About This Quiz

The Harry Potter series has pleased fans for years, and with the release of the "Fantastic Beasts" series, it doesn't look as though it will ever let up. J.K. Rowling has created the ultimate universe with a rich history and educational structure that will keep the stories coming for generations. While many of us love the books more than any other version, the movies are what really draw people in. And once people start watching the movies they fall in love with the characters. We can spot a character from a simple description; we know each character's hopes and dreams, and we know whether or not the character is a bad guy or a good guy. Additionally, we know what their facial expressions mean, how they look when their face rests and what they look like when they're casting a spell.

You probably could name every character from the Harry Potter movie and book series, but do you think you can figure out who's who if their eyebrows are missing? This is a Harry Potter identification quiz with a twist. We want to see just how much of a Potterhead you really are. Take this quiz to see if you can spot your favorite Harry Potter characters without their eyebrows.

Professor Dumbledore was played by two different actors, but few noticed or cared too much about the actor switch, as this was Harry's go-to man when it came to all of the strange things that had to do with the magical world.

When you really think about it, Uncle Vernon was one of the most evil characters in the series. Sure, he only wanted a sense of normalcy, but in the end, he was basically the direct opposite of Voldemort, making him just as evil.

Draco Malfoy wasn't born a bad person, he was just born into a bad family. It wasn't his fault that he wanted to impress his dad by being evil and attempting to kill Dumbledore. It was his pride.

What we learn about Severus Snape in the later installments of the series helps us to understand his actions throughout the earlier books and movies. The fact that Harry named his son after Snape shows how the student's attitude about the teacher evolved.

Delores Umbridge like two things: order and the color pink. She would do anything to ensure that everyone around her listened to her without any interruption ... including scarring them for life with a dark magic quill.

We all know and love Hagrid as the man who first introduced Harry Potter to the wizarding world. Because he was half giant, he was set with the task to bring the giants to the good side of the wizard battle. He did not succeed.

During the first few movies, we really one hear about Bill Weasley. However, he actually is a member of the Order of the Phoenix and he works at Gringotts wizarding bank as a curse breaker.

Luna Lovegood is a social outcast throughout the series, but when you look closer at her, she is an exceptional witch with intelligence that rivals Hermione's. It just goes to show that you can't judge a book by its cover, or a Harry Potter character by her eyebrows.

We all know Neville as the boy who seemed to always get in trouble, and not from his own doing. He gets set up with a wonky broom and the Cornish pixies attack him. He just can't catch a break.

Nymphadora Tonks is one of the coolest characters in the Harry Potter series. She can change her hair and facial features as she pleases ... just don't call her Nymphadora, she hates that.

We know Hermione as Ron's wife and Harry's best friend, but we often forget that both Ron and Harry thought she was a little too cocky for their taste. It wasn't Hermione's fault, though; she just didn't have a lot of social skills.

When we first meet Ginny Weasley, she is skittish and shy, but we later learn that that's only because she likes Harry. When she no longer has a crush on Harry, she becomes a strong, independent character who Harry dates.

At first, it seems like Professor McGonagall is a mean person. Later, we learn that this isn't the case. She is strict, but she is fair, and she doesn't put up with any kind of shenanigans.

Bellatrix Lastrange has a reputation for being absolutely insane, and when she breaks out of Hogwarts we learn that she lives up to that reputation. She dances and sings when she kills Sirius, but she's absolutely in love with Voldemort.

Ghosts exist in the wizarding world, and some of them can be helpful. When the main characters finally get Moaning Myrtle to settle down, she helps them figure out where the entrance to the Chamber of Secrets is.

Professor Trelawney seemed a little off the wall for a while, but we soon learn why Dumbledore hired her ... it was for her own protection, as she was the one who told the prophecy about Voldemort and Harry.

In the books, we learn that Fleur Delacour has some Veela in her blood. The Veela is a human-like female creature that can attract men. Of course, this really doesn't translate well in the movies, so it was left out.

Garrick Ollivander is the wand maker everyone goes to in the Harry Potter series. If you didn't get this question right, don't worry, he is definitely difficult to identify when his eyebrows are missing.

Yes, it is the same actor who played Walder Frey in the "Game of Thrones" series. However, in the Harry Potter series, he's a man who just wants to learn magic, as his entire family has magical powers, except him.

Rita Skeeter was a journalist who gave other journalists a bad name. She wanted nothing more than drama and adventure in her stories, and she would easily make it up if there was none to be found.

Cho Chang turned Harry down because Cedric Diggory asked her to the dance first. Of course, by the next book, Cho becomes Harry Potter's first kiss ever. He described it in the books as "wet."

While Madam Hooch was in the first movie, she seemed to disappear soon after. She did make it to a few chapters within the books, but in the end, her character seemed superfluous for the films.

Cornelius Fudge is the kind of Minister of Magic who gives us pause when we look at our own leaders. He is in denial for a long time about Voldemort's return, giving the press the option to lie without sources about Harry's telling of the story.

We know him by many names: Scabbers, Peter and Wormtail. In the third movie, we learn that he is the one who betrayed Harry's parents, but before he can be punished, he escapes and finds Voldemort.

Whenever people talk to Harry about his parents, they tell him he has his mother's eyes. However, they also tell him about how smart and bright his mother was. It was a shame she died, but she saved Harry's life in doing so.

Viktor Krum walked into Hogwarts a celebrity. He had participated in the Quidditch World Cup and then became a Triwizard Champion for his school. He may not have been the smartest contestant, but he performed well.

While you may think of the Malfoys as terrible people, Narcissa and Lucius deep down only care about keeping their child safe. We watch as Narcissa saves Harry's life by telling Voldemort he's dead once she learns that Draco is alive.

We all know and love Arthur Weasely as Harry's counterpart. He knows as much about the muggle world as Harry knows about the wizarding world at first. Additionally, Arthur is just as interested in muggles as Harry is in witches and wizards.

It's unfortunate that we didn't get to see the real Mad Eye Moody for very long on screen in the Harry Potter movies. That is, if you remember that the real Moody was replaced by Barty Crouch Jr. who drank polyjuice potion to trick Harry.

Lavender Brown had a brief romance with Ronald Weasley, but he had his eyes on another. She was a Gryffindor student who joined Dumbledore's army when Defense Against the Dark Arts was watered down for the students.

Cedric Diggory made his first appearance in the movies in "The Goblet of Fire;" however, he was in the books before that. He is the one Voldemort killed as soon as he came back into his body.

He was the first one to recognize that Professor Moody wasn't Professor Moody, but his son, Barty Crouch Jr. This ended up getting him killed, which was one of the first crazy deaths in the series.

We first meet Seamus as a baby-faced boy who accidentally blows things up, but then he becomes a jerk who doesn't believe Harry until it's too late. He ends up saving Hogwarts by blowing up a bridge.

While he doesn't get a whole lot of character development, Lee Jordan is actually a pretty great character. His wit and inability to hide the fact that he hates Slytherin make him one of the best Quidditch announcers around.

In the first book and movie, Oliver Wood is the captain of the Gryffindor House Quidditch team. He teaches Harry (and the audience) all about how the impossibly intricate game of Quidditch works.

Molly Weasley has a lot of children, and most of them are boys. To be the mom of five wizards and one witch is no easy feat. This turns her into a strong woman with a strong will, who is very protective.

We hear about her in the first movie ("Marge is ill"), but we don't meet her until the third movie, when Harry turns her into a hot air balloon, because she speculates on why Harry is such a bad seed.

At first, Kingsley Shacklebolt seems like a scary dude, but we soon learn that he is pretty laid back, and he is one heck of an auror. He does his job well, and he's a member of the Order of the Phoenix.

We all know someone like Gilderoy Lockhart. He's the kind of guy who lives on one moment ... a moment he probably stole from someone else, because he's too scared to take life on by himself.

From Madam Pomfrey, we learn that healing broken bones is no big deal, but when it comes to growing bones back (which is possible in the wizarding world), that is some tricky (and sickly) business.
