more about. She’s a minor character who doesn’t get all that many scenes, but fans warmed up to her her right away. She’s unique and does things her own way, and she’s naturally fun and likable.
Tonks would be able to show you all of her Metamorphosis skills, and she has a light-hearted personality most of the time. You’d enjoy joking around with her and hearing her stories from being an Auror.
Similar to Luna, fans love Neville and wish they could hang out with him because he is loyal and good. While he might not be cool or conventional, he’s true to himself. He can be a bit of a dork, but this is ideal if you don't feel like you fit in either. Plus, he’s also extremely brave and not to be underestimated. Neville is a leader and also someone with a compassionate soul.
While there are many characters from Harry Potter that fans would love to hang out with, no one can really compete with the Trio. Individually, each of these three has their own strengths and weaknesses, and different fans like some of them more than others. However, it’s really the combination of the three of them that fans adore. Most people would love to get to be the fourth person in their group.
