Vote! Your favourite Harry Potter character!
It's been one helluva rollercoster ride for everybody associated with the Harry Potter franchise -- the people who created it, brought it on screen and the legions of fans that have waited with bated breath for each of the releases, book and film.
One of the best things about the Harry Potter series is the fine detailing that's been laboured in the narrative. For instance, despite the massive cast, almost all characters are so nicely etched out -- they have their own quirks, individual personalities and even back stories that give us an insight into the people they are.
And we are sure all Potter fans have that one favourite character out of the whole team.
So tell us who's your favourite! Click through this slide show and vote at the end.
He's the boy who lived! He's the one around whom the whole story revolves and he's a legend who's acquired a family in his friends and a home in Hogwarts.
Though he's hailed as the only one who can destroy Voldemort, Harry has certain human attributes that make him endearing. You feel like holding his hand when he first steps in Diagon Alley, you want to hug him when he misses his parents and you squeal with joy over his victories.
